A very special thanks to our panel of judges this year:
Dewfilms is a Bricks in Motion moderator. This will be her third consecutive year hosting THAC. She has directed brickfilms, appeared in the Bricks in Motion Documentary, and regularly voice acts for other brickfilmers.
FilmDude is a longtime member of the brickfilming community. He frequents the Bricks in Motion Discord server and is always welcoming to other members. FilmDude regularly answers video and technical questions.
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. Penta is currently in production of a 10-minute long brickfilm called Taco Trouble 2.
Sebastian was the host of the Bricks in Motion Fright and Fear contest. He is currently working on a brickfilm called Welcome to Darkwood, a spinoff of Welcome to Darkmoor.
Willow Tree is the current host of THAC. He has entered a number of Bricks in Motion contests throughout the years including THAC and BRAWL.
Each judge watched every film. The judges then ranked their personal top 20 films. Each of the 5 judges’ lists were run through an instant run-off voting algorithm in Google Sheets, created by AquaMorph, to produce a single top 15 list reflective of all the judges’ decisions. The judges adjusted the top 15 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.
The prizes for THAC XVIII were generously provided by The LEGO Group via the LEGO® Ambassador Network. A huge thank you goes out to them!
I will be in touch with the top 3 entrants to discuss prizes. Thank you for another great year of THAC, everyone!
