FXWARS Challenge:35 -BRICKWARS - MAIN THREAD

CLICK ON THIS THREAD:Post here those who are looking for partners/teams


BRICKWARS

THE CHALLENGE:

Render a simulation of toy bricks.
That is it.

The entry with the best SIMULATION will be selected by an open vote. The winner will get bragging rights and a small banner designed by me.


DATELINE:

July 16 12:00 PM
(You have ONE MONTH & WEEKS to do the challenge.)

TYPES OF ENTRY:
You may do one of these types of entries:
Total Collapse Animation

  • This is the type of entry that would be used to explain the precise dynamics of a model constructed using the toy bricks.
Forensic Animation
  • This is the type of entry that would be used to explain the precise dynamics of toy bricks falling. Imagine you have been sub contracted by the History Channel to explain precisely how falling objects works.
Freeform Entry
  • You may use the provided models (and models you submit) to create an entry. The core requirement for this type of entry is to have fun.
But keep in mind the key thing that I expect to see in all entries is accurate SIMULATIONS .


CHALLENGE SPECIFIC RULES:

  • No work taken DIRECTLY from an existing tutorial. You may use an existing tutorial only for reference.
  • You may use a pre existing model(or use any of the models provived) , as long as you give credit to the creator. If you cant model, use simple shapes, since we are interested in the simulation. (But teams are encouraged, and if you are a modeler, you can make your model available)
Voting:
The best single shot/sequence will be selected by an open vote.


  • BEST SIMULATION
The winner will get bragging rights and a small banner
designed by me.
