Just to clarify, this means additional dialogue is acceptable?

Yes

Would sounds downloaded from Findsounds.com be allowed?

It depends on where they’re from. Findsounds just searches other sites for sounds, so you’ll have to check the source site.

Would any sounds that are not copyrighted be allowed?

You need to have permission to distribute it, whatever it is.

How do you make a movie into Quicktime or Realmedia? I have Real Anime, can I make Realmedia through that?

This and your other question can be answered by looking elsewhere on brickfilms.

I’ll probably enter this one. Just a few clarifying questions.

Hehe, my line. By using the word “Photoshop,” would that be a copyright infraction, or would it only be one if the term “Adobe” were used?

-MindGame, liking this idea :D

Best guess is your username in the brickfilm forum. For instance, you would include the name MindGame in your submission.

No WMVs allowed? Once again, a contest discriminates WMM users :evil

I use WMM. Export the movie as an AVI (To do that, click on the “Other Settings” option when getting read to expory, select DV-AVI (NTSC) and the movie will become a 720×480 AVI video), import the movie into Real Anime, and encode it into a Real Media file.

Yay, Christmas break is perfect for brickfilming.
Excellent concept, excellent lines. I predict the most used line to be “It wasn’t supposed to explode that much.” :)
The voting system seems to be really easy, too.

Why? WMM can create the same AVI needed to make Real Media or Quicktime formats as other editors. Real can be created for free and is multi-platform where WMV files are limited to Win users.

Edit: Ahh.. Mindgame beat me to it.. and explained it better to boot ;)

WMV files can be seen on other comp brands, as long as you have Windows Media Player (I know this applies to Macintoshes. Not sure about other platforms). I just filmed a test to see if I could encode using RealAnime, and I couldn’t find my encoded file. It was able to encode it, I just don’t know where it’s stored.

In the Input/Output Section, there is a little box that say “Destination.” Find that place on your computer, and you should find you film. Next time, to make things a little simpler, make your destination in some sort of Folder, or better yet, on your desktop.

I encoded the film and it converted to a MKV file. What program is used to play those?

This has been discussed before; the latest version of real anime no longer has the real codec in it sadly, therefore it coverts it to a matroska video file which you must download a codec for ( http://www.matroska.org/ ). I personally like the file format alot; it allows for subtitle and language tracks while playing within another media player like windows media. Very handy though it hasn’t caught on much yet.

Back to the contest…
Just wondering but are there any restricitions on length (minimum or maximum)?

Nope.

With the time allotted for filmmaking and the general feel of the contest, I’m expecting films to be in the 3-5 minute range. But who knows what we’ll see.

I suspect any computer brand can play WMV, as long as you have Windows Media Player :P

To my knowledge, Windows Media Player is available on no platforms other than Windows and Mac.

Is there anyway the deadline could be moved back by like 7 days because of te way my school holidays work? If so I’m in.

Actually, yes, I probably should push it back a week or so. That should line up better with some people’s holidays.
