The Dark Bat Rides An Elevator

The Dark Bat Rides An Elevator is a short Brickfilm based on an amusing play on words.

A challenge I faced when creating this film was figuring out how to portray the elevator buttons - they're important set pieces, as Batman interacts with them to set the whole joke in motion. After finding I was not achieving a satisfactory result using purely LEGO bricks, I decided to "do it in post!", as they say.

After some experimenting, I found the trick to making the buttons convincing was to use various effects and shapes which all drew upon the original footage to match things such as colour, lighting and film grain.
