Our first try didn't work - so we're taking a different approach.
Last year, Fast Company ran a competition called "Drive Your Business Forward." The prize was a customized Mercedes Benz Sprinter van. To enter, businesses were invited to submit a video explaining why they deserved the van. At the time, we were at the very outset of trying to figure out the National Tour and having an awesome van to drive around in would have been very helpful - so we created an entry.
Sadly, while we were named a finalist, we did not win. Two days ago, however, our Director of Education Lindsay Levkoff approached our videographer Gregg and said Fast Company was sponsoring another competition, but the entry date was May 1st. Could we get a video done in time to enter? Well, we thought we'd give it a shot...albeit with a slightly different approach. Check it out:
As it turns out, Fast Company made a mistake in their communication to Lindsay and the date for entry is actually May 31st, not May 1st. But, we kind of like our entertaining, although slightly weird, effort featuring SparkFun graphic designer Nic. What do you say? Worth a shot? We think so.
