Re: Summer Contest: Movie Magic

Sounds very interesting! I have already some ideas for new animations, but maybe I'll enter mini/smile

Re: Summer Contest: Movie Magic

This is a great theme - it will really encourage me to experiment mini/smile

Re: Summer Contest: Movie Magic

After seeing mentions of George and Fritz in there, I'm excited to see what sorts of in-camera tricks people come up with!

Re: Summer Contest: Movie Magic

As I know some of our members have started production on their films, now seems like as good a time as any to open a production topic for discussing production on any and all Movie Magic entries.

Re: Summer Contest: Movie Magic

I have a quick question. Are you allowed to show a five second clip of your movie to a voice acter?
Thanks

Yep, that's fine.

Re: Summer Contest: Movie Magic

I would so love to participate this year's summer contest. Sadly, I'm preoccupied with other stuff at the moment.

my dad doesn't want me to brickfilm on because it's his computer, but he's not home right now at the moment.

Re: Summer Contest: Movie Magic

I won’t be able to finish my BRAWL entry in time... but with a bit of tweaking to the script, I can enter into this contest instead! Ah, thank the heavens for this website.

Re: Summer Contest: Movie Magic

I am done animating!
(Actually, I was done last week)

Re: Summer Contest: Movie Magic

Is CG animation allowed? I mean, all the in-camera effects will be computer made, so i guess not. mini/mrgreen

You sure can!

Re: Summer Contest: Movie Magic

Great!

Re: Summer Contest: Movie Magic

Just might join, haven't brick filmed properly in years so this will be fun.

Re: Summer Contest: Movie Magic

So trademarked characters aren’t allowed, but what if a character’s suit with a logo is in the background?

Re: Summer Contest: Movie Magic

Something like a suit in the background is technically acceptable, but I'd really rather folks avoid anything trademarked as much as possible so we don't have to worry about the distinction between background/foreground, what is being used as a story element, etc... A Batman suit on a coat rack is acceptable, LEGO Batman showing up and taking a role in the film is not. I'd prefer people air on the side of caution because the distinction is not straightforward for everyone and I don't want anyone to unnecessarily put their film in danger of disqualification.

References to licensed properties in dialogue are usually fine (ie. two characters discussing who the strongest superhero is), it's the displaying of logos and the characters themselves where stuff starts to get hairy. We don't want to make anything that our sponsors wouldn't be comfortable posting on their sites should they be inclined.

Re: Summer Contest: Movie Magic

Got it. I’ll leave it out to be on the safe side.
