Celebrations are happening across the galaxy! But how do they look? The LEGO Ideas team is asking fans in a new contest to create brickfilms in the Star Wars universe, based around some of the best ‘Earth’ holidays! Read the details of this fun contest are below.
For this contest, your brickfilm should relate to one of the following four themes: May the 4th (Star Wars Day), Father’s Day, summer holidays/back to school, or the year-end holiday season (Christmas, New Year etc.).
Your brickfilm should be between 15 and 30 seconds and either feature royalty-free music/sounds, using the provided sound effects from Lucasfilm, or be silent. The LEGO Ideas team is making a library of sound effects from Lucasfilm available to contestants who wish to use the official sound effects. Please note that these assets must only be used for this contest. For full information, see the fine print section of the contest page.
Also note that for the first time, there will be a double fan vote! There will be one fan vote to decide one winner of each category (based on the categories above).
