Black Eye Piece . A hip-hop LEGO music video featuring a rather unusual minifig singer. Created by Paganomation for the LEGO Club Show in mid-2010. . "Black Eye Piece" is a music video we made here at Paganomation for the LEGO Club Show in 2010. It was the third music video we produced for the show, after "Zack, the LEGO Maniac" and "BUILD!". The title is an obvious play on "Black Eyed Peas" -- when we were first coming up with ideas for music videos for the LEGO Club Show, there were a lot of bad (i.e. good) puns thrown around for song titles. I won't reveal any of them here in case they end up getting made at some point in the future. Due to time constraints, there wasn't a whole lot of original building going on in this music video. The background sets are all modular buildings, with some city sets thrown in for good measure. A lot of the shooting and green-screening was rushed, something we tried to play off as looking like a "low-budget" music video. (You can see some very obvious blue tack in a few shots as well.) The time crunch was also why there are almost no production photos of the set or of animation in progress -- we had basically 12 days to setup, build, edit, animate, add effects, and submit the entire video in order to keep on schedule. The few photos we do have from the production are the character concepts we sent to LEGO for approval. Here's an unused concept for Louís on a Segway: An alternate costume for Louís: And photos of the extras. Note that those two guys from the Haycart Dragster make another appearance: I do think there's some good animation going on in the video, as well as our earliest attempts at using a fish-eye lens. I was also glad to be able to give SpastikChuwawa's "floppy arm effect" a try. Despite the tough deadline, "Black Eye Piece" has become one of our more popular music videos, mostly (I think) because of the strange concept and catchy nature of the song. Folks also seem to respond well to the "monocle/Bionicle" rhyme. Speaking of rhymes, here are the lyrics for posterity: BLACK EYE PIECE (Character is walking down the street talking to the people he sees) “Hey man!” (cut to LEGO minifig w/ surprised reaction) “Wassup, sideburns?” (cut to reaction of LEGO minifig with sideburns) ”What up, dog?” (cut to LEGO dog) Well my name is Louís I’ve got a black eyed piece Not a normal looking head Like my good friend Ted But if you’re looking for two eyes Then you’re in for a surprise Cuz we’re a little different From the rest of the guys See I’m a lot like Pete I’ve got two plastic feet And I’ve got two flappy arms So don’t be alarmed But when it comes to my face You’ll know that somethin’s outta place I’ve gotta black eye piece So just take it eas’ CHORUS Black eyed piece Gimme some of deez Black eyed piece Can’t bend the knees When I walk down the street It’s hard to see my feet Because I’ve got one eye Now I look up to the sky Well I’m way up here And never do I fear I’m not afraid of height With my supersonic sight Normal dudes just use glasses While I just use a monocle Hey look over there, son I think I see Bionicle? CHORUS Black eyed piece Gimme some of deez Black eyed piece Can't bend the knees Black eyed piece Gimme some of deez Black eyed piece Stuck up in the trees Writer: Roger Cameron Music: Architect of Sound Performed By: Regor Noremac Animators: David Pagano and Sarah Wickliffe Effects: Scott Decoteau
