    Not bad at all (although if it's for a marketing class, it lacks a point). I have seen MUCH worse actually run as commercials. What's sad is most of these could've probably been made better with just iMovie.

    By the way...that stupid thing where the phone always rings at the end? For some reason, I really really hate that. :)

    Actually iMovie can do quite a bit, and it really really is sad when it can do a better job than whats on tv :rolleyes:

    I had to really look at this for a while to kind of decide why the cuts where wrong, in the end if you look really closely the real iphone ads are cut halfway through action. You are kind of creating a jump shot with yours.

    Yeah, yeah, yeah. Problem is that's kinda redundant when they throw this on the screen at the end:

    iPhone :)

    Yes, I thought it was quite well done. Next time hire a hand model, though! Ok, I'm just kidding...

    I enjoyed it. I think it is an excellent idea for TV production through High School.

    Ya but you have to think about the people who've really never heard of the iPhone before. First of all they haven't seen one of these commercials before, secondly, they're dumb or seriously sheltered or both, and lastly most people don't really read ever single thing that pops up on the screen.

    I think it's just reminds you that you're not looking at a PDA or something of that sort so it kind of is supposed to almost surprise you.

    "Oh that thing can tell me where the nearest starbucks is?! wow amazing! and OMG it's a phone as well, that is amazing"

    It's also kind of a sales technique, show the phone in an every day situation, and show that you can make calls realistically and easily. So kind of show the product in it's natural state :rolleyes:

    Well he could have gotten a manicure just for this clip :rolleyes:

    Maybe a girl's or a woman's hand...

    would do justice to this "cool" commercial. ;)

    Haha, Zoolander reference caught!

    Great ad. :) It certainly flows just as if Apple had made it, I think. Sure, there would've been the guys voice, but the way you zoomed in on the screen and stuff like that, I certainly see where you were going with it. :)

    Keep it up!:cool:
