I am 1 of 10 finalist in the Porsche/Reelz Channel “My Daily Magic” Film contest! Over the last couple weeks I have been busy writing, shooting, directing and editing my 90 second submission. Our entry, “Sweet Dreams” (above) was shot in 24 hours, all over San Antonio, with a Porsche provided Panamera S for 48 hrs.
Public voting begins today, Sept. 12, 2011! I encourage you to jump on over to www.mydailymagic.com, view the 10 finalist entries, and vote for your favorite. Voting is now CLOSED. Thank you so much for your support, they should be announcing the winner soon!
Contest Finalist shall (a) create a second, new and original video shot in HD, not to exceed 90 seconds and no larger than 100 MB that highlights Porsche’s new tagline: “Engineered for magic. Everyday”, including incorporation of their personal experience driving/utilizing a Porsche.
I’d like to especially thank my cast and crew who worked tirelessly under the scorching Texas sun and did a heck of a job!
