Living Direct Goes Hollywood: Employee Video Contest Results

Last month our CEO, Rick Lundbom, organized an employee video contest at Living Direct. His objective was to get us thinking about the products we sell in creative ways.

The way the contest worked was everyone was divided into random teams of 3-4 persons, then each team selected a product to feature in a short video. Rick announced that the videos would premiere at the quarterly meeting in October and provided handheld video cameras to each team.

Teams had until October 30th to complete their video entries and post to YouTube.com. Cash prizes were offered for the following achievements:

  1. $1500 to the team video with the most YouTube hits
  2. $1000 to the team video voted the funniest

To add even more excitement to the event, the quarterly meeting was held at the nearby Alamo Drafthouse movie theater. It was an absolute blast watching these "films" on the big screen. And based on the amount of laughter, applause & camaraderie I witnessed, I would say the entire company enjoyed it. Kudos to our video winners, "The Unfaithful Kegerator" (funniest) and "Cruzin Cooler Joust" (most YouTube views).
