can't wait

Re: THAC XVI - Coming January 2019!

I am excited for THAC XV1!! What are the rules for beginning and end credits? Should I credit the Bricks in Motion website? And if I can,  may I use music by Kevin Macleod at Incompetech.com? If so how should I credit that? Thank you!!

Glad you're thinking about entering THAC. There are no requirements for beginning or end credits. In fact, you do not even need to include credits in your film. If you wish to include credits (most people do), people in the past have include "Created for THAC on BricksinMotion.com" or something similar in the credits of their film.

Yes, you can use Kevin Macleod's music. You can credit his music by listing the song name and then his name, or by just saying music by Kevin Macleod. You can put this in the credits of your film or in the video description if you decide not to include credits.

Re: THAC XVI - Coming January 2019!

I am in trouble. mini/sad My laptop was several issues so I sent in into HP to get fixed.  That was before Thanksgiving.  It was supposed to come back on December 4th.  It was then delayed to the11th.  Then the 17th, then 21st, and now the 4th of January. mini/eek  I am afraid I won't be able to do THAC!

Re: THAC XVI - Coming January 2019!

I'm sorry to hear that, PlasticPointProductions. Hopefully it will arrive in time!

Yay!  I'm excited to see your entry.

Re: THAC XVI - Coming January 2019!

Oh boy my pc is giving me problems again, I hope it holds to January 5th...

Re: THAC XVI - Coming January 2019!

There is also some weird wording on the subject of public and unlisted videos.

"You may not make your entry public until after the deadline. The entry you make public must be the entry you submit to the judges"

That contradicts itself, doesn't it?

No. The video you send to the judges and the one that will be considered for judging should remain unlisted for the duration of the contest. After the contest has ended, you can make the video public but it should be the exact same video.

Re: THAC XVI - Coming January 2019!

In previous years, people would submit one entry, then work the next few days, actually finish/expand it and release the edited version. Then, that new version can either influence the judges thoughts on the actually submitted version, or create confusion with the final rankings if the submitted version wasn't so great, but the final was. When that happened, people were shocked to see the film ranked so low when what  they saw (the edited version) was so much better.

In preparation for THAC, I thought I'd make a short video series on my Top 5 Tips for T.H.A.C.
Along with Nathan Wells' 11 Tips for T.H.A.C. 11, they make great companions for setting up for the contest! mini/bigsmile
