When I was contacted by their PR rep I immediately jumped at the chance to interview Oscar-Winning, Daniel Junge and Oscar-Nominated Director, Kief Davidson. As an added bonus I also got to speak with LEGO brick artist, Nathan Sawaya.
In the past Daniel Junge has worked on documentary such as Iron Ladies of Liberia, They Killed Sister Dorothy, Saving Face and Fight Church to name a few. Co-director, Keif Davidson is best known for his work on The Devil’s Miner, Kassim the Dream and Open Heart. Check out my interview with them below.
As aforementioned, I also spoke to former lawyer turned award-winning brick artist, Nathan Sawaya. Not only does he work on his own pieces but he also works on commissions from his website, Brick Artist and has recreated classic works of art for his global touring exhibition. He also started The Art Revolution foundation in an effort to make art a higher priority at school and at home. Check out my interview with Nathan below.
