Enjoy A Short Transient Event Right-away (commonly abbreviated to EASTER), is an annual brickfilming competition. Participants must create an Easter themed brickfilm with the duration of 15 or 20 seconds (depending on the host) within a given time limit, which is usually about two weeks. Originally hosted on Brickfilms.com in 2007 by Richard Frost, EASTER is now hosted on the website Bricks in Motion. The 2015 edition of the contest was hosted by Benjamin Ely.
E.A.S.T.E.R. Festival Edit
The original EASTER brickfilming contest was called E.A.S.T.E.R. Festival, and was hosted on Brickfilms.com in 2007 by Richard Frost, the Minister of Film Contests at the time. The competition duration was from February 18th to April 10th. Entries were required to be 15 seconds or under.
16 of the 20 entries successfully followed the rules and qualified and were judged by a popular vote. Participants were required to vote on another person's film or they would be disqualified from the contest. There were also additional ballots submitted by site staff members Tim Hui, Michael J. Green, Nathan Wells and Philip Heinrich. This is the only edition of the contest to emphasise the top five rather than the top three.
