"The Magic Portal is a short stop motion film that uses LEGO®, plasticene, cardboard and pixellated live action, made between the years of 1,985 and 1,989 on good ol' fashioned 16mm film.

The Portal takes him to a strange and surreal LEGO world where he has a close encounter with a Monster and barely escapes with his life.

However, the Portal has a mind of its own, and reappears to upset the cosy world of the giant spaceship and its crew to reveal weirder worlds more peculiar than the last..."
