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!

Spoiler:
We had such a nice time. We started dating in t2m PV, took it slow you know, let our love grow. Then it got really serious in 2008. Then after AT2009 we moved in together. It was lovely. Then on AT2010 he asked me to marry him. He was such a sweet. And Ayu gave us our blessings. She was also such a sweet. Now me and Maro are such a sweets together. Aaaw, how time flies.

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 ^^"

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

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
