I’m so happy with how the clip came out – they did a fantastic job on the editing! It was such an AMAZING experience that I will never forget! I feel so blessed to be a part of it! And if I may add, many thanks to everyone who has supported me and encouraged me in all of my artistic ventures. I truly appreciate you all! And a special thanks to everyone at Arnold Worldwide/Progressive for inviting me out to take part in this project! I am so honored! This experience was just a testament to me that if you just keep doing what you love, simply because you enjoy it, great opportunities will come out of it! And if you are prepared, you can take those great opportunities and turn them into something amazing! Happy Carving everyone!

 

Finally, when filming was wrapped, the crew took my pumpkin to be photographed in another room. They invited us to stay and eat dinner, but they had already done so much for us during the day (including buy lunch) that we didn’t want to impose. My husband and I thanked everyone for everything and said our goodbyes. It took weeks for the editing – after all, I assume it was no easy task editing down hours of footage into a 45 second clip! (Speaking of which, the final video is posted below. Please note, although I am in it, I did NOT make this video. This is the official Progressive, Flo 3D Pumpkin video.) Having said that, Enjoy!

The "Cheshire Cat" 3D pumpkin carving I've been working on. It took 3 different pumpkins to make. One for the face and lower arms, one separate pumpkin for the body, and another for the tail and upper legs. It was soooo much work, but it was worth it. I love challenging pumpkins! And putting this together in front of a live audience was a little nerve-wracking, but it all worked out! -Brandy Davis
