The Brickfilm Rapidly All Week Long contest, commonly abbreviated to BRAWL, is an annual brickfilming contest with a time limit of one week. Participants must create an entire brickfilm from scratch (with the exception of set building, music design, and sound effects) within seven days. BRAWL has been hosted on the website Bricks In Motion since its inception. The contest was conceived by Andrew Munzer and has been run by various individuals since 2008. Since 2013, BRAWL has been hosted by Nathan "Fun Sucker" Rossi. It became an official Bricks in Motion contest in 2017.

The First BRAWLEdit

Brawl08sigCropped

The first BRAWL was held on the Bricks In Motion Refugee Camp by Andrew Munzer from August 2nd, 2008 to August 9th 2008.[1] Munzer had originally considered using a line of dialogue as the mod element for the contest, but when this idea was subject to criticism, he settled on using the letter and colour mod elements as used in the Twenty-four Hour Animation Contest.[2] BRAWL was more forgiving with the mod element than THAC at the time, requiring only that it appeared in each shot, rather than each frame. This system would eventually be adopted for THAC with THAC XII. The contest received 11 entries and was judged by Nathan Wells, Nikolas Jaeger, and Philip Heinrich. Zach Macias was also slated to be a judge but submitted his ballot too late to be included.[3] Final results were calculated by also including a public viewer vote.[4]

BRAWL 2009Edit

Brawl09

BRAWL 2009 was hosted by Andrew Munzer and ran from August 23rd to August 30th.[5] It received 19 entries and the judges included Dylan Woodley, Randy "Noodle" Yard, Owen "NOStudios" Hyatt and Munzer himself.[6] Results for the contest took over 3 months to be posted which caused controversy on the Bricks in Motion forum.[7] Annoyed with the magnitude of complaints, Munzer decided to make the community wait even longer for the results after they had been finished,[8] generating further annoyance among the public and even some of the other contest judges.[9][10] In later years, he expressed regret over these actions.[11]

BRAWL 2011Edit

Due to his performance during BRAWL 2009 and a conflicting schedule in 2010, Andrew Munzer decided against hosting a BRAWL contest in 2010. Munzer attempted to organise the contest to be held by Philip Heinrich in 2010, but a poll for the next official Bricks in Motion contest resulted in the public choosing a month-long themed contest in September over a BRAWL in August.[12] The future of BRAWL seemed uncertain as Munzer had lost interest in ever hosting it again, but he was contacted by Aaron "Goliathan" Meyer in 2011 who wished to continue the contest on, which Munzer allowed.[13]

Brawl11

BRAWL 2011 was hosted by Aaron Meyer and ran from August 8th to August 15th.[14] It received 41 entries[15] and was judged by Meyer, Joseph Hayden, Aaron Bulger, Harrison Allen, "legostudiosplus", and Billo O'Loughlin. Controversy arose when Meyer first posted the top 10 results in the Bricks in Motion chatroom[16] and later posted the placement of all 41 entries with the order of the top 10 dramatically changed.[17]
