    ***UPDATE***

    Oh well, it was a valiant effort - and an expensive one at that. "Sometimes you get the bear, sometimes the bear gets you."

    Anyway, YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME!

    A HUGE THANK YOU TO ALL THE PINSIDERS WHO VOTED FOR ME (Especially Crashdance22 & spfxted)

    Long live Pinside & long live Pinball!

    -------------------------------------------------------------

    Greetings fellow Pinside Pinball fantatics!

    So BMW USA is holding a contest to see who can make the best 6 second commercial...yes, six seconds. "Why?" You might ask? Well, the new 3-series goes 0 to 60mph in 5.9...pretty clever idea. At least in my opinion.

    So I made a video.

    and...

    As it turns out, I'm a FINALIST.

    They picked the Top 30 videos out of about 1,500. I was one of them! Ha! I see a TZ in the future

    *If you feel lead* - help me out by VOTING for my Video by visiting this link and clicking the VOTE button at the bottom left:

    http://www.youtube.com/BMWUSA?x=us_showcase2_4985_30

    Share it on your Facebook wall by clicking the "F" symbol at the bottom right if you feel lead. SHARE IT ANYWAY YOU CAN! The video with the most votes wins the competition!

    You can VOTE once a day until April 9th! Thank you so much!

    - Alex (IndianaPwns)

    Hmm didn't work in chrome for me had to use firefox. Watching the videos it seems like you are the only one who knows how to fadeout sound. Very nicely done.

    Haha! Thanks. That old Shift-Apple-T in Final Cut does a video nicely.

    A second vote, sir! Personally I think these are the toughest competitors:

    » YouTube video

    » YouTube video

    » YouTube video

    » YouTube video

    Though they aren't all in 1080p, or use native progressive video content. Really? I can actually see the scanlines in the one of the drawing! Alex, yours looks like the only one that would actually fool me into thinking it is a real BMW commercial. That is an excellent way to appease their judges. It's the most professional by far.

    Yes! His is the only one that looks like an actual ad! I'm a filmmaker...nice job Indiana!

    Alex what filmmaking tactics did you have in mind with this video? Is simpler better? Is showing the BMW logo at the end significant? What factors do you think make your video stand out from the others?

    I have voted a couple times, great work on yours. Where did all the entrants get footage of the car?

    I think simpler is ALWAYS better given that amount of time. Wait...are you interviewing me? lol

    Nah. He already had one because the judges watched his Price is Right video and saw that he's a winner.

    Now all you have to do is beat this guy's 10,000+ views:

    » YouTube video

    At 6,119 in under 3 days you're off to a good start! More views than most of the competition. If everyone who posted in this thread voted once a day, you'd be in good shape. Come on, we need more participants! Can we make this a sticky or something?
