    Most creative of the entries, I think. In my top five of possibles.

    Nice work. I'm a fan of stop motion, and you pulled it off well. The most creative use of the logo, and most creative submission in my opinion.

    Audio, like many of the entries was the weak point that kept this commercial from jumping into a category with a more 'pro-caliber' production feel, if you will.

    Thanks,
    Jason

    How long did that take to put together? I admire anyone who can do stop motion. I loved all of the effects that you did with the logo.

    I agree with the comments about the audio. Though I thought the female voice worked for the spot. The guy's voice seemed a little too stiff.

    Great spot.

    Yeah, great job here Carleton. I know we're in competition but I wouldn't mind loosing to you. Yours is definitely more creative than a pretty girl walking around in a park.

    I follow the others by saying that this is probably the most creative submission of all. The stop motion works really well combined with the sound effects and VO. The slogan at the end fits also very well.

    The thing I admire most about this entry is that Carleton again steps out-of-the-box and comes up with a unique and original method of presentation; an entry that goes against the grain, like he did previously in SpyFest. While it's probably not the most polished entry of the fest, it's refreshing to see something different. Nice job.

    Yup, I liked this one as well. I liked how you made fun of the contest entries by making Kinetica do everything!

    At least that's how I took it.

    Great entry! Nice stop motion work.

    Thanks for the kind words everybody. A few quick stats on the production:

    -It was shot all in 20 hour period.
    -I used a Nikon D80 hooked up to my G5 to preform the stopmotion.
    -4 separate pairs of hands were utilized for the spot.
    -The most thankless job in the world is cleaning the glass with windex after every 5 frames.

    As cheesy as it sounds, I actually got the idea for this commercial in a dream. When I woke up, I was really bummed that I didn't actually make the commercial in real life. But I realised that I could do it easily. So, 2 days later we had everything ready and got it shot. The commercial was broken down into about 7 separate sequences, which had to be pieced together in the editing room.

    Here is a link to a timelapse of the entire 20 hour period.

    Thanks to everybody who commented on this project. I'm happy to discuss any and all aspects of the production.

    Did you hands get dry? Mine usually get really dry after using Windows for an hour when cleaning my reel to reel decks.

    As all clay animators must do, I was wearing gloves for the majority of the time so I don't know if they would have gotten dried out or not. I bet they would have, were it not for the gloves.
