It’s a little early, but I doubt anyone will mind. We’ve got some killer prizes thanks to our sponsors and our Patrons. Story is king in this contest, so go to your thinking place, or inspiration point, or wherever you go to find the muse, and get writing!

And all you beginning filmmakers who want an excellent camera, be sure to pay special attention to The Sisters’ Award. And don’t forget The Sisters other award, the Mr Rogers award, where all you have to do to win is find the most clever way of saying, “hey, that’s my monkey!”

OK, you’ve got your assignment and nearly 2 months to come up with a finished product. I’m expecting to see some great films in February.

I may be the only one that minds. I still haven’t gotten my computer:(. No big deal. I’ll get one and have 2 months to finish. I see that you used my idea and gave away SMP as a prize, or was that not why you decided to give it away? I really like the theme for this contest. A few questions, can a film win multiple awards? Can someone who all ready has a QuickCAm pro 4000 still win the sisters award? And can multiple entries be submitted? (Not that I want ot submit multiple entries, I’ll be hard pressed just to finish one!)

EDIT: DOH! I just reread the rules, multiple entries are permitted. My bad.

It’s a fine idea. I’ve had this in the works for quite some time, though. Paul at SMP was excited to do another contest with us. Hopefully we can generate some good traffic to his site in exchange for that great prize.

A few questions, can a film win multiple awards?

You’ll notice that the contest is structured so that prizes no longer overlap. So yes, a film can win multiple awards, but only by winning one of the Sisters’ awards in addition to one of the Brickfilms awards.

Can someone who all ready has a QuickCAm pro 4000 still win the sisters award?

This is entirely up to The Sisters, and my guess would be no. But I don’t know for certain how they want to handle that.

And can multiple entries be submitted?

Yes, and you’ll see that I’ve even bothered to spell this out on the contest page, as well as indicating that cooperative entries are allowed too.

A question for the sisters:

Would a variation of the phrase “hey, thats my monkey!” be acceptable? Such as “look, thats my monkey!” or “hey, its my monkey!”

I thought this contest’s theme was much better than the WOW (I didn’t enter, I had brickfilmers block). Gotta think of an idea now!

First of all, I love the title!

Would “being shown at a closed festival and being distributed among a limited number of people on DVD” be considered “made public”?

If the answer is “yes”, I’ll have to think of a story that really does fit the contest, or be late for my Brickfest PDX submission…

Great Idea, RevMen!

Is the story to be original, or can it be adapted from somwhere else (short stories, etc.)?

I see theres no time limit this time, so lets hope most people compress their films wisely. :twisted:

I think adaptations are fine as long as you’re not steering into copyright trouble. It will get hard to include “Hey, that’s my monkey!” though ;)

My hopes have been confirmed, thank you Josh. Thanks a ton to Esmerelda and Kim for creating the “Sister” prizes. Perhaps, I may stand a chance at winning a prize this time, but it’s doubtful. I am, however, a master of the etrange…

Also, what would be the age limit for the Sister’s prizes (Please don’t say 18, please keep James out of it….)
