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:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZkO6DGYmqTA
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R9vIE_XAn5s

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!

- Make a video based around ONE scene from Lost that you consider epic. Though clips from other eps are allowed, the focus should be ONE epic scene.
- NO non-Lost footage, AU, Crossovers or Trailers.
- Running time should be no longer than 3 minutes. Most scenes don't generally run over the 2/3 minute mark. For this contest we suggest the 2 - 3 minute range. The focus should be on the ONE scene.
-The more creative, the better. Don't be afraid to take risks.
-When entering your video on the Submit page, you MUST enter "June 2010 contest submission" exactly in your vid's description.

General Contest Rules:

-Contest submissions should be entered through the Submit page.
-All regular submissions rules apply.
-Only one entry per vidder.
-Videos already submitted and RELEVANT can be submitted again, but we would rather see something fresh. (Please contact a CM if you wish to enter a previously-submitted video)
-Please do not use Megaupload, Rapidshare or Yousendit as your only link to host your files.
-Keep in mind that however you choose to host your video, it must be available for viewing at least until the end of the contest. If we can not access your video at the time of judgment it will not be considered.
-Have fun!

Yay! I'm so excited for this contest I know everyone is going to come up with some amazing vids!

I'm going to claim the alternate universe scene of Charlie talking to Desmond about his vision of Claire while he was unconscious. Let's call it the "i knew her, we were together" scene lol

I don't know how I'm going to vid it when I can't seem to watch it without turning into a sobbing mess but can I claim Jate's goodbye scene from the finale?

Because it might actually make me get that video to 'The Shallows' done (though I don't have the best track record with successfully completing videos done for contests)...

Sayid revives! @ Pool of Questionable Healing Abilities, pretty please. It's not massively epic on its own but I have something planned for it that will make it so (Julia knows.)

Can't promise I'll get it done since I start my real law-type job next Monday and am not sure what it will be like. If anyone is interested in it towards the end of the month, and it's been taken by two people, please drop me a line and I'll let you know where I am/if I'm entering.

Thanks!

Btw, I love your new PB&J art, Kat, even though Aaron is all slimey! Was I the only one who thought he looked like he was trying to escape in that scene?

Of course he was! Charlie was always supposed to be his daddy. He was definitely cuter than last time! Especially his cry!

Just out of curiosity, even though you said it's up to us to make our own judgement calls about what we think is epic, do you guys still get the final say?

Like, for example, if someone said the most epic scene of Lost to them was when Sun showed Walt how to make toothpaste back in season one and they wanted to vid it for the contest, would you allow it?
