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 building bricks, such as Lego, Mega-Bloks, OYO Sportstoys, KRE-O, K'Nex, and a few others.
BFG Social Media:
The BFG is designed to showcase and connect 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 also 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 The Set Bump 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), and much more including Blogs, the Wire (a 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 900 members.
Check out the Links and Featured Members page of this site. It has an extensive brickfilming links section as well as a list of some of the world's best brickfimers. Friend them on this site, subscribe to them on YouTube, and follow them on Twitter.
If you are under the age of 14 please read the "Terms" at the bottom of this page.
