UPDATE 2013/05/28 - Well I didn't make it to the finals, but I just wanted to say thank you for everyone who voted for my video. It was a fun contest to be part of. Congrats to the five finalists! You can follow the rest of the contest here:

Original post follows:

It was little over three weeks ago that I came across a posting on a Facebook page about an editing contest. "Editing contest?" I thought to myself. "I am an editor, and I enjoy contests. Mayhaps I should investigate this further."

The Exposure Editing Contest has a simple premise - they shot a music video for a band, put the footage online, and let editors from all over the world download it and put together their own version of the music video in hopes that their edit be chosen and granted the "official music video" title.

Needless to say, I couldn't resist.

The best part? That band is question is Dear Rouge, and the song "Thinking About You" is pretty darn fantastic. (Both their EP's are great. Check them out at the end of this post.)

So, after an all night edit session — or as I like to call them, "the best kind of edit session" — I was finished with my edit and I promptly uploaded it to the contest. Here it is:

Which brings us to now - the contest part.

The top 3 vote-getters in the contest make it to the finals, along with 2 wildcard selections chosen by the band. Right now my video sits in ninth, so I need your help.

There are two ways you can vote:

1) You can click this link:

2) If you have a Vimeo account (or feel inclined to make one) you can click the little heart icon in the top right of the video player to "like" the video. This counts as a vote.

And if you really like the video, you can do both!

Voting closes this Sunday, May 26th, at 11:59:59pm. That means only four more days to get those votes in!
