Re: BRAWL 2017 STARTS NOW!

I have a shot done right now, where I included the brick mod element, but because there's so much camera movement in it, the mod element is only really in the shot for 4 frames, and out of focus. Would I have to redo the shot/scrap it, or can I note in the submission email where the mod element is in that specific shot? Thanks.

Re: BRAWL 2017 STARTS NOW!

Even if it is out of focus, as long as it is possible to identify that it is in the shot at any point, it should be allowed.

Re: BRAWL 2017 STARTS NOW!

To be honest, the first thing that stuck in my head when seeing the theme was something weird and unusual. I might not be taking part this year, but if I were to, I would definitely consider being more creative than 'a science experiment gone wrong!' Experimental really embraces creativity, so I look forward to seeing the entries!

Is it against the rules if I had a live action shot of me animating in my room with the mod element in it

I'm a Brickfilmer that loves smooth animation and attention to detail.

Nope, it's perfectly fine, as long as that's not the entire movie.

Can the blue and white bricks be minifigure parts?

Because I care for y'all, I made this lovely little playlist of inspirational music. It'll keep you alive for the duration of the contest. Enjoy!

Does the mod element have to be the same (set) of pieces for the whole film?

Re: BRAWL 2017 STARTS NOW!

This is such a great theme! I wish I had the time to enter mini/sad I encourage all who participate to really push themselves and do what no one else has done before like unique camera shots (perhaps filming underneath the minifigure)? Or a unique-ish storyline (villains winning)? There's a couple of ideas for people to use mini/wink

No, as long as you use the right colours, they can be anything. Although, it may help to have an object of some sort that you can use in most/all of your shots. The flowers in Rioforce's THAC XIII winning entry is a good example

Re: BRAWL 2017 STARTS NOW!

Dragon Brick is right. You can have as many different mod elements as you want. As long as you have the colors or the letter somewhere in every shot, you'll be fine.

Aww... I'll be on vacation till the 30th. Well... Maybe next year.

Re: BRAWL 2017 STARTS NOW!

Brilliant! BRAWL is back! Really looking forward to seeing how people interpret the theme. I, lacking any creativity, have gone with a Brickfilm about scientists in blue and white lab. Good luck to all!

Re: BRAWL 2017 STARTS NOW!

Is there a lighter version of the Brick Warriors logo that sits on a black bg?

Re: BRAWL 2017 STARTS NOW!

I made the entire set blue and white. Does that work?

Re: BRAWL 2017 STARTS NOW!

It should. I'm assuming if the entire set is blue and white then blue and white bricks are directly touching at some point.

my white/blue lab is ready mini/wink
