How the Titanic became my lifeboat

Premiering April 2020


Hello Im Brynjar Karl, also known as “Brynjar the LEGO Titanic builder”. My story went viral when I decided, at the age of ten, to build a 6.33-metre-long scale replica of the Titanic, for which I needed over 56,000 LEGO bricks.

I reached out to the public with a video requesting crowdfunding to finance the cost of the LEGO bricks, and from there the international media followed my building progress all the way to the finish line. It took me 11 months to build his model, and the challenges I faced during the building process ultimately had a hugely positive impact on me. However, it was after the building was complete that my transformation truly began. Now I use my story to raise awareness about autism and try my best to shed a positive light on my brothers and sisters on the spectrum.


Coming April me and my friends will be premiering the documentary “How the Titanic became my lifeboat” A true story about how the LEGO Titanic project became a “lifeboat” out of my autistic fog and a way for me to stand stronger in life.  The film also features other amazing young people, that give us an insight into the diversity of autism. 

April is the month of autism awareness. I'm using the opportunity to showcase my film on this occasion and use it as a tool to motivate school systems and workplaces all over the world to celebrate diversity and look upon opportunities to include people on the spectrum and with disabilities into their spaces, boxes and structures.

If you work for an organization, school or a company that would like to host an educational screening in April, where the topics are celebrating diversity and inclusion, kindly send a message to and tell us more about how you would like to setup your event


The obligations we ask for is that:

  • You invite your guests to the screening for free.

  • Make sure there will be an organized discussion afterward about the importance of diversity in the school system and workplaces. 

  • Share with us the venue, images and a short report about the discussions so that we can share the outcome on our social media and hopefully learn from it, or bring ideas to others.
