Director's Comments

The story is quickly told: The invention of the wheel is the largest and most important invention of mankind. Without the wheel, we had no electricity, no cars, no light, no bicycle, no elevator, no cell phone, no plane, no Internet - and would therefore never landed on the moon.
But this invention is not immediately met with general approval - and from this tells Stone Time.

Staff Review

An extremely enjoyable brickfilm. Every shot has something to look at and admire. One thing that you really should admire about this film is the lighting Mario has it spot on and he pulls off very convincing sunlight. We follow a bunch of innovative cavemen as they come up with simple but brilliant inventions and discoveries. To show us the consequences of these discoveries Mario treats us with some bold flash forwards showing us the evolution of human tools. The animation is lovely with something in frame which is pleasing to watch such as the primitive cinema the cavemen invent. Watch this film now because it's super!
