Update on my attempt:
Talk about last minute! Went to meet the group that was supposed to be involved in the shoot on Thursday evening. Two of the "actors" decided at the last minute not to show. One even turned his cell phone off.
This was an exterior shoot so I was stressing about 6 pm. We found two guys at the local coffeehouse to take their place and went to the location and shot for an hour.
We should have had an auxilliary camera rolling as "the making of..." was far more hilarious than the finished product. KFC took about 20 minutes getting the necessary Popcorn Chicken for us, Geez!
Rough edit was done by my partner at about 2 am. Complete with cgi nugget. (The thread did not work too well).
Finished sweetening last night and overnighted it today.
I'll update later if anyone is interested.

yep. Just finished it. It is on a CD and am sending it in today.

It didn't take to long and was fun. I tried to talk some friends into it but they weren't really into doing their own. Even though I help do one of theirs. To bad. The nice thing about this contest is that you don't really have anything to loose. 30 sec is so quick that it only took 20mins to shoot and then awhile longer to edit.

Good luck, Rob! I'm sure we've got a lot of heavy competition though. But it was a lot of fun. Also a great lesson in what not to do next time!

Yah that's true. It would be great if they had a contest hotline. To which they run all the contest through. That way I would of had more time with it.

Would that be legal as they now own the finished product in its entirety?

well given that you did it. I am sure you can post it. The main thing is that we wait until the contest is over as not to cause a problem. Once the contest is over I'll be more than happy to show the commercial.

Jim - All companies can show their work in a demo reel of work. Even though they do not own the work.
