For lunch on the Queen Mary 2 - Paderborn am Sonntag
Paderborn. Sebastian Brumby, Tim Darms, Timo Deutschmann, Tim and Luca Olszewski, Ben Pleininger and Julian Schlangenotto - the seven teenagers between 13 and 17 years have an unusual and time-consuming hobby: They are shooting brickfilms.
This is the term used to refer to films made of Lego-bricks and Lego-figures, which are created using a special technique known as the stop-motion technique. All movement sequences are recorded in individual images and later result in a liquid movement during fast playback.
Two brickfilms about the Queen Mary 2, which the young people had created within the last six months, were the reason for the British shipping company Cunard Line to get the group's attention and invite them to a visit to the real "Queen of the Seas". The Cunard magazine "The Queens" already reported on the film team from Paderborn and was enthusiastically impressed by the scale and detail-oriented Lego-model of the Queen Mary 2.
Equipped with the invitation and their VIP ID cards, the group now went to Hamburg, where they checked in at the cruise terminal in HafenCity on the famous Oceanliner and enjoyed a two-hour ship inspection as well as a 3-course menu in the stylish restaurant "Britannia".
Fascinated about the equipment, the size and the atmosphere of the ship and the friendliness of the crew, the guys already made plans for their next project on their way home to Paderborn.View article
