An Unusual but VERY EXCITING Giveaway!

First, I haven't done a giveaway in a looooong time.

And!

Second, for those of you who don't know what I do for a living to pay for my triathlon drug addiction, I make animated movies. More specifically I put hair, fur, feathers, leaves, and grass onto digital animated characters, trees, and landscapes. Wha? You ask? Yes, I am a professional pet groomer and lawn mower......on the computer.

Well! Our next movie, "Rio" is coming out in less than 6 weeks on April 15th!!!! So exciting!!!


So as part of the gigantic marketing machine to spread the word of this movie to make it sell lots and lots of movie tickets, I am going to do my part on this blog.

For starters, I am going to give away a signed official "Rio" movie poster, signed by the entire Blue Sky Studios Fur Department!



Yep, we are the bestest department in this entire company! Speaking of our company, ever see any of the "Ice Age" movies? That is us as well!

My role on the film was to figure out how to groom all of the birds efficiently AND I got the honor of grooming the feathers and fur onto Blu (voiced by Jesse Eisenberg) and Jewel (voiced by Anne Hathaway), the two main bird characters in the movie. It was an 18 month long project to groom just the two birds! Tedious work you ask? Yeppers! But it was worth it as they came out VERY beautiful in the end.

So you wanna win this awesome signed poster? Its easy! Leave me a comment saying you want it!

Want a better chance of winning it? Head on over to Rio's official Facebook page and "Like" the movie. Lemme know you liked it via a second comment....

Want an even better chance of winning it? Spread the word! Post this on your blog or twitter and lemme know you did via a third comment.

Want an even better better chance of winning it? Become a follower! (look over to the right--------)

So four chances to win this signed official "Rio" poster. How much better can it get?!?! I am leaving the entry open until Friday March 18th.

The movie is spectacular! Hope you go see it on APRIL 15th! Look for my name, Jon Campbell, in the credits under the Fur Department. Thanks!
