blog_banner (5) When was the last time when you did something for the first time? All of you did a great job sending us amazing entries for Coca-Cola contest and today we are happy to announce the winners! Coca-Cola love your entries so much that they took longer time to select the winners among all these great entries. Now it’s time to check up our three winners, you can see comment from Coca-Cola and some words from the happy winners: First Prize of EUR 24,000 goes to dreamcatcher (USA) with 100 First Times "Very Teen/YA, great source of content, fresh production"
I am a director for "Freakin Rad Films" an independent online video production company. We've worked on dozens of fun independent videos for our own YouTube channel "FreakinRad" as well as many other videos for clients and online video contests. I've personally been working in the documentary world for over a decade, but also enjoy sci-fi, fantasy and action adventure fiction work. We are putting together a feature film in 2014 that takes place in the near future. Filmmaking and storytelling are my passion and I felt so honored to be able to represent Coca-cola with my work.
Second Prize of EUR 6,000 goes to Marcs (Spain) with There is always somethings to do for the first time "Very touching and emotional, very Coca-Cola!"
We were enthusiastic about the idea of taking part in a worldwide contest for such a famous brand. It was a great challenge for a small team like us but we trusted our idea and wanted to make it real. It was exciting to help someone to do something for the first time and watch and capture his impressions and feelings so closely. We had lot of fun with the protagonist and it was a huge satisfaction for us making one of his dreams come true. It was just a gift. We lived and enjoyed a nice story, but we also made our work true and we are very happy and proud of it.
Third Prize of EUR 3,000 goes to cistudios (USA) with Joy of Coca-Cola "Nice story!"
We were really excited to do this ad. As its kind of a person story to me. Me and my brothers did this when were growing up. Coke bottles always make the perfect bottle rocket holders :) this was one of my earliest childhood memories. Film-making is always best when it is done with a team, and we were really excited to produce this spot and have fun while doing it. We are always looking on Eyeka for fun and challenging spots to create and this one was a great fit. We always create media with a good story. That is always the first thing. Story is king. Everything else is secondary and that is our film making approach. :) We are so excited to take 3rd place :)
Congratulation to the winners! And thank you everyone for participating. It was great to see so many amazing videos :)
