Re: Take a Leap

I might participate, so I'll go ahead and submit a few theme ideas:

-Forbidden love
-Work in Progress
-Creative endeavor

And here's a challenge suggestion if you need it (I might add more later):
-Character with no articulation

How do you sign up and when does it take place:D

The topic post says:

It starts at 12:00 GMT Saturday the 27th of February and ends at 12:00 GMT Sunday the 28th of February.

and

Secondly if you want to enter you must think of a theme which is preferably a phrase so that I can put the best of the themes in a hat and draw one at 12GMT.
You must have a theme that you would like picked out by 10AM GMT on the day of the event.

Re: Take a Leap

I won't be able to participate, but I thought I might throw in a few theme ideas because why not:

-Appearance vs Reality
-Puppets on a String
-They came from BEYOND!
-Paranoia
-Duplicity and Deception
-Relativity
-Insomnia
-Perception
-The Aftermath
-Survival
-Isolation
-My Echo, My Shadow, and Me

Not sure if some of these are perhaps a bit too esoteric, but enjoy nonetheless.

Will the mod element for this theme be a fatal incident involving a dentist and a trampoline?

Nobody knows the mod elements until it's time to make the film.

WHAT IS TAKE A LEAP?
THAC is a brickfilming contest that lasts for exactly 24 hours. All brainstorming, writing, recording, animating, editing and submitting must be done within the time limit. It's a challenge, it's frantic, and it's a lot of fun!
Take a Leap is an unofficial event following the same basic guidelines of the official THAC but with some homegrown twists.
Take a Leap is not a contest, it's an event.

WHEN DOES TAKE A LEAP? START?
It starts at 12:00 GMT Saturday the 27th of February and ends at 12:00 GMT Sunday the 28th of February.

But how can we be sure nobody is cheating? Because all the mod elements will be picked out of a hat on the day of the event to mark the start of the event. While we cannot prevent cheating entirely with this method, it's a fun event and I would hope that nobody cheats. I don't want to hear any accusations of cheating after the event is over. It is fun to attempt and the only person you would be cheating is yourself.

It ends exactly 24 hours after starting, hence the name TwentyFourHourAnimationCompetion. No one, not even the host knows the mod elements before the contest starts so asking someone won't help. If someone does tell... then that's a lie or somebody is cheating.

Re: Take a Leap

Wow, really looking forward to this, definitely going to enter. mini/smile


Theme Ideas:

Frustration

Speed

The seedy side of life

EDIT: I also had a bit of a question. You said the rules would be almost identical but slightly different to THAC. Are we allowed to included mature content (ie swearing, excessive violence) in our entry?

Yeah that's fine, I'd even slightly encourage something a little darker or outside of THAC bounds, though not just for the sake of it of course. 

Edit: Even if you feel like you can't make it for the whole thing, feel free to try a fun film in whatever time you have free. 
Also if you have any ideas for challenges that would be really nice as the current list isn't as large as I would like. (The Current challenge list for ideas).

See y'all tomorrow.

-Characters must speak in rhymes
-No sound effects or music
-Character can only say one line throughout the whole film
-Must use custom made minifigures
-Must be more than 2 minutes long
-Use clay for ground
