The Winners

April 2011
Contest: "OC Crazy!"
Deadline: May 3rd - extended!

For all those creative vidders who enjoy designing their own original characters, it’s your lucky month! For this contest, we are asking you to go OC crazy and create your own Lost character to insert in to the storyline of Lost. They can be anyone you want to be: an Oceanic 815 passenger, an Other, a Dharma Initiative worker, a family member or love interest of one of the existing characters…the possibilities are endless! The most important thing is to weave your original character in to the show and tell us what their story is Make sure that whatever exciting backstory you have planned for your character is directly linked to an event or moment in Lost, for example, if your character is another survivor they would have to be shown during some of the major events that happened on the island, such as the plane crash or the discovery of the hatch, etc. Likewise, if your character is a flashback character/family member of an existing Lostie, they would have to be present at a major event in that character’s life, for example, an OC as Charlie’s sister might be shown in the scene where Driveshaft first play on the radio, or when Liam’s daughter is born. Just make the link to Lost as clear as possible to make sure that your OC is a presented as a Lost OC!

You can use a Lost OC that you already have or you can make up a new one for the contest but we want you to introduce us to your Original Character so please do not “borrow” other people’s OCs for your video In the same way, try not to do a direct copy of someone else’s OC. We want to see your ideas and originality through your own creation You may feature more than one Lost OC in your vid but try to put the main focus on one or two so there is a clear and understandable story to follow. Casting is the fun part; you may choose anyone you think is best to play the role of your Original Character but please make sure they are non-Lost actors. There is no claiming system for this contest.

And just to get the flow of creativity going, we’d prefer if any videos you submit are brand new and not one that was made prior to this contest! We are really looking forward to seeing some fresh, new entries for this one! If you need any help/support with your ideas, you can always try asking for advice in The OC Discussion Thread and see if you can get inspired

Good luck and have fun! I can’t wait to meet your OCs!
