    Hi! This is my first :apple:Apple video (fake or real)

    It is where I pull my mac mini out of a manila envelope, but then the rest can't fit.

    It is a parody to the mac book air ad.

    Just would like to get your opinions.

    pretty good, the lighting should be warmer throughout the whole video, the last shot is what I mean, compared to the colder earlier shots. Go a little slower, some of the cuts and takes were fairly quick. It would have been funny if you pulled all of the peripherals out of seperate envelopes, and at the end there was a pile of envelopes next to your setup. keep the cloth your on smoother. leave the text on the screen longer as well, I had to go back to read it. and a tripod for some of the shots would have worked better

    Thanks for the advice!


    I didnt have big enough envelopes for all the stuff! shame! Maybe in the remake!

    The apple video has the nice white backgrounds but still feels warm. It is kinda hard for me to make that with a cloth that can show almost brown in weird light! But I will try again!

    I kept ironing the cloth after every take :p

    Yes, I was getting frustrated with the fact that the clips where too fast. I noticed after I filmed.

    Tripod and longer text deff!

    I really do like the "at least part of it fits in an envelope." :D

    hehe ya glad to help. I know I got really picky with some things but that's what constructive criticism is all about
    =)
    I really did like it though, it was good, and I know all about how hard it is to make a shot look warm like that, it's a pain sometimes, but that last shot really looked great.
    what are you using to edit?
