When he posted a video of his recreation of the “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” trailer in the LEGO style online, 14-year-old Preston Mutanga, who wants to be an animator, attracted a lot of attention. Chris Lord and Phil Miller, who wrote and produced the film, were drawn to the video as it quickly became popular online.

Mutanga’s two-minute video astounded Lord and Miller with its sophistication and creativity. Despite his youth and lack of professional experience, the quality of his work impressed even the industry’s most renowned animators.

When it came time to make the latest “Spider-Man” film, the filmmakers approached Mutanga with a unique opportunity to contribute to the project.

Mutanga’s parents, on the other hand, initially questioned the legitimacy of the offer. They didn’t realize the opportunity was real until they met Patrick O’Keefe, the film’s production designer, who confirmed the contract with Sony Pictures Animation.

Theodore and Gisele, Mutanga’s parents supported their son’s passion and dreams despite their initial skepticism. His father, a medical physicist, went above and beyond to help him, purchasing a new computer as well as a cutting-edge graphics card for his animation work.

“Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” is currently dominating the box office, receiving high praise from critics and audiences alike, with a Rotten Tomatoes score of 96%.

Mutanga expresses his deep admiration for the original film as well as the opportunity to work with talented people. He aspires to be a full-time animator, having honed his skills by making short computer-generated LEGO videos since he was a child.

Mutanga’s success serves as an inspiration to aspiring animators and young artists all over the world. His tenacity, creativity, and ability to captivate audiences at such a young age demonstrate the seemingly limitless possibilities that await in the world of animation. He is undoubtedly a rising star in the industry, destined for a bright future in his chosen field, thanks to his talent and drive.
