Paddy Keenan As A Lego Figure

GearodandChris, creators of this YouTube clip, faced some unusual, though perhaps not unique, challenges while making the short stop-motion animation of Irish traditional music using Legos: ‘Tried to make the Uilleann piper look like Paddy Keenan using the Lego Indiana Jones. Had to pull his arms out of the body to make them meet in the middle to hold the chanter, so they kept falling off every other shot. Also had to remove the flute player’s left hand to make the correct grip on the flute, so if you look close you can see it’s not attached to the arm. No way to get the banjo players picking hand to move, oh well.’
