Post subject:  >Official RotR Video Contest<


Welcome to the Official Return of the Rings: Beyond the Movies Video Contest! The basic idea is to make a video along the theme of "behind the scenes" and/or "memories". You can make a traditional music-fanvid, or one with some music and clips of people talking… as always, be creative! The current plan is to judge the videos based on voting.

I know it can be hard to find clips, especially for behind the scenes stuff, which is what this contest is primarily focused on. So I spent a little while searching to see what I could find. The most helpful resource I found was actually an Orlando Bloom forum where multiple members had uploaded LotR-related videos to a site you can download from. Here are links to the best threads: ... try3209085 ... try3195958 ... try3208636

Also, our very own Arwen-Undomiel has some good clips up:

Some of us (myself included) have DVD rippers or capturers, and if any of you have those you are more than welcome to use them. These links should save all of us time though (or at least that was my idea in researching them).

Official Rules
- The video must contain no material, whether in the music or the clips of actors talking, that has any rating above PG. Please keep it family-friendly! [Of course things like battle scenes from LotR are allowed, but no language or inappropriate implications]
- The video cannot exceed 10 minutes, and should be longer than 1 minute.
- The video must follow the given theme.
- The video must be uploaded to a video hosting site that makes it viewable for the rest of us (photobucket, tinypic, youtube, and putfile are all good upload sites)

- I have no definite deadline yet. Basically once I have three or more entries.

- Pandora
- lady_E

Good luck to all! Be sure to reserve your spot so I know how many videos to expect. :)

There is definitely a chance of making it longer. In fact, I believe I will make the deadline indefinite for now. :)
