The LEGO Da Vinci Code WIP in honour of Brickflicks 14 Feb 16

Part of the final scene in The Da Vinci code when Robert Langdon puts 2 and 2 together and makes..well…an implausible theory regarding the final resting place of the Holy Grail.

Robert Langdon walks past the Louvre and the glass pyramid where I snapped this quick shot like any good paparazzi. He then takes a poignant, dramatic pause at the glass ceiling before kneeling in prayer? Best part is the music.

I’m starting a short brickfilm of the final scene of The Da Vinci Code in celebration of BrickFlicks.

Warren Elsmore’s BrickFlicks Exhibition is currently on show at The St Enoch’s Centre in Glasgow. Brick Flicks brings to life much-loved movies by recreating them in Lego and features everything from sci-fi and drama to action blockbusters. The exhibition runs from Friday 12th February until 18th April and will showcase everything from family favourites Wayne’s World, Wizard of Oz and West Side Story to Tron and The Godfather.

I also wanted to play with the new Brickstuff pico lights I bought. I wish had the new receding hairline hair that comes with Peter Venkman in the Ghostbusters Dimensions Level set for Robert.

Lego Jurassic Park – T Rex Breakout scene. 01 Jul 15

I teamed up with Macrolegouniverse once more following on from the Back to the Future brickflick released earlier this year.

This time it was the turn of Jurassic Park to be ‘Legofied’.  The classic scene where the T Rex breaks out of her enclosure is remade in Lego.

Behind the scene photographs can be seen here:
