On Saturday at San Diego Comic Con 2014, Joe Meno (BrickJournal) moderated the A Look at Beyond the Brick: A LEGO Brickumentary panel which also features one of the film’s directors, Kief Davidson, associate producer Andrew Oppenheimer, and Tommy Williamson (BrickNerd). A surprise guest to the panel was Nathan Sawaya (BrickArtist.com).
The panel is pretty much what the title is. It took a look behind the scenes of the documentary that was released earlier this year at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York. There were clips from the film showing what LEGO meant for members of the LEGO community. Joe also showed off Tommy’s timelape animation for the film called Nerdception which you can watch below.
Overall, it was a really good panel and it was cool to see the room actually interested in what goes on in the LEGO community. Beyond the Brick: A LEGO Brickumentary will be available in theaters in early 2015. After the panel, Joe offered instructions for a 4-wide Batmobile, TARDIS model, and an LDD file of Olaf from Frozen to anyone who entered their email at the TwoMorrows booth. He has also offered these incentives on his Facebook Page. Check out images from the panel below.
