Stop motion drifting sensation Snowkhana is back!

December 16, 2016

How many can you spot? The latest festive stop motion animation Snowkhana video is a test for movie buffs as tiny superstar Mental Block drifts his way through a host of favourite Christmas blockbusters.

Created as a tribute to the Gymkhana videos starring YouTube sensation Ken Block, the Snowkhana series has built a loyal following for the lovingly created clips which rely only on tiny toys, loads of LEGO bricks and painstaking patience to photograph each slightly different frame – including a nod to the John Lewis Christmas advert.

The latest instalment – “Snowkhana 5: Ultimate Festive Blockbuster” – is ready to watch now

The cast also included cameo roles for Batman, Ben 10, The Lone Ranger, Raphael the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, and a minion from Despicable Me. And the whole thing was put together in just over a month with materials including 17 LEGO trees, 11 cans of snow spray, seven cardboard buildings, one large can of expanding foam – and a pair of ladies tights, used to help make the trampoline netting in the John Lewis advert scene.
