Enter the Boys Before Flowers giveaway and contest!

 
Raise your hand if you like giveaways! And parodies. And clever fan videos. (And Kim Joon and Kim Bum.)

In response to all those Boys Before Flowers parody videos, reader saharial volunteered to put up an OST prize for our own contest for best fan-made parody video.

I thought that sounded like a lot of fun, so I’m matching her offer and putting up another OST prize. Why let Korean netizens have all the fun with their Simpsons spoofs and fake “Requiem” movie trailers?

The top two entries will win a free CD of the soundtrack.

First place will win an additional drama poster. (The OST comes with 7 photo cards and a red F4 card. The poster looks like this.)

 
RULES

In making your parody video:

  1. All clips must be from Boys Before Flowers.
  2. You may use any music you wish except from the drama OST.
    (Sorry — if I hear almost paaaaaaradiiiiise any more than I must, I may have to hurt something.)
  3. Submissions must be no more than 4 minutes long.

 
Multiple submissions okay.

 
JUDGING CRITERIA

Three judges — saharial, Sevenses, and myself — will determine the winner based on the following.

Each category is worth up to 10 points:

  1. Suitability and choice of music
  2. Suitability of clips used
  3. Overall impression
  4. Originality
  5. Editing skills

 

DEADLINE

Send submissions to info@dramabeans.com by Friday, February 20, at 9 p.m. PST.

(That’s midnight EST. Or, Saturday at 5 a.m. in London; or 1 p.m. in Manila; or 2 p.m. in Seoul; or 4 p.m. in Sydney — and you get the point.)

Winners will be announced the following Monday, February 23.

Happy spoofing, everyone!

tlina069: The easier program to use is probably windows movie maker. Try looking at this site for help. http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/moviemaker/default.mspx

tlina069, Windows Movie Maker is free, but it has a lot of problems. I used it to make my video, and it was really frustrating and I almost gave up. But there's a guy on youtube that helps people with it. I don't think i could have done it without him. So if you guys are using movie maker and are having trouble(I almost guarantee you will run into some trouble), here's his channel. http://www.youtube.com/user/BetaFlux

Look at all of his videos, and if that doesn't help, just friend him, and send him a message. He always replies back and does what he can to help. Good luck guys!!

seriously. when i heard the instrumental version of almost paah-raaaa-diiiiise i laughed so hard. but credits to woo bin. i thought he had a shining moment there. hahaha, attack!!!!

about the parody video... like most people who made comments, i too don't know the first thing about making a video- can't even edit a picture if my life (or my grades. ehehe) depended on it.

so go boybeforeflowers anonymous peeps! is it just me or does anybody feel like they're attending an AA or any secret meeting when reading or participating in anything and everything BBF. Hi my name is... and i'm a boys before flowers-holic :)

Thanks to dunlop @ 15 ! I learn how to edit video by Windows Movie Maker now. But I'm not good enough to join this contest though ( and I put a word 'paradise' in the clip, Javabeans may piss me off, ha ha! Just kidding!) So I want to show dunlop the result from his/her kindness. Here's the 1st clip I ever made: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jGEKWH1dJFg

Stupid question, but if the contest closes on Friday, does that mean we have until the end of Friday to turn them in, or we only have until midnight tonight?
