Brickfilms Wiki

Nine Elements, One Problem is a 2004 comedy brickfilm by Lewis Chen about a wheel and a robot finding an unfamiliar sloped block.[1][2] It was made for the 10 Brick Contest on the forums and came in fourth place, and it was also one of the three prize winners as one of the hosts of the contest came in second place and did not receive a prize.[3]


A wheel and a robot are exploring when the wheel finds a sloped block and attracts the attention of the robot. They examine it, and the robot tries tapping it. The wheel goes to the side of it and tries revving up and crashing into it, but nothing happens. The wheel comes back around to face the sloped side and builds speed before driving up it. It is sent flying straight up into the air, and comes crashing down on top of the robot.[2]
