Almost 1.5 years ago, I had an encounter with Chipster, actually, lots of Chipsters! Perhaps the following picture might explain a lot more than I could. However, I was not-very-narrowly beaten by another guy who walked away with the MacBook in the competition! Hmph
yes, there’s alot of Chipsters here
At the same time, I wrote another entry titled Lord of Chipsters for the same contest in a different category. It was a comic style story that was
pirated inspired by JRR Tolkien’s famous trilogy. Well, I didn’t win that one either, but here’s another picture for you.
Hohoho lord of Chipsters!
But as they say, third time is the charm, so this time around I am really keeping my fingers crossed with the latest Chipster contest I joined. Chipster SuperStar Contest!
First of all, lets look at the prizes:
- Grand Prize: MacBook Air x 1
- First Prize (x3): iPod Touch
- Consolaton Prize (x16): iPod Nano
Furthermore, the grand prize and first prize winners will be featured in the finale movie on TV3, that’s national TV by the way! Winners will be determined by number of votes, so please please go to the website and cast your vote. If you think mine is pretty good, VOTE FOR ME please.
Chipster SuperStar’s very awesome movie making interface
Unlike most other contests involving creations of TVC/movies, Chipster has really made it very simple to participate. The interface is so good I must say I am very very impressed (speaking from a guy with IT background).
All you have to do is upload pictures of yourself and your friends and crop them with the supplied online tool to create your casts. Next you choose the story you want your cast to appear in (4 to choose from), add in the actors from your cast list, and then come up with the dialogues in comic style, and you are done with the TVC.
The whole process takes less than 15 minutes, very sleek, very efficient!
The only thing left to do is to click the submit button when youâ€™re done, and key in the Unique Code you can find in every bag of Promotional Chipster Superstar Contest Pack. Hereâ€™s my Matrix inspired TVC (well since I just went to the hair saloon). Check it out!
The contest runs from 13th April – 8th June, and the voting period starts from tomorrow, 9-19 June. Time to vote, make it happen!
p/s: ok maybe there *might* be some better videos out there, do check them out and cast your votes.
