But no one will know the theme until the start of the contest anyways.

Oh yes, I suppose you’re right. I forgot about the theme coming at go time as well.

Still, the mod supplies insurance against faking it. It would be possible to make a film ahead of time that was pretty generic and claim that it applies to a variety of themes. The brickfilms community is, unfortunately, pretty bad at judging whether films adhere to themes.

1. That was really informal of a count in the first thread
2. nobody knew the day it was gonna be on!!!! well nobody knew the true date of it…

Dude, this is no challange for me, I made all of my movies in less than six hours (containing everything) :P

Luckily, I will get my friend’s animating kit for two weeks, and August 27 is in those weeks, so I’ll be able to enter, I guess. :D

EDIT: I don’t really get that mod element thing, how will be that exactly?

I’m 90% sure I can enter. I really look forward to this because it will be my first participation in a Brickfilms contest. I just hope I can utilize at least 12 hours of time because I doubt that my family will let me.

Sweet. I have atleast twenty hours of time to work which I plan to use. Which means I will actually be trying to do something! I am getting one of my friends who can really help me. Only problem is I audition for the knoxville symphony youth orchestra that day. Shouldn’t take more than three hours but to be safe I subtracted four hours from my overall work time (reason I said I have twenty hours to work on an entry). And if I have to, I will stay up working right till the deadline. Bring it on.

Very small change to the rules. Rule six now reads:

“6. Joint entries ARE allowed, as are multiple entries.”

Instead of:

“6. Joint entries ARE allowed.”

I also added some more information to the documentary page regarding methods of submitting your footage to me. Anyone planning on documenting their film should check that out.

There is an entire page dedicated to the mod element, you should check it out. It will most likely answer any questions you have.

I did, but it’s still unclear to me. Everyone will have his own mod element, or you will show us one and everybody’ll have to use that (the last one is more rational, since it’s another way to avoid cheating. If a guy shots a part of the film before the contest with his own mod element, and then use the same one in those which he shots under the time of the contest, then noone would tell that it was cheating.)?

Everyone will have to use the same, and it is announced at the same time as the theme.

It works like this. On the day the theme is being announced, the mod will be announced. David West most likely will make a post with “The theme is ‘GOOD AND EVIL’ and the mod element is ‘THE LETTER y’. Start your engines.”, or something.

And then everybody has to make a movie about good&evil, and include the letter Y in every animated frame of your sequence.
