Thank you all for the support! I won! Look for my name in The Last of Us, coming out June 14th.

Please be sure to watch my other video, "Hunt it Down," at the following link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iBj768...
This is my second entry for the Firefly Pendant Contest for The Last of Us by Naughty Dog. I decided to go a different route with this one, with my last one being very clean cut and suspenseful. I wanted this to have a vibe of just complete chaos, disillusion, disorientation, and almost to the point where its impossible to understand. I used footage from BBC's segment on Cordyceps, along with game-play footage in the midst of all of the distortion to set up the connection between the fungus infecting the ants and the virus infecting the in-game humans. In the background in white noise, as well as Hank William's "Alone and Forsaken." This symbolizes the fate of the ant in the video, lonely and forsaken from the colony, as well as the fate of every human in The Last of Us. It's also more connection to previous Last of Us commercials and teasers since that's the song used in the Truck Ambush and Gamescon promo. As the infection of the cordyceps spreads in the ant, so does the frequency of distortion and the sound of the clickers. I hope you enjoy it, and rewatch it in order to find some more hidden connections and things of that sort.

Thank you Naughty Dog for all you have done with the Last of Us and Uncharted as well. I look forward to experiencing what you have created on June 14th, and would be extremely blessed to be featured in a game that I think will help define this generation of gaming.
