Brickfilms Challenge Series #2: Time Runs Backwards.

This is the second brickfilms challenge series and the theme for this challenge is something very interesting; “Time Runs Backwards”.
This idea came from ahnt. Your films should be animated backwards as if time went backwards and not normally (forwards).
So for example, You would have to animate your minifig backwards instead of the usual way.
As for what your backwards short is based on, it can be based on anything random, or would a short plot, that you want.

Deadline and Submission:

The deadline for this contest is June 31st. Films are submitted by creating a new thread in the Post & Review forums which describe your film and provide a link to where it may be viewed. This may be done at any time prior to the deadline. The title of your thread should be in the form of “BCS#2 – film name“.

A Few Small Rules:

  1. Films may be posted in any format but keep in mind that judges who cannot view your films will not be able to vote for it. [/*]
  2. Films should be between 20 seconds and two minutes in duration and filesize should not exceed 10 megabytes. [/*]
  3. You are not allowed to animate normally and then edit your film so that it goes backwards. You must animate it backwards and not cheat.
    If we happen to find out you did this (which would be hard) you will not be allowed to participate in any Brickfilms Challenge Series.[/*]
  4. You are not allowed to use CGI, Stikfas, Bionicles etc.[/*]

Judging:

Judging will be decided by a poll in the Contests and Film Festivals forum, like the last challenge.

Prizes:

Like last time, there will be just a single prize offered for this challenge, a Brickfilms T-shirt, or something similar.

Thanks:
I would like to thank ahnt, BertL, Darkman, Dave, Numbuh23 Rsteenoven, zane eastwood and thickasabrick for assisting in the creation of this challenge.

That’s what the thread will look like but will not be posted until it is time for the challenge (when MiniMation’s prize is sent).
If anyone finds something that could be added, please tell me in this thread.

That is one of the problems, there is no way you could tell if they animated forwards or backwards, they could take all the frames, and arrange them so they are backwards without having to put them in reverse in an editor.

Yes. I am thinking to mention about editing so it goes backwards (so hopefully nobody will think of doing it).

Well we could make a test, one were we animated backwards and one were the animation goes backwards ?

And than we will see the difference maybe?

We could do that. I can’t at the moment because my camera is connected to my lap top which is getting fixed :cry:.
But all we need is someone to do a couple of seconds of normal animation and then edited so it’s rewinded, and someone actually animating it backwards.
Whoever does it tell me in this thread, and i would prefer if the person just did a short and simple walk-cycle.

By the way, I am more worried about FAR now, so we’ll discuss this challenge until the prizes for FAR are announced.
Use ahnt’s thread that is announced for brainstorming for prizes, please post. This is why I invited new members.

You know, I think I might be entering something in this.

(BTW, why not Stikfas/Bionicles?)

Oh. I didnm’t think you would be entering, I suppose it doesn’t matter as much, for this contest anyway…
And for the Stikfas, I would rather if it were LEGO products being used. Saulgoode had it that way for the previous challenge, so I thought that it may as well stay that way.

Thanks
