The Lego Batman Movie – Promos

Millions of lego bricks.  Deva was tasked with producing a series of promos for UK’s Channel Four, featuring the self-described leading man of that ensemble – LEGO Batman. Working with only the base character geometry from Animal Logic, we developed the animation, shading and rendering system entirely in-house.

In all, we produced over 5 minutes of custom animation for this project, with Will Arnett’s hilarious voice-overs inspiring the attitudinous animation. Many of these spots we produced are included as special features on the DVD and digital downloads of The Lego Batman Movie.

Look development.

One of the biggest challenges was recreating the feature look of The Lego Batman Movie, with a fraction of the resources and time.  We created a custom lighting and shading system, and rendered on our hybrid CPU_GPU pipeline.

Face and character rigs.

We built the facial animation toolset and character rigs entirely in-house, enabling the animators to work efficiently and capture the hilarious expressiveness of the character.
