The Brickfilmer's Guild
Welcome to the Brickfilmer's Guild (BFG). We are an online community created to spotlight and connect those that practice the art of brickfilming. Brickfilmers are the people that make animated films using plastic bulding bricks, such as Lego or Mega-Bloks. The BFG is designed to showcase brickfilming animators, producers, voice actors, editors, and promoters from around the world. Brickfilming is a hobby for most, but it is a profession for a few. Many find it is a small source of revenue. In brickfilming production, there is usually only one or a very small group of people that preform the jobs of producer, writer, director, actor, casting director, animator, set designer, set constructor, lighting director, director of photography, editor, special effects artist, and promoter. The brickfilmers that do all the above the best find the most success.
We also try to deliver the most up to date brickfilming news. We search the internet looking for news being made by brickfilmers and report it here. Check out the Brickfilmer's Guild: Administrator blog for the latest brickfilming news. Also check out BrickAnimation.com for the best in brickfilm blogging.
A member of the BFG can design and customize their own virtual space among fellow brickfilmers that are famous, soon to be famous, or just novice brickfilming hobbiest. A member's profile can include embeded videos (from YouTube and other video sites), a gallery of pictures (great for production pictures and mocs), Twitter feeds and much more including Blogs, the Wire (and site wide micro blog), and a Chat Room.
This site is meant to compliment brickfilming sites such as Bricksinmotion and Brickfilms.com. Please create a profile here if you brickfilm, even you are a member of those sites. We also encourage members of Brickboard (the German online brickfilming community) and members of Brick-À-Brack (the French brickfilming community) to join the guild and create profiles.
We currenlty have over 800 members.

One the same day ReBrick replied to a tweet from Bionicle28 with:
@bionicle28 It's a tough decision! We hope to have a final announcement shortly.
Earlier today (June 22) ReBrick tweeted:
The link goes to a short blog that apologizes for the delay. The blog mentioned the number of high quality videos submitted into the competition. The blog asks for patience and to expect an announcement later this week. I agree that most all of the 25 semifinalist were high quality. I can see how difficult the decision will be. Good luck.
