This photo was taken back in 1991. Lego was such an important part of my childhood. If you think I love music and film now, it’s nothing compared to how much I loved Lego as a kid. I spent every last dime I had on lego bricks (not unlike filmmaking now).
It’s a little embarrassing, but you can see how I used to use the cheaper bricks in the back to make up for the fact I didn’t have enough of the more expensive white bricks. I was inspired by the exhibition homes that I used to force my suffering family to visit when I wanted to become an architect (now I make scripts – the blueprint for a film – not a house). A lot of houses which were designed to look more expensive than they were used to be brick in the front, and weatherboard in the back.
