Brickfilms Wiki

The Summer Contest 2019 (stylized as #SummerContest2019) was a brickfilming event hosted on Brick à Brack during July and August of 2019. It was the follow up to the Summer Contest 2018, and was organized in a similar manner, although at a smaller scale. The event consisted of three challenges spread out over two months, giving entrants 2 weeks to enter and 1 week to recover for every challenge.

Each challenge had prizes for the top 5, provided by The LEGO Group. The deadline of the final challenge was on August 25, 2019, and the results were announced on September 16.[1][2]

Challenge 1: Pre-production[]

The first challenge was announced on July 1, 2019. It focused on the pre-production process of brickfilming. Entrants were asked to write a script and create an accompanying storyboard. The theme prompt was "The discovery of the unknown!" (French "La découverte de l'inconnu !").[3][4] The deadline for this challenge was July 14, 2019. Prizes for the top 5 were LEGO sets: 70423 for first place, 76117 for 2nd place, 70842 for 3rd place, 75965 for 4th place, and a combination of smaller Xtra-themed sets for fifth place.[5]

The top 5 was announced at the end of the contest.[1][2] The link with the full ranking has become unavailable since 2019[6], but a full list of participants and their entries is still available (though some of the files are missing).[7] The first challenge had 20 entries in total.

Challenge 2: Production[]

The second challenge of the event was to create a brickfilm. Though there was no specific theme, there was one important rule: animators had to create a film using only one single camera shot, and no post-production visual effects were allowed.[8][9] Prizes for the top 5 were LEGO sets 76130 Stark Jet and the Drone Attack, 80103 Dragon Boat Race, "60234 Fun Fair - People Pack", 75945 Expecto Patronum, and 31058 Mighty Dinosaurs for places 1 to 5 respectively.[10]

The challenge had a total of 24 entries. The top 5 were announced at the end of the contest[1][2], along with the full results.[11]

Challenge 3: Post-production[]

The third and last challenge was focused on post-production. Entrants had to create a "dynamic trailer" based on already existing brickfilms, made by either themselves or others (with permission). Judging was based on the editing, soundtrack, and visual effects added by the entrant; special effects that were already in the original brickfilm did not count towards judging. The third challenge was announced on August 12, and the deadline was August 25.[12][13] Prizes were LEGO sets 70653 Firstbourne for 1st place, "75935 Baryonyx Face-Off: The Treasure Hunt" for 2nd place, a LEGO Hidden Side set for 3rd place, 75239 Hoth Shield Generator for 4th place, and "60221 Diving Yacht" for 5th place.[14]

The challenge had a total of 25 entries. The top 5 were announced at the end of the contest on September 16[1][2], along with the full results.[15]
