YAAAYYY!! Our little secret project is complete and ready for public viewing!!
So, about a month ago Daniel and I had this really great, inspiring conversation on the ride home from his hometown while the boys slept peacefully in the backseat. We were dreaming about where our creativity could take us and how sweet it would be to work on projects together. We thought it'd be super fun to try our hand at a music video using my illustrations and his new animation skillz. I specifically mentioned Owl City's song "Vanilla Twilight" because the lyrics and music are so sweet, I hadn't seen a music video for that song yet, and I know firsthand the heartsick feeling of being away from your love for a long period of time (Daniel and I spent a year in separate countries while we were dating/engaged)
So I was pumped to find out last week that the folks at Owl City were holding a "Vanilla Twilight Fan Video" contest. PERFECT!!! So even though it meant working several laaaaate nights, we did it! Of course I wish we had three weeks to work on it rather than three days but I'm super happy with the results!
So check it out!! Owl City folks will pick 10 finalists, the public will vote for the winner, and the grand prize is airfare, hotel, and tickets to any Owl City show in the country. I will be sure to let you know later this week if we make it to the finals so you can vote!
Even if we don't win, it's been totally worth it. The past three nights of flirting over video chat while we worked on the project in separate rooms of the apartment have been really sweet. And I think this contest has been the kick in the rear we needed to start working more together. So thanks, Owl City : )
Lots planned today! Have a good one!!
