Wow! What a past few weeks these have been. For those of you that do not know, in short, I won the grand prize in Nintendo's "Pitch for Wii U" contest! I truly hate to sound like I am bragging but you have no idea how excited I am! The rules were fairly simple, create a one minute long video "pitching" Nintendo's latest video game system, the Wii U. Basically make an advertisement for the console. Unfortunately, I found out about this contest the day of the deadline and had roughly three hours to film, edit and submit my entry. That's how fast-paced all of this has been and it was surely worth it.
So your probably asking, "what did you win in the grand prize!?". The grand prize for "The Pitch" contest includes a Wii U bundle pack along with a trip to Los Angeles to witness the filming of this commercial. Yes, that means the idea behind the commercial I entered will be the new marketing campaign for the Wii U! That's why I have been so excited lately. As the Wii U struggles to succeed, I now have a chance to help out the company who made my childhood (and even present day life) so memorable.
The cat has been out of the bag for quite sometime now and for those that did not know, I'd like to say that it is official. Thinking about it still, its been surreal to think I actually WON a contest...I never won anything. Let alone all of this happening with one of my favorite companies. I absolutely hate to brag about things but I have never been more grateful for anything in my life. Whenever someone gives me an opportunity to prove myself, it truly means the world. If you want to see more, take a look at the articles below to some of the websites I've been featured on. This is truly only just the beginning of an incredible journey.
