The annual THAC competition from brickfilms.com works as follows:
You have to make a stop motion animation film fitting a given title, containing not less than 30 seconds of animation, and each frame must contain a mod element, and everything within 24 hours. THAC = Twenty four Hour Animation Contest. And this was the third one ever made. The title was „what really happened“ and the mod element was the letter „K“ and/or a green brick next to a black brick.
Fortunately Jory Schossau (REU student from our lab) was able to join the production team. He composed and arranged all the cool music – also within 24h! Thank you!
and you know what, we made 9th place among 32 competitors! And we had an appearance in Wall Street Journal!
