Fuel Freedom Foundation announces video competition winners
The Fuel Freedom Foundation has announced the winners of its first college video competition. The winning films are short segments produced by Chapman University Dodge College of Film and Media Arts students, and illustrate the severity of our nation’s oil addition, and the urgency to develop cheaper, cleaner, domestic replacements. Ethanol is mentioned in all three winning videos. According to information released by the Fuel Freedom Foundation, the winners of this competition will be eligible to complete in a national video contest for college students. Plans to hold competitions for the general public are also in the works.
"These highly talented young artists have created powerful visual statements that show why we must open the transportation fuel market to competition from alternatives to gasoline, such as natural gas, ethanol and methanol," said Eyal Aronoff, co-founder of the nonprofit, nonpartisan Fuel Freedom Foundation. "We want to use all forms of media to spread the word, including high-quality, creative videos that will become viral and create an impact on the internet."
The $5,000 grant prize for this contest was awarded to Jacob Taylor for a video titled “Fuel Freedom Campaign.” Two runners-up each won a $2,500 prize, including Ryan Broombergy for a video titled “Funny Dog Commercial for Fuel Freedom,” and Brandon Wade for a video titled “Oil Makes the Myths Remix.”
