Topic: BiM Celebration Contest Results!

http://i.imgur.com/UkUcwCy.png

After substantial deliberation, Nathan Wells, Zach Macias, Doug Vandegrift, and I came to a consensus for judging the entries to the BiM Celebration contest. The quality of entries was high, and it wasn't easy for us to decide how to rank the entries, but we worked to come as close as we could to a consensus.

Without further ado, here are the winners:

1st Place

2nd Place

3rd Place


We also ranked the rest of the top 10 entries. Again, it was difficult to pick a top ten and arrive at a consensus.

4. brickelodeon - Maturity

5. sillypenta - The Thief

6. Twickabrick - Good Coffee

7. AquaMorph - Flowers for Elizabeth

8. brickcrazy - When No One's Looking

9. END films - Celebrations

10. JonnDthunDer - BiM Celebration Film


Thank you to everybody who entered the contest. Congratulations to the winners, and to all those who completed entries. All the entries will be available on DVD & Blu-ray as part of the BiM Collection, available only through pre-order via the BiM Documentary Kickstarter!

For a look at some of the entries, check out this promo video for the contest and Kickstarter, edited by Doug Vandegrift.

Because the judges had a wide range of opinions about the films, we decided not to attempt a consensus writeup about the entries. Judges are free to voice their individual opinions on entries either in this thread or in the films' respective releases forum threads.

Re: BiM Celebration Contest Results!

I almost combusted spontaneously as a result of too much excitement and joy.

This is so exciting, I am not really sure what to say. Thanks for hosting this and giving everyone an opportunity to be featured on the DVD, and great job to all the other entrants!

no more brickfilming *sad face*.

Why weren't you on the call, loser? We were pretty damn happy for you.

Anyway, I'm mostly happy with the results, 1st place was definitely worthy of where it placed in my opinion.

Re: BiM Celebration Contest Results!

Actually, You're probably better off having missed the chat, as Smeagol made sure it was long, dragged out, and really suspenseful (there were at least two "Commercial Breaks!"). Still, it was kinda fun! mini/smile

Re: BiM Celebration Contest Results!

Some of the results chats in past years have lasted about 5 minutes. I wanted to make it a little more of an event, haha.

Re: BiM Celebration Contest Results!

Well it was certainly...something. Also, from now on I will be referring to September 20th as Smeagol is a troll day. A loveable troll. mini/tongue Anyway, congratulations to the winners, some really great little films came out of this contest, and it was a lot of fun to be a part of it. mini/smile

Re: BiM Celebration Contest Results!

Thank you very much to everyone running the contest and my fellow entrants - remember we're all on the DVD together! Nice work, everybody.

Re: BiM Celebration Contest Results!

Congratulations to the top 10 and great job to everyone who entered. All the entries were super, and it was very enjoyable to watch them all.

Re: BiM Celebration Contest Results!

I'm not in the top 10... so can I pretend that I'm 11th mini/tongue jk

Congrats to all of the winners. But really, everyone's a winner here - everyone will be featured on the BiM collection dvd, and, that's a great reward in itself. mini/smile I can't wait to view all of the entries again; just next time, it'll be on my tv, not on my computer... That's just so cool.
