East Georgia State College student and Twin City native Benjamin Ely has a unique skill: making stop-motion films. These films primarily feature LEGO® bricks and involve creating the narrative one frame at a time. Ely has won many awards for his videos, and he will showcase a sampling of his work on March 28, 2019 at 4 p.m. in Room C-101 (the tiered classroom) on EGSC’s Swainsboro campus.
In addition to winning various animation contests online and being featured in national and international film festivals, Ely has received recognition from the LEGO® company for his animations and garnered a moderate following in online animation communities.
Ely stated, “As a student of EGSC and a part-time contract animator, I’m excited to show my films on a larger screen to a local audience for the first time.”
