    The Magic Portal, 1985-1989.

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

    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?

    To Smeagol: the longest brickfilm actually is one made by a user called “selavast”, and runs 4 hours. It’s only available on DVD, though.

    According to a book I got a long time ago, the first Lego space sets were produced in 1979. And the very first castle set in 1978.

    Well, even if it was made in 1979 or 1980, not 1978, what difference would that make? I don’t remember exactly when I did what when I was 11 or 12 years old today.

    The text really says it was shot on 16mm, which surprises me. Even in those days, 16mm film must have been quite expensive to toy with. The look still more resembles that of 8mm or S8 though but that may be due to various reasons.

    YouTube may have dragged down the quality slightly to make it appear to not be 16mm. Nevertheless, something about it just doesn’t seem like it’s from the 1970’s. Even if it isn’t, it could still potentially be the oldest brickfilm as long as it was made before The Magic Portal.

    YouTube says 8mm right in the description.
