Topic: BRAWL 2009 Info [CLOSED]

http://i30.tinypic.com/2d7ek28.jpg

I am happy to announce that the BRAWL (Brickfilm Rapidly All Week Long) Competition will be returning this year.

Important Information
Contest Period: This year, the competition will start at 9 AM EST on August 23rd, and run until 9 AM EST on August 30th. Click here to see when the contest starts in your area.

Prizes: I do not plan on giving any prizes away myself. However, if someone wants to donate prizes for this contest, you are welcome to.

Judges: The judging system this year is going to be slightly different from last year. Instead of having 5 categories to judge in (Animation, Story, Cinematography, Sound, and Enjoyment), there is only going to be 3 categories: Enjoyment, Story, and Technical Qualites (which consists of Animation, Cinematography, Sound Design, and other aspects of the film not related to the plot).

In addition to being in charge of the judging, I will also be one of the judges, but I would like to have at least 3 or 4 additional judges to balance it out. Please note that if you are planning to apply to be a judge, that you will not be eligible to enter this contest.


The rules of the contest will be posted when it starts, but if you have any questions about the contest, want to donate prizes, or want to be a judge, post in this thread or feel free to email me at [email protected].

I would enter, but I think if we get prizes there will be more entrys.

Happy THACing mini/sunnies

Re: BRAWL 2009 Info [CLOSED]

Yes.  Fantastic.

If I may make a suggestion, maybe we could start this a bit earlier.  I know a few of us are starting school around that time.

edit-
Haha, just found out I'll be in Idaho the week before... keep in that week! Keep it that week! mini/tongue
But really, I think it'd be better if it was held a week before, so that people didn't have all the issues with the beginning of school.

This. School starts for me during that week.

Try the week before that.

Re: BRAWL 2009 Info [CLOSED]

Yeah, I start school a day after the competition begins, so I don't think I could do that.

Sorry, I wanted to start it earlier (it actually would've started today), but by the time I finished writing up the info for this year's contest, I wouldn't have been able to give people as much time beforehand as I wanted. Plus I'm going on vacation for a week right before the 23rd, so I wouldn't have been able to do it then. I realize that school starts for some people that week (not me), but I figured that the workload wouldn't be that much at the beginning of the year, so you would still have a good enough amount of time to make a film. I purposely structured the start and end days of the contest to give people basically a full weekend to make a film.

The minimum amount of animation is only going to be 30 seconds, so it's doable in a weekend.

Like I said, originally I wanted it to start today and run until next Saturday or Sunday, but then there wouldn't be much advance notice that the competition was going to happen. And I can't start it anytime this week or next, because that will conflict with my vacation plans.
