Down to FIVE: UNC School of the Arts graduate Mark Freiburger is one of five finalists with a chance to get his Doritos commercial shown during this year’s Super Bowl (FEB 03) – and possibly win $1 million dollars. The 29 year
old filmmaker (and native of Charlotte) directed a commercial called “Fashionista Daddy,” in which a dad is persuaded to ditch a football game with his pals when his Doritos-packing daughter wants him to play “Princess Fashion Show.”

FYI: Just for being chosen as a finalist, Freiburger and his team received $25,000 dollars and will be in a special skybox at the Super Bowl game with the other four
commercial teams. No one will know which commercials are chosen to air until it
actually happens. The team shot the commercial in Los Angeles with a budget of about $300. Everyone in front of and behind the camera were friends, but they had to rent dresses and buy Doritos.

The second-place winner gets $600,000; third place gets $400,000. **Super Bowl Sunday – February 3 – in New Orleans San Fran 49ers VS Baltimore Ravens
