Another Missed Opportunity

It looks like the Stockstock Film Festival came and went this year without me knowing about it. Which is a little sad because some of the stock footage they offer for editing was really good this year.

In case you didn't know the Stockstock Film Festival is a festival based around stock footage. They give potential film editors the same amount of stock footage and a certain amount of time. During this time, all the editors have to make a new film using only the existing footage.

The great thing about the website is that now it is all electronic - you download the stock footage instead of having it mailed to you and people can post their submissions on YouTube when all is said and done. They even have a film page dedicated to all entries.

My contribution to last year's contest was a short ditty called Hey Loser! One of the frustrating things about it was that I never got a chance to see the competition, so I didn't really know the criteria/judge's tastes. This year, I do. And I'm psyched about next year.

Here's this year's winner (it really takes off at the 30 second point - you can see some of the truly incredible footage from this year's contest):

Here's my Hey Loser! video from last year:

Now you can see who is the better editor. But I'm already getting ideas for next year. Just you wait.

Hee! I like yours way better. I think you should still make one with the clown footage.
