SEPTEMBER 2007
Contest: LVI goes to the movies!
Deadline: October 8th
-- extended

The Details

The idea behind this month's contest is to showcase instrumental film scores and 'story-telling' ability. Many of us rely on lyrics when we choose which clips to add to our video but one of the most important things is the overall story of the video in terms of a beginning, a middle AND an end. You can have as many 'spot on' lyrics as you want but it might not make sense in the wider aspect of the flow of of the video. We make it easier for you by allowing you to portray a scene or story from one of your favourite movies using only Lost clips from the show. You will also be able to use the movie's audio clips and the titles (credits and opening titles.) No video footage is allowed to be used from the movie you have chosen.

We would advise you not to adopt the trailer format as you are only limited to instrumental scores and many trailers feature original songs. It is also easy to forget to focus on the storytelling aspect of this contest and just make a cool but random trailer.

So go shoot your movie!

The Rules

Specific Contest Rules:

-Vidders can choose to have music or not for their video but if they use music it must be from the film score of the film they are portraying and be purely instrumental, no lyrics.
-No video footage allowed from the movie apart from opening titles, credits and audio clips.
-The more creative, the better. Don't be afraid to take risks.
-Running time should be no longer than 5 minutes. We suggest the 3 - 5 minute range.
-When entering your video on the Submit page, you MUST enter "September 2007 contest submission" exactly in your vid's Description.

General Contest Rules:

-Contest submissions should be entered through the Submit page
-All regular submissions Rules apply.
-Only one entry per vidder
-Videos already submitted and RELEVANT can be submitted again, but we would rather see something fresh. (Please contact a CM if you wish to enter a previously-submitted video)
-Please do not use Megaupload, Rapidshare or Yousendit to host your files.
-Keep in mind that however you choose to host your video, it must be available for download at least until the end of the month. If we can not access your video at the time of judgment it will not be considered.
