    I loved the intro and the tron sections, a bit on the long side though.

    Did you make this? If so I have some questions to ask about the methods used.

    Thats some well done vectorization, though i would have liked the actual unit colors, and I don't think the take apart works. Awesome job though.

    I agree - the take apart doesn't look very good compared to the rest of it but overall it looks pretty good to me.

    Way cool

    Very nice job of the animation. Good music selection, too.

    It is a mystery why Apple doesn't drive more advertising from it's user base. I'm sure there would be a way to address the legal issues inherent with this type of creative work.

    And given the passion Apple users have for the company and the talent they bring to their work, the relationship is a natural. Apple has a community of PR and ad agencies at its fingertips.

    This brings to mind some interesting facts. I love the iPod campaign that Apple has developed. It is 100% successful, and has placed the iPod in one of the few near-universally recognized icons.

    However, this kind of initiative makes it very obvious what kind of visual campaigns Apple could be running. It's kind of depressing, actually.

    Anyhow, this guy did excellent work! I love it!

    If you hadn't told me it wasn't a real Apple commercial I would've never guessed. Good job whoever!

    That's a fantastic commerical. Who created this? The only thing I feel is missing from it is the "human," element you get in the real iPod commerical - people interacting with the iPod itself - otherwise I think it's superb and should be a great portfolio piece.

    Truely awesome.
    The takeapart doesn't fit in though, I agree. The intro, was very good, and the ending was spectacular.

    Thanks for the compliments and constructive criticism. It's all appreciated. I agree the break apart could be stronger. It took me about 4 months of "free" time (of which I have very little) to make it.

    i agree. great job. there are two parts that don't jive with me, those being the aforementioned take-apart and the extended kaleidoscope at the end. though they're both visually splendid, they seem disconnected to the themes of motion and flow.

    i feel that using the kaleidoscope misses an opportunity for a sharp ending. the float of the last ipod mini works so well. watching it, i could see the racing minis wipe across and drop your closing title.

    excellent work.

    Anyone know if this song is widely available -- Tiny Machine?

    Thought it would be on iTMS, but no dice.

    Tiny Machine

    The song has been out of print for some time. I've been telling people to try ebay.
