    EDIT – Results page is ready, judging comments will be posted over the next couple of days, results will be announced in the Brickfilms chat at 10pm GMT on Friday 1st July 2005.

    Since Weirdears is never likely to make this film he announced some years ago, I raise this challenge, to avoid the waste of such a good movie title.

    To the director of the best film entitled ‘Anne Frank in Bricks’ I will donate a Patron D account.

    There are no rules and no deadline, and my decision is final. All films remain your own property and responsibility and should be posted as normal to this site. Just PM me with a link also, so I can keep track of entries.

    When I feel there may be enough entries, I will give six weeks notice of a closing date, to allow people to finish off their projects.

    If you are already a Patron of some kind, a financial arrangement re renewal or an upgrade can be reached.

    So….have fun and don’t be too po-faced.

    I think you’ll find Weirdears owns copyright and trademark on that film.

    Should Weirdears himself choose to object to the use of the title, I will happily reconsider. However, I would hope he will consider this challenge an honour in recognising his unique talents in film naming, and decide to complete his film and enter it for the prize. For once, I am not kidding around, nor am I dissing Weirdears. I just absolutely love that film title and want to see what creative people can do with it.

    As for the film itself, I don’t see how he can copyright a film which has not been made. The films themselves could contain anything, and the story of Anne Frank (should any director choose to include any of the story in his/her film!) is in the public domain.

    As for the deadline Amped, I don’t anticipate being around in 2100, so it will be sometime before then. I did not want to put any deadline pressure on people as there are a number of competitions on the go at the moment.

    Consider this to be less a competition and more of a challenge, along the lines of the X-Prize. I would like this to inspire people to think outside the box and produce a truly imaginative interpetation of the film title. Therefore, the challenge will end when I believe someone has produced a film worthy of Weirdears’ magnificent title. To be fair to others making a film, when I receive such a worthy effort, I will announce the six week run-in so they get time to complete their effort.

    My purpose is to inspire people to film and promote the patronage of Brickfilms. As a non-filmmaker in this community, I feel it to be my duty to inspire people to film. By setting a number of varied challenges, such as the excellent 10 Brick Contest, and hopefully this, film makers should be able to find inspiration and improve their techniques through their membership of Brickfilms.

    Saw the trailer, and here’s what I have to say:
    Wow, that’s so brillient, WeirdEars. This has to be the most embarasing trailer I’ve ever seen in my life. How could I ever forgive you. :roll
    Seriously, the bycicle bit spoilt the trailer, the same with the robot voices.

    I’m sure the people entering this contest would make a better version of what it’s going to be like.
    Good luck to all of you! :wink

    The bicycle bit, I just rolled on the floor laughing. It’s so weirdly funny.
