Before we get to the winnner, I wanted to re-share the awesome email we got from Michael Brown productions, they had 2 really cool Corvette spots that almost made it. Michael is the producer of the QUEST documentary too!
His video’s after the comments from Michael, another video sent to us via facebook and the winner…and bummer it had nothing to do with Corvette. CURIOUS TO YOUR FEEDBACK AND COMMENTS ( email link at bottom of page!)
Thanks for posting my two Corvette commercials…’Start Something Special’…and …’It Takes A Chevy’. I appreciate your doing that and for spreading the word. Wish we’d made it to the finals, but we’re still having fun with them.
You may be aware…Chevrolet has been conducting a worldwide contest…inviting everyone and anyone to produce a Chevy commercial(s) and enter them for a chance to have the winner air during the Super Bowl in February.
So, I wrote a couple of Corvette commercials and my crew and a 9-man entourage trailored my newest Corvette (2012 Centennial ZR1, VIN#100) and my oldest, a black ‘54, to West Texas.
We took them 300 miles to the Texas panhandle and shot a couple of Chevy commercials. We got ’shortlisted’ to the next round of judging, but alas, didn’t make the cut to the final 35. I knew there wouldn’t be many spots, if any, involving Corvettes, so I took these two out of my collection in Texas (www.hookedonvettes.com) and used them in the spots.
Naturally, I wish we’d gone further in the competition, but even though they were a lot of work, we also had a lot of fun making them. The ‘cowboy’ in ‘It Takes A Chevy’ is my son, Ryan, an actor living in NYC. The ‘Sheriff’ is a long-time accountant/friend who grew up in Shamrock, Texas, where the spots were filmed.
The incredible gas station used in the ‘Start Something Special’ spot, is an 80 year old Art Deco classic building that is located on the original Route 66. It is now the Chamber of Commerce building. Though it is no longer an active gas station, the pumps are still in place, so we were able to ‘transform the building’ easily to make it look real. The ’sleeping station attendant’ is a professional actor I hired after conducting an online audition search.
And by the way, the building appears prominently in both ‘Cars’ animated films from Pixar.
So now, we’d just like to share the spots online and see how far they can go. We welcome comments!
Thanks again, Rick…Happy New Year!
Regards, Michael Brown -Producer/Director”
