    Motfilms did.

    Oops! I read that post too!
    All I could find were these links in the old forum (‘ware the pop-ups!)

    As I remember it, it was disappointing because it wasn’t announced who all entered, who was nominated for what, or how the winners were chosen.
    The best part about it was the sponsorship by Best-Lock.
    I’m still proud of my prize though… :wink

    This ain’t a bad idea. But judges must have to have a fast internet connection to download every single movie.

    If the winner’s speech is longer than a minute, can you make a piano or something land on the minifig?

    I got a couple of friends interested in Stop-Mo on French animation forums, they might be interested. They’re professionnal and often part of jury in animation contests.

    So the question is : who will contact all of our stopmo friends in order to do a jury.

    We could also have a internet choice made where a poll is ran on the Internet featuring the audience’s choice.
    I think this idea is interesting and could bring us more publicity (maybe I’m dumb) and in a few words, it’s worth a try.
    I could take in charge the recruitement of a jury if you want !

    Makes quite a shock to browse the old forums ! :o
    BTW, any news from Litervis and Platypus ? It seems we’ve lost some elements when switching to the new forums….

    In order to build up a jury, we need everyone’s contribution : if you know people who could be interested in brickfilms, and have good eyes, time and a fast internet connection, please write it down (or PM or email me).

    The following list should be considered as a basis for further reflexions.
    Here are some I was thinking of :
    – Karin Wien : of course, she’s doing much for our community and is in the animation business. She’s got quite an encyclopedic knowledge about lil’bricks
    – Jason Rowoldt : former BF admin – for the youngest of us – but is he still interested in BF ?
    – Seth Rothkin : very good knowledge, BFer and driving his own community
    – Thomas Foote : a long time BFer too
    – Esmeralda, though she’s linked to Josh, I found her reviews to be very wise
    – Jay Silver, of course, the master of us all, pro animator now…
    – Nate “Bluntman” Burr because he’s got a very sharp eye and is a good reviewer.
    and some other BFer who didn’t release anything this year (write your name above if you are interested)…

    I was also thinking of Cé OR Yagan, 2 people you don’t know, but who admin a very good French animation website (www.fousdanim.com) and are professors of animation at a French anime school.

    and : perhaps some people at StopMotionPro and some LUG managers (don’t know them though). Y’know, the guys who allows brickfilms to be broadcast at Brickfest. Maybe some people at SpiteYourFace (Tim Drage)…

    We need to find a good balance between BFer and “lurkers”. It would be good to have some pro in the jury.

    There’s no reflexion about sponsorship now.
    Now we also need to think twice about the nomination and deliberation process for every member of the jury (maybe a hidden forum or mailing-list, I dunno).
    It think the trophies could be only virtual.

    Please write down your thoughts about this…

    How does being linked to me suggest that her reviews would not be very wise?

    :lol:

    BTW, any news from Litervis

    The last time i spoke to him, he was in the army.

    The Plastawards were discontinued becuase it’s minor succes.
    We actually encourraged everyone to post his movie but we only received 7 of them.

    If we would not let people send their movies but just choose them and nominate them i’m sure the whole idea would be a marvelous succes.

    Well i’m not only supprised i’m also very dissapointed at that, we set it up at a high level and we had sponsors from ‘Best Lock’ but very few did really cared about to post it’s own movie.

    This is a sweet idea. I assume the nominations would be all the best movies from March 2003 to Febuary 2004 (or would it be a less broad selection?)

    Probably not that soon, maybe September 2003-August 2004, if this idea does go through. It would take alot of time and effort to get it done, but it would be worth it.
