•    Your work must be entirely made & submitted within the time limit and consist of new, original animation.
•    The mod elements must appear in your film. (specifics below)
•    Your entry must consist of a minimum of 25 seconds of Lego or similar building-block toy animation.
•    No mature/explicit content is allowed.
•    Make your entries public after the deadline has passed!

Brickfilms featuring copyrighted/trademarked properties will be accepted on a case-by-case basis. But shy away from using copyrighted music.

NOTE: The 15 second leeway rule is NOT applicable in this contest. And never has been for SHAC.

The modification elements, or mod elements, prove entries were made within the time limit.

This year, they are:

COLOR MOD: Red & Red
This is a combination of a red brick/piece connected, touching, or overlapping another red brick/piece. Acceptable colors & shades are: Red, Dark Red, Rust, Coral, Salmon, and Trans-Red.

Both red bricks/pieces can be the same shade, or differing shades. Minifig parts (legs + middle, body + arms… etc) WILL count as the mod element!

If you are unsure if a color is acceptable, consult the bricklink color guide or share a picture with Dyland through email, BiM private message, or on twitter.

LETTER MOD: M
This is the letter M. It can be either uppercase or lowercase, and in any font you choose. However, it cannot be inserted digitally! It must be present in your original footage to count.

SOUND MOD: shac3_clink.mp3
•    A foley glass clink recorded by co-host The Login Productions. Feel free to use in future projects as well!

The sound must appear at least once in your film (excluding the credits), however it may be reversed or digitally altered – so long as it is still clearly the sound.

TO REITERATE
Your film must contain either the Color Mod, Letter Mod, or both in every scene. AND you must also include the Sound Mod at least one time. Remember, the Sound Mod does not supersede the other two mods!

Here is a definition of what constitutes a scene (from Wikipedia):

In filmmaking and video production, a scene is generally thought of as the action in a single location and continuous time.

A scene is a part of a film, as well as an act, a sequence (longer or shorter than a scene), and a setting (usually shorter than a scene). The terms refers to a set sequence and continuity of observed action - an association of time, place or characters.

Shelby Pritchard,

And a mystery judge!

Re: SHAC 3 Starts NOW!

Brickman has asked if pre-filmed VFX elements also require the mod element. (Think brick built explosions, water elements, TV/theater monitors, computer screens, etc.)

They would not so long as they don’t fill the entire screen. mini/smile

Re: SHAC 3 Starts NOW!

Would blue taccing two pieces together in a way they wouldn't technically connect still count for the colour mod?

Re: SHAC 3 Starts NOW!

Just so long as they’re touching, is my understanding. It doesn’t matter how.

Thanks, thought it would be based on the rules, just making sure.

If it's animated, yes. Credits & logos don't require the mod elements, however.

To help accommodate international brickfilmers, the contest begins Friday at noon and ends Monday at noon (or 1 if it's over Daylight Saving weekend). So everyone has 2 full days, and two half days.

It's perfectly fine to start on Saturday, or even Sunday and THAC it. mini/tongue
