Well, it’s older than The Magic Portal, which was made in the same way only three to six years later.

The ‘handheld’ camera almost felt smooth, but I guess it’s because it looks exactly like any other 16mm camera.

It looked the same as a “first time” film made in 2007 to me.

EDIT: The Director’s comments state that is was made in 1976 AND 1978. :?

Starwars wasn’t out in 1976, right?

While browsing around for Brickfilms on Youtube, I found this. Could this very well be the oldest known Brickfilm? I’m still in awe over the fact that the film was created without frame capture or editing software. I emailed Mr. Fernando Escovar, invited and asked him to discuss his film.

Enjoy!

Yes, thank you for noticing my film , I think it is the oldest Lego Star Wars
movie made on film. You have to watch it carefully at the end I have a legoman get his head cut off by a guillatine.

It’s pretty good considering everything you had back then. Can you confirm for us when you actually made it?

I think there’s an older brickfilm out there from 1960-something. I can’t recall the details but I remember it featuring a scene with a car outside in a nature setting. Does that sound familiar to anybody?

I believe that film was filmed on Super8 but I’d very much like to hear more about the technical aspects from fotographer.

I don’t remember a car in The Magic Portal, do you mean the shoe?
