The Spirit of Adventure Contest is a brickfilming competition currently being hosted by Seán Willis on Bricks in Motion. It is the seventh Bricks in Motion summer contest, following the Sight & Sound Contest in 2016 and the first to be hosted by Willis, after he took over as administrator of the site earlier in 2017.

History Edit

With the Brickfilm Rapidly All Week Long Contest becoming an official Bricks in Motion competition in 2017, a vote was held to determine whether it would overlap with the Spirit of Adventure contest as it had with previous summer contests, or if Spirit of Adventure would be delayed until after BRAWL. The vote decided that the overlap would remain.[1]

The Spirit of Adventure Contest was announced on the 5th of June 2017 with a deadline of September 10. The rules remain largely the same as the Sight & Sound contest, with a minimum time limit of one minute. The contest is sponsored by Dragonframe, Brickstuff and The LEGO Animation Book.

The theme of the contest was intended to focus more on story than the previous two Bricks in Motion summer contests, which had centered primarily around more technical aspects. The theme was decided in collaboration with Nathan Wells, who also named the contest. Philip Heinrich also provided assistance in the making of the contest.[2]

Judging and prizes Edit

The contest will be judged by a panel consisting of Seán Willis, Philip Heinrich, Bruno Lefèvre, David Pickett and Dave "Big Monkey" Smith. The judging system remains the same as preceding contests, with no formal set of criteria and the top ten rankings being released.

There will be a prize pool available to the top three ranking films. The available prizes will be a copy of Dragonframe 4 with the recently introduced Bluetooth controller, a Brickstuff Pico LED light board starter kit and a sealed copy of 21305 Maze. All winners will additionally receive a digital copy of Bricks in Motion: The Documentary.

A new addition to the contest is the Promising Director Prize. This will be awarded to a newer or less experienced entrant who shows great promise. The prize will be a copy of The LEGO Animation Book signed by the authors, David Pagano and David Pickett.
