Yes. That’s interesting. Could I use the money to buy AE? Or a new computer? Or a camera? It’s all a little vague. I don’t like vagueness.

I’ve emailed Nicktoons, though. I’ll let you know if I find anything out.

Grand Prize: Nick Development Package

Chosen By: Nick Development Team

The Nick Development award will be awarded to one filmmaker chosen by the Nick Development team based on their criteria. That person will win the opportunity to pitch their original concepts directly to the Nick Development group. One concept will be chosen and with the guidance of the Nick Development team, that person will receive 30k towards the development of the following materials: Show Bible (including Design Pack), Pilot Script, and Storyboard.

From the 30K contest prizes. So, we wouldn’t even make the show, just help with the script and storyboard? Where does the $25000 go? Can you really spend that much on script and storyboards?

I still want to enter, but this is very confusing.

OFFTOPIC: I didn’t realize Viacom owned Nicktoons.

Uh oh. I don’t consider that off topic. Viacom are trying to drive Youtube into the ground and I like Youtube. That makes Viacom the bad guys, and I’d prefer to have nothing to do with them.

It would be neat Cannedgravy, but it looks like they may have it so you only do storyboards and scripts :( Hopefully not though.

That’ll be AWSOME!
If only you could submit Pirates, you’d win for sure!
Too bad it has to be a “short”. :(

Lets me see if we can get a rep to come on the board & offer some clarification.

I’m a bit stuck now. Which should be my main focus? Making a movie that could win a BAFTA or making a movie that could win about £12000 for a new film?

The Nick contest ends about a month earlier, too.

This sounds great, but, seriously, how much better could you make a brickfilms with £12500? What exactly do you DO with that money?

The best brickfilms we’ve seen are still made for the supercheap, right? Or am I wrong? Has there been a brickfilm with that much put into it?

Still, what a great couple of competitions.

It’s not about making a “better” brickfilm, it’s about making a broadcast-quality brickfilm. You’d buy a pro stop motion camera and rig for properly controlled camera movements, get some decent lights and filters, pay for rights to professionally recorded soundtrack music, pay for voice actors, pay for software, buy lego, pay for travel to Nick HQ to pitch your ideas, etc, etc. I’d expect to be able to pay for my own time as well, so I’d guess you can take at least a portion of the prize money as “wages”.

Spite Your Face. They probably didn’t get $25K, but I bet they were paid reasonably well for the official Lego promotional films they did.

Ah, yes. Forgive me, I forgot about them. They were some top quality films.

I emailed NickToons with some questions about the contest, and they replied very quickly. Maybe within ten minutes. I then emailed them again expressing doubts as to whether we’d see a replay of the LSW Movie Making contest, in which brickfilmers were pretty much snubbed, with even high quality films not being accepted into the submitted films gallery. It’s been about a day, but they haven’t replied.

I think Nicktoons is behind Nickelodien, so they’d probably be looking for comdies. Pirates is an epic action/love story, so I don’t think it would win.

And Pirates happens to be longer than the 2 minute time limit. Like, 15 times longer.
