Hey Vid Pro Peeps. Got some cool information to pass on. I just found out that a contest with a sizable prize ($10,000.00) has only three weeks to go in the submissions period (Feb. 28th 2010 sub. deadline), and the cool tidbit is there are less than 10 viable submissions. I won’t tell you how I found out but trust me it is def. insider info. ha ha ha. Also, because of my production schedule, yours truly won’t be entering. I wouldn’t be broadcasting this info if I was submitting coz I would prefer to score this kind of payday myself, but I just can’t make time to submit. This is going to be a nice win for anyone to takes the time to do a little research. I found out a lot about Macular degeneration today during an hour long google search and frankly I think I might have the early stages of the most common type of ‘Dry’ macular degeneration.
This disease will effect more people than you may realize in your lifetime and there’s a good chance you might know someone who suffers from it if not your very self. Hit the logo and check it out. This contest sort of went under the radar, I think because it’s not a cool snack chip or soda pop contest, but win or lose, it would make a great directors reel piece showing versatility as a director. Good luck minions and happy filming.
SIDE NOTE: Before publishing this blog post I tried to get the administrator to commit to a NO SUBMISSION DEADLINE EXTENSION promise. She is going to check with corporate HQ tomorrow (Feb. 2nd) and will email me with the info she receives. I will update this post if they decide to extend. If they do, as usual, I would suggest against submitting to the contest.
UPDATE: Just got word from the Vice President of Global Relations for AMD: The submission deadline will not be extended. Great news. You have got about three weeks to get it together. I wish I could enter. I would so try and steal this money from ya’ll.
