    I apologize for being a rules-poker but I wanted to bring something else up so you can clarify for everyone. Although it says that it’s not a special effects oriented contest, it does say that masking is allowed and that brings up the possibility of the same object appearing on screen more than once at the same time.

    To my thinking this would be a no-no but I thought we should get the official ruling before anyone starts with their “clever” workarounds.

    Also, a clarification for myself: changes in the lighting of the “set” – would that be considered a special effect at all?

    Ok im entering i think one question if you change scene can u change ur 10 bricks or do u have to keep the same ones? Like my main creature is the same but can i change a flower to a wall?

    the film must not contain more than 10 elements, that is in grand total. of course you can exchange elements from scene to scene but then you have to us less elements for your objects (i.e. characters).

    the rules about specialFX were intended to read something like: “what cant be seen, doesn’t count” everything else like duplicating elements, film in film and all that like will be treated like smoke or explosions or everything else.

    FX should only be used to make things invisible…

    No. But I would strongly disencourage the excessive exchange of backgrounds. While I think this should be ok. to indicate different sourroundings, it might also be used to tell quite some part of the story, which is not intended here.

    but I notice, there is a gray-zone in the rules about the backgrounds.

    hope this made things clearer,

    Sounds very interesting…
    I got to think twice about a story.

    2. Everything (from Lego or else) that can be detached without breaking is an element (see example below)

    Does tearing apart a chunk of clay count as “breaking” – just kidding :).

    Very interesting, this might be the first contest I take part in.

    so clay is infinite elements -> be carefull that it stays invisible ;)

    but I think nobody will complain about a lumb of blue-tack that wasn’t hidden properly.

    What about mirrors?

    Is a mirror considered a special effect or an object?

    I guess the reflected bricks would count as extra bricks so a 5 brick creature should be fine. But would the mirror count as an extra object? The mirror is kind of part of the set maybe it could be considered as a background…?

    The scene would be very bright and white, similar to hali’s doorway so there isn’t much more background or setting that could help to tell the story.
