Thank you everyone!

Super stoked that I won! Terrific job by everyone it was a pretty tough competition and I lots of fun making the commercial. Funny things to note: the bomb is actually a fruit cake i got for Christmas, with a old outside garage door opener tied together with some speaker wire i found lying around.

I would like to give a big thanks to Ben for doing the explosion and helping me out with the creative process, Davi for his Brazilian style Jack Bauer, and the people at dealsplus for hosting/judging the contest and one of the best web 2.0 sites out there!

Thanks!

What software did you use to make your video?
Flaminfire Jan 08, 2007
well my friend did the editing for me, and he used final cut express for mac. Wat u use?
philboy Jan 08, 2007
sad to say Windows Movie Maker... it sucks the big one!
Flaminfire Jan 08, 2007
Yea sort of, for beginners its great, really easy to make a movie. But when i was watching my freind use the mac, it looked so simple! I guess the mac is jsut easier to use. Like the part where the screen zooms in on deals plus, look absolutely no hassle at all.
ujaas Jan 08, 2007

TheTrueMaster Jan 08, 2007
Agreed, although there were only 8 entries, most of the people that submitted their entries spent a lot of their times making their videos, there should be at least one more winner, because its not fair for people that really worked hard on it. I'm not saying that Dchandaman's video is bad or anything, his is really good, but I just think that other people should get another chance in this contest to win a 360.

It would be great if we can.
I would be able to use the extra time to choose a better song, make it make sense, add some effects, maybe a voice over...
Tactilefile Jan 07, 2007
Not trying to be a naysayer here, but I would have to say no because of the fact that it’s unfair to the ones who did get them done on time. That’s part of the stake of this competition. Part of what made it challenging for me is the fact that I only had a few days to do it. You have to know to be ready for this challenge. “AND KNOWING IS HALF THE BATTLE!!!” LOL!!! But that’s just my opinion. And GI JOE would agree with me.

Tactilefile Jan 07, 2007
I mean if that's the case, I'll could do another commercial too! Is there a limit to how many one user can post?
drudwn Jan 07, 2007
Id say it would depend on if were accepting new videos because we already had lots of time to make them. If we were then No... If its just the people who already submited and met the first deadline then maybe that would help us all with quality...

But then again everyone already knows the ideas we had behind the commercials so maybe its better if we just left them as is... Just things to think about.

I'm down for what the majority wants. Kinda would like to know who would win as they are though :)

Nobody responded to furax and i about how the commercials were being judged btw. Were we going for Classic Style Commercials, Being Creative, Spoofs, Ones With Lots of Info about the Site or what?
Vin_Diesel Jan 07, 2007
No limit.
drudwn Jan 07, 2007
good point i got off a plane and came straight to my pc to make sure i could get somthing together
Dchandaman Jan 07, 2007
I'd say no to the extension, because the rules were pretty simple and the deadline is a deadline and it really isn't fair to the ones who already submitted.

Tactilefile Jan 07, 2007

philboy Jan 08, 2007
Vin,

What I was trying to say before I ranted on with my GO JOE statement, is that I think it would be very unfair to extend the deadline another week for all the people who met the deadline of the contest. Unless you want to give all the people who where on time a Xbox 360 and let the other people fight it out for a flash drive or something.

If we are going to extend it another week then what is the point of a deadline? Just wondering why do you want to extend it?
TheTrueMaster Jan 08, 2007
No, I dont think that the contest should be extended because there was a deadline for this contest that was set from the beginning, if people really wanted to win that 360, they would have spent a lot of time making it. Just because there were some people that didnt time for whatever reason, doesnt mean that the contest should be extended, you people should have tought about it ahead of time. Thats how life is in the real world, live with it.

What if all the people that made a video have another week to further improve their videos? That would help alot!
And everyone's quality would go up!

This is very true valid point
pennyfan87 Jan 06, 2007
Ummm...When will the winners be posted??
furax Jan 06, 2007
so how are the winners going to end up being decided? is it going to be a user-vote, youtube rating/hits, most likely to make it on tv, a mixture of everything??
when i originally came up w/the idea, i was thinkin user vote....just curious what you guys decided on.
drudwn Jan 07, 2007
yeah i never did catch that is it creativity? One that would be for tv? or is there gonna be a poll?

How about a graphic design contest for the next give away. This is beyond my ability :(

BTW Can we steal video clip from other resources(movie, tv show, cartoon, etc) and edit them for this, maybe then I can do something...

Like the other two said, the idea of getting clips from other resources will be... well, "copyright infringement" ( I have nothing better to describe it), but I do like your idea of a graphic design contest. We should have something like that, where you compete to make a new graphic for DealsPl or something like that.
