We are David Pagano (/u/paganomation) and Dave Pickett (/u/davidmpickett) and we both make our livings creating videos using LEGO bricks. We recently co-authored “The LEGO Animation Book”, which teaches you how to make stop-motion animated films using LEGO bricks and is currently available in English (https://www.amazon.com/LEGO-Animation-Book-Make-Movies/dp/1593277415/) and German (https://www.amazon.de/LEGO®-Filme-selbst-drehen-Stop-Motion-Technik-einsetzen/dp/386490434X/). We also run the blog The Set Bump, which covers all things related to LEGO animation.
David Pagano is a LEGO animator and writer and the founder of Paganomation, a NY-based production studio that has produced dozens of LEGO stop-motion shorts, music videos, and commercials. His work has appeared everywhere from BrickJournal to The Wall Street Journal.
Dave Pickett is the LEGO filmmaker behind BRICK 101, a digital media company that produces and distributes videos featuring LEGO products and pop culture references that entertain, educate, and inspire building enthusiasts of all ages.
We’ll be answering questions starting at 1 PM EST until 3 PM EST.
