SummerContest2018 [AFOL Contest] Brickfilm

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Good morning to you all. 

If several of you read this text diagonally, I'll be direct. YES, there is an test of MOC

With the agreement of the Eurobricks staff, We are here to announce a new competition in the AFOL universe. It is soberly entitled Summercontest2018

Every Monday morning, we will come to announce you a new event and you will generally have one week to participate. For each event, the 3 winners arriving at the top of the ranking will leave with magnificent prizes provided by our partners such as BrickWarriors, Brickstuff and of course LEGO. At each event, participants will obtain ranking points. These points will be added to each new round and then added to the general classification of the competition. It is not necessary to participate in all events, but the members of the podium who have accumulated the most points during the different events will receive an exclusive badge on their BàB profile as well as other surprises. 

As we are super nice, we give you the list of the tests in advance, just to put you in condition and to allow you to set your evenings between friends 

Week #1 : Script Contest (July 2 to July 8)
Week #2 : Adaptation Contest (July 9 to July 14)
Week #3 : Set design contest (July 16 to July 22)
Week #4 : Animation Contest (July 23 to July 29)
Week #5 : Soundtrack Contest (July 30 to August 5)
Week #6 : Animation Contest (August 5 to August 12)
Week #7 : Storyboard Contest (August 13 to August 19)
Week #8 : Brickfilm contest (August 20 to September 2)

We have arranged to insert a non brickfilmic proof and a brickfilmic proof each time, in order to avoid you the overdose! We hope you like this concept and that many of you will participate!

We know that the brickfilm certainly rejects it, that's why, some tests are created to allow to participate without having any knowledge in the animation of a brickfilm. Writing a script, building a set... are easily achievable for an amateur MOCer. It is not necessary to have been a member of Brick-à-Brack to participate. The contest is open to all for all events you choose to participate. 

As you can imagine, a contest per week for two months is going to be complicated to manage for its staff, even if a lot of things have been prepared in advance we will have to judge the entries and it might take time, so if you don't want to participate in an event, that you are curious to discover the brickfilm, you want to offer us a helping hand to become a member of the jury. Of course, if you get on the jury, you become ineligible for the test you are marking. You can't be everywhere at once!  Sorry: Send us a small MP if you feel like it. 

See you on July 2, 2018 for the announcement of the first event!
May fate be favourable to you!

We are at your disposal to answer your questions on this topic.

Week 1:

Sorry I'm late, I'm on a business trip.  Unfortunately, I cannot take the time to say more. See on this link which will no doubt answer your questions. https://www.brick-a-brack.com/articles/article/809/ We'll stick around and answer your questions. Good luck to all participants

Week 2:

Welcome to the adaptation contest! This week, you have until Sunday 15 July 2018, 23h59 (end of all time zones) to create a brickfilm adaptation

This week, you must take a scene from one of your favorite brickfilms and remake it. You can't reuse the soundtrack/content of the original project, however - you must remake everything yourself! The original brickfilm can't be an adaption of a movie and you can't be the creator of the original film. Your adaptation must last at least 30 seconds, outside the credits.

Once the brickfilm is finished, post it on Brick à Brack. Put the link of the brickfilm which inspired you in the brickfilm page description; then you will be able to present the brickfilm on the page of the dedicated contest : https://www.brick-a-brack.com/contests/contest/13/

For a list of all the prizes, please check out the Brick à Brack article: https://www.brick-a-brack.com/articles/article/810/

Week 3 : 

And here is the week that many are waiting for on this site: the decor event ! You have until 22 July 2018 23h59 to participate in this one.

Dom_10 is a big fan of the space range. This passion was combined with a love of writing. He has already written no less than 12 chapters of his space adventure novel. You can read everything (in French) at https://www.wattpad.com/story/129592491-space-brick

It's time to bring some illustrative images to his adventure. And these to the best MOCers that this contest is addressed. One of the chapters in his book has been selected for this event. From the text ( in English ) provided in this link, https://www.brick-a-brack.com/articles/article/811/ you must create a MOC from one of the scenes in this extract. Then to take a picture of this MOC in a cinematographic way (choice of the framing, the light, the decoration). 

If you have any questions, don't hesitate, we'll stick around. 
Entries are to be published when you have finished on this thread. The deadline is exactly one week away. (a few hours ready if late there would be, we're cool on it ^^)

- The first round ended with 39 entries. The jury gave itself two weeks to read, mark and comment on each of the entries. Objective achieved, the results are here https://www.brick-a-brack.com/articles/article/826/. In the meantime, we can get you started reading these different scripts by following this link. https://www.brick-a-brack.com/threads/thread/4518/1/

- The second test asked the participant to create a brickfilm in just one week by taking another excerpt from a known brickfilm according to your free choice. 
It's time to discover the 18 entries by taking a look at the following YouTube playlist:

- The set test 3 just finished, we're recounting the entries. In a few days, you will be able to discover the participations. 

- And race number four starts this week. This is a pure animation test. No need for successful sets or scripts we simply ask to animate your characters well. To do this, you need to show your evidence by making a sequence with one effect slowed down and another accelerated. We advise you to leave on an animation basis of 12 or 15 frames per second "to be comfortable". 
The first will leave with box #60121 from LEGO, the second will be offered box #60164 and the third member of the podium will be offered box #60158!

Good morning, everyone!

It's been a crazy summer of contests - you're almost at the end! We meet again today for the penultimate event in the #SummerContest2018!

Since we started with with writing scripts, let's switch to making storyboards! For those who don't know, a storyboard is a series of drawings that represent each shot of your scenario. It's like a comic book; each box represents a shot in your film. If you're still confused, check out this article for more: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Storyboard

For this round, our scriptwriter is the infamous @Brickfield54. You'll be adapting his script into a storyboard! 

The script (in English) https://www.brick-a-brack.com/fichiers/uploads/documents/1/c0ddf7dd-sc7-brickfield574-paracrerimanes-en.pdf
The script (in French) https://www.brick-a-brack.com/fichiers/uploads/documents/1/be02cbce-fr-brickfield54.pdf

No need to do something very pretty - we won't be mean if you can't draw too well. The quality of the drawing will therefore not be evaluated. On the other hand, your organization and the way you see things shot by shot will be evaluated. 001.gif

Take a sheet of paper, a pencil (or pen if you are 100% sure of your skills). Draw, scan or take a picture of the result and send it to us by mail at summercontest2018@brick-a-brack.com with in the subject"[WEEK7]" followed by your nickname on Brick in Brack:"[WEEK7] Let malo film".

Send us either one pdf, or several images. If there are several pages, number them so we don't get confused.

You have one week, until Sunday 19 August 2018, 23h59 (all timezones) to enter!

For this event, amazing prizes are to be won! The winner will win the set #21039 from LEGO, the second the set #31080 and the third one of the podium the set #42074! 001.gif

It's time for assessments.  

- To start in order, the results of week 7. The storyboard is a step often forgotten by brickfilmers, yet it is often a very valuable help to effectively organize the animation step. It was necessary to use this contest to allow some brickfilmers to become familiar with this tool. 7 members dared to take up this challenge. You can discover these participations on the following link( zip file: https://www.brick-a-brack.com/fichiers/uploads/documents/814/5cf13279-sc-7.zip) The jury composed of Brickfield54, BS production and Max_LG debated to find a ranking. Discover the ranking, points awarded and comments on the following link. https://www.brick-a-brack.com/fichiers/uploads/documents/814/704eb1b4-summercontest2018-week-7-global.pdf 

- Week 8, honored the animation of an animal either of personal construction or minifig creation in LEGO. In view of the complexity, the jury exceptionally allocated 2 weeks to the link of one to offer quality participation. 10 candidates volunteered (see the playlist

- Finally, the overall results of the competition. This eighth round of the summer competition is part of the 7 other rounds you have discovered week after week. After discussion, we opted for the most equitable and respectful solution for those who participated in many of these events. Each of the scores were added together to form an overall ranking. The first 7 events with the same one-week duration received the same coefficient. Only the last week (considered more complex) received a double coefficient. This choice was made according to the total duration of the test (two weeks instead of one).  


Now discover the ranking of the big winners of the summer contest
