Let's Hope They're Better Than Sharon and Fred

A couple years ago, on a whim, Gabriel entered a video contest and won a shitload of money and a trip around the world. (That's how he and Donovan are fortunate enough to be travelling and shooting a movie right now.)

Duly inspired, last year I entered my first (and only) video contest and won $5,000, which I blew on male go-go dancers. (Hey, 5,000 one-dollar bills disappear quick in the heat of a lap dance.)

When Jake was applying to be my new friend a few months ago (yes, there's a long and involved application process), I encouraged him to think about video contests. Well, not only have he and Will collectively won $7,250 and an electric meat smoker (I'm not kidding) by entering video contests, they have decided that they are going to finance a feature film exclusively with contest winnings.

So they have started a blog to detail their adventures, Jake & Will: Video Contest Warriors, which also covers topics of interest to filmmakers and the like. Here they are, explaining themselves:



This is their blog URL. Help them out by voting for their stuff anytime they enter a new contest.

(In case you don't remember Sharon and Fred, go here for perhaps the funniest video you will ever see in your entire goddamn life.)
