WHO ARE YOU?
We’re The Plastic Fist. For your convenience, the name is at the top of the website.
WHAT DOES THE NAME MEAN?
We think Weasel was the first to joke that our name sounded like an activist group, but that’s not exactly the idea. It started off as a joke, but the more we thought about it, the more we realized what we are. It’s because so many times on this chat we celebrate our “aha!” moments when brickfilming, and we celebrate each other’s work and the projects we do together – like a victory fist. We work together, improve together, and challenge each other to become better and create amazing things.

WHEN DID THE PLASTIC FIST START?
Caleb started it. It’s all his fault. The first seven members were Caleb (TMBrick Studios), Lainie (Lainie’s Stopmotion Studio), Chris (Gold Brick Productions), Goblin (Goblin Animations), Josh (Josh Nelson Animations), Yozi (Yozi Productions), and Alana (Marcyln) – you’ll see them on the Discord chat as #the_og. It all began with Google Hangouts, but as people became interested, we moved to Discord and met more awesome people. Since then, we’ve been slowly developing into a brickfilming group and plan to go public with our collaboration projects
WHAT ARE YOUR FUTURE PLANS?
We hope to develop the Plastic Fist into a thriving community for brickfilmers of all levels to join, providing support and giving recognition to those who have extraordinary projects. Brickfilming is a brutal market on YouTube these days, and often the up and coming brickfilmers are overlooked in the mass of various other video types. Thus, we hope to become a portal for aspiring brickfilmers to showcase their work, connect with other artists, and develop their talents.
Additionally, we are in the early stages of planning a podcast. Though the Lego community has many notable podcasts, we aim to be fan-centered and engage with the community in ways established podcasts cannot or do not do currently. The podcast is still in the early stages, however, more information will be given as we develop.
