Commercial contest

For the opening scene in which Henri flips between TV channels, a contest was hosted on the Brick à Brack forums for people to create brief animations to appear in the scene. The contest began on July 9, 2021, with a deadline of July 22. Entrants were asked to create something that could immediately be identified as a commercial, and were mostly free to create the subject matter themselves. Entries were required to be no longer than 5 seconds and not refer to Henri, Edmond, or any events from the series.[2]

The contest received 10 entries, from Stéphane Triquoit, "Blue Gacha", "Brique51", "Ogeid Animation", "MOI30540", "The Little Brick", "Yael's Brickfilms", "Thiago100", "BrickMDprod'", and "SquittyStudios". Two winners were selected and included in the film: "Parfum Il Maschio" by Stéphane Triquoit, and "Tronçonneuse Coup'Tout" by "BrickMDprod'". The other entries can be seen here.
