Posted:I made a video for the brylcreem "effortless" competition (win money and be in their next ad by doing something effortless and cool, different from my COL entry) so i thought id stick it up here as well. Its only short but i like it, see what you think.

UCOF, that would've been acceptable had that guy remembered the lyrics (maybe not), not even good enough to watch on mute! spank

Posted:drops shouldn't even be an issue.

Concentrating on what your doing: not effortless.

Looking at what your doing: probably cos your concentrating: not effortless. Concentration face: not effortless.

Moving your body fast (or at all) in order to complete a trick: not effortless.

Trying to look good while doing a trick: check the word 'trying' in that sentence: not effortless.

standing in one spot doing a trick: why are you just standing there? If it was effortless, why aren't you doing something else are the same time?



manu laude should really know better... Le sigh.

Normal day? How many times do those guys go back and forth from your house in a normal day without actually going anywhere? Actually I don't think Thomas actually leaves the house...!

Still ubblove though... biggrin

Posted:Sweet, id actually nearly forgotten about this competition what with all the festivals we have been practicing for (not the least of which being Play in ohh 24 hours!)

Meg that video rocks, if it had been entered, i dont think i would stand a chance, as is i still dont recon i'll get anywhere, they seem to be more bothered about a few of the animation videos that got submitted. Not exactly effortless skills since i know (from experience) how long it takes to put together an animation. Still, the advertising world will go with whatever is most popularat the time, i'm not expecting to win but its nice people liked my video and there's still a chance.
