A filmaker in the making, Morgan Spence, aged 13 from Kilbarchan, Renfrewshire has been making stop motion animation movies since he was 11 years old and has now amassed nearly 1 million views on his YouTube video channel.
Having started out animating Airfix models for a primary school project, he then produced some short Lego animated movies. The movies have strong story lines and are thoughtfully shot and edited. Morgan’s YouTube movies caught the attention of DJ Paul Oakenfold (composer of the Big Brother theme tune and Bourne movie soundtracks) who commissioned Morgan to produce a video for a new music track due for release in March this year.
