#SummerContest2018 - Week 3

By Maxou44 and chris_gbp (Jul. 16, 2018)



Good morning, everyone!

Congratulations on your fantastic participations last week, many of you participated and we thank you!

This week we're kicking off a totally different event - a set event! You have until 22 July 2018 23h59 to participate in this one.

Below, you will find below the link to a chapter of a sci-fi story wrote by @dom_10. From this text and your imagination, you will have to make a set based off of this story prompt - one you would use if you were to brickfilm this story. This set will need to be photographed in a cinematographic way (choice of framing, light, etc...) Don't just submit your creation as a selfie with a cheap filter! All entries will be judged on photographic quality.

Story Prompt in French : https://www.brick-a-brack.com/fichiers/uploads/documents/54/cb7a09cb-fr-space-brick-chvii.pdf
Story Prompt in English : https://www.brick-a-brack.com/fichiers/uploads/documents/54/55772ea0-bab-summer-contest-2018-week-3.pdf

Your set photo needs be sent as an email attachment to summercontest2018@brick-a-brack.com with the subject"[WEEK3]" followed by your Brick à Brack's nickname. For example:"[WEEK3] Bob". The 3 members of the podium will be offered the LEGO set #60150



Share your progress with the hashtag #SummerContest2018 on social media, and stay up-to-date on upcoming events by regularly checking our site and events calendar.

Good luck and see you next Monday!

Sounds fun. That set doesn't look bad, the scooter is nice. I'm just eagerly awaiting the results for the others.

(rubbing my hands together excitedly) I can't wait to do this!

I think I will take part in this one! Good luck all!

Definitely gonna enter this one! Won't have my entry officially judged since I helped edit the script and that'd be unfair, but I got a box of BrickStuff lights that are practically begging to be used for this week's events so I want to build something at least

I want some Brickstuff lights SOO bad. Too bad I'd rather spend the money on Lego.

@Isaac The AnimatorI want some Brickstuff lights SOO bad. Too bad I'd rather spend the money on Lego.

Honestly, it's soooo worthwhile to just pick some up. For one, BrickStuff is a Brick à Brack partner so that's cool. For another, sets and models just look fantastic with them. Here's something I worked on last night - I used a Brickstuff light in the lamppost.


Probably gonna string these up in the robot's boat-shop from the script, but I'm not quite sure how I want it to look yet

I so want those lights! They look so sick But I wonder how long it might take to ship...

How much money is it for a kit with different colored lights and completely ready to go?

I have no idea

So this Starter Kit is around $50, but it will ship for free in the US and it includes a lot of great lighting options. (https://www.brickstuff.com/store/p3/Pico_LED_Light_Board_Starter_Kit_for_LEGO®_Models.html)

There are other parts you can pick up as well, like dimming controllers and USB power supplies. With the starter kit, you can set up quite a few lights and get a working setup for your set in a few minutes. As someone who's worked a fair amount with electronics and custom kits, this one is very high quality.

But for now, don't panic if you can't get these in your contest set.
