NY Times on Making of “The Lego Movie”

by on February 7, 2014

The New York Times has spoken with The Lego Movie co-directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller and animation co-director Chris McKay (Robot Chicken) about the making of the new film. The article looks at the decision to fabricate the movie’s entire world out of Lego pieces, the decision process that led to selecting CGI (with real Lego parts) to simulate stop-motion animation, some specific small elements intended to make the characters and their world look as though they had been played with, the evolution of the character Wyldstyle, and the thinking behind one particular piece meant to look like several different “master builders” (and their entirely separate aesthetic sensibilities) had assembled a submarine.

The Lego Movie is in theaters now.
