Re: BCC-09 (winner is...)

Well, just go to brickcinema.com and register. There's no age limit.
Nice prizes.
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 Gay Alien series is on its way, don't worry. mini/smile

Re: BCC-09 (winner is...)

If you can explain in the storytellng that this should/could be YOUR christmas 2020 - yes.
If you can Explain in the man are YOU in 2020 - yes.
Otherwise : I don`t think so.

Re: BCC-09 (winner is...)

Just 5 days to deadline

Re: BCC-09 (winner is...)

So who entered into this? I would have, but I ran out of time. mini/sad

I do not care about your opinion, unless it has to do with it needing more ponies.

Re: BCC-09 (winner is...)

No one from Bim entered. mini/jaw
I am very sad about that that nobody from a big community like BiM entered.

I was wondering why?
Was the theme to hard? ( mini/shifty )
Are the prizes to bad? ( mini/no  )

Hm....

Re: BCC-09 (winner is...)

I had no time, plus no good idea, but I would love and FXlab prizes!

Re: BCC-09 (winner is...)

We would have entered, but we were already in the middle of making a Christmas film (Twas The Night Before Christmas) that is now in the releases section, so we didn't have time. If we had known though sooner about this contest though, we would have entered.  The contest does sound like fun though. mini/delirium

Re: BCC-09 (winner is...)

Mario, the theme was very cheesy, I think of heartwarming things on Christmas. Maybe you should modify the contest into some short contest like brawl, or something, new theme, easier to enter. mini/wink

Re: BCC-09 (winner is...)

Next time you make a contest with great software prizes though, I'm entering (provided the theme thingy is better)

Re: BCC-09 (winner is...)

I think people don't easily notice this contest, the theme is great and all,  it's also handy if people easyily can submit their film.

Re: BCC-09 (winner is...)

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.

Re: BCC-09 (winner is...)

the theme should have been something like "Determination"

Re: BCC-09 (winner is...)

Which relates to Christmas how?

I was going to enter, but it was too late because I only came up with an idea a week before the deadline and I can't animate during the week...

Yes, but that's only one plot. You'd need something more open.

Re: BCC-09 (winner is...)

@ Sméagol
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.

Merry Christmas,
Mario

Re: BCC-09 (winner is...)

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.
