MAY 2009
Contest: "And the story goes on..."
Deadline: June 3rd - extended


The Details:


Before story-tellers made videos, they wrote books. And these days our favourite novels are turning into blockbuster movies. So, this month we want the same thing -- but in vidding form. Pick a fictional book and re-tell the story with our losties! Any genre! Any book!

Also, you don't have to tell the whole story if you don't want to, telling just a part of it is alright too. For example, the final scene of Twilight Book 1 when Bella finds out it's not her mother that's in trouble. As long as you're re-telling a story or part of a story from a fictional book; you're in!

Now just because we're asking for a story, doesn't mean you have to make an audio filled video. There are more than plenty of videos on LVI that tell stories without or with little audio. However if you want to, you can, no worries! We're just saying it's not a requirement.

Have fun!!!

-The more creative, the better. Don't be afraid to take risks.

General Contest Rules:

-Contest submissions should be entered through the Submit page.
