January 2010

Contest: “Season 6 Character Promo”      Deadline: January 31st

The Winners



The Others (Oooohhhh) In no particular order


January 2010
Contest: “Season 6 Character Promo”
Deadline: February 1st - - extended!

The Details:

As the final season premiere approaches we’re all dying to know what’s going to happen to our favourite characters. So, in order to get us even more excited, this month we’re asking you to make a promo for one of the characters in season 6! We’ve all seen those promo’s that ABC have been putting out, and well, let’s be honest, they suck compared to some of the ones our LVIers have made in the past! So, why don’t we show them how it’s done?!

Your task is to show us what you think your favourite character will be getting up to in season six. That means we’re looking for PU (possible universe) ideas, rather than totally-out-there AU ones this month. Tease us with what you think might actually happen on the show! Will Kate be caught for her crime? Does Claire change her mind about giving Aaron away? Did Jack’s plan to reset time even work?

We’d prefer it not be a traditional music video but to be done in a trailer format and have the feel of being an official season 6 character promo. You may use title cards if you wish, but it is not necessary to do so. You can also use footage of the Losties in their other roles, if needed.

Although we know it’s inevitable that promos for some characters will show their relationships with other characters, we’re asking you to keep the focus of the vid on one, specific character. We’re not looking for a shipper promo this month.

We will also be using a Claiming System this month, with THREE vidders per character. You can make a promo for any of the character’s shown on the official season 6 poster (we know that there are a number of posters out there showing different character lineups, but we'll be using the confirmed, official version.) So make sure to let us know which character you'll be choosing!

…And most importantly, have fun!! We’re really looking forward to seeing what you guys come up with

Edited January 8th to add:

Because of an unavoidable problem, the January contest information is not available on the main site yet. If you didn't realize this contest was in progress and so you're arriving after the character you wanted to claim has already received the maximum number of claims, please let us know and we'll allow you to go ahead and claim that character. Please note that if you have already claimed a character, this doesn't mean that you can go ahead and claim a maxed-out character. This is just applying to people who didn't know about the contest because of the problem with the main site.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused and appreciate your understanding!
