Contest: "Back To Basics"
Deadline: August 31
Fan vids have turned into a true art form, with all of the beautiful effects & transitions that are now available. So for this month's contest, we're going back to the basics of vidding! We want to see some no-frills videos, with the main focus being the storyline. There are many ways to make a video interesting without relying on effects, coloring, etc, such as good beat use, and of course, song choice!
Speaking of song choice, in honor of the late King of Pop, we want everyone to use Michael Jackson songs! There are MANY to choose, all with great lyrics to get your story across.
We will be using a Claiming System for this contest. The same song may only be used by two vidders.
Here is a list of Michael Jackson songs, along with lyrics:
