A Scots teenager's obsession with Lego has propelled him towards a film career after he produced an animated video for music producer Paul Oakenfold.

Morgan Spence, 13, was commissioned by Oakenfold to make it for the new single Who Do You Love?

The animation took more than five months to make and shows a day in the life of the DJ as he spins records in clubs across the globe, in scenes made entirely of Lego.

The video has been viewed more than 13,000 times on YouTube since it was released two weeks ago.

Morgan, from Kilbarchan, Renfrewshire, who attends Johnstone High School, said: "I couldn't believe it when I was asked. I was completely shocked. It was incredible for a superstar DJ like Paul to give me such an amazing opportunity.

"I've been collecting Lego since I was five years old – it has been a hobby of mine for most of my life. My room is like a Lego museum and I have thousands and thousands of bricks.

"I started making animations about two years ago using Airfix models for a school project and I went on to use Lego from there, but I never thought I would get an opportunity like this."

Morgan attracted the attention of the DJ when he applied for copyright to use one of his tracks for a film festival entry.

Oakenfold's manager, John Askew, was impressed with Morgan's creations and got in touch to ask him to make the video for one of his next singles.

Morgan then began the long task of putting together scenes using thousands of Lego bricks and more than 200 figures.

As well as an impressive club stage set, the schoolboy even managed to create a Lego lift, a helicopter and a plane for the video. The animation uses thousands of still individual images and the Lego pieces are rearranged between each shot to give the impression the characters are moving.

Morgan said: "Every 15 pictures I took made up just a second in the video. In total, I used around 10,000 pictures."
