The 1st Annual Tongies. What a night. For those of you who don’t know, I was nominated for Best 2D Animation with my LEGO Castle video, and thanks to everyone that voted, I won! There were photographers, a red carpet, rock stars, and of course, the incredibly talented Tongal community. It was an absolute blast.

I remember picking up my dad’s camera for the back in 2007 and animating those little LEGO characters for the first time. Everything I made was pretty garbage but I had so much fun making animations I just couldn’t stop, getting better and better with every attempt. I never anticipated the hobby growing to what it is now, having made videos for Ed Sheeran and The LEGO Group itself. I mean, I’m still just a kid making movies in the corner of my bedroom, and it means so much to me to have an audience that connects with my work. You, the viewer, have had a profound, everlasting impact on my life, and I couldn’t be more grateful. Thank you.

I built this recycling drill thing for the ongoing ReBrick contest. I need “likes” to move on to the next stage of judging so if you have an account your like would be appreciated!
