Default Greener Apple Campaign

Hello folks,

it's been a little while since I posted anything up here, the final leg of my university course has taken over my life for the past few weeks!!!

In order to stop my drought of posts I thought I'd put up this ad/campaign video I've just finished for one of my modules.

Greener Apple (approx 15Meg)

I made it as part of a group project the idea of which was to improve public awareness of the Greener Apple campaign.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy it.... any crit or feedback is always welcome.

Take it easy,

Mat

hmm, that is a pretty good video.
Scary to think of all the things we use to power our wonderful technologies though huh.

Thanks folks,

Acid44:

The kid is my older daughter, I'll let her know she has a creepy voice!!

Seroiusly though, it's meant to be a bit spooky, I rekon the music box helps the effect too.

It's our generation which has made these problems which are going to affect her generation and beyond, what if children were aware of the issues threatening the environment and were able to orate their opinion eloquantly?

I used a child voice to enforce the point, if it was a mature voice reading the words, it would appear to be just another public service announcement and people would probably just drift off but, in my opinion, the "creepy" kids voice draws your attention and makes you listen to the words.

Steve, looking forward to the mail.

Cheers,

Mat

You find british accents creppy?
I thought people were supposed to think we sound posh (unless you come from Birmingham :p )

the one thing i could think that may have been wrong with it is that there is no voice in the end bit after the logo changes to apple because people dont watch ads that closly if it is only text they may not take it in.

but other than that a great ad

Thenks for the encouragnig words,

Acid: no worries

elephantinc: I decided against any sound in the second half ,apart from the birdsong that is, as I found test audiences preferred it. It supposedly makes for a calmer, cleaner experience... go figure!!

I was inspired to use the birdsong from a radio test card I heard about 15 years ago....... I think it was classic fm, they broadcast birdsong to test the station signal for a week or so before it went live.

I was up on top of some moors in North England with some friends and we had a radio, thinking it was turned off we sat down to have some sandwiches and started talking about how nice it was that we could hear the birds while we ate. It took a little while to realise that there were no birds on the moor and we were listening to the radio.... Hmmmmm.

mastone: I wasn't an Apple fan before the project and I'm still not! The whole thing was made on my PC :attn:

Cheers again,

Mat.
