Founded in 2001, Bricks in Motion is a friendly filmmaking community devoted to the art of stop-motion animation. Most of our films, sometimes called brickfilms or LEGO movies, are created using LEGO® and other plastic brick building toys. We have an active forum for filmmakers to learn from each other and share their work, as well as an ever-growing directory of films submitted by our members, and periodic animation contests that challenge filmmakers to push their skills further.
Forum member Squash has announced the official 2018 BiM summer contest! The theme is Movie Magic, and the contest runs from June 1st to September 3rd. Our generous sponsors Dragonframe and Brickstuff have returned to offer prizes this year, and we have a lovely batch of goodies to be won including Dragonframe software, a Brickstuff lighting kit, a LEGO Architecture set, and more! For complete details, check out the announcement post on the forums. We hope this theme will really let people stretch their creative wings, and we're looking forward to seeing what you all come up with. Happy filming!
