    Can you specify a compression limit

    Hey n00b, read the contest page. ;)

    Contest page schmontest page. I refuse to enter any contest where the rules in the initial forum post are not fully explained and exactly 100% correct, right down to the finest detail.

    And what about these prizes? Huh? You can’t just say “there will be prizes”.

    You people make my blood boil!!

    So the background and baseplates would not be considered part of the 10 elements. That I understand. What I’m want to know is whether or not the set would be counted. Say I included a “brick” wall or furniture sets or anything that would be considered background and not the main focus of the movie. Would those count?

    *Furnitures, I would most likely assumed, would be counted*
    I know you want us to think outside the box, but just to clarify things, you know.

    I’ll join, but I’m not interested in the prize.
    I sense a great amount of raised eyebrows. Here comes the scrutiny that’ll turn this contest thread into a war zone

    I would say yes, furniture will be counted, so it basically depends in how many elements it can be decomposed. (Be aware that all entrys are required to have a picture of every element used during the film). I would say a brick (real stone, not Lego) is more a background, as long as its structure is not a element of the film. (reads: having it in the backgound -> ok. having figures climbing on that wall -> prohibited)

    I edited the first post to include the full rules. Prizes are still only listed on the contest page.

    We discussed the music issue, and agree that this shouldn’t hold people out of the contest. As Christoph puts it:

    Christoph wrote: IMHO everyone should be allowed to use any music he wants. I think this
    contest more like a private party, where also nobody thinks about the
    copyrights of the CDs beeing played. In the end we want this to be an
    animation contest, not a composition contest :)

    So, though we do not encourage the use of copyrighted material (it will, for example, get in the way if you want to show your film at other places later), we will not disqualify a film just because it uses copyrighted material.

    One more word on the background issue: as I see it, a background/backdrop is something that would have looked just as well had it been printed and placed behind the set. To avoid confusion, I would discourage the use of Lego elements in the background.

    Oh, one more thing. You are allowed to play with multiple camera angles. No need for a fixed viewpoint.

    Stefan.

    Why should dialogues be forbidden? Of course you can use as much talking as you like.
