I thought Retribution had some of the better cinematography and lighting I have seen in more recent brickfilms.

Same.
Also, really good job with your film.

Re: Welcome to the 2015 Bricks in Motion Awards!

I don't understand this...what is the qualifications for being nominated? What do you look for? I mean for instance...Lego Captain America 3: Nazi Zombies is nominated for best editing? Why not for best animation? I mean it's the smoothest animation of all the nominees? I don't understand...

Re: Welcome to the 2015 Bricks in Motion Awards!

I agree with you that, in any other circumstances, Captain America 3 would have been a strong contender for a nomination.

However, it had to be disqualified from competing in Best Animation because I was directly involved in animating it. As a co-organizer and judge of the Bricks in Motion Awards, the rules we currently have disallow judges' films to be eligible for awards contention (to prevent us from being tempted to vote for ourselves unfairly).

That said, since it was the only aspect of production that I had direct involvement with, it was free to compete in the other categories, which is why it does have nominations for Editing, Sound, and Visual Effects.

Firstly, welcome to Bricks in Motion, TopBrick!  If you haven't already, I'd recommend checking out the Beginner's Guide to BiM and the Introduce Yourself topics, if you need any information or want to introduce yourself.  Also, the Cafe Corner is a pretty great place to go if you want to get to know people and have some general conversation.

As for the awards: theoretically, the BiMAs are supposed to happen every year; it's a bit like the Brickfilming equivalent of the Oscars.  In practice, though, there was a hiatus for several years (since 2011, if I'm not mistaken), but it made a return last year.  You can view last year's nominees and winners here, if you want. 

As for next year, I do think it's pretty likely the Awards will happen next year but it's hard to say.  The judges and people more directly involved in the Awards would probably be able to give a better answer.

I think there was an awards ceremony for the 2012 films, because I joined in 2012 and remember one awards show.
