Brickfilms Wiki

Nick Maniatis is an Australian brickfilmer. He is known for multiple contest-winning brickfilms from 2002 to 2007 including Good Company, Hit & Run, Jedi Chronicles: The First Duel, Dare to be Different and Interference, and for other films such as Doorway and Speed Demon!.[1]

A major figure in the early brickfilming community, he was the main influence in the development and proliferation of the LEGO minifigure walk and run cycles that are still often used to this day, as he posted a tutorial on his website in 2002 which remained prominently linked to in the old resources section for many years, and which was the basis for brickfilm walking tutorial videos that began to be made once YouTube became established.[2][3]
