Ellis Paul

Aug 27 2010 - And the Winner is...

Hey folks!

Just a quick note to announce... the Video Contest winners!

If you haven't caught the contest description over the past few months, we put out a call to arms to all of you and your video making friends to come up with a video using any song off the new album, "The Day After Everything Changed", with prizes for the best three videos.

We weren't disappointed!  Take a look at our winners -


Tied in First Place!

VIDEO KRISTINA - "The Day After Everything Changed"  and JASONGWYNN - "Once Upon A Summertime"!

For their mutual win, we are combining the prize money from first and second place and splitting it - each winner will receive $650, as well as 3 pairs of tickets to any 3 Ellis Paul shows of their choice, and an Ellis Paul Prize Pack with some extra goodies.

3rd Place: BOUNCING RED BALL - "Heaven's Wherever You Are"!

For the 3rd place win, Bouncing Red Ball will receive $200, a pair of tickets to an Ellis show of their choice, and an additional EP treat.

The film work for the three winners above was undeniably exceptional.  At the end of the day, however, there were some truly amazing videos Ellis didn't want to overlook... so he chose some additional Special Award categories!

The winners include:

Best Animation: "Dragonfly" - TheJRT9999

Best Special Effects: "Paper Dolls" - HimuraSora

Best Actor/Actress: "Once Upon A Summertime" - JasonGwnn

Best Ensemble: "Walking after Midnight" - Soniabgreen

Best use of Text/Visual cues: "Rose Tattoo" - JoeCollege7

Thanks to all who participated and helped make this contest such a success.  Keep an eye out for future contests, and more Ellis news just around the corner!

Speaking of just around the corner... for those of you in Maine and New Hampshire, Ellis will be performing at the Kennebunk Coffeehouse in Kennebunk, ME on Friday, followed by a special Family show on Saturday before he cruises over to the Great Waters Festival in Wolfeboro, NH.  (Full show details on Ellis' Tour page.)
