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:
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!
