    UTOPIES – Urban Technocratic Orgnisations Places In Emerged Societies

    I don’t think either of those acronyms really work, but I think simply going with “Utopia” as a theme could be interesting.

    -Smeagol, who would like to point out that the historical fiction contest and the classical music contest were not based around cute acronyms, so there is precedent.

    I also like Utopia a lot, and maybe over time someone will find good word to fill the letters :)

    The idea of the theme is what is important – a lot of what I see here is trying to force themes into acronyms that spell something. Keep in mind that we also want to interest people who don’t do (or even really understand) brickfilming so the theme should be broad. For example, I like the idea behind ‘Night of Adventure’ but I find it a bit ‘filmy’. Would people who aren’t into filmmaking appreciate it as much?

    Here are my suggestions:

    Opposites.

    Trash.

    Connections.

    Revolution.

    Light and shadow.

    Brain over brawn.

    I was hoping that BrickWorld had picked a general theme for the show that we could play off of but it’s just wishful thinking at this point. However, since this IS somewhat of a landmark year for the minifig itself, perhaps we can use that. I think it would grab the attention of more of the non-brickfilming AFOLs.

    A life in Lego – a day in the life, a retrospective, a biography (or whatever) of a minifig.

    And while were here:

    Minifigs: talking to the man on the plastic street – this would be more like a Community Project in a way. A documentary-like compilation of various clips of minifigs being interviewed about their lives – what it’s like where they live, how they’ve been treated, their jobs, hopes for the future. I think it could drift between real fantasy (minifigs as real people) to reality (minifigs as toy figures).

    Keep the ideas flowing!

    Wait, shouldn’t you give the prizes away for the last contest before starting another one?

    I’m seeing a lot of snappy acronyms, but the themes that make them up don’t exactly fit together. If you take a look at the past contests, like Heroes and Villains, or Fame, Infamy and Glory, you’ll see that the themes that make them up all seem to click together. But War and Love (this is an example) does not.

    Also, a lot of people are going to want to enter this contest, and adding onto what I said earlier about slasher films, some people have standards that they want to keep , and if this contest is aiming for more violent films, they aren’t going to be able to enter. This contest should be open to anyone who wants to enter, and remember, these films are going to be shown at BrickWorld. I don’t think parents are going to want to take their kids to a violent Brickfilm.
