My Life is a Cartoon



Being an amateur visual designer, i had taken part in an online contest called "HP You on You" hosted by Hewlett Packard, where the contestants had to create a original video describing themselves, the duration of which is supposed to last for a minute! A major challenge was to express yourself without showing your face in the video!! Exciting huh? Other restrictions included using the media kit provided by HP i.e. the music, the banners etc. So in actual sense we had to create a video for under 55 seconds! Me along with my friend Ashwin Ganesh, worked on this video for close to 10 days so that we could meet the deadline set by the organisers...

But do you know what the funny and most cruel part is?? Due to a miscalculation of the US time (yes how dumb can we get), we submitted the video a day after the deadline :( You could imagine the frustration for both of us...All the hard work down the drain...the long hours into the night without any sleep...but no matter...i'm sure you all can appreciate it!! :)

But only if we had won...$25000 would have been ours. sigh :(

Anyway do not hesitate to leave a comment below! Cheers!

P.S Kindly excuse the horrid voice-over! It was a last minute addition!
