Visuals created by Leonardo812

Hey guys, I'm hosting another (rather early) AniExer-size contest to celebrate the holiday!

Rules & Requirements:

1) The film must be constructed using LEGO® or similar 'brick' construction toys.
2) The film must consist primarily of stop-motion animation. Any other animation
techniques may be used but to only supplement the stop-motion and cannot be the main focus.
3) The minimum time length is 10 seconds. There is no maximum length.
4) Entries must be created only for this contest; use of preexisting footage is not allowed.
5) Post your entry as a response to this video, one per entrant.
6) Entries must be suitable for general, family audiences. No swearing, gore, sexual references,
excessive violence, or other offensive content is allowed. Any inappropriate entries may be disqualified
at the discretion of contest judges.

Theme: Fright

Create a frightening scene, using any techniques available. Lighting, story, characters and sets, and other elements
such as sound and music should all work together to create a frightening, scary atmosphere.


Entries will be judged on the quality of animation, overall visual presentation, and creativity.

Judges:

VN, Sméagol, Mindgame, GPPProductions, and Forrestfire101

Deadline:

The call for entries ends Halloween day, October 31st.

Prizes:

First Place Winner will granted a $100 USD coupon to be used at eBricksOnline.com

Woah cool.
I'm sure to enter.

Re: AniExer-size Animation Contest II - Halloween Edition [CLOSED]

Excellent!
You mentioned that there is no maximum length, but the description says to "Create a frightening scene."
Are entries limited to one scene?

Nope, you can create as many scenes as you wish.

Awesome! All start right away! mini/bigsmile  I was just wondering but... how do we prove we made it for the contest?

I do not care about your opinion, unless it has to do with it needing more ponies.

I might entry. Probably yes.

Re: AniExer-size Animation Contest II - Halloween Edition [CLOSED]

Ugh? Another one already? The last one's only over about a month.  And I hope skull brick is OK with this, since it's kinda like you took over the Halowe'en contest.  But anyway I won't have time to enter :\

VN told me that he asked skull brick first and he said the BHC won't be on this year.

^ Yeah, if he planned to host BHC 3...then I wouldn't have done this.

Re: AniExer-size Animation Contest II - Halloween Edition [CLOSED]

I really liked the addition of the third place prize, so kudos for that.

And I HATE the theme, because now I HAVE to enter! mini/tongue

Great to see this new contest. I hoping I can animate something for it! mini/lol

Re: AniExer-size Animation Contest II - Halloween Edition [CLOSED]

K, anyone who needs effects, or music. I can help you out. I'm not entering, because I'm working on a very tiny (sarcasm anyone?) project.

Re: AniExer-size Animation Contest II - Halloween Edition [CLOSED]

I'm likely to enter,because I have not made a Brickfilm in weeks,plus the prizes are great.

Re: AniExer-size Animation Contest II - Halloween Edition [CLOSED]

I'm gonna enter. mini/smile

Would the word 'crap' be considered excessive violence?
