It’s time for the RESULTS of THAC 2022!
This was a phenomenal year, it was so much fun hosting and watching all of your entries. All 120 entries in fact, the most entries for THAC ever! The judges came together and decided to rank not only the Top 15 as previously announced, but the TOP 20! However, don’t expect it to be the standard for future THACs or BRAWLs.

The judging process worked as follows, each judge watched every film. After watching, each judge ranked their personal top 25 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.
The judges this year are:
Penta is a Bricks in Motion administrator and runs the BrickFilms Wiki. He is well known for his History of Brickfilms series and Benny n’ Lee, and co-hosts the World of Brickfilms Podcast. Earlier this year, Penta released the highly anticipated Taco Trouble 2.
BertL is a long-standing member of the Brickfilming community, and took part in the very first THAC in 2005 with his entry Onorno. It is largely thanks to his major contributions to the Brickfilm Archival Project, that many Brickfilms from the early to late 2000s remain seen.

JOCo is well-known for his highly energetic, ambitious Johnny Thunder series and has a recent series of high placing entries, including last THAC’s 3rd place winning entry Johnny Thunder and the Orb of Wakto, BRAWL 2021’s 2nd place winning entry Johnny Thunder & the Heart of Faber’s Peak, and most recently, the 5th place ManiFest entry A Question Before The Board.
