Impressive stuff here, Dude! The change in the camera angle as the figs are in motion must be especially tricky. Awesome!

Thanks for sharing all these awesome tips. I plan on doing a beach duel. You say you bought the sword clangs and swishes from iTunes? Very helpful info. I've watched it like 5 times so far. :) Thanks so much.

Quoting Ben King Are the sword fights from apple or Star Wars? If apple, were they in imovie? If Star Wars, what category in the sound board? As I said before this is so epic!
The vocal inflections are the only effects from the Star Wars Soundboards. I used the Lego Clone Wars video game soundboard and recorded effects for the characters there. Technically speaking, then, Prince John is voiced by Lego Count Dooku, and Robin Hood is voiced by Lego Obi Wan. The sword clashes and scrapes, unfortunately are not available in iMovie. The particular ones that I used in this film are in the suite of sound effects that come with Final Cut exclusively. I realized in this project, though, that the "swishes" accompanying the clashes were equally as important, and I purchased some high-quality "swish" sounds from iTunes as well. Thanks for commenting!

Quoting Morgan Herman nice stop motion very smooth what animation program did you use
I used Apple's newest editing platform, Final Cut Pro X to edit together this movie. FCPX is not strictly a stop-motion program and doesn't have such features as onionskinning or remote camera control, but it can be manipulated to produce adequate functions and effects. The wobble blur on the sword that Robin throws, for example, is a post production effect, and all the frames have been color-corrected to some degree and tinted to remove some of the bright colors. Thanks for the comment!

Quoting Commander Xave Amazing! I have never seen stop-motion so fluid before! Although it would've helped to add a little color to the wall, this is very good work. Did you break the sword on purpose, or was it already broken? Anyways, great job. - Commander Xave
Thankfully, I had two swords, one that was already broken and one that was still all in one piece. I just did some quick interchanging between frames to simulate the effect. Thanks for the comment!

Wow Paul I am impressed! The music was awesome and the animation was superb! It shows a ton of skill that you changed angles a throughout the sword fight. I think that by doing that you made the action very believable. so kudos to you for that!

Wow .. Thats realy well made ... Not talking about the action at all cause thats just well. Let me get to the point: The parts where you play with focus and rotating camera angels and the sword in the wall being torren apart was just awesome stop motion ... A very very well done 1½ minute worth watching ... That was awesome ! Im returning to have you tell me all about how you made it when im no longer ill !!!! Great job !

Quoting Caleb S. very nice, but is that sword brick forge?
Thanks for the comment Caleb! Prince John's sword is 100% Lego with a little modification to make it fit into the scabbard. Robin's sword is actually a BrickArms rapier.

YOU CHANGED THE CREDITS!?!??!?! I loved the original ones, but great work anyway. Your camera movement is very smooth, and every strike by the swords is definite and visible. I loved doing the music and am looking forward to more opportunities. Thanks so much Paul!

Top notch animation Paul! I like the panning camera shots! That's something I've recently started playing with too. And MAX great music! Heh, now I want to score one for you Paul. Max gets first dibs though, of course! Wow, I'm very impressed! Great job both of you!
