Generating over 10 million views on YouTube,
my "Viral" GoDaddy TV & Web Commercial has become their (& my) most notable film project to date.
Originally produced as a last minute shot in the dark, started during last two weeks of their Fall 2010 video contest; I ended up not winning any of $600k in cash prizes, but I'm proud of the crazy poetic justice in becoming the brand's most successful story (a satire fire) for brandvertainment ^_^
But oh, the story doesn't end there, for at the end of 2014 I was pleasantly surprised when GoDaddy reached out 'acquire' the video... Ironically or not, GoDaddy ultimately botched their attempt at a deal in the most embarrassingly bloody way.... So to make a long story short, after first age-restricting it in December 2014, YouTube ended up forcibly deleted it in March, allowing GoDaddy to IPO just a few weeks later... on April 1st of all dates!
Well the joke is on who failed to remember how justice always win the end, because if there was ever a story to tell through jokes, it is this. So ever since, negotiation strangeness presented like spin, I knew I had to share the story of this small but growing 'ordeal' by working on some crazy fun lore response videos to rip the hinges off their imaginary doors and spark their faults wit funny larks.
Two weeks back in college for fun did as it did, but this is what almost a year on revenge juice tastes like with tang mixed in. These companies bullying me into producing their 2hr movie to kick off my decade discipline drafted 4hr Web-Film-Fin... a 'Trilogy' of Legal FU ^_^
*** So what the F is coming after this Unimaginable prophecy film of yours? ***
After deferring school for year both in despise of traditional education systems and to explore an early idea for a technology venture (which although different from my present venture, definitely contributed to the methodology I am now employing for music video production), I ultimately decided to enroll at Babson College for top ranking specialty in entrepreneurship. So my long term goal has always been to disrupt the creative advertising industry. However, after experiencing the pain of pleasing corporate clients like GoDaddy, I realized that my true passion has always remained in music videos ever since the passion picked me as 13 year old gamer doing what I guess would now be seen as the MTV of Twitch.tv... With now over a decade of dedication to my art form, I make NO compromises with myself when it comes to capitalizing 100% in business and in creative control =P
So with receiving my BS in Business back in 2013 (oh how I love the puns), the last few years I've mostly dedicated myself towards my music video vision as leveraged under a unique technology platform for video production. It's hard to explain exactly wtf I've been brewing down in Dexter's Labratory, but most simply stereotyped: I building the Netflix of VEVO, by GoPro without the need for silly YouTube or Spotify deals to seal the danger in my reel... I will be making the music scene ^_^ that I see.
*** Client Consulting & Short Film Work possible for selective/synergistic clients ***
, I'm always getting distracted with various side projects for passion and profit. So feel free to inquire my about interest on your video project if you value my creative perspective. As my schedule permits, I'm willing to give pretty much anyone a free introductory call to consult on their initial concept development. From there if you would like additional consulting, or perhaps to contract me the project's production, we can discuss rates and payment terms further so long as I'm interested and available. I'm willing to travel if paid, but would prefer to stay within the Vegas/LA area as travel is very tiresome to me.
