FEBRUARY 2009
Contest: "Beat Use For My Valentine"
Deadline: March 3rd --- extended!!!!

The Details

When you think of Valentine's Day, you think of hearts and flowers, candies and chocolates, love and... beat use!

Yes, love and beat use are in the air for this month's contest and we want to see shipper vids that show off beat use at its finest! But we're not looking simply for vids with so many white flashes they're like a strobe light. We're looking for creative beat use! Clip-changes, effects that change on the beat, transitions, fades and motion in the clip itself are all fantastic ways to use the beat in a song. Check out Heather's awesome Beat Use Tutorial for more details! Remember, we're not so much looking for vids who hit every beat with a white flash but rather for vids who show us what the music is saying. Even a slow song can have beat use! (And yes, you may use white flashes. Just don't rely on them solely as the only form of beat use in the vid. )

So hone your beat use skills while giving us a story of epic love! You may use canon or AU ships, you may focus on one ship alone or on several, and you may use slow or fast songs as you see fit, just make sure to show off your creative beat use skills in the process!

Have fun sharing the (beat use) love!
