Just for clariity, here are the rules again:
1. The film must not contain more than 10 visible elements.
2. Everything (from Lego or else) that can be detached without breaking is an element (see example below)
3. Every element visible (apart from background and optional baseplate) will be counted.
4. This is an animation contest, not a Special Effects contest, so the use of effects other than masking is strongly discouraged. Visible items like digitally added smoke, laser beams, etc. will be considered ADDITIONAL elements and are therefore only to use if there are no more than 10 elements INCLUDING the special effects visible during the film (rule 1).
5. A still picture showing all elements visible during the film must be included in the credits.
only elements will be counted that are visible at any time of the film. Supportive structures that either remain hidden or are edited out in postprocessing by masking will not be counted.

MUSIC & SFX do NOT count as elements. you can give your horse a ride in that case 😉
copyrighted material should not be used anyway.
i would say: copyrighted music IS prohibited in the 10BC.
but this is NOT the last word about it. i sended a email to stefan and christoph so we will decide together….
… and now: happy planing YOUR 10 Brick Movie….
the bottle would count as a element. but with one brick stepping around the bottle: you still have 8 elements left….October 18, 2004 at 6:02 pm #63733

Can you specify a compression limit
Hey n00b, read the contest page. 😉
Entries must not be longer than 2 minutes.
To ensure, that also non-broadband users can download most of the films we require a version of the film with a resolution of max. 320×240 and a max. size of 2MB encoded in either RealMedia or DiVX.
In addition to that, a high quality version may be submitted. This must not have a filesize bigger than 8MB and should be as well in either RealMedia or DiVX.October 18, 2004 at 8:23 pm #63764
