Mica’s video in a contest

Many of you will already be familiar with the fact that my brother Mica makes movies. You can see a collection of them on his website, as well as search for them on Google video.

Additionally, he is presently competing in an online film contest. His video for “Walk Idiot Walk” by The Hives is in the rock category of the ‘Google Idol’ competition (not affiliated with Google Inc.). He has already made it into the final eight. Apparently, anyone who wishes to can vote. I very much encourage everyone to have a look; you can also leave him comments.

For those not familiar with any of his videos, I endorse the following particularly:

[Update: 20 May 2006] Mica’s video won the quarter-final round, with 1,061 votes to 234. I can’t find a link to the semi-final round yet, but when I do I will put it here.

In the spring of 2005, I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in International Relations and a general focus in the area of environmental politics. In the fall of 2005, I began reading for an M.Phil in IR at Wadham College, Oxford. Outside school, I am very interested in photography, writing, and the outdoors. I am writing this blog to keep in touch with friends and family around the world, provide a more personal view of graduate student life in Oxford, and pass on some lessons I've learned here.

    Based on the schedule, I am guessing they didn’t have enough submissions to begin with. As a result, they could only run six out of the eight heats they should have run in the quarter final. Those six are over, and now they are running to more to fill out the roster for the semi-final.

    Since the beginning, heats 7 and 8 have just been question marks. Now they appear on the rock category front page. Once voting on them ends, in a week, I presume the semi-final will begin.

    This definitely wasn’t the best way for the organizers to run the competition, but I suppose they need to work with what they get.
