LEGO Movie Launches A Competition
Your clip could appear in the film...

If you’re the sort of person who watches LEGO movies on YouTube and thinks, ‘Meh! I can do better than that,’ your chance to put your little plastic bricks and non-licensed minifigures where your mouth is has come. No, don’t go putting LEGO bricks in your mouth – we know from experience that’s a choking hazard – instead, why not try creating a clip for a new competition launched by Warner Bros.’ The LEGO Movie?

Kicking off March 25, fans registered on the site ReBrick.com will be eligible to enter a homemade clip featuring LEGO that could end up part of the film.

The idea is to create a sequence using only LEGO bricks and non-licensed LEGO minifigures. Contestants will select a character and set their action sequence in one of the many LEGO worlds, including LEGO City, Space, Pirates, Western, Vikings, Dino, Castle, and others. The theme is a scene from the movie where the evil President Business (Will Ferrell) is threatening the citizens of the LEGO universe and they must rally to prevent an unspeakable disaster. They do this by quickly disassembling the elements of their environments, brick by brick, and rebuilding them into fantastic and fun hybrid vehicles and tools – the stranger and more innovative, the better, like rocket/dragons or butterfly/speedboats – to take part in an epic battle.

Sequences should be uploaded to YouTube and bookmarked on the ReBrick.com site, where the 25 examples earning the most “Likes” will then go on to the final round to be assessed by judges including the film’s directors, Phil Lord and Chris Miller.

The grand prize winner will receive a trip for two to Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank, California, for a VIP Tour; a meeting with the directors, to participate in a LEGO build; an exclusive LEGO film camera designed and built by the official LEGO model shop; plus souvenir items from the movie’s set, signed by the designers. Plus, their winning entry may also be edited into the film’s big battle sequence. There are also second and third place prizes of trips to the studios and merchandise.

For the full competition rules and details, head to ReBrick.com. Set to arrive in the UK on February 14 next year, LEGO (AKA The Piece Of Resistance) freatures Ferrell, Chris Pratt, Morgan Freeman, Alison Brie, Nick Offerman, Liam Neeson and Elizabeth Banks on voice duties.
