I have no website. I couldnīt get any designer that could help me to build it yet.
Macgregor is a trademark of Miguel de Olaso

macgregor, 18 seconds and similo are the most beautiful movies i've seen shot with digital cameras. hope i'm not missing something too obvious here, but where is the link for "nothing gets closer"?

Thanks for boosting my confidence in the XH-A1 even further!
I have the camera and really like it so far. But I was floored when I saw what you did with it.
The adapter seems pretty good for the price. Any more details worth mentioning on your experience working with it?
What mode did you shoot in (f or i) and what shutter speed did you use?
Someone said, the ad looks "close to professional". To hell with that! That thing could run on TV and Iīd be stunned!

I think this is by far the best entry (though it wasn't really meant as an entry), so if I was to judge your work, it'd be based on the standard of what I expect from a professional level ad, not necessarilly what I'd expect from an amateur or independent filmmaker. If my criticisms seem harsh, it's only because you're show immense talent in your previous works.
Personally, I prefer MacGregor's other projects before this (SIMILO, 18 seconds). This is the worst he's submitted -- far from bad, just not just his best. It's still very professional and contains some stunning visuals, but on a professional level, the visuals are substandard -- you expect these type of visuals. I suggest changeing it up a little so that your future projects don't look like any other car commercial.
The narrator was kind of cheesey, and I would have personally changed the tagline.
For an ad, especially a car commercial, you really need to grab someone by the balls to catch their attention -- being unique and different is one way of separating yourself and making an ad effective. I don't think this particular ad was extremely "original"; very professional, but not creative when compared to other commercials I've seen on TV.
To me, this is more of an exercise of MacGregor's technical skills, not necessarilly his artistic skills. It was professional, flashy, nice visuals, but just not great when compared to other professional ads on TV.
