Chicken Vs Penguin Video Wins $100,000 in Nikon Festival

A 2006 graduate of the University of Texas Austin is the $100,000 winner of the Nikon Festival to celebrate video creation using the DSLR.

Marko Slavnic’s entry, “Chicken vs. Penguin,” shows a funny, physical story of unexpected love brought to life through a fast food mascot rivalry between a boy and girl. It was shot over two days on Congress Street in Austin, TX.

“So many people see filmmaking as this elite thing and that you need a big crew to produce a quality film,” said Marko. “I was excited when a friend told me about the Festival, and Nikon has shown people that you don’t have to be a professional to create a film and be seen by a huge audience.”
