We thought they were gonna just go ahead and do it themselves, but Sam’s DV camera got eaten by a herd of angry possums, so no dice. That’s good news for you, though, you amateur animator, filmmaker, or member of the general film/video industry! The band’s website implores you to "submit clips of any length made by you. This can be just short animations or video/film either with sound or set to “Dirty Lives” off Laughter’s Fifth." If you haven’t heard that jam yet, by the way, check HERE!The band further explains that “if you’d like to choose another Love as Laughter song, that is alright as well. All the submissions will be screened and if anyone comes up with whole videos that rule, they will be used. They will be credited and when/if a DVD of the work becomes a commercial product, they will recieve a protion of the proceeds. Shorter portions that are used will also recieve credit and proceed portions, only smaller. We are looking for artistic/original sumbissions, not America’s Funniest Videos—although if you deem it submittable, so be it.” Make sense so far, buddy? Do you have a pen and pencil? Grab one, and write down this next part: The band asks that "All submissions, in DVD format ONLY (no tapes or film or mpeg) should be sent along with your full contact information to:Love as Laughter Video Drivec/o Megan JasperSub Pop RecordsP.O.
