    This is a beautiful little spot and it has a nice fluid sensibility. The music is perfect, although I puzzled over why it abruptly cuts at the end. A few of the shots seem a tinge too long, but overall this is a solid spot. I felt like you had a message and understood the product and the demographic. Viva la film!

    This is the most unique entry for me (other than the fact that it was shot on film, which is awesome). It had it's own unique vibe to it, that I enjoyed a lot.

    Nostalgic feel. Simple, subtle, and quite effective.

    Loved the vinyl popping in the audio.

    Seemed the thread holding it all together was just a tinge (to steal Barry's word) to thin... Lacked just a bit of organization, I felt.

    In my list of 5 that stood out. Haven't picked any winners though.

    Thanks,
    Jason

    I really liked the vibe from this one but a lot of the shots just didn't do anything for me.

    I agree with the fact that it's a bit chaotic and doesn't have as much flow to it.

    The guy's music is great though. Oh wait, that's me .

    I really like the overall look. How much of the color was created in camera vs. in post?

    This was the first time I shot movie film. Everything fit on one roll of 100' Vision2 50D.

    We also shot another spot prior to this on black and white reversal 8mm film using a Bolex H8 (below) but I didn't feel as strongly about the footage and composition. The music would probably fit in even better though.

    I was thinking of doing extensive colour correction as I've had the transfer house (Film Discreet) do an uncompressed transfer directly onto a hard drive, but in light of my obsession with all things 60s I realized that the music fit the low-contrast look better. Hence very little colour adjustment has been done to the original negative. I mostly just made sure the white balance was consistent.

    The only real post-work done was the colour changes and the Shake script for the titles that made the text shake a bit and change brightness randomly to emulate the look of opticals.

    I just realized, after watching the first entry, that I need to watch these as purely a commercial, and not pick the heck out of it like I would usually as a filmmaker.

    As a commercial, it works. Cuts a little abrubptly, but otherwise SCREAMS for a specific, hip demographic, and really is fun. Nice job.

    Okay, from the filmmaker aspect, I also dug the style.
