Mr Brightside my last thesis film at Chapman University is almost wrapped! This shoot has been challenging and extremely fun to shoot.

There is only 1 day left before the final voting for the winner of the Fuelfreedom.org video contest is announced. This video was only posted less then 1 week ago and it has about 1500 views. This video was a challenge in a lot of ways such as working with dogs and having no budget. We also only had a couple days to shoot and edit before it was due. This video and the other video submissions is a great example of how you can make powerful informative commercials with little to no budget and time.
Thanks for everyones help sharing and voting for my commercial. I really appreciate the support...
