A New York State of Mind, and Penguin vs. Chicken

I went looking for some information about setting up a literary magazine type site online and stumbled across this Nikon Festival where entries seek to tell the story of Your Day in 140 seconds or less. Top prize from the judges was $100,000; the audience award was for $25,000. The audience picked A New York State of Mind, while the judges picked Penguin vs. Chicken. You'll get a kick out of the story of the chicken/penguin conflict. As the creator of it says, "We all have our share of bad jobs as teenagers. This was mine."

Thanks for posting this. Great stuff! I fried chicken at a deli as a teenager, and I have to admit.. I found myself rooting for that poor chicken in the video. Until the surprise twist, of course. ;)
So, I would like to know...is there a video of Your Day in progress? If not, what things would you be sure to capture in those 140 seconds?

My day? Walter, wood, food, school, blah blah blah.

Not much going on there. I wish there was. More guitar, more poetry.

What about yours?
