    As an addendum to that, I’ll distill a bit of my reply from Tony (of Spite Your Face):

    TLG doesn’t care until they get some inclination that you’re making a lot of money using their products – then they get antsy.

    So… what I take from all this is that I will NEVER get a straight answer from TLG because of a safe corporate policy of fence-sitting, but as long as things stay relatively minor league it won’t matter anyway. I’ll just make the movie and see what happens.

    Thanks for the help everyone,

    May I ask how you plan to publish your film, zirkusaffe? Just to a small group, or in a cinema, or what…?

    Just interested 😉

    Apologies for not replying to your email zirkusaffe, been busy and/or in Japan recently! I was going to reply just now, but I appear to have lost the message, doh!
    Anyway, looks like you’ve got some useful advice from others, probably anything I would have told you has been said here… If you need to know any more feel free to email me again…

    Not sure if Lego Studio’s demise will make Lego more or less strict on distribution/screening of Lego movies…?

    Last November I attended the Navy-Notre Dame football game at Ravens Stadium. Shortly before halftime Navy (to my complete suprise 😮 ) showed a short film made with Legos on the big screen promoting Navy and Navy Football. I doubt this will help much but I thought it worth mentioning.

    That’s pretty sweet, Leftfielder. But you know, even if Lego did have a problem with it, I don’t think they would mess with the Navy.

    LOL!

    *Starts imagining Brickfilm where Lego tries to sue the Navy, but decides not to cause it would probably get himself sued.* 🙂

    LOL AGAIN

    Aw!
    Man, I didn’t watch that game!

    (Realizes they probably wouldn’t have shown the clip on tv anyways…)
