Action Bill - Behind the Scenes Featurette

Watch footage of  our team at AMAA Productions animate Action Bill and moments from recording Stewart’s dialogue and stills and storyboards from Action Bill!

Action Bill was animated using LEGO pieces over 14 days using Dragonframe to manage the over 4700 frames we shot over the course of production.

Afterwards, we added smoke, lasers, teleportation and other effects using Adobe After Effects and plugins from Video Copilot. Vocal tracks were recorded in our studios in Austin, Texas.

Hope you enjoy this behind the scenes glimpse of Action Bill!

Action Bill Available Online!
AMAA Productions is thrilled to announce that Action Bill, our LEGO stop motion short film, is available to watch online on Vimeo!
William Shatner travels back to Elizabethan England in a giant robot to destroy William Shakespeare. Patrick Stewart beams in to the rescue and must team up with Action Bill to defeat the ShatnerBot.
Everyone at AMAA Productions put a lot of love and effort in creating this LEGO stop motion short film. We had 14 days of production to animate a 5:07 film and had no idea what we were in for.
4700ish frames later and we started stitching the pictures together and adding laser beams, smoke, fire, explosions, and more to produce a film that we are really proud of.
We hope you enjoy watching Action Bill as much as we did making it :)
