    definitely a harder choice than the print ads. Had to go with the best of in the end because of the outside the screen work as well as the windows etc. on screen stuff. But the on-screen work in break down, baby using expose was really well done, hats off. Just needed a better complete picture there too. Like I said all 4 were great ads.

  5. macrumors 601

    Compile 'em all

    Anyone knows what song is played in Boring Business Presentations Ad? :cool:. I voted for it too, I thought it was fast and straight to the point.
  6. macrumors 601


    I voted for it to! The song is "Galvanize" by The Chemical Brothers.
  7. macrumors 601

    Compile 'em all

    That was fast. Thanks :)

    I really enjoyed the fast pace of "Boring Business Presentations" and the song really topped it off.
  9. macrumors 68020


    wow, loved 'em all. I'm really impressed with our video people. no offense to anyone, but these were all way more professional than the print ads. I'm gonna have to vote for decksnap's simply because it was so creative. Kingsly, spicyapple, and dpaalka, yours were also really amazing. Way to go everyone!

    Good job everyone, and good luck! :)

    loved the beck song
  12. macrumors demi-god


    I'm surprised boring busniess presentations is tied for last. I liked it the most.
  13. macrumors 604


    Anyone know what the Song in "Best of" is?

    Never Mind-Saw some one talked about Beck, searched on iTunes,and found it!
  14. macrumors 68040


    They all make we wish I could create something like that. Generations gets my vote. It's just...beautiful. Can anyone tell me what the music is?

    Two questions and I hope I'm not going to sound too stupid:

    How do you get a moving background behind a photo (the two girls sitting on the wall)?

    How do you do the moving clouds?
  15. macrumors 68040


    In case anyone else wants the soundtrack to Best Of, I am providing it free of charge. :cool: ;)

    Thanks everyone who voted for me, and good luck to the other contestants! :)
  16. macrumors 6502

    I also voted for your video:) I loved the song, and the guitar smash bit at the end was great.... very well thought-out, and it made me laugh!
  17. macrumors 68030


    generations... wow, that's the most beautiful thing I've seen in a while.

  18. macrumors G4


    Your welcome Kingsly. :) :cool:

    P.S.- I expect my check in the mail.... ;) :D
  19. macrumors 68040


    I thought these were really well done. Much better than the print ads (don't worry, I liked those too!). If I saw Generations actually come on TV, I don't think I'd question that it was an Apple ad, and I really liked it too. That got my vote, but they were all excellent.
  20. macrumors 68040


    I was torn between the last two, but went with generations just because it was a better Apple ad, (iPod + iTunes) than the ad for just Keynote. I really liked them both though.
  21. macrumors 65816


    I think part of it has to do with the 'humour' factor. Most of the video ads submitted were made Apple-like and could be somewhat mistaken for an actual Apple ad, just like the contest details stated. When voting started people voted for the most Apple like ad here, while for the print ad's they voted for the one the liked the most, for example ozontheroad's submission labelled Davinci. I'll admit the ad is funny and has a good idea behind it, but I could never see it as an actual Apple ad. :)
  22. macrumors 65816


    Wow, they're all great! Nice work everyone!!
  23. macrumors 6502a

    I really liked all of them - great job everyone! But since I could only vote for one, I chose generations.
  24. macrumors G3


    Transparency (layers) in photoshop, and Motion, I assume...
  25. macrumors 65816


    Those were awesome. But I can't decide...
