Mica’s video in a contest


in Films and movies

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.

Let’s not get complacent.

Are you B’s older sibling?

That Farbod video really is exceedingly strange.

I have been voting for his video from ten computers a day.

Good. Keep it up. Especially once more competitive rounds begin.

Re: 20 May Update

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.
