    10 elements overall, credits allowed at either end (but I’d recommend keeping them short) and the whole thing to be no more than 2 minutes long. It’s that simple.

    I can’t say for definite, but I would guess that if the credits further the story in any way, they count as one or more elements. If it’s just a fancy CGI thing with the title of your film spinning like a top and giving off flashes of lightning, I’d call it one element. And a pretty annoying one at that.

    Actually, no. If it’s not related to the story in any way other than to announce its title or say who made it, I’d say that a credit sequence doesn’t count as an element. Not that my opinions count for much – I’m not one of the organisers, after all.

    That’ll teach me to post before breakfast.

    Looks like you could have just one brick, if that was really what you wanted.
    And please, before you post a question, check the official rules. They’re really short and simple, and they’re on the main page. Here’s another link anyway: Ten Brick Contest Official Rules

    Buxton, do what I am going to do. Have the start and end credits going while the action starts and ends. It’ll save time and look professional.

    Exactly my thinking… ! thanks Buxton.

    Ok, I’m sorry to ask yet another question, but this hasn’t been asked yet and I think that it is a valid question. We’ve already established that an effect is an element. My question, is that if you use the same effect multiple times, is that one element, or does it count as one element every time you use it? Since you are allowed to use the same elements more than once, my first guess would be yes. However, since it isn’t an effects oriented contest…

    Also, someone early asked if it multiple entries were allowed. It was never answered, so if someone could answer it, that would be much appreciated.

    Oh, and would decals count as elements?

    The same effect used twice would be one element. Its still the same effect as it woulf be still the same brick.

    Multiple entries are allowed. However a single director may submit only one voting ballot on which he is not allowed to vote on his own films.

    Tricky ground here… I would say: yes they are independent elements. However, this leaves the question how to deal with printed bricks, or with such that are fabricated with a decal. I would say that a printed brick (since it cant be separated) is one element, whereas a brick with a decal is two elements. Since these two cases might be difficult to distinguish, it might be wise to avoid ‘decorated bricks’ altogether or to provide a parts-number for the printed bricks.

    hope this made things clearer,
