Your film must contain either the Color Mod, Letter Mod, or both in every shot. AND, you must also include the Sound Mod at least one time.

Feel free to use the sound mod more than once, if you wish! mini/eek  ...But refrain from spamming it, thank you.

Good luck, 8-BIT SODA! This seems like a fun contest to enter and the time-frame is exactly for me mini/bigsmile I always run out of time in THAC and I can't seem to keep my focus in longer timed contests.

Jokes on us, the sound mod is actually the ripped audio from a 20 minute long tv episode

The rules are pretty simple:

  • Your entry must consist of at least 30 seconds of Lego or similar building-block toy animation.

Theoretically, the sound mod could be as long as 30 seconds! mini/tongue But I'd never do that. The intention is to have it be something short (similar to the color & letter mods), only lapsing the time an average shot would. But, it's gotta be more distinct than a footstep, though, as to make it easier to check if it is indeed in each and every entry.

Re: SHAC Announcement Thread!

What format will the sound mod be in? WAV? MP3? WMA? AIFF?

Re: SHAC Announcement Thread!

WAV & MP3, Brickman. And any other formats, should anyone not be able to deal with WAV or MP3.

Re: SHAC Announcement Thread!

Yes, this contest is legitimate, Stopmotion Philms. mini/smile

And yes, while videos should be kept unlisted before the deadline, feel free to make them public afterwards. Share your creations with the world!

Re: SHAC Announcement Thread!

If I was to composite multiple layers of animation into a scene, would each layer need to have the colour or letter mod shown? I guess if that wasn't the case, animation could be done beforehand, defying the whole point.

Re: SHAC Announcement Thread!

If the layers are composited on top of eachother (like animating an explosion of animated bricks on green screen, and chroma keying it on top of another shot) you'd only need to have the letter or color mod on the background plate (i.e. the original shot/set).

If there's a really complex shot you're trying to pull off (or something like an extreme close-up), it would be best to shoot me an email with some behind the scenes pictures before submission, just to be safe. That way I could determine if said shot is acceptable on a case by case basis.

Personally, I'd rather be safe than sorry, and would potentially include the color or letter mod within all layers - again, depending on the shot & complexity.

Re: SHAC Announcement Thread!

This will be cool. The sound mod is new though. It will be like the THAC contest only with a sound mod. I am going to try to enter, I hope I will have time though.

Re: SHAC Announcement Thread!

Just remember to pace yourself, Zach Studios. When I made a 4 minute brickfilm for THAC, I had to reuse animation and recut existing footage like crazy just to get it done in time. It's better to make a well thought out 30 second entry than a 10 minute bore fest.

Just give it your all and try to be creative; I'm sure you'll go far.
