is producing Bound, a full length castle-themed brickfilm, and YOU can get involved. Greg Tull, the director, and his team have asked us to help create the background for this scene (see a large version of this picture here
Here's all you have to do:
1. Create an all-LEGO scene (non-LEGO sky backdrop is okay) that can be digitally inserted into the stop-motion image above. What are these guys riding past? Could it be some old ruins? A spooky forest? Distant mountains? Watch the trailer
and read the synopsis
for inspiration, but be creative. The scene should NOT include figures or animals, as it will be a static scene. The foreground section is 90 studs wide, so ideally your backdrop will be similar in size (smaller scenes could be stretched to fit, but it would probably look bad). Microscale and forced perspective are fine, but they should fit in as a backdrop to the provided foreground image.
2. Post as large an image as you can to Flickr or some other publicly available site. Greg asks for images at least 1920x1080 in size, but bigger and higher resolution is better. Ideally the lighting of the background should be similar to the provided foreground image.
3. Post a link to the larger image and a smaller image fitting forum guidelines in THIS thread by Sunday October 5
(midnight US EST).
Greg will pick his top three, and a forum poll will determine the winner. The winning image will be included in Bound: the Movie
, and the builder will be included in the credits. Greg will also send the winner an autographed copy of the movie.
Update: Since admins and mods are not involved in the judging for this (Greg and then a vote of all in the community will pick the winner) I think it's only fair that there are no restrictions on who can enter. Admins and mods, let's see what you can do on this one!
