Before I start filming, I have to ask ONE more question. Would it be OK if my film takes place on a hilly landscape? The hills will just be brown and green with no vegetation.

All entries must be received in the form of an e-mail containing:
1. a working (for the time of the contest) link to at least the small version your film.

Does this mean the link to the movie will have to be published here for everyone, or will you copy all entries to a central place (like an account on the brickfilms.com server) from where people will be able to download? The reason I ask is that I have no idea what kind of traffic a contest like this will produce.

We will host the entries for the voting period (and shortly therafter (30th Nov to 15th Dec)) on Brickfilms webspace. (thanks Revmen :) ) This is to ensure that all files are available to everyone during the voting procedure.

In the WoW contests my netry with about 8MB pruduced something like 3GB of traffic.

Another lame question before I start filming: would a picture of a minifigure be counted as one element?(Example: Hali’s film Dare to be Diffrent)

Good question. Keep in mind that I had one separate photo for each movement in that film. I had lots of cut outs to get that effect.

I still think that most of these questions could have been avoided if the rules were along the lines of :o ne baseplate. one single colour backdrop. 10 physical BRICK elements (ie that come as part of a set for construction). but that’s me.

before the judging ends? yes!!!
Correction:
before the judging starts? We did not make rules about that. So fell free to post your entries at any time you like.
actually, there is a rule about this which forbids making the films public before the submission deadline

a very difficult one. As long as the picture does not change I would say yes. If it does its more like a movie within a movie so I would say every element counts. Basically, its the same question if you could have a photo of a Lego set as background.

we just did not think that people would be that creative in finding loopholes in the rules. :)
After all our intention is quite clear.

corrected on 21st of Nov for obvious nonsense :oops:

The rules say:
“Entries cannot be made publicly available until their presentation via the Contest web-page shortly after the submission deadline. “

I think it’s better that way. If people who have already finished their’s publish it now it could be either discussed to death or hyped a lot, while other films don’t get as much recognition, simply because they are only available in a period where people have to watch all the other entries, too. But that’s just my opinion as someone who will finish his movie near the deadline ;) .

Just curious..
Will there be any feedback in regard to if our film links have been received?
Would hate to miss out from a ‘technical error’…
.. Ok, ok it would likely be a ‘stupid user’ error but still.
Thanks

I think Brickbrock intended to make a list of entries received thus far.

I intended to make a movie for this contest, but never came longer than building the set. The two reasons to this was that I didn’t have time, and that my camera didn’t work.

Here’s how the set looked like:
