    Well it's a little foolish to not provide airfare and accommodations. By basically limiting it to the wealthy (i.e. people can afford the tickets) or people within France, they're cutting out a HUGE percentage of potentially great entries. Most people don't have airfare for France just lying around.

    I really hope LP/WB decides to pay for airfare and accomodations for this contest. It would make this contest explode in popularity.

    Seems like it could be fun...but I'm not going to spend time doing it. Too busy and no way I'll have time to go in the first place

    From what I understand by reading the T&C, you have to reside in France to enter.

    Personally I could care less about this. Even if It was international. No amateur can top the real thing in 90 seconds.

    I guess they should start hoping that there are some budding French Video Makers out there who have some free time. :lol:

    I have quite a lot of ideas for it, but I can't make it happen...I was thinking of a Ghost Recon, Rainbow Six Vegas set, where soldiers are trying to save the hostages (aka. the band) and while they are running through the empty streets you can see on high displays, broken tv's the guys singing etc. - in the meanwhile the band tries to escape, then the soldiers shoot (slow motion + moh clip style) and then when lift me up, let me go comes there is a huge bomb exploding (more a waterbomb, atombomb) where first everything is been pushed away by the massive pression and then there is a bright light coming closer and filling the whole screen and everyone and everything vaporizes... bla bla bla.


    well I live in france, I have the french nationality and we have a house down there (government still believes my mother lives in there) but lol, im going to their concerts on the 26.10, 27.10 and 29.10...that would be too much (I highly doubt I would win either)

    anyway I wanna see some entries really soon :)
