Afterglow

ABC News says that John Edwards’ “Hair” debate video generated the most hits on YouTube: more than 128,000.

While the piece gets high marks for irreverence, Hillary Clinton’s post gets favorable attention for its simplicity. (It has over 8,000 views). Her video came via an online Hillaryclinton.com contest, and it should come as little surprise that the winner was an aspiring filmmaker. He’s Zachary Goode, who now works at the Shoah Foundation at USC. Reached on Tuesday, Goode, 30, says that he didn’t know that he had the winning entry until he watched the debate from work.

“This is a filmmaker’s dream come true,” he says. Although the Chapman University graduate’s work hasn’t yet produced a film deal, he did get a crongratulatory call from Clinton on Tuesday afternoon. Shot on a Panasonic consumer camcorder, he says the idea just came to him to simply feature “cards with statistics of what these seven years had brought.” The music is “In the Hall of the Mountain King” from the opera “Peer Gynt.”

With over 15,000 hits was Barack Obama’s video, which the New York Times called the “most produced”; i.e. the most professional.
