February 2010
Contest: "It's Smile Time"
Deadline: March 5th - extended!

The Details:

We've all been utterly heartbroken and brought to tears in the past five years of Lost, but we've also seen some truly happy and joyous moments on and off the island. And this month, that's what we'd like to see: a recap of the happiest moments of the last five years of the show.

You can choose to stick to one character's happy moments, your favorite ship or an ensemble. You don't have to include every moment, but moments that made you happy to see as a viewer over the past five years. You can choose to stick to the happy moments of just season 1, seasons 3 and 5, or all 5 seasons if you choose! It's up to you where the happiness comes from. We want to be see those joyful moments that remind us why we love this show so much (Note, as that this is a recap from the previous five seasons, please do not use any season 6 footage. )

So have fun, and be happy!

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

• - Make a video about the happy moments from any or all of the last 5 seasons of Lost. No season 6 footage please.

February contests are the only ones I ever seem to enter, and this definitely seems like something fun and interesting to edit so I'll try and whip up something for this! It's also been far too long since my last Lost vid.

Is it strictly 'the island' or can we use flashforwards as well?

Can we use bloopers in our vids? This sounds fun--and I've had a fun song in mind to vid the show too so this gives me a reason to do just that.

Hey Brooke! Your answer is in the main post itself:

Also, in case you might've missed it, be sure to check out our new contest information!

Good luck! Can't wait to see what you come up with!

Oops, crossposted you, Tammy!

If you haven't seen it already, be sure to check out our new contest information! If we don't specifically say to use something or not use something, then it's up to your discretion as to what will help you make the best vid you possibly can to fit the contest!

Looking forward to your vid as well! You can't have too many fun vids, IMO!

Hey Ais. I took a look at the new contest information, but I still have to ask since I'm considering entering this (we'll see, haha).

Can we show a sad moment that morphed into a happy one? Not like an all out tear scene, but if someone was like kinda bummed out and then another Lostie made them feel better and it turned into a happy moment?

Does that make any sense? Lol.

Hey Jourdan! Always so great to see you!

Anyway, to answer your question, you can totally do your vid anyway that fits the contest in your opinion. All you've got to do is keep in mind that we're asking for a recap of the happy moments from s1 - 5, so however it feels best for you to get your vid there, then that's up to you!

I hope you'll enter! It seems like it's been a looooong time since we've seen a vid from you!

Lol, thanks Ais! No matter how long I'm away you always make me feel welcome *passes you a plate of cookies--frosted cookies!*

I know, I really do want to vid again! I've been thinking about it a lot lately! A contest seems like a perfect excuse to get back into it, so I'm going to try my best to enter--I can't promise anything, BUT I can promise I'll try, haha

Aw, we're always glad to have you back whenever you have time! \o/ And yay, frosted cookies! \o/ *accepts gratefully and happily nomnomnoms*

Contests are great for helping to sort of get the muse back in the groove again! Hopefully yours will fall right in line and help you (as opposed to those times when I've had to drag mine kicking and screaming along with me )! ♥!
