Andrew Campbell of North Charleston, S.C., made an animated video showing the process from ordering Zenni glasses to receiving them in a warm, inviting, and entertaining 28 seconds. “From start to finish, this video took about 25 hours spread over the course of about a week. I had to motivate myself to make it the best it could possibly be, regardless of how long it took,” Campbell said.
Getting to know our winners:
Zenni: Did you write, direct, and perform in the video?
Andrew: I was the writer, director, illustrator, and animator of my video. As I was on a bit of a budget, I was also the narrator.
Zenni: How long did the shoot take?
Andrew: From start to finish, this video took about 25 hours spread over the course of about a week. The only challenge I faced while making my video was myself. Since I created this entirely on my own, I really had to motivate myself to make it the best it could possibly be, regardless of how long it took.
Zenni: How long have you been doing animation?
Andrew: I started animating only a couple years ago when I took some classes about the technical aspects, as well as design principles.
Zenni: Do you have any heroes in animation?
Andrew: I really admire Seth MacFarlane and Matt Groening. Their writing is top-notch.
Zenni: How many pairs of Zenni glasses do you own?
Andrew: To be honest, I don’t personally own any Zenni glasses, but I have a few close friends that swear they are the best.
Zenni: What other hobbies do you have besides filmmaking?
Andrew: Some other hobbies of mine, besides filmmaking, are cooking, running, and playing guitar.
Zenni: What will you do with the prize money?
Andrew: The money I win will go toward paying student loans (recent film grad, here). Ah, what the heck, I might put some toward a video editing computer.
