    Too bad abc provided the worst way to make a promo..I highly doubt the network will air a promo as choppy and random as those being made with their movie maker. On top of that, they don’t even provide greats clips :/

    ”We invite the entire ‘Lost’ fan community to play an active part in the series’ final season by participating in the ‘Ultimate Fan Promo Contest”

    Apparently people from Canada, or anywhere else outside of the USA, aren’t a part of the “ENTIRE ‘Lost’ fan community”

        I think you can edit a promo, you just can’t win. In the rules section it says: “Contest is only open to legal residents of the fifty (50) United States or the District of Columbia”
        I will probably just do one for fun anyway.

    There’s the link to the video my brother and I made. As you can see, not so choppy if you get it right. Vote for me.

      P.S. we titled the video, “Live Alone, Die Together.” I think it has an ironic sound to it and it goes well with the feel and emotion final season.

    I want to enter but Im not from America so I cannot win the prize. That doesn’t bother me I just want to see if I can win and get a promo on TV for millions to see.

    • Huge Action

      Having your promo shown on TV is part of the prize, and you can’t win if you don’t live in the USA. I want to enter too, maybe I can find some american to submit it for me?

  • Someone from told me to go look here for the dvds that they don’t have in stock, but it seems this isn’t the right site…would you happen to know if they perhaps meant some site that has a similar name to this one? Any help would be appreciated!

    Im wondering if anyone could help me ive submitted a video but how long is it supposed to take for them to “review it and see if it fits the criterea”?

    • D.L. Watson

      I’ve submitted my custom made trailer Wednesday night following their rules to the absolute “T”. As of 11:43pm on Friday night, its STILL has NOT been added to the pool. Mine is entitled “Destinies Fulfilled”.

      So, apparently, it takes a quite a long time to “approve” custom entries, or not to toot my own horn or anything, mine was “too good” for the contest.

      Lets just hope together its not a quality issue.
