J.J. Abrams’ Summer blockbuster Super 8 is just around the corner, but as far as I can tell LEGO builder Friedemann Wachsmuth was in no way paid or reimbursed by the film’s marketing team for building this impressive Super-8 film projector. All of the important mechanical bits like the shutter are all built from LEGO Technics, and the only non-LEGO pieces used are the flashlight, lens and film reels. I’m pretty sure the 8mm film isn’t made of LEGO either, that would be really impressive though. And if you feel you haven’t gotten enough of the Hawaii 5-0 theme song this morning, check out the video I’ve included below to see the projector in action.
