About this project
The End of Magic is a fantasy adventure story I've been working on for some time now. I want to turn this into a Lego stop-motion animation, however, to really fulfill my vision for this story idea, I want to maximize the potential for Lego stop-motion animation. That is what this project is all about: creating new pieces for this video project. The pieces I have designed (the arms kits and female torso) and the custom minifigures of the characters are to help this Lego stop-motion project reach it's maximum potential.
Because these pieces will be created with high-quality plastic, they will have to be ordered in bulk. This means I'll have pieces to spare. Not only could this help others with the dynamics of their Lego stop-motion, but it could also enhance the overall Lego experiences for everyone.
With these pieces, I want to create The End of Magic as an epic Lego adventure by adding detail, design and better articulation. The entire stop-motion project will be done in HD. The soundtrack will be done by a professional musician and local actors will voice the characters.
Funding this project means you are helping to create this Lego stop-motion fantasy-adventure; it also means you'll be helping to create a better Lego experience with the production of these custom arm kits and female torsos.
The story of the design
If this project is successful I will be producing more custom pieces.

Risks and challenges
To create the custom pieces for the film with the best quality material possible I have to produce the parts in bulk. The cost of molds isn't cheap which is why I have set my target goal as such but it'll be worth it..
The filming will take some time but I plan to devote myself to this project as if it were a job. The more successful the project, the sooner I can finish the filming.
With any luck, parts or figures may run in high demand. To keep up I plan to use funds from the project to employ help with packaging, shipping and tracking orders.
I have been quoted on International shipping rates, but rates might change depending on where the order is shipped to.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Every figure you get comes with a song from the soundtrack, an arm kit and an unprinted female torso. Every reward above $5 will also receive a postcard from Virgeo Studios signed by me.
