Not exactly unfamiliar with acting like an ass in regard to business opportunity, this site’s ownership was mentioned in regard to another suit….
The Video Professor’s court filing ups the ante on two other suits spelled out in the aforementioned Westword article. The first focused on Albany, New York’s Adirondack Manufacturing Corporation,…
“Film Brain” wrote: …the Brickfilms Award for Film Arts
In light of the discussion and revelations revealed in this thread this name and the use of the “brickfilms” term therein combined with the use of this site’s forums and chat to organize and carry out implementation would in all likelihood constitute trademark infringement. Of course,…[Read more]
Apparently he’s a hermaphrodite. He’s got breasts and is wearing women’s clothes (note the buttons on the shirt).
The torso is from a female figure in the Adventurers’ “Dino Island” collection.
“infurno” wrote: Just curious but prof, are you making a film ?
No, as I’ve stated many times before I gave up animation back in ’95 (or at the latest early ’96, I didn’t exactly mark my calendar at the time).
In addition to the lists above, I also purchased the following:
(2) Police Car
(1) Prisoner Transport
(1) Police…[Read more]
To cut off any possible problems ahead of time, there WILL be a MoB 2008 featuring a format similar to the last. That means any film wishing to qualify will be required to meet the same restrictions as last year. One change I am incorporating is the ability to do live screenings provided those screenings are not part of any other competition. …[Read more]
Oh, I also forgot I have a Town Plan sitting here too. Too many boxes. They take up about 60-70 cubic feet of space….

While I do own a bunch of old Lego sets dating from 1980 through 2002 (mostly the old Town series from my childhood in the 80s as well as the late 90s…[Read more]

Historians get paid well? Send me to whatever country you’re living in! Sadly, no, we don’t get paid well. In fact, high school biology teachers get paid more in some states than university…[Read more]

Catholics and Mormons are Christians.

Well, it’s a good $3000 slimmer than it was before, that’s for certain. I’m still trying to figure out where I’m going to store all of these boxes (I hate that Lego packages 500 cubic centimeter of Lego in a box that could hold five times that amount).
Purchased in the last month and having arrived as of this morning…

While there are earlier claims to the title of “first” brickfilm, the one that stands out to most people would be The Magic Portal. Perhaps something to that effect: the Portals, the Golden Portals, etc.
Prizes have been sent to both of the winners. Congrats again and thanks to all who participated or even just took interest.
BAFA is a horrible name as well. I realize being from England there’s a natural affinity to emulate the BAFTA awards but forcing acronyms which doesn’t make sense when spoken out (not abbreviated)* isn’t necessary. Just give them a nickname that actually sounds like something or come up with something that isn’t forced. Back in 2006 I believe…[Read more]
“Smeagol” wrote: Right, and also having such an award could cause newbies to withhold early test films.
I just noticed there is no “best animation” category. This seems to me to be essential.
Is it? Technically speaking, stop-motion animation is a visual effect just as CGI is. I see your point in differentiating though and a technical…[Read more]

I for one am by no means suggesting that. I’m simply trying to stress the need for an institutionalized system not dependent upon an individual. …[Read more]
“Smeagol” wrote: It could be argued that the criteria for judging should include BAFA organizers.
Thus to maintain fairness, organization should be institutionalized via Brickfilms so as to maintain the greatest representation of neutrality (itself impossible as bias will always exist in the minds of the members).
“Film Brain” wrote: I will make sure that it does not come down to simply me and/or Dave. That would not fair, since the awards should be deemed by a number of respected peers. To have an award simply voted upon by two people who be staggeringly pointless.
You simply can’t guarantee that it will not. Even if you could, the process would still…[Read more]

I would recommend an award with an outlined set of guidelines for who qualifies to vote, what qualifies as a film, and an annual set date for the awards to avoid the yearly (or so it seems) “when will the BAMPAs be held” questions/posts.
I also believe it’s in the best interest of brickfilming that this process be “official” in some capacity…[Read more]
