This Campaign Ad Was Created in Just 20 Minutes by a 12-Year Old Using a Smartphone

The daughter of a consultant for a New Jersey Congressional candidate put together a “movie trailer” style campaign ad using her iPhone. The whole process from start to finish took just 20 minutes.

Business Insider notes the ad for Democrat Donald Norcross shows the power of emerging technology in campaigns.

Norcross campaign spokesman Ken Shuttleworth told Business Insider the ad was made by Olivia Ayscue, 12, of Haddon Heights, New Jersey. Olivia’s father is the veteran Garden State political operative Steve Ayscue. 

“She used file photography easily found on line and just played around till she was satisfied,” Shuttleworth said in an email to Business Insider. “Her parents are active supporters of Donald Norcross and have been for years. In fact, her dad is a member of the campaign staff  and made sure it was incorporated into the website.”
