About

Ghost Town is a fun and witty Stop-motion animated short feature film using LEGO bricks. 

Imagine if you took the story of Sleepy Hollow, made it a Western, and featured LEGOs in a fun and haunting stop-motion Spooktacular!

Ghost Town is the Sequel to the brickfilm titled America: Outlawed.  Please go watch this film if you haven't already!  The plot of Ghost Town furthers the adventures of the infamous bandits Flatfoot and Blackbart! 

My goal with Ghost Town is to continue with the high quality of character and story of it's predecessor film as well as greatly enhance the viewing experience by shooting in full HD 1080p.  Also I'm wanting to mix in 5.1 Surround to enhance the soundtrack as well as have fun with the surround speakers to create a more spooky and epic listening experience.

I will be shooting on a Canon DSLR 550D which will greatly enhance the picture for a more cinematic look and feel.  But to do this I will need to invest in additional lens.  In order to use the DSLR's HD capabilities I will also need to purchase new stop-motion software - Dragon Stop Motion.

So here's a list of new features I'm planning for Ghost Town:

  • 3D! (if goal reaches $8000)
  • Full HD 1080p
  • 5.1 Surround Mix
  • Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
  • Inventive new filming techniques never before used in a brickfilm
  • Smooth Animation (Possible 24 fps)
  • Large, grand sets to add to the epic scope of the western atmosphere

So now that you can see what are some of my production goals here is a list of needed materials and their expenses:

  • Nikon Camera Lenses (high cost)
  • StereoScopic 3D equipment and software (high cost)
  • Lens mount Adapters (low cost)
  • Dragon Stop Motion Software (high cost)
  • Misc connecting cables (low cost)
  • Additional LEGO pieces (high cost)
  • Additional lights for lighting and gels (med cost)
  • Black Magic video to PC connection (high cost)

As a form of respect for my backers I will be making updates on this site as well as my official website to show progress throughout.  Also I'm planning on taking plenty photos and videos for a "making of" segment for the DVD and Bluray.

I can't make the movie unless we hit our $4000 goal! So please pledge what you can and I promise that you will greatly enjoy being a part of brickfilm history!  Thank you, and please send me any questions you may have.
