The Winners

June 2010
Contest: E.P.I.C.
Deadline: July 3rd - extended!

Please be sure to check all of the rules, including the maximum run time (3 minutes), before you submit your vid. If you need to re-edit and re-submit your contest vid before the deadline, please contact a CM and we'll be glad to help you!

The Details:

So that's it! No more Lost!

*sobs and cries with everyone*

To ease the pain; we bring you a contest.

At one time or another, every Lost fan has watched a scene and thought "That.was.epic." Whether it be Charlie's death scene, Alex's murder, or Jack and Kate's proposal; whatever it might be! Lost is one of those shows that has provided vidders with so many epic scenes; and that's what we want to see this month: one of your favourite Epic Scenes. One of those scenes you remember long after the episode is over, memorize the quote and plaster it all over some fabulous fanart.

Pick ONE EPIC SCENE (must be canon) from Lost and show us why, in your mind, that scene is so epic. You can use footage from other episodes to get the epic point across, but the main focus should be on that ONE epic scene. For example, if you were to use the Jate proposal as your epic scene, you can use clips of them on the island/flashforward/etc interspersed with the proposal to show just how important, and therefore epic, that moment is.

We know what makes a scene "epic" to one person might mean something different to another; hence the challenge. Show us why you think that scene is so epic to you. To be clear; the scene must be canon from the show. We are not asking you to invent your own epic scene.

As for scenes that run together in a montage sense (like Aaron's birth with Boone's death) we would consider that to be one scene as they were montaged together by the show; that would be okay for the contest. But, something like using Charlie and Claire's first kiss run together with us first discovering Desmond in the Hatch would not be. They're both epic scenes but they have nothing to do with the other and they weren't montaged together by the show.

You can use an instrumental song with lots of dialogue, or a non-instrumental song with hardly any/no dialogue; whatever you want! Use whatever you need to to show us why that scene is so epic to you.

Here are some examples to show you what we're looking for:

We will also be using a claiming system for this contest, since we don't want 5 vids to the same scene or something. So TWO vidders per scene

Have loads of fun!

Be sure to read our new contest information for help with questions you may have!
