    Hello guys!

    I have just completed my iMovie of the Apple Store Regent Street opening. Its some time ago now I know, but it was still a huge amount of fun.

    I have made into more than just a simple "queue-cam" and therefore it is quite long, and includes a number of interview and shots of the inside of the store. Because of this, if your on dial-up, don't even bother, it's 44mb.

    You can check it all out here:

    Hope you enjoy it.

    Very Good

    Impressive piece of work. Have you made an "encapsulated" version, say at 3-4 minutes? I think you'd have a real internet phenomenon on your hands.

    Again, my compliments.

    No not as of yet, although it is on my list of things to do!

    Many thanks for the kind wors, I am glad you enjoyed it. If I do have a chance to make a tighter version I will let you all know and post as to its wherabouts.

    BTW - It's good to finally post here, I have been a Macrumours reader for years and I visit at least 5 times a day.

    Take good care all.

    Regards

    Very nice. I didn't know how crazy the London opening was until I saw your movie.

    What did you order at Sabzi? Is that restaurant close to the Apple store?

    Now you've got me wondering...

    Did I remember the name incorrectly?! If I am correct, Sabzi is the name of the excellent coffee and food shop that was located on the left hand side of Princes Street (when looking at Regent's Street). They stayed open late, (till the milk run out!) and served great food and drinks.

    While on opening morning Starbucks used their massive buying power to provide free coffee (many thanks guys), Sabzi was way cooler. It was like the Apple of the food and drinks world.

    Best of all was the cool store owner who worked his but off and even carroed chalkboards around saying "Think Different, Think Sabzi".

    If that ain't cool, then I am a tree.

    Now I just bloody hope I got the name right! I'm sure it was Sabzi, but I wouldn't really describe it as a restaurant, although it DID serve food.

    If anyone can shed light on this issue, that would be great.

    Glad you liked the movie.

    Regards

    Tony

    Awesome. This is all I can say. Great work.
    I'd love to get my hands on the high quality version though :D
    If you'd cut it to 3-4 mins it'd be THE opening movie.
    Again, awesome work.

    Thanks very much Diatribe.

    I may look into cutting it to 3-4 minutes, but I am not sure if I could make something so good. It was planned to be about 15mins and I'm not sure how it would transition to a shorter time.... Still. I am GAME for a challenge!

    If your interested in the high quality version, I may well be able to put it on CD for you and mail it to you as a VCD. Or, for money, I could put it on DVD and send it too you! But I would be surprised if you would want that!

    Glad you liked it, it sure does look better at HQ. Cheers again.

    That is awesome man. I didn't know iMovie could do all that. Looks like i have to go read the secrets book again.

    How in the world did you make those awesome effects with the wording at the very end? Is there a separate plugin?

    It's still not small, but there is a new 'heavily editied' version online now. The movie was planned to run to about 15mins so the new version isn't as slick IMHO. Anyways, check it out here if you desire:

    http://homepage.mac.com/joshlemonlyman/iMovieTheater3.html

    It's about 15MB.

    Enjoy and Happy Christmas!
