Time’s up on the LEGO Ideas 21325 Medieval Blacksmith brickfilm contest

The LEGO Ideas team has wrapped production on its brickfilming contest, and will now head into the editing booth to choose three lucky winners.

The competition called on budding directors to get behind the camera for a brickfilm based on the recently-released 21325 Medieval Blacksmith, with some seriously cool prizes up for grabs – including classic (and long-retired) LEGO Kingdoms sets.

Each entry only needed to be somewhere between five and 30 seconds long, so you didn’t need to be the Scorsese of the brickfilming world to take part. That mercifully low barrier to entry saw an impressive 336 clips make the cut, so whittling them down to just three won’t be easy.

That responsibility now lies on the shoulders of the LEGO Ideas design team, who’ll pick out a grand prize winner and two runners-up based on the platform’s usual criteria of detail, relevance, originality and the best use of LEGO elements.

The judging period will last until March 23, before the LEGO Ideas team announces the winners on April 2. First place will take home 21325 Medieval Blacksmith, 21322 Pirates of Barracuda Bay and 10223 Kingdoms Joust, while second and third place will bag the Blacksmith, 92177 Ship in a Bottle, 40448 Vintage Car and either 7952 Kingdoms Advent Calendar or 3841 Minotaurus.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
