Studio Update: New Film, Vacation: Unlimited Contest Ends, and More

By: Andrew Bermudez (Lego Studios; June 14, 2012)      Summer vacation has arrived, which brings us to another studio update! Today, we have a new film, the end of a contest, the future of Vacation: Unlimited, and more. Let's get started!      After some time, the school project Night Guard has now been released with some adjustments. If you wish to see the original cut shown in class, it's available to watch on Vimeo under the name Andrew Bermudez, Night Guard, 1:46. "We are glad that this humorous film has now been released," said LEGO Studios CEO Mark Matthew. "We really want to show it off to the world. While it's not long, it is still very funny."      In other news, the long-hyped Vacation: Unlimited contest ends tonight at 11:59 PDT with only one entry submitted.

By: Andrew Bermudez (Lego Studios; June 1, 2012)      After its 8-month development, the revolutionary brickfilm Gone Ice Fishin' has been released! "Unfortunately," lamented Lego Studios CEO Mark Matthew, "due to unforeseen issues, Night Guard has been delayed until further notice. We're now aiming for June 8th, but that date is not set in stone." Fortunately, this now means that more time can be spent promoting this otherwise neglected film.      After the debut of Gone Ice Fishin', a brand-new film was announced. This new film is titled Late for the Soccer Game. Based on the LEGO Sports sets and created for Bricksinmotion.com's Kitchen Sink contest, this film centers around Peter Whitman, the team captain for the soccer team Hot Shots. However, he's late for the big match and needs to get to the soccer stadium in a hurry! How will he get there? "That's for the audience to decide," said scriptwriter Peter Samuel. "The film …
