The Passion of Christ

Dan and Peter, 16 and 14 respectively, wanted to find a way to share the gospel story with their younger siblings and other friends. They came up with a LEGO film (actually not a true stop-motion Brickfilm, this is a slideshow of LEGO creations set to music).

View the other segments on YouTube: part 2, part 3, part 4, part 5

What a great way to connect kids with this story. My critique as a LEGO hobbyist is that the building is pretty simplistic, but there are some nice details like the brick-built donkey Jesus rides. They use fig placement, lighting and music well to create drama and movement to what could otherwise easily be a very static PowerPoint presentation. There are some nice moments of humor, like when Peter bursts into the room he hits another disciple with the door, and you spot random figures in the crowd scenes like a viking or R2D2. Via Faith and Family.
