TLD10: The Longest Day – Series Recap and the Big Reveal

February 10, 2009

Twenty-four photographers. Twenty-four hours. Two teams. But there can be only ONE winner.

It’s been a long journey for our “heroes,” but I’m finally proud to present “The Longest Day Big Reveal.” In this finale episode, we recap everything that has led us up to this point. Then, we reveal the teams’ videos.


Every week we pick a name from those who left comments on a “Longest Day” episode to win a free Triple Scoop Music song (a $60 value). This week, I’ve decided to pick THREE WINNERS. And they are Jasmine Marie of San Diego, CA; Riz Crescini or Norfolk, VA (or Japan), and Michelle Kane of Sheridan, Wyoming. Congratulations!


It’s official, we will be producing a DVD set of the series which will include all the episodes, the team videos, deleted scenes, and a bonus feature: the photographer’s summit meeting held the following morning.  Please take a moment to leave a comment about the show in iTunes, and at the end of the 10-episode run, we’ll conduct a drawing for FIVE free Triple Scoop Music songs from those who’ve left comments in the iTunes store. (That’s five people will each win a song). In addition, one lucky winner will win a the GRAND PRIZEClick here to access the show’s iTunes page.

Congratulations to Team A for their win. Their long hours of deliberation paid off. Thirst Relif will earn $3,000 as a result of their win. But don’t feel bad for the other team’s charity. Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep is a “winner” too. They will receive $2,000.

    You guys are all great. Team A of course came from behind to rock it! 🙂

  6. February 10, 2009 at 3:22 pm

    Great project, can’t wait to see who wins. See ya in Vegas!

  7. February 10, 2009 at 3:24 pm

    This has to be the greatest idea…not just their ideas, but your’s Ron to do this with them…It’s been awesome following this long longest adventure!

  8. February 10, 2009 at 3:40 pm

    hahaha… this is so funny!!! I think both of the teams were fantastic!!!!! BUT… I have to give it to team b 🙂

    No Question…….. Team “A”

    Great job with this whole series! Team A was good, but I think Team B stole the show!

  12. February 10, 2009 at 4:46 pm

    Holy Kubota! Team A came back from behind to win it all!

  13. DJ
    February 10, 2009 at 4:54 pm

    man alive… both a pretty awful… but team A’s was definitely much better. team B’s was just embarrassing!

  14. February 10, 2009 at 5:20 pm

    Team B… much better and totally awesome !!!

  15. Logan
    February 10, 2009 at 5:43 pm

    Although Team A struggled to get started, they came back with a hilarious video. Sorry B Team… maybe next season.

  16. February 10, 2009 at 7:10 pm

    Ron – you are so awesome for putting this together. Win or lose, both teams did a great job and brought lots of spirit to the table. I love being part of a community full of people who give back to the world!

  17. February 10, 2009 at 7:15 pm

    Team A clearly struggled, as did their comedy. Team B gave us intelligent cerebral satire of the highest order. And sooo effortlessly! 🙂

    If Dane’s team doesn’t win this, it would be a travesty! We’re voting for the best short film, right? Great job, Ron, for putting together this competition.

  19. February 10, 2009 at 8:03 pm

    I think both teams did really well and worked hard for a great couse! Great job you guys! I loved the video!

  20. February 10, 2009 at 8:34 pm

    very funny

  21. February 10, 2009 at 9:35 pm

    Oh David, as Team B’s EDITOR, I can see you’re not biased AT ALL. With all the trash talk Team B is doing about Team A, I’d say they are a little bit worried about the outcome!


  22. February 10, 2009 at 10:14 pm

    Foto Freaks…gotta be Foto Freaks!

  23. February 11, 2009 at 1:58 am

    I was a little worried about Team A getting rolling–and I LOVED the vintage camera idea–I think you should do something with that Jules! My vote is for Team A!

  24. February 11, 2009 at 2:14 am

    I was pulling for Team A since day one and you did NOT let me down!
    Excellent video with witty satire. Love the ‘Fast Crack Photographer’ spoof weaved throughout & the *amazing* Kubota actions!

    Your PSA was very heartfelt and profound. Team B did a great job with their PSA as well.

    You guys all rock for doing this.

  25. February 11, 2009 at 12:11 pm

    Team A!! Wow, so many funny pieces: not to spoil it, but the Colon spoof was hilarious and Dane’s book, gotta get me one of those for wedding planners

    Holy Kubota! Where’s the scene where Kevin gets beat up in the alley?!! Was that cut out? Great job everyone… but my vote is for “Late Night”.

  27. February 11, 2009 at 6:18 pm

    I had so much fun watching all the episodes!
    It was hard to pick- both videos turned out great. Unfortunately I wont be at WPPI this year so I’m going to miss the great award night show 😦
    I’ll stay tuned to find out who wins.

  28. February 11, 2009 at 6:25 pm

    Two good videos, but I had to go with A. Both charities are winners! Hey, can we see the horror footage sometime?!

  29. February 11, 2009 at 9:14 pm

    Thanks to everyone involved; great series. I made my vote already but I really enjoyed both videos. See y’all in Vegas!

  30. February 11, 2009 at 10:33 pm

    Such a tough choice!

  31. February 11, 2009 at 11:04 pm

    Thank you, Courtney! I loved that idea, too.

  32. February 11, 2009 at 11:29 pm

    Even though Letterman and the Top 10 list is on the Late Show not Late Night, I gotta give it to Team A. Was totally not expecting anything that good… and I mean that in a good way.

  33. February 12, 2009 at 8:36 am

    Guys of both teams.

    In such a short time you all have done a great job. Please come back next year to try it again.

    Thank You to all that was involved.


  34. February 12, 2009 at 1:01 pm

    I vote for team C, theirs was much better than team a and b combined. Joe

    February 12, 2009 at 3:15 pm

    Great job Team A! You pulled through some early struggles to deliver a better, funnier finished product.

  36. February 12, 2009 at 4:45 pm

    Voted but love that you all did this for such a great charity! Kudos to all of you…and you are all “winners” but the real winner’s are those that will benefit from your blurry eyes!

  37. February 13, 2009 at 12:58 am

    Wow, Team A’s video turned out much better than I expected! Can’t wait to hear the results! And I want to see the horror trailer!!

    Fantastic job everyone, I loved watching the whole series from start to finish. My vote goes to Team A. I am glad you guys put the effort in to come up with a great story. Holy Kubota!Team B was entertaining and hilarious but lacked in story.

    Hey guys,
    From down under (New Zealand) – LOVE the work you all did on the vid’s. Fantastic work to complete in 24 hrs. Can’t wait to see Team A’s horror 😀

  40. February 14, 2009 at 5:54 pm

    I’m a votin for TEAM A

  41. Paulina
    February 15, 2009 at 2:12 pm

    Both were great and a lot of hard work put
    into them. Team A made me really laugh especially the Kubota interview.

    Team A rocks the house!

  43. February 17, 2009 at 1:51 am

    All the videos were so much fun to watch. But in the end, Bambi’s crew got my vote! F.F.F.= fun, fun, fun….wished I could be at wppi, next year for sure!

    February 17, 2009 at 10:47 pm

    Wow, what an awesome effort from both teams. Team A you surprised me with an incredible video. I have so enjoyed watching everything unfold. I thought Team B was a clear winner before seeing the videos but Team A put up such a good fight.

  45. February 19, 2009 at 1:39 am

    Congrats to Team A on their win. The whole series was great and all the films (including Killer Kamera) were lots of fun.
