Welcome to the online home of Oblong Pictures, an imaginary film company which specialises in making short stop-motion films using the popular children's toy, LEGO.

If all this monkey business inspires you to pick up a camera and try your hand at animation, there are lots of resources available to help you get started. The FAQ page will give you some ramblings and ill-formed half-thoughts about how I make the films. Alternatively, some of the sites listed on the links page will have more details.

I'll continue to upload higher quality versions of my films here but youtube links will be taking the place of the lower res versions from now on.

I've divided things up into two sections:

Proper films
