As well as talking to me about my Micropolis display at SFW last September, Jakob from Brick Bakery also interviewed me about my contribution to the international Great Ball Contraption loop we had running all weekend.
I’ve already filmed my own video about the fantastic GBC loop of international stars from Skærbæk Fan Weekend, but as is traditional, Beyond The Brick always make their own video of the loop, usually with commentary from Tom Atkinson or Maico Arts, depending which continent they are on. Being in such esteemed company was a real honour for me, as was being interviewed by BtB about my own part of the loop (which starts at 18’12” if you want to skip straight to it). They published their video today.
This next Micropolis module was built as a special exhibition piece to include in my display at the international Skærbæk Fan Weekend in Denmark, held during the last weekend of September. I designed this distinctive block of residential apartments with LEGO Digital Designer, in the shape of the official Skærbæk logo.
The Great Ball Contraption layout at Skærbæk Fan Weekend in Denmark was very special this year. It’s the first time that three GBC big guns have been in the same display – namely, Tom Atkinson from the US, Maico Arts from the Netherlands and Akiyuki from Japan! The trio were brought together for the event by YouTube channel Beyond The Brick, who have been covering GBC around the world for several years. When I heard they were going to be there, I knew I had to take some of my own GBC modules to play along too.
One of the many brilliant things which happened during my trip to Denmark, and in particular my visit to the Skaerbaek Fan Weekend, was that I got to meet so many fantastic friends – new and old. One of them was Jakob from the Brick Bakery YouTube channel. Here is his inteview of me showing off my Micropolis models at the convention. Thanks Jakob, it was great talking to you!
