Adding your brickfilms to Brick à Brack’s library is a great way to show your work and participate in the community. This video will show you how to upload your own films and use the sites’ tools to make your brickfilm stand out!
For this tutorial, you will need to have a video uploaded to YouTube, Daily Motion, Vimeo, or Bricks in Motion.
1. Add a brickfilm
First, go to the Brickfilms page on Brick à Brack. Here, you can see every video uploaded to the site, search by genre, or even look up a specific film. To upload your film, click the blue “Add a Brickfilm” button. Select the type of brickfilm you are submitting and enter your video’s link. Check the box if you are fine with Brick à Brack showing your video for exhibitions or promotions, then click “Submit My Brickfilm.”
Brick à Brack automatically imports video data from the original upload, but you get a chance to edit everything before it goes live. You can change the title, select the main language, and add a synopsis of the video. Click on the genres your film fits best – you can choose up to four. Then click the radio button next to the main genre – this is important as it is the main genre that will appear when your film is searched.
2. Add more information
You’re finished! Well, mostly. The best way to make your video stand out is by adding more information. People who see your video will want to see more of your content if you describe your video more, so take the time to fill in as much info as you can! Let’s start with the blue “Information Tab.” You probably already filled a lot of this in, but now you have the chance to edit the title, change the privacy settings, and language.
If you don’t like the current thumbnail, you can select one of your own! This is a great tool as YouTube often does not let smaller channels use thumbnails. You can upload thumbnails on Brick à Brack for whatever video you like!
You can edit the synopsis and genres or note that the brickfilm has been cancelled for whatever reason. Include some director’s notes so people can see what you were thinking about when you made your film! Finally, you can add technical details – such as the camera you filmed with, the software you edited with, and so forth.
|If you make big changes to your video, click the big green “Save my brickfilm” button. If it’s just a tiny change, click the smaller “save without notify” button. This helps us keep the notifications feed clean!|
|The best way to share your video on the site is to engage with the community and support your fellow brickfilmers. They’ll return the favor!|

A small clarification : The Preproduction/Production/Postproduction tabs are not merely a more in-depth "Behind the scenes". They kind of are, but their main purpose is to be filled during the production of the brickfilm (when you list the brickfilm as a "project"), to let everyone know how the project is doing. It's a production log.
Anyway, I'm sure this tutorial will be helpful.
