Make movie making fun.

After a few animated creations, I put together this quick trailer from our YouTube videos for the channel, showing some of our LEGO® fun over the years.

  • Build videos - Time lapse builds of all the sets we obtain.
  • Animation - Create fun brickfilm animations for all.
  • Take requests - Lego Zombies was actually requested by a viewer.  So, get in touch always happy to hear from you, and your ideas

Blu-Tak was a quick camera setting test for a few seconds.  As well as being a little bit of fun.


Sumo Films was founded 24th July 2013.  With the first YouTube videos uploaded being very quirky little productions on the 31st July 2013.

What do we do?


​The Team

Why Sumo Films?  This is a question that has a very simple answer (if you know me).  There is another YouTube channel in existence.  MisguidedSumo started in 2010 as a task of something to do when there is nothing to do.  Doodles was how I used to refer to them.  MS Paint and windows Movie Maker.

It was after the first few YouTube videos that I, and a now interactive audience started to play a game.  This game was fondly referred to as "spot the sumo".  The character would be drawn in to frames and would sometimes be a single flash on screen that would need to be quickly spotted.

Origin - Why LEGO?

After a couple of years, I started to try out new media and production styles.  LEGO® being a popular one (as there was plenty around).  Still using the spot the sumo in these YouTube videos.  I created a business Sumo Films as the little doodle had become quite the symbol for me.

And even though I now work with LEGO®, I use my original doodle of him and refer to him as 8-bit man due to the pixelated drawing in MS Paint.
