Hi! OK, as a fairly steady contest host, I can definitely help out in this way.

First of all, I'd like to do three rounds of First Impressions based off of Return of the Rings: Behind the Memories. Each one would be based off a first impression from watching the extras and documentaries from each movie. I can expound on that in time.

I'd be willing to take on an official contest too, though I'm still working on an idea for that.

I willl put you down for the unoffical conteest, but I will wait until you tell me your offical contest to put you down for that .

How do you all like the little labels?

I like them, Smeag. Very awesome. =)

Altariel- The First Impressions contests would be a terrific idea; I was going to contact you about that but haven't had the time. With that, it would probably help the entrants to have the screencaps from the commentaries Smeag and I have been finding. I plan on capping my own here pretty soon if I can manage it.

Aliana, I don't think having the screencaps, but just being given links to site with them. Because we really don't want it to turn into a screencap challenge.

Yes, I was already planning to put up links to the screencap sites which contestants can use if they want to. :) That just makes it easier for people.

That's what I was talking about. Sorry, bit scatter-brained today. I got the movies from my brother today and I'm downloading a capping program as soon as I can. I was planning on making a couple new photobuckets for my screencaps; I'll put the link here when I get everything up and running.

I had an idea: what if for an official contest I did an official RotR video contest? It could run for the first several weeks, and then there would be voting for the rest. The videos would have to be edited along the theme of behind the scenes, and memories. I could even do some research online to find good sites to download clips of LotR-related interviews and such. Is this a good idea? Bad? Feedback please?

I think that is an execellent idea. I just would like to make sure there are at least like 3 people that would be capable of it

I know for certain that Elven Archer makes videos, and I know ForeverFrodo has done it before, and if Elven got her two sisters (Kelenloth and Star Gazer) to do it because they both can... oh, come on, I know there are more than this... *goes to find something*

EDIT: Almost two years ago, when we did the official LotR video contest, Meganelf, Pandora, and pirateoftherings all did videos (I'm just listing the members still active). Also, I know Fencing Maiden can do them.

Alright, I will add you to the list.

I believe I can also, maybe, find a video program to do them.

Oh my I remember doing that video, I love making them and if I could find clips and such, I would be more than happy to make another one for a contest!

Post subject: 

Great idea. =) I'm planning on learning how to make videos here in the very near future, so I might just enter.
