You have to upload the finished films to the category Contest / Christmas 08 until 19.12.2008 in the Flash Video format (.FLV)
How to create FLV?
Well, just go to brickcinema.com and register. There's no age limit.
Can I enter one where a man has a Christmas party at his house, but the aliens keep bothering him? (In their first appearance in the movie, they took his Christmas tree, so he had to by another one, but that tree is also taken.)
The prizes were very good, I know that many people didn't know what BCC-09 meant and were asking me if there would be any Christmas contests this year. Because of that I added (Christmas Contest) to the end, and featured this contest in the chat room as the topic for a month or so.
Based on discussions I had with other people looking at the contest in chat, I think what it boiled down to was a very difficult, and honestly quite poor, theme. It was inventive but very specific and limiting. 2020 isn't very far in the future so if I were to make a realistic entry it'd be me celebrating a traditional Christmas with family, which would be really boring to watch. Beyond that I'm not too excited by the prospect of making myself the main character in a film anyway, so when you clarified that the maker of the film has to be in the film that really limited my prospects, it shut down the idea I had planned to make.
I guess if it were me I might try for something much more open ended, it's more appealing to enter a "Christmas" contest, which leaves a lot of freedom to the director, than a "How will you, personally, celebrate Christmas 11 years from now?" contest.
So may be we should talk about an theme for the next christmas-contest in 2010 on Brick-Cinema which would be a bit more interesting for Bim-User and BB-Users.
Of curse - I think - there are some themes which could be interesting for both forums.
Because, the last past years all forums made there "own" contests (Thats not bad!), but there is until yet (not realy) a contest which givs a bit more interacting between the forums.
That dosn´t mean a contest "between/against" the forums.
Anyway, to late for this year, may be next year.
If the winnsers are out I will post it here.
Yeah that's true about interaction; like I said I tried to get the word out about BCC on this site, if somebody who speaks German could let the brickboard.de people know about Avant-Garde that'd be appreciated. I hope you got better participation for BCC on Brickboard, perhaps they were more open to the theme but I'm just telling you the impression I got from talking to people here about the contest.
