Idea Guy and friends enter create-your-own-commercial contest
Aaron Johnson of DoDatDen Productions, Eric Williams, writer/producer of Blue Arm Productions, and I (of...um... I really need to come up with a production company name!) spent Saturday down on the campus of The Ohio State University filming our entry for KFC.com's contest to produce a commercial about their new "Bigger and Better Popcorn Chicken."
With accompanying audio by Chuck Francis of Tunecom.com, we three amigos filmed a pretty good commercial in about 8 hours. AJ and I were in front of the camera and Eric acted as both director and cameraman to film our 30-second tour de force: "Tailgating."
Our two heroes tote in the tasty KFC to help enjoy the tailgating festivities and cheer on their favorite teams in the big game -- but just how "big" a game is it? With a little luck, you'll all be able to judge for yourself. If KFC chooses our entry as the winner, we'll be $10,000 richer and the commercial will air during primetime on October 2nd!
The deadline for entry is this Tuesday (the 23rd) -- if anyone else reading this has entered the contest, drop me a line and let me know. I also have the video archived on my website, so if you'd like a peek at the entry send me your email address and I'll forward the link.
Wish us luck!
