I have done the video with almost no budget and with very cheap equipment. If you like it please give me a like or thumbs up. Thank you and i hope not to bother anyone.

    I can not believe it. Neither the winner or the runner up were between the ten most voted. WOOOW!! The runner up even presentend the documentary the 2nd of february. Right now they have 1595 likes for the runner up and 2378 likes for the winner. I really thouht that it would be more ethics. The one with less likes in the top ten had more than 3000 likes. I am really disapointed. This is a real master class of how the film industry works. Any thoughts?

  • You can expect just about any video competition to be unwinnable. Not exactly surprising.

  • I am not surprised that the competition was rigged. I'm not that naive. What i'm surprised is that nobody cares. Not a single person want explanations. Now i question every single time that i have read the Bloom's ethics statement. Is that a bias blog? Is Sony an ethical brand?. I supose i'm just a morron with integrity in a world where nobody cares. Congratulations to Mr. Bloom I hope he has a magnificent life with his Thirty pieces of silver.

    Well, participate in our competitions :-) Not rigged.

    More people - more competitions, more stuff. But for now trend is reverse.

  • Sony has admited that there has been a mistake. The winner and the runner up even not being in the top ten will retain their prizes. Later will publish a new shorlist to pass to philip bloom. After all the comments i have made in differnt places and all the emails i have send to Sony europe i imagine its imposible for me to win or being the runner up. Frist rule of competitions - don't agravate the judge. But at least it would be some sort of justice and i hope two of the other nine get their prizes. In real life the one who complains always get punished. That's life.
