Like video games, LEGO is often referred to as an activity predominately aimed towards young children, and the LEGO Art Documentary presented by the PBS Off Book Series illustrates the popular building block's creative potential and artistic possibilities.

The short film interviews three LEGO artists, each of whom specialize in a different creative field. Sean Kenney is an artist whose focus revolves around portraiture. His portfolio includes murals of famous celebrities and individuals who have outsourced his talent.

Alex Kobbs discusses the potential for LEGO to be used in a film medium. His portfolio includes the action-packed 'Bricks of War,' a stop-motion short featuring Gears of War characters in a LEGO universe. Compelling and informative, the LEGO Art Documentary demonstrates how LEGO truly is an all-ages activity. Stats for LEGO Artist Films Trending: Older & Chilly
