Hi

Just read this and thought some of you might be interested:

Lego Filmmakers Offering $1000 To People Who Create The Coolest Vehicles

Anyone looking to kill some time who possesses good architecture skills and a healthy appreciation for wacky tasks is in luck. The makers of the new Lego movie have announced a contest asking fans to use the classic blocks to build crazy vehicles. The best designs will receive a thousand bucks and better than average bragging rights in the form of their creations being used in the movie. 

Here’s the only caveat. All of the designs have to look like they started out as another object. So, for example: a car that flies with eighty-six wheels would be out of bounds but a Chase ATM with rockets attached to the back would be product tie-in perfection. You can take a look at directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller explaining everything below… 

For the sake of fairness, there is one division for children and one for teenagers/ adults. The contest is scheduled to end at the beginning of December, and organizers are planning to choose as many winners as they’d like to actually use in the movie. Assumedly, that means they will pick at least one. Unfortunately for Ted Mosby and Barney Stinson, teams of fictional characters cannot apply, no matter how much architectural awesomeness they might have. 



Not sure of the full details but there's more info at www.cinemablend.com

Why not the United Kingdom? Or even the country that LEGO originated from? Typical United States forgetting other countries in the world exist again.  :laugh:

I believe it has something to do with Quebec being under a French code of law, as opposed to English common law  Posted Image

I don't think they forgot, I think tt's probably because it's sponsored  by the WB entertainment, a subsidiary company of the American multinational multimedia company Time Warner. A world wide contest might be just a little too big for them handle  Posted ImagePosted Image


Edit: I still can't enter... I don't has a MyFace account! I hates Facebook!
