WINNERS in the b-roll.net COMMERCIAL Contest

Congratulations to our two winners in the latest b-roll.net CONTEST. This entertaining contest had a simple concept – write and produce a :30-1:00 commercial for b-roll.net. The videos were posted, and the you voted.

AND THE WINNER IS…

Richard Adkins of WRAL in Raleigh, NC

This is a very impressive reproduction of the actual b-roll.net HQ – complete with grinding iron and random body parts.  I didn’t know anyone was aware of our body part smuggling operation.

For his efforts, Richard wins an in-truck camera cage from ENGcage ($850 value).

CONGRATULATIONS RICHARD!

SECOND PLACE – by a close margin – GOES TO…

Stephen Press of New Zealand

I laughed at the awkward jokes for the entire minute of this clip. Stephen Press did some stunning acting research in creating this character, and with this effort, he definitely retains the right to the title “Cameragod.”

The folks at ProSourceBMI will be sending Stephen a brand-new VOCAS Matte Box ($600 value).

CONGRATULATIONS STEPHEN!

Many thanks go to our sponsors – ProSourceBMI and ENGcage. Also, thanks to YOU for participating and voting. We couldn’t do these contests without you.
