Although… I’ve been contemplating these contests lately. They get thousands of people to make commercials for them, and the makers of the commercials get tens (if not hundreds) of thousands of people to watch the commercials! They don’t care about getting a high-quality commercial, it’s all about getting the brand out!
What you should do after you’ve watched Portraits:
Did you watch it? Only read further after you’ve watched it.
Not bad, amirite? (If you disagree, feel free to disregard the rest of this post.)
Now you can vote on Portraits. (You might notice that you can only vote on a film after you have watched it while logged in.) There’s a little button on the lower-left of the video player. Use that to get to the voting page.
Now, uh… watch and vote upon the rest of the films. I realize this is kind of a tall order. But, see, the more films you watch, the more your votes count. And these are finalists—they’re going to be high quality. I’m making a night of it and watching ‘em all (http://www.thedoorpost.com/2009/FinalFilms/) this evening. I hope you do too.
We want it to get as many “hits” (to use the parlance of the interwebs) so that they’ll hire Untucked (yes, it is another Untucked Films project) to make more! So please take a look, and if you find it to be suitably funny, SHOW YOUR FRIENDS AND TELL THEM TO PASS IT ON OR YOU WILL NOT BE THEIR FRIEND ANY MORE.
