Dear creators, we know you’ve been waiting for so long and we finally have the winners of “Minute Maid Pulpy” contest!
We would like to thank you for your patience, great work and participation in this creative challenge.
So, let’s have a look on our winners! In italics you will find some comments from them:
First prize of 15,000 EUR goes to Clipclaper (from France)
Second prize of 9,000 EUR goes to teddiefilms (from the USA)
One night I had a dream. It was about a site that allows you to make commercials and win money. When I awoke, I went to eYeka.com and found what I was looking for. It’s a good way to build your commercial reel while possibly earning some money. Also, contests allow us more creative freedom and control. And it has improved my love life by 42%. We primarily work as a duo, like Batman and Robin. Except none of us really wants to be Robin. So imagine two Batmen. But we also have a team of close friends that we lean upon to do what we do. In general we like to do ads that are quirky and humorous and the Minute Maid Pulpy contest seemed perfect for our brand of humor. It also had a higher prize than most of the other contests.
Usually, a messenger of Zeus appears to us and tells us what to do. Sometimes though, we just make it up as we go. And every now and then, we actually have brainstorming meetings, write proper scripts, storyboard, and rehearse. We mostly get our inspiration from other people’s misfortunes. Just kidding. If you can’t tell by now, we joke around a lot.
Third prize of 6,000 EUR goes to noahk (from the USA)
I found out about eYeka while searching for contests online. As a recent film school graduate, contests are a great way to gain experience and knowledge, along with the potential monetary gain – which is always a plus. I co-produced this commercial with Jeff Bloom, a very talented cinematographer, and together we wrote, shot, edited, and did the effects for the commercial. We came up with the story while brainstorming concepts that we though would show the product in a fun and quirky way. We were worried the idea might have been a bit too crazy, but it seems to have paid off!
Congratulations to the winners and once again thanks to you all for your participation. We are very sorry for this delay!
P.S. We should apologize as we can’t publish the winning entries due to the confidential nature of this contest. Thank you for your understanding!
