Now then, is slapstick considered violence?

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

Is it allowed to have human/minifigure's killed or is it forbidden? Just killed not get shot or anything.

That would be fine, just nothing to graphic.

Nope, just not much blood. I'm a fan of slapstick anyway, so if you bend the rules then I won't disqualify you. And I'll make sure Vik, Scypax, and JK (New Judge) don't either. Heh.

How many judges do you think you'll need? Not that I want to be a judge at all cost, but if you need more, I'm available.

Re: Festival of Souls Brickfilming Contest - 2010 [CLOSED]

Because I'm such a nice person I made a Signature for the contest: http://www.majhost.com/gallery/Chuppa/Gimp/fos_sig.png

I'll be willing to do some artwork for you, LegOpinions. Just PM me.

Re: Festival of Souls Brickfilming Contest - 2010 [CLOSED]

Just to let you all know, I'm going away on Holiday for about a week or so, and will not have any access to the internet, and thus I won't be able to answer your questions. Send anything you like to me via PM and I will answer as soon I get back, any minor things you can post here. Scypax will be in-charge of the contest while I am away, and if he can't then JustKidden or Vik.

Re: Festival of Souls Brickfilming Contest - 2010 [CLOSED]

For the record I've confirmed that I can watch the contest while LegOpinions is away.

Also, Justkidden and Vik are more than welcome to help out. I shall begin emptying my very full inbox tonight, just in case I get a sudden rain of messages. Thank you.

The nighttime effect (darkness of the house) seems tacked on, but the background is nice.

What NXTManiac said, plus, I really like the feeling it gives off. Nice work!

That is officially impossible, as it is a known fact that a Brickfilmer can and will be offended by anyone and/or anything.

Nah. If when you write the script/plan out scenes/make it up as you go along (in my case) you check every decision to make sure it doesn't include anything you wouldn't show to your parents. If you just dont include material that has the potential to be offensive (swearing, sex, hardcore violence, racism etc) then chances are you wont offend.

We are still perfecting our techniques, and it is quite hard to do it perfectly, but we are still trying hard to acheive the perfect effect.

Thanks! mini/bigsmile  We spent hours perfecting that Haunted House, and the poster itself took us a while to make as well.
