Filmmakers need not attend the convention to enter.
Festival judges include David Pagano, founder of Paganomation, an award-winning production studio whose work has been seen on LEGO.com, Nickelodeon, ABC News, The Wall Street Journal, and BrickJournal magazine. Winners in six categories will announced August 9, 2014 during the Bricks by the Bay convention.
David Pagano will also be the keynote speaker for this summer’s Bricks by the Bay convention. “This is my first trip out to BBTB, and I’m psyched to get to meet some LEGO fans from the opposite coast,” said Pagano.
Bricks by the Bay is a convention for LEGO® artists, enthusiasts, hobbyists, and fans and will be held August 7-10, 2014 at the Santa Clara Convention Center, in Santa Clara, California.
