I am, like many Fuji users, a member of the FujiLove Facebook Group. All manner of photographic talent can be seen there. At the start of the year a photo popped up on the timeline from Malcolm Smith, which made me smile. Malcolm is doing the 365 Photo A Day Project, but has put a fantastically creative twist on it… He has created a story line using Lego Star Wars characters.
Each day brings a new instalment for Stormy the Stormtrooper, his buddies, and BB8. We see Stormy at work, trying to impress the boss, and at leisure, playing with drones and trying to build flat pack furniture. Meanwhile BB8 is doing undercover work. Will their paths cross?
What really caught my eye with this project is that the photographs are technically brilliant, but also engaging, witty and the story line has ebb and flow as well as just the right amount of tension. Who is a shadowy figure in the background of some shots? Will the boss like the coffee Stormy makes for him? And who has sent Stormy a Valentine’s card?
You can see the whole set of images to date, and follow the daily instalments over at Malcolm’s Flickr Account. Make sure to read the comments to get the full storytelling experience.
