    Some people were asking me is that have to be exact 10, or could 10 and under? But anyways, i made 10. Posting this for my friend. 🙂

    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

    your time Chris, and nos.

    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,

    I can now turn my quick time movies into real player movies. I am having problems with e-mailing it though. When I click download it says file not found. I can click on save target as but I don’t know if the person reciving the message can open it up. I wouldn’t care otherwise but having realplayer is one of the requirements for the contest. :evil

    Are you trying to Email the actual file? Don’t do that. Instead, upload the film to brickshelf (tutorial on how to do this in the Resources) and email a LINK to the film.

    BTW, Thanks brickbrock, all f my questions are answered and I can now get to work 😀 .

    Are we allowed to show “thin” bricks that are holding multiple base-plates together? I accidently showed one in a shot – but not only is it the same color as the base-plate, but it isn’t part of the story in any way. Is this all right?

    I think I speak for all organisers if I say we won’t disqualify you for such a small issue.

    Stefan.
