8x8x8 - Nineth edition!

By Ferdinand (Jun. 1, 2020)



Ladies and Gentlemen..

Brick à Brack have a new contest for you. Well, no, I mean not so new : the good old 8x8x8 !

Presentation :


Seriously! The contest the most iconic of Brick-à-Brack is coming back in a ninth edition !
The rules doesn't change : you must create a brickfilm in a cube of 8 bricks in height, 8 bricks in length and 8 bricks in width!



Some small details :
  • No LEGO piece (brick, decor, minifig) is allowed to come out of this cube.
  • The action of your brickfilm must be concentrated only in this cube.
  • You can place any type of decoration outside your cube if it is not LEGO
  • Your LEGO decor can be smaller than limits of 8x8x8, but now it must to be viewable.
  • The cube can move (for example, you can build a car that respects the dimensions and move it!)
The rules are complicated, so have no hesitation to ask if you have any questions about that!
Warning : any participation that does not respect the rules can be disqualified...

As a result, the staff can ask you for pictures of filming if we suspect a breaking of the rules, so don't forget to take pictures of your decors.
Your efforts will be rewarded because the first 5 will receive a LEGO set !

Set reference : 71121, 60265, 80007, 75967 et 70433

As in the last contest, a minifig will be randomly given to a participant who isn't in the top 5!
You have until Sunday July 12th at 11:59 PM to register your participation.

With those words, good brickfilming! If you want to be a judge, you're welcome!
Good luck!

Hype! What about time limit? What's the minimum time limit for this?

@GUATEMAX AnimationsHype! What about time limit? What's the minimum time limit for this?

There isn't minimum time limit I think

I think too.

Do you need to have a stack of 8 bricks in the shot to show how tall it is, or is that optional?

How do we submit our entries?

That's not necessary. It's not aesthetically pleasing. You had to imagine an 8-by-8-by-8 cube. No lego pieces outside of that cube.
Check out the entries from the previous edition to get an idea of the possibilities. https://www.brick-a-brack.com/contests/entries/11/

Always in the same place. By clicking on this link. Also visible on the home page. https://www.brick-a-brack.com/contests/register/27/

Sounds like an interesting contest! The eight ones that came before were before my time, so I'm excited to work on this one!

@GUATEMAX AnimationsHype! What about time limit? What's the minimum time limit for this?


Your film must be created between 31/05/2020 and 13/07/2020.

@YetgoThe eight ones that came before were before my time

Damn, I'd assumed you'd been around forever! I remember the 8th one occurring just around the time I joined.

Might even be able to take part this time.

@JO CoMight even be able to take part this time.
We hope.

Alrighty then, a few questions to pester you with.
What are the rules on things like violence, swearing, copyrighted material, and a min or max length?
I'm assuming compositing animated Lego outside of the 8x8x8 zone is prohibited. Or, say, having a screen in an 8x8x8 room showing footage of another area. How about transitions, like having a shot of a micro-scale building (≤8x8x8) with the camera smoothly pulling in through one of the windows to an 8x8x8 room?

I'm sure I'm forgetting something but all of that should be a good start!
