My idea of an advert should be to sell a product or to inform the viewer.Just found out I suck at trying to do either of these.With a 3 min video I seem to struggle to convey a message,30 seconds is right out of the question.Just finnished a rough edit of a 1 min piece,and still far from happy with it..Its one thing producing something for yourself,but to produce something for an organisation that could possibly sell them short is a daunting endeavour indeed.

John,

I can appreciate what you are saying. Working with the public is always full of surprises!!
I shot two hours of footage and now what I want to produce is not what the board desires. It will not even be competitive in a far reach of the topic, and I can be pretty imaginative in that regard. I am going to produce it as they desire it but I probably wont even submit it. Pretty easy to lose ones enthusiasm.

Well, thankfully, Iíve been given the green light! Presented my commercial to the organization and they loved it. It will go up onto their website in October as soon as the person with whom I have been liaising gets back from an overseas trip. I feel so relieved itís over.

Good Afternoon,

Last week the organiztions rep approved the rough after we jointly came to some comprimises. Spent 7:30 this morning until 1:30 wrapping the post on my entry. It is a bit of a long reach for small naked and cuddley; we are part way there but when you see it you know why we couldn't go all the way. Had some difficult decisions on shot order and audio, but it is done and it will be used on their web page. No news on the TV spot mostly due to timing at this point.
