September 2009

Contest: An Episode To Remember      Deadline: September 30

The Winners



The Others (Oooohhhh) In no particular order


September 2009
Contest: "An Episode To Remember"
Deadline: October 2nd - extended!

The Details:

Episodic vids (vids that focus only on one episode of the show) can be a particular challenge, since we vidders tend to be used to having multiple seasons worth of episodes to build our vids from. But they can also result in vids that explore hidden depths in an episode that we may not have noticed before.

That's what we want to see for this month's contest! You can focus on the on-Island story, the story in the flashback or flashforward in the episode or a mix, however you choose. Also, if you want to focus on the story for the character who is centric to that episode or on the "b-story" with the other characters or a mix of both, that's also acceptable. In short, if it happens in that episode, you can make a vid about it!

Please do not use footage from any other episode, from any other tv show or movie the actors have been in, nor even from the recap at the beginning of the episode or the sneak peek at the end. Use only the episode itself.

Also, as that episodic vids deal with what actually occurred in that episode, then no AUs, please.

We will be using a Claiming System for this contest. The same episode may only be used by two vidders.

Also please note that we're defining "episodic" to mean a 1 hour episode. So for things like the multiple part finales or the two-part pilot episode, for example, you'll need to claim a specific part, (something like "Pilot, part 1" or "The Incident, part 2") and not use more than the 1 hour episode for your vid.
