I usually shy away from clicking “related videos” links — there are about 14.2 million LEGO videos on YouTube, and it’s way too easy to fall down an internet hole and never come out/get any work done.
This time my curiosity got the better of me, and I was delighted to find “Late for Work Again!” by Brick a Brack Studios. It’s your standard “Spider-Man on patrol” tale, but it’s got some neat touches. The dialogue and pacing are strong, there are some neat cameos (love the custom LEGO Marvel characters), and there’s a nice fourth wall break in the middle that leads to some interesting scale work. I think what really impressed me was how much it felt like a Spider-Man animated short — moreso than the last live-action movie, I’d say.
It may not be the most technically impressive short, but it’s definitely worth checking out. I guess Dave was right to be curious about the many hidden gems of brick animation waiting for us out there…
