“T” make certain that you do not show any more segments of your video in a public way. You may show members of the Brickfilms community to get ideas and have things proofed. Do NOT post the film here until the contest is over. Serious video and animation festivals do not allow you to publicly preview the video prior to some of their festivals and we have adopted this rule as well.
Don’t worry I wasn’t even up to plan to show it here before the contest. :winkNovember 3, 2003 at 6:31 pm #20763
Could the contest name be tweaked to be ‘The history and future of flight’, or is this implied?November 4, 2003 at 9:04 am #20886
“the rules” wrote:
The future history of flight may also be portrayed and moments involving space flight are welcome since space flight is considered part of the History of Flight.

Wow, I definetly didn’t notice this thread until today.
I’ve got to get a computer so I can start working on this!November 5, 2003 at 3:45 pm #21048
I’m curious – why the requirement for “lego” brand bricks? I always thought “Brickfest” meant “brick shaped building blocks” and not just “Legos”….or is “Lego Elements” some specific product other than just their bricks.
The rules are very specific, “only the depiction of Lego Elements will be allowed”, “Any competition entry found not to be using Lego Elements or using principally other non-Lego Elements will be disqualified”.November 6, 2003 at 6:35 pm #21232
Sorry, I haven’t checked the BrickFilms in a while. I will post this answer to your question.
BrickFest is a convention of AFOL’s; Adult Fans of LEGO. MegaBlocks, Tyco, etc. are poor substitutes for the quality brick that the LEGO Group produces.
Having said that, the rules do allow the use of other bricks as long as their use does not constitute a majority. For the Computer Generated Graphics videos, you must depict LEGO Bricks and not a competitor’s. If the story involves the use of the other brick makers, it should be done so as part of the plot or the story itself.
Besides, who would want to see an animated short made out of MegaBlocks, I mean really! 8^)

Todd, I think you’re skipping over this issue too lightly. What about a great film that appeared in one of our competitions, “Blood of the Wolf”? The castle was built out of Megabloks, and it looked awesome. Much of the scenery was non-lego. Would this exclude it from the competition?

I’ve been more busy than I thought, so I haven’t filmed a single frame of my film yet. This means I cannot make it. Sorry.
