Morgan Spence Lego Movie

Local teenager Morgan Spence used his CHE funding to create a stop-motion animated lego movie about Paisley.


Morgan's three-minute film, which caused a storm on social media, features the town’s most striking buildings while Paisley “Buddies” are depicted in their most famous roles – from David Tennant as Dr. Who and the artist and playwright, John Byrne, in his studio, to pop megastar Paolo Nutini performing at ‘T in the Park.

As part of his funding, Morgan is also delivering digital filmmaking and animation workshops in 10 Renfrewshire schools.

Morgan Spence said, “Renfrewshire Council has supported my films for several years, involving me in Lego exhibitions back in 2013 and 2014. So it was a privilege for me to be able to promote the town in this way.

“My parents and grandparents went to school and worked in Paisley and I’m delighted to have been able to play a small part in enhancing the town’s bid to become City of Culture.”
