Celebrations are happening across the galaxy! But how do they look? We’re asking you to create Brickfilms in the Star Wars™ universe, based around some of the best ‘Earth’ holidays!
Your brickfilm should relate to one of the following themes:
May the 4th (Star Wars™ Day)
Summer Holidays/Back to School
Holiday season (Christmas, New Year etc.)
Your brickfilms should be between 15 and 30 seconds and either feature royalty free music/sounds, using the provided sound effects from Lucasfilm (See below)or be silent.
We will be making this library of sound effects from Lucasfilm available to users who wish to use the official sound effects. These assets must only be used for this contest. For full information please see our ‘Fine Print’ section of this contest.
For the first time, there will be a double fan vote! There will be one fan vote to decide one winner of each category (see categories above). These four winners will then go into a second vote with the potential of winning the ultimate prize on top of the first prize!
Each of the 4 winners of the first Fan Vote will win the following:
75309 LEGO Star Wars™ Republic Gunship™ construction set
75288 LEGO Star Wars™ AT-AT™ construction set
