Back in 1973 when I was 12, together with my younger cousin I made a 6 minutes Lego film in Super 8, half of it using stop motion animation. Inspired by the popular Apollo program, we built a rocket with several stages and room for the LM, a launch vehicle, an aircraft carrier and many busses, cars and houses.
Minifigs were not invented yet, so we used small 1×1 brick men.
The film was a gift to our grandparents’ golden wedding anniversary.
After the party our grandparents took the film and us to Billund, where we showed it to Godtfred Kirk Christiansen. He liked it and had a copy made. We, in turn, got a Lego factory tour and got some big sets to take home
Was your movie the first Lego animation ever made?
