Topic: BRAWL 2020 Results!

It’s finally time to see who won BRAWL 2020! This year was incredible, not only because we broke BRAWL’s record with 66 entries! And we have a list of the TOP 15 entries instead of just 10 like in years past. As I said in the other BRAWL thread:

Chris W. wrote:

This is for two reasons: 1.) because of the huge amount of entries and 2.) because in looking over the entries, we the judges found that we could confidently come to a consensus for a top 15, instead of just 10. And I want to be VERY clear about this: DO NOT expect future BRAWLs or THACs to do this, or be disappointed when future contests only do top 10. Even if future contests get more than this BRAWL's 66 entries, don't expect it. The reason we do only the top 10 is because generally, each of the top 10 have distinguishable merits that the judges can easily rank with an agreeable consensus. To quote Sméagol in 2015 (which I strongly disagreed with at the time, but came to learn was true through judging): “The problem is that after about 10th place, the quality of entries starts to blur into a range in which it is hard to distinguish one from another.”

You can catch up with all the entries here.

The judges this year were:
Chris W.
DudeBrick
Pongowl
Squash
Penta

The judging process worked as follows, each judge watched every film. After watching, each judge ranked their personal top 20 films. Each of the judge's lists were then run through a system that utilizes instant run-off voting to create a top fifteen reflective of all the judges. The judges then adjusted the top fifteen list as a group until they were satisfied with the outcome.
Judges considered the following when watching the films: originality, production value (animation, set design, cinematography, sound, etc.), story, and creative interpretation of the theme. While the parts of the film were considered, the most important quality the judges looked for is how the film works as a whole.

Prizes:
The top three films will enter a prize pool of three prizes:

LEGO Avengers - Thanos Mech, LEGO Creator Sunset Track Racer, and a LEGO Creator Treehouse Treasures.

Re: BRAWL 2020 Results!

I did not end up entering this BRAWL and truly that is a shame. Perhaps that says something about me as a brickfilmer, perhaps it says something about me as a man.

NOW That being said, this was a really phenomenal BRAWL with a record amount of entries, top notch entries at that. It was easy to tell that each and every contestant really poured a lot of effort into their films.

But you know who also put a lot of effort? Chris Wynn (as well as judges). Rounds of applause everyone. Chris really knocked it out of the frame this time round. From the announcement video on the beach, to the answering of dozens, NAY thousands, NAY millions of questions about mod elements, all the way to the sweet end with the live-stream and live Discord announcement. I think we call all agree that Chris is a real Wynn-er.
