So how are we all going with our entries?

On track? Behind schedule?

Haven’t started?

I’m well and truly in post production now, but I haven’t looked at it for about a week and a half.

Haven’t started. Trying to get my other project done, then I’ll spend a weekend and do this. My song is only about a minute or so.

I have a music video done.

It’s only 33 seconds, and not made specifically for BrickFest, but if I don’t have time for a more elaborate work (which is not unlikely, with 4 busy weeks to go until vacation), this one will enter the competition.

I dunno about me. I’ve animated about 1.5 min. The song lasts for 4 min. and I’m quite unsure if I’ll get it done. It takes so much time. I work and work, but the progress is so small. If I get it done I promise you that it will be good! :)

I have well over a minute shot for a 2 minute clip. Some of it is quite good, some of it I have found better ways to animate and intend to reshoot.
Jared has made progress with the credits and titles and is preparing to edit my mass of clips into a coherent film.
I’m a slow animator and have been averaging about 15 seconds a week…
In any case, I’m sure were going to make the deadline and have high hopes that this will be a well recieved entry. :D

Basically, if you had begun something, but have not yet released it to the public, then the music video can be considered for this competition.

oh no!

That means I can’t enter the man with the cane, right?

I hope that somebody corrects me.

Try contacting Todd and see if he has a problem.

You released it after the contest was announced and in past contests, that was allowed.

I’ve done some quick storyboards to get the timing right, built a handful of sets, borrowed a bunch of bits from another AFOL, ordered some other stuff from bricklink and designed some of the CGI sequences.

No actual animation yet though. I still need to do some tests to make sure that I can do stuff like slow-mo walking convincingly.

Incidentally, if anyone (preferably UK-based) has 3 white crash helmets they can lend me, I’d appreciate it. There’s a free VCD of the finished product in it for you.

Just started building sets, and finished the first 2 seconds of a chorus. Hoping I can finish in time (if I don’t get bogged down with the special effects I have planned)

I am bit behind, I just finished overcoming my lighting issues so I should be strolling along in no time. The sets are about 50 % and the Main character is coming along nicely as well. I also hope the special effects I want to accomplish won’t bog me down.

Man, I still haven’t started animating. There’s a tantalising hint of a glimpse of a shot from the film on my website though.

Anyway, what I actually came here to say was this:

I was going to email Todd, but thought I’d post here and see what others say.

Firstly, I’d like a date (and rough time too if possible) when we can expect to hear the results. It doesn’t have to be exact, just so we don’t all die of antici… …pation waiting for the announcement.

Secondly, what are the chances of getting someone to do a short write-up of the animation events for us poor overseas folk who will never attend a big screening of our work? Am I right in thinking Doug or Jared is going this year?

Yes, we are going. That is, we intend to- I’m trying to register but the automated process isn’t cooperating. I’m still waiting for the password to access my account page…

As for a write-up, that’s already been arranged as well. RevMen aksed us to do one and Jared said he plans to videotape audience reactions like he did last year.

I didn’t want to ask or assume anything…

Why did this let me post without my password? Revmen? Wandrer? Mods???

This is weird.

Oh, Monkeys… this is Yolegoman here, and I posted, Logged out, without my username… Uhoh.

And also, you can’t use usernames already taken. Hmm. So anyway, I can’t use Yolegoman, cause I already registered it.
