A Brickfilm Christmas is a 2017 community project brickfilm coordinated by Christof Muñoz, in association with Bricks in Motion.[1] It takes the format of a television Christmas special, running for a full half-hour with commercial breaks. It includes animation from 20 different community members. It is the longest ever original community project brickfilm, and it is the first listed as being in official association with Bricks in Motion.

Production Edit

On the 11th of September 2017, Christof Muñoz proposed his idea for a collaborative BiM half-hour Christmas special, and the concepts of brickfilmers telling their personal Christmas stories in the film as well as commercial breaks made up of short brickfilms.[2] An initial submission deadline of October 31 was mentioned, but main story submissions were accepted until November 28, after which Muñoz animated the framing device segments with the signature figures of the story contributors.[3] Kristóf Fekete-Kovács offered to provide original music and sound editing for these segments. Commercials continued to be accepted up until the release day. The film was released on December 17, being created in a shorter time compared to previous community projects.[4]

Plot Edit

On Christmas Eve, all operations at BFC International Airport are halted due to snowy weather. A group of six brickfilmers find themselves grounded in the airport overnight, and they tell the stories of their favorite Christmas memories to help pass the time.
