BFG member Darren Taylor (Dt98films) recently did an interview for television at his home studio in Aberdeen, Scotland. Darren gained notoriety for making a popular LEGO recreation of SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING - Trailer IN LEGO which was released in December 2016. That video currently has over 620,000 views. The interview was for Live at Five on STV which is “Scotland's biggest daily magazine show bringing you the best local chat, stories, music, cooking and features from across the country.” Great and fun interview!
