Can anyone post a larger high-res version of the "Coming Zoon" ad? I absolutely love that one, and would like it as wallpaper on my 1280x800 MacBook display.

Thank you in advance

I'm usually not one to post on the forums but I have to say that "Generations" was incredible. I felt a tingle in my spine when I saw the ad, no joke. Apple Marketing should take note!

Generations

SpicyApple.

I have to say it again. I have watched it a good 30 times or so.

The commercial almost brings me to tears.

You captured the heart of music and the meaning of music.

I put on my iPod and showed (on the TV) my wife. She is ready to but an iPod and she was in tears.

I cannot say enough positive about this. Apple should pay you a pile of money. I am going show this in my history classes next week. I will come up with a context.

Thank You so much!

I agree, as much as I loved the winners, I think it went a little fast. Less is more

Spicy,

How does one do that really cool effect of the background moving with the foreground picture moving?

This article explains the technique in depth. Glad you both enjoyed it.

OK. I hadn't commented on this, but I wanted to congratulate Kingsly, spicyapple, and ATD.

I hope the runner ups get a neat prize, too, because they all did such a wonderful job (I'm assuming they get that red ribbon icon). For a non-monetary prize (or any tangible prize, even) there were such wonderful submissions. Great job to everyone involved, and I was happy to see Kingsly and spicyapple tie.

Song in SpicyApples the Winner Is?

Please SOMEBODY tell me what that song was that was used in SpicyApples slideshow. That is really the only reason that made the video so good. Have that same slideshow with no music or some other song, and see how good it is. Congrats to the song artist, not the slideshow. Anybody can make moving pictures. Not everybody can compose music like that.

There have been direct links posted for the song and plenty of comments about it. Back up to the first page and you'll see a post about the music used in the video ads.

Your comment comes across as being rather rude. It's like saying only blind people can appreciate music to its fullest because they aren't distracted by the artists or their surroundings.

Spicyapple matched great music with beautiful photos and text and that is what makes the ad so great. The music alone would be unable to evoke such a feeling on its own.

I swear spicyapple's avatar is looking at a certain award.

Nice spicyapple.

Edit: NVM, it has been changed.

Interesting stuff... unfortunately I doubt that my future kids can look at the last video ad...

Holy thread resurrection batman!

Btw, that was only mildly insulting to many of our members here who have submitted entries to the various contests.
