I thought it was substantial enough to list as preceding Out of Time on its page, but I know Buxton considers Out of Time to be his first real film, so when making a delineation between main films and other releases, I thought it better fit in other. Similar to how I myself don't consider the film that was called Benny n' Lee episode 1 to be an official installment, so list it in the other section on the Benny n' Lee page.
Both films mainly focus on two characters, and both films have a more comedic tone. The Rick and Steve series is even mentioned on the dynamic duos page as a dynamic duo series. Please tell me, why do you keep taking both this and Weed Cops out of the dynamic duos category? I didn't mean to do anything wrong, but as far as I could tell both should be considered as dynamic duos.
The dynamic duo page says "Though there are some earlier examples of recurring duos in brickfilming such as Biff and Mario and Rick and Steve, the series that laid the foundation for the dynamic duo as a genre was Steve and Dave by Nate Burr." This marks a separation between a duo and a "dynamic duo" series, and means to imply that Rick and Steve is not a dynamic duo series (I am debating whether or not to take Biff and Mario out, as it is more borderline). Dynamic duo is more of a genre than a descriptor. Really, the best way to describe it is "like Steve and Dave", because that is where all the hallmarks originated. A lot of talking and sitting on couches; little in the way of major plot points. It's hard to explain, but it has been recognised as such within the community for well over a decade. Weed Cops may have two guys, but it is nothing like Steve and Dave. I would argue that the Unholy Trio better fits in to be described as a dynamic duo series, despite starring a trio.
I'm really not sure about these films you have been making pages on... They seem pretty random, and I don't see what is noteworthy about them. Some of them may have large viewcounts, but basically anything can with the right keywords and a bit of luck, especially in the old days of YouTube.
Hey Silleypenta, I wanted to ask a questiom. I am familiar with the policies about making pages for one's own films, and I also know that the main reason people passed the policy was out of fear that after one made pages for their films, they would leave the wiki and not come back. Well, I have been a faithful editor of this wiki for 2 years now, and I was wondering if I could have your permission to make some pages about some of my films, seeing as I edit this wiki pretty regularly, and I could also use some of the exposure. I will still stick around and edit other pages if I am allowed to make pages for my own films, and I won't leave, at least not for a while. Anyway, I know you're the admin, and I know you've made pages for your films, but I know that you are a pretty notable brickfilmer, and I am not as notable. Anyway, I just wanted to ask if it would be ok for me to make pages about some of my films. Thanks, and have a great day.
Most of those are reasons as to why it is not. Wikipedia defines it as "A cult film, also commonly referred to as a cult classic, is a film with a cult following, obscure or unpopular with mainstream audiences, and often revolutionary or ironically enjoyed." A brickfilm that is an extremely well known all-time classic as recognized by all people cannot be a cult brickfilm. It can't be a cult classic if it is a regular classic.
So, I've read the Dynamic Duos page, and understand what criteria a brickfilm must meet to be considered a 'dynamic duo' film, and I put The Cleaners and Weed Cops in the Dynamic Duos category, seeing as both films center around two protagonists. But my edits on both have been reverted, and I've redone the edits, and I just wanted your opinion. Thanks
To be perfectly honest, it basically comes down to me just knowing. It would be impossible to lay out a formal set of criteria that must be met. Some things mean automatically deserving a page, such as winning a major contest or award (i.e. BFG awards Best Film). Other than that, it just comes down to a judgement call based on a film's influence or standing within a community, or something.
Shouldn't be some guidlines on what qualifiels as a feature length brickfilm; like the length of the brickfilm must be more than 3o minutes long to qualify this criteria. Or something similair. I was just curious.
Sillypenta wrote: This is a good idea. I will add guidelines to the page. Previously, I have used the usual standard for a real film to be considered feature length, which is 40 minutes or longer.
Should complications of brickfilms be allowed on the list. For example that some one made a 12 episode brickfilm series and combine it into one film. Is that allowed to appear on the list if it made the 40 minute mark?
I think it should not count if it is a series of individual films that has been combined later. However, it should count if it is one single film that is split up and released in parts, such as the ones by Andrew Bermudez on the list. These would have been uploaded when YouTube only let you put up 10 mins at a time. I think some things could be considered exceptions. I put LSW Project on the list which was released in parts, but the parts were unfinished and more like previews for what was intended to be one single film that was never finished.
