I’m officially endorsing Brent Weischsel in the ANCESTOR User Generator Video Contest

For those of you who aren’t familiar with the UGV contest sponsored by Crown Publishing for Scott Sigler’s ANCESTOR release, you can get the details here: http://www.scottsigler.com/videocontest.

To me, “Jian’s Dream” is far and away the best script. Don’t get me wrong, there are some great videos that use the other scripts. Some are high quality, others are simply original and entertaining. I still smile every time I recall #8, Coxbrother’s sock puppet masterpiece. Within all of the “Jian’s Dream” videos, there are two that really stand out:

#5 by Brent Weischnel and #24 by Tyler Short.

I met Brent at Balticon this year and he’s a really cool guy. I have no idea who Tyler Short is and he’s smoking everyone else right now in view counts as it is. That’s the way this contest works. Each unique URL that watches one of the contestants videos all the way to end gives them a vote. The videos which have the most votes on July 7th will enter the finals. They will be viewed (and judged) by video industry professionals and the winners will be announced July 14th.

Brent is currently at #5, but the creator at #6 is very close in view count. Please watch Brent’s video if you have not already done so. He needs every view he can get. Thank You!

    Thank you for blogging about the video! I fucking love that I’m your choice for the contest. I haven’t watched the other videos so I can only go off what other people are saying about the video.

    Were getting closer and closer to the final days of the contest. Just gotta keep the views coming in.
