Lego Coastguard - the Movie

Sponsored Post

The nice people at Carcraft have challenged a few bloggers to get creative with a Lego set and make our own movies! We were sent the Coastguard 4x4 with speed boat. My son and I (well mostly I) had fun making it yesterday:

Lego City Coastguard 4x4 and Speed Boat

This morning my daughter got up far too early to start making the movie with her little brother. 105 photos later she had a pretty good little show but it wasn't quite right.. 

Still from Lego Coastguard Movie

So I was roped in to be the camera woman once we had downloaded the official Lego Movie Maker app. This allows you to do stop motion capture and add sound effects on top! So we spent an hour taking various action shots and then 30 minutes putting voices and music on the top. All 3 of us are voice talents so see if you can work out which one is which..


  1. Well done guys! My boys loved it!!! ;-)
