    Well, somehow, even though the damn thing was done a week ago, it still came down the wire getting it uploaded. I'm not really sure how, but it just goes to show: there's always a last minute snag. It's 100% done and delivered now, though! Looking forward to seeing what everyone has cooked up!

    just watched your entry. I must say it was stunning, plus it involved zombies so it gets an automatic thumbs up. Excellent cg work/locations.

    Your entry was the first I went to check out, and it set a standard! The visuals were absolutely excellent. Not just the composition of the shots, but also the details -- the makeup -- the color tone -- the choice to make the area under the bridge almost like a dreamy safe haven. It's a nice, simple idea very well-executed.

    I think there's a real energy to it. So part of me would like to see a more dramatic, orchestral or beat-oriented score for the hectic bits -- something a bit more cinematic. I do like the minimalism of the music under the bridge, though.

    Would you mind telling me what camera was used?

    Nice job!

    This is really outstanding work. Well written, good production value, and clever use of the brand. The timing is exquisite and it's a joy seeing someone who understands the "beats" in a 30 second spot. Congrats to you, and your excellent cast and crew--the creativity and hard work really show.

    Ditto.

    What Barry_S just said about the beats, was so dead on... You nailed the beats. This is a commercial for a product if I ever saw one.

    Very nice work. Best all around complete package. Haven't picked any winners yet. Viewed them all twice so far, and your's is definitely in my list of 5 that stood out to me so far.

    The only thing I would say is that you had a bit of a consistency problem revolving around the burning car. You see it off behind in the distance, and then you see it closer two times after that. The only reason I noticed it is b/c your effects were subtle and I wanted to go back and have a closer look at the burning car.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Wow, this was pretty darn impressive. Nice pacing indeed. The cinematography and the script are outstanding. I thought the music wasn't as strong as the ad though. It would be cool if it was kept to minimum and we just heard the heavy panting and the footsteps.

    Definitely #1 on my list so far! Fabulous piece of work!

    I loved the shot selection, I just wish you would have romanced the product a little more, maybe an ECU on the bottle as the man is drinking? Just nit-picking, but overall, a fantastic piece!

    Oh my goodness ... granted, only the third I've watched so far, but WOWZA!!! Opened with incredible production value, and it stayed that way all the way through. GREAT use of the logo/branding, and as a consumer? ... you SOOOO made me want a drink of what that guy had.

    In a dry, airid climate, you made me thirsty (okay, I actually am, sitting here in my over heated office), and that drink looks soo incredibly lush & inviting. Crisp, cool, and clean ... just what you need for 2nd wind to keep running from a flesh hungry horde.

    I at first wondered if you were just using a clip from Zombie Fest, then I saw the machine.

    Seriously, nice ... VERY nice work!
