Here it is, the next Brickfilms mini-contest. The Ten Lines Contest.

This is a very wide-open contest that sort of focuses on script writing. It’s meant as a nice activity while many of us take our winter/Christmas breaks.

To the winner will go a $40 credit for the brickfilms merch page.

To the runner up will go a $20 credit for the brickfilms merch page.

Films

Below you will find a list of lines. You are required to choose no less than 10 of them for inclusion in your script. The lines must be either spoken or written whole, uninterrupted and in their entirety during your film. This means subtitles are OK. In any case, they must be understandable in English.

You are free to write the rest of your script however you like. You are free to make your film any way you like, as well. Well, there are a few limitations:

- Absolutely no illegal material. This means you can’t use music, sound, or writing which you don’t have distribution permission for.

- Your entry must be a stop motion animated film. You are allowed to use other kinds of film, but a substantial portion of your film must be animated using stop motion.

- You need to submit at least one version of your film that is in Quicktime or Realmedia format, and that has a file size no larger than 3 MB per minute of film.

Judging

Judging will be of a somewhat different structure than previous contests. There will be no nominations. Each director submitting a film and each patron 24fps or higher will be allowed to submit a single ballot. The ballot will contain the names of that person’s 3 favorite films, in no particular order.

If you are a contestant, including your own film on your ballot is allowed and encouraged. This will provide an incentive for filmmakers to submit ballots.

Ballots will not be kept secret. Who you voted for will be made public. The point of doing this is to discourage people from intentionally voting for films they don’t think have a chance of winning in order to improve their own chances. That’s not to say you should vote for films you think will be popular. You should absolutely vote for your favorite films, whichever ones they are. However, you need to be able to offer an explanation for why you voted the way you did.

Submissions

Due date for submissions is Thursday, January 12th 2006 at 10:00 PM Pacific Standard Time (Los Angeles Time).

To submit your film, send an e-mail to joshua@brickfilms.com which contains this information:

- The official name of your film
- The name(s) of the responsible director(s)
- Your forum name
- A link that can be used to download your film OR a request for access to the contest ftp directory where you can upload it

The Lines

I’m telling my mummy what you did.

I hope you kept the receipt.

Well, let’s face it. We’re lost.

Now this is something you don’t normally see on a Sunday.

You’re very clever, young man.

It wasn’t supposed to explode that much.

It’s at least a hundred years old.

Of course, it’s a whole different thing after dark.

And now for a refreshing beverage.

I’m not gonna tell you if you don’t know.

I pushed it real hard and it got stuck.

I hope that you don’t underestimate me.

Hello. I see you are wearing a new hat.

I’m gonna snap, crackle and pop my way out of here, and you’re not going to stop me.

Nice to meet you. Good luck with your head.

I feel compelled to read short fiction.

That’s gonna need a coat of paint.

I don’t blog. I animate.

Definitely not more than 2.

I’ll edit it in Photoshop.

I can stop any time I want!

Did you see that? I flew!

Having fun isn’t hard when you have a library card.

We had spaghetti at our house three times this week.

You will pay for your dishonorable actions!

It probably prevented something worse happening.

That’s how I became the proud owner of this beauty.

Well, what would you have done with it?

Of course, love is the greatest power in the universe.

We must act like a normal family.

Wowie zowie! Three of my lines were chosen! And just in time too, I just got a new camera that can hook up to my computer again, and I’m ready to rip at it again! :D

The effort it takes to create a DVD probably won’t warrant one just for this contest. I can probably include some or all of the entries on the next BrickFest DVD, though.

Legotronn back in effect!

Sweet.
Count me in! I better get my friends rounded up to work on this. I imagine having fun with this over winter break because I have finals coming up soon which translates to NO TIME (in hindsight, I wish I hadn’t taken the really hard schedule I have this semester…).

-17, who just finished getting his lego collection back in order after the flood in his basement. Boo ya.

Does anyone know of a tutorial for Real Anime?

Well, if I don’t get the real version of iStopmotion soon, my entry will have to be done in the next five days and will have “Captured in a demo version of Boinx iStopmotion” at the top. Hopefully I get it for christmas.

Question: Would it be okay if I sent an email with the film attatched? I have tried at least five different ftp clients, and I can’t get any of them to work. My computer hates me. :computer:

Hmm…

First prize winner could get one of everything in the merch page, not counting shipping cost.

Runner ups could get 2 DVDs or one chroma cloth and one T-shirt.

Excellent timing on the contest.

:o fftopic: I’d be more interested in buying the cloth if you had sample pics of the same pic chroma-keyed. I bet you’d get more orders.

You are free to write the rest of your script however you like.

Just to clarify, this means additional dialogue is acceptable?

I’m thinking about participating, but i have some questions:

1) Would sounds downloaded from Findsounds.com be allowed?
2) Would any sounds that are not copyrighted be allowed?
3) How do you make a movie into Quicktime or Realmedia? I have Real Anime, can I make Realmedia through that?
4)If so, is there a tutorial for Real Anime?

If someone could answer those, it would be greatly appreciated.

For Alpha.

Does the rule about the lines being “uninterrupted and in their entirety” allow for long intervals of silence within a line?
