Be antsy all day and night, just be patiently antsy. As I see it, there will be about four months to complete your entry (April – July) so there is plenty of time.

I wonder how many directors we will see on this contest spending the last 24 hours before the deadline furiously animating because they didn’t have enough time in the previous month(s) of the contest?

Well, now that you know the theme’s going to be FIG, you can start your film early. That’s what I’m doing.

Yeah, but what if you already had it done and the rules didn’t comply with what you had? Anyway, we have a few monthes.

I love monthes. Like a regular month, but special.

I think he means working on the script, collecting sounds, buying bricks and so forth. I was going to do that, but I decided to wait and see what the rules are going to be.

There was some people who had problems with the Ten Lines Contest since it was originally going to be only ten lines, but it was changed to include ten lines. Hopefully we won’t have anybody with similar problems for this contest.

That’s what I am doing too. I’ve got a few of the characters designed, and my script’s at 9 pages. And it’s not even halfway done. :twitch:

I’ve got some scenes done, but I want to get a new camera and redo them. I’m also working on the script. 21 pages, not even half way. w00t!

I’m trying to start tonite, but I can’t think of anything that doesn’t sound like a documentary.

In the event you need to dramatically cut your film, but still enter, I would very much like to see a redux version of your film ;)

-MindGame, who’s only 2-3 pages into his script

Start writing your “documentary”. The story you tell and how you tell your story are two different aspects of film-making. Don’t let how you intend to present your story get in the way of your creativity in creating the story itself. Work out the details of story: the plot, the setting, the characters, etc. It is usually the subtle nuances that make a story interesting. Occasionally, halfway-decent films result from a fully-developed “universe” that was created and populated before the film itself written (LOTR, Terminator, Matrix).

Ugh. This script has a lot of dialogue. I guess you can expect a, “I need voices!!!one111″ thread from me soon.

I don’t get it. Should the main character be doing what he is famous for. Cause mine is a famous person becoming an evil dictator. Hopefully that will be acceptable.

EDIT: After about 7 more pages, I’ve decided to keep the script but write a new one for brickfest. The one that I’m writing is awesome, it just doesn’t tie in with FIG.
