Thats cool…but from what I can tell, stop motion animation is not one of the accepted mediums. What a shame.

I thought they all ready had one. Oh well, maybe it’s a yearly contest. Let’s see if I can get me a GL2! :mischief

K, I sent them an e-mail…

I figure they probably won’t allow it,
but who knows? Maybe we’ll get lucky! :)

Nah, they specifically say “live-action”. But who knows, maybe they’ll respond to our plight.

Last year’s winner is clearly an animation. Computer-generated, perhaps, but nevertheless.

So we might be allowed.

Stefan has a very good point. (Were any of you able to watch the 2002 winner? I clicked it but loading just went on and on.)

However, I have my doubts that a movie made with Lego in our usual way has much of a chance. I suspect you’d have better luck using your animation skills on a more ‘accessible’ movie. Sad, but true.

They say live-action, edited on a computer,
or
computer-generated animation.

Mix those and you can make brickfilms. :wink

“Modified and/or edited live-action digital movies shot with a digital video camcorder; or computer-graphics animated movies”

I dunno. Quite a stretch, but maybe we can find a loophole that will allow brickfilming.

At least 4096 can submit his films.

Or we could contact them and see if they’ll let us.

Really sorry, guys…

Hadn’t checked my “other” e-mail addy in a while,
I’d been really busy.

Here’s part of an e-mail I received.

Hi Brian,

Thank you for your inquiry about the Canon Digital Creators Contest. I believe your animation falls into the computer generated animation category, therefore, eligible for submission into the contest. Please visit our website http://www.canon.com/cdcc/ for details and rules pertaining to obtaining all necessary rights and permissions (Lego blocks) and an Entry Form for our 2003 Contest. We look forward to your participation in this year’s Contest.

Yeah.

I’m talking to all my friends about it.

Forget winning, I’m shooting for an honourable mention.

Talk about publicity! :D
