I haven’t read the rules yet but that part about owning your film and all rights to it sounds unusual. They usually insist on broadcast rights, etc so they can show it, but you maintain ownership. I can understand them keeping the one they pay $25K for though.July 17, 2008 at 5:49 pm #396399
sweet i gotta enter not that i will win anything thoughJuly 17, 2008 at 6:12 pm #396402
I heard about this yesterday and was going to post it but yeah, I thought there was nobody left here so I didn’t post it here
No worries: The cool kids are still hereJuly 17, 2008 at 6:20 pm #396403
I wonder if you get what money you don’t use making the new film. I don’t think I could ever spend $25000 on a brickfilm….July 17, 2008 at 6:26 pm #396406
If I had to guess, I would say that they effectively commission a film from you for $25K. Whether you have an element of freedom in how the money is spent, such as paying the director $20K for services rendered, I don’t know.July 17, 2008 at 7:03 pm #396409

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.

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.July 18, 2008 at 12:24 am #396418
Well since I’ve always wanted a $25,000 budget to film a lego movie I WILL enter this contest and I will do the ultimate BEST that I can!July 18, 2008 at 12:33 am #396420
It would be neat Cannedgravy, but it looks like they may have it so you only do storyboards and scripts Hopefully not though.
