If you want an example I think this contest is something like I did for Key (you'll find it in my signature).

You can do pretty much anything with this! ^_^ As long as your imagination will take you!

For example, you can make a PV, a CM, a movie trailer, an interview, a short fiction, an animation, or a short documentary. Any kind of video clip is okay as long as it involves Ayumi Hamasaki in some way and meets the other requirements listed in the first post.

5mins duration might b a bit of difficulty as most ayu's hit songs overshot 5mins. Maybe a 6mins duration would be better ^^"

AyuGAME 4th October 2011 01:18 PM

^thinking about it..you are right...
the duration need to be a little longer maybe around 6-7 minutes

isthisLOL? 4th October 2011 10:54 PM

Yeah the song I wanted to work with is longer :(

AHS Staff 5th October 2011 12:46 AM

Part of the challenge of this contest is editing and mixing your material to fit the time limit.

Aderianu 5th October 2011 11:10 AM

m... I have an idea.. not sure if I'll be able to do it %)

LONJJONG 5th October 2011 01:05 PM

Thanks for your answers MissElin & AHS Staff!
Sure I'll put some ideas on it!

millie47 5th October 2011 04:36 PM

I wish I could do these kind of stuff.... :scry the prize is pretty awesome...

isthisLOL? 5th October 2011 10:34 PM

So that pretty much means...we can't do music videos unless we take a short song or somehow remix it...ok, I'm out...I'm not gonna bastardize an Ayu song. My concept is a few seconds too long -.-
We ARE allowed to create our video from original video footage though, right? Cause then I could just cut off the last seconds of the song and let people use their imagination for the last part lol

MissElin_ 6th October 2011 10:12 AM

^Like Tim Gunn says it: "Make it work!"

Sometimes "making it work" means making it worse at the same time :/ Well...I'll have to deal with that. I chose a song that got some parts you could take away I think :)

kinix 9th October 2011 05:16 PM

will english songs be allowed for this contest? or will the download forum rules applies to this contest too?

Eewyi 9th October 2011 06:23 PM

Can it be something like this I have made before? :3
I mean, AMV which features ayu song? ^^

All times are GMT +1. The time now is 11:16 PM.
