I too am impressed with your spot.

Very nice command of motion and composition, as well as editorial choices, particularly in the opening (the approach).

The photography and exposures were dead-on, nice rich skin tones.

Viewing the QT file, I think I would have guessed this originated on film, or at least HD. Amazing that this is mini DV.

The overhead shot as well as the low tracking shot towards the windows is a perfect example of picking the right time of day to achieve a naturally lit effect that would otherwise require a very substantial lighting budget. Excellent.

My only thoughts are the use of the slide effect on two consecutive shots in the middle, which I found somewhat distracting; and the final shot of the actress delivering her line was a bit static in comparison to the rest of the spot (and the speed ramped drive in that starts the shot). I might have liked to see a quick cut punch in, i.e. shoot her with two slightly different focal lengths, then cut from the wide to the tighter one in the middle of the line, which would add some kick to the shot.

Overall though, you delivered a fantastic amount of quality for the dollar, and your client should be ecstatic.

thanks for the great review charles, you've made my day/week/year. and thanks for the great suggestions, always appreciated (like film school without the crushing debt). I look forward to having more work to share with the group and to receiving more of your great insights and observations.
