Fake ad with the skill 35

Here's an ad that was shot in an afternoon an cut in a day. We used the adaptor we've made and a diy dolly.
Tell me what you think.

That was pretty funny. Too much vignetting for my taste but the bokeh was nice. what's a skill35?

I love the drink responsibly bit at the end! Well done...side tracking shot of the guy bowling was fantabulous...good parallax. Vignetting was a bit heavy though...you may want to see about zooming in a bit on the focussing screen somehow.

If you want to make it look like a U.S. commercial, nobody can actually drink an alcoholic beverage. They all stand around acting like they are partying it up with the booze, but they don't actually drink. Where's the fun in that?!

It looked like a fun project and the camera work was good. I must agree with the previous posts that the vignetting is too much.

Ditto for all the comments above concernning vignetting . I liked the style and pacing of the shots. I don't know how convinced I'd be of buying a product with a guy puking in the commercial though. :) Just a marketing strategy that wouldn't work on me that's all, and I know it's 'fake'.

The production value was alright. I think some better color correction would also help.

Also, the vignetting is far too much for my taste.

And one last note: the ending is really disgusting.

Just an additional note on the vignetting: try zooming in a little more with your camera.

Speaking of camera, what did you use?
