Godzillan gratitude!

The votes are in and the judges have (finally) spoken: with 2753 votes, my video placed 3rd out of 300-some-odd entries. For old time's sake, let's take one last look at this thing.

I was really pulling for second, and so was everyone I knew... and their mother... and their grandmother... and their friends on Facebook who I'd never even met. What I'm trying to say is, we put up one heck of a fight. Someone else just put up more of one. But third is nothing to be ashamed of! I had a great time making the video, I still won $250, and best of all, I've seen what a fabulous support system I have in my life. Take a look:

Parents will never leave their college-bound children home alone again after watching this! Hilarious.

I was all prepared to shrug but that was actually really funny!

Mandii, every time I go to vote it says I've already voted today!! For two of my e-mail addresses anyways


My parents voted more faithfully than I ever could have asked. My congregation, extended family, professors, friends, faithful blog readers, and even complete and utter strangers supported me beyond anything I could have dreamed. What an amazing gift. Thank you all!

I voted a bunch of times and I loved the video it was hilarious.

Congrats for even making third!

K a b l o o e y said...

Congrats! And you are now doing better than almost everyone I went to NYU grad film school with, because you are a filmmaker who made $$. Good on you, and it was funny. What's your next project?
