Congrats to everyone!  It was a blast!  I can't wait to do it again.  The live IRC day was such a.n event.  I think everyone had a great time.

And even more congratulations to all the winners! mini/smile and the nominees as well.

I feel that all these films show that brickfilms don't have to be all the same style, or stuck in a little box, but can be used to show all kinds of ideas, emotions, and concepts just like other forms of animation.

Here's to anther great year of brickfilms!
