    Can this be based on any form of literature, like a poem, or is it strictly supposed to be based on books?

    Great idea for a contest Aled! I’ll have to attempt a film or two!

    Also, I think that next… next year (2009) we ought to make this official so that Aled doesn’t have to put up for another prize. Brickfilms.com can probably pull together enough for something similar. Maybe next year’s prize could be something like AfterEffects or Shake…

    Aled, I have a question regarding this contest: does it have to be a scene from a book, or can it be a trailer-type film? When I saw this thread, I thought of the perfect book to use, but it would be in the form of a trailer. But even if I can’t use that idea, I think this is a really cool idea for a contest.

    It can be a trailer, but it HAS to be from a book.

    I don’t know if I’ll enter or not, but I have a perfect idea for a book/trailer/music combo!

    A trailer would certainly be easier for people to understand than just a stand-alone scene. I’m sort of sick of the whole trailer thing at the moment, but since I wouldn’t need to begin until June…

    btw, I’m assuming copyrighted content is fair game?

    I think the point is more to adapt a segment of a dramatic narrative, not to give people an idea of it. We’ve had too many trailers.
    And adapting a single scene is something that new brickfilmers with fewer resources will be able to do too.

    Exactly. I sort of wish that we were limited to adapting a scene out of a book as was the original intention because this would set entries apart from regular trailers. Also an extract from a book would take a lot less time to make than a proper trailer, in which one can usually only use each set in a few shots.
