    Since Apple has only been advertising for the iPhone 5c since its release, I decided to try to make an ad for the iPhone 5s. What do you think? I'm trying to work on my editing skills, and I think this might be the best yet I have done!

    I'm confused....I thought all of that footage is already in an apple commercial? :confused:

    Or did you use Apples footage and make your own edit?

    You might want to update your description on YouTube acknowledging the copyright holder, otherwise it could get pulled down. I'd also remove the "This is an ad made by MacDude98" from the description, as you don't own the footage. Other than that, decent editing skills.

    I didn't watch the video. OP took existing footage and then what?

    Watch it or don't ask?

    Anyway, good job op. It looks very official. It could easily pass as the real thing!

    Why? Did he just splice scenes together like in iMovie? Not interested.

    If he shot the thing himself with an iPhone, wrote the dialog, composed and played music I'm interested. Cutting together existing footage worked for Columbia to milk the Three Stooges but today it's boring.

    Good Job!

    I am sure Steve Jobs will love this

    Why don't you send it to Apple I am sure they will love it too!

    Your title and description is very misleading - the very first thing you need to do is give credit and a disclaimer:

    disclaimer : the footage usage is copyrighted by Apple and are not taken by me.

    You also need to give credit to the musicians who composed and produce the song used. I'm so put off by your terrible and misleading description as well as you seemingly just passing off people's reaction by saying that you said "editing skills".

    15 or not, you've already made the biggest failure in the business. From someone who is a part of the creative industry, this is not something to be taken lightly.

    You are down right copying footage and music, spending a few minutes editing it then calling it your own. In a creative world, this is call stealing.

    You're not looking for feedback, you're looking for praise - which you might have actually gotten if you had credited the right people, made a disclaimer that it's not your footage, and focus on telling people it's something you pieced together from footage and music you found elsewhere.

    Its good but its missing the Ive voiceover in a nice short sleeve v-neck saying profound ans inherent =)

    Also a real ad would give more insight into key features especially camera and security. Not to mention its an edit that anyone with some experience could do.

    That being said I do like it and wish Apple had done it, this does show a creative sode with a good eye for film editing. Perhaps youll be doing the cut of blockbuster movies some day and we will stop losing great scenes.

    Yeah. I recognised some footage. The footage isn't his.

    You are correct, but cut the kid a little slack. He is learning to edit.

    The OP needs to understand this post and play by the rules. Try your hand at stuff, but give credit where credit is due.
