Huh, seems interesting. I might enter, or not. I don’t know if my film will even be accepted, judging from the fact I will use copyrighted music.
And it is in Lego. But I might! I just Might!
EDIT: Can you please post the entry form etc. Revmen?December 5, 2003 at 12:13 am #24645

Yes, the lego company doesn’t even let you show trademarks! (Unless you want to face a whopping fine! Crikey)[/b]December 7, 2003 at 1:10 am #24800
OK, I’ve finally uploaded the forms.
If you want to submit an entry, it should be easy enough for you to avoid using copyrighted music. There are many sources of inexpensive, royalty-free music, and we have a handful of willing composers as well.
I’m also sure that one of our members in PAL territory would be willing to help one of us poor NTSC’ers out with converting and submitting an entry tape.December 7, 2003 at 1:29 am #24804
I can do a few PAL tapes. However, being on dialup, I’m going to struggle to download hi-res files. If anyone wants to enter, PM me and we’ll see what we can work out.
