    Should read- SpotFest Entry: Beautiful. The power of punctuation- my bad. This is my entry placeholder, sorry if I sounded like I was bragging!

    A while back I posted a BTS thread and I am happy to recognize some of the final entries from the thread. So while judging is going on I figured why not share some more BTS while we wait-

    Although I did not take a traditional approach to the assignment, I still had a lot of homework to do. I tested a number of bulbs and lighting set-ups while I was working out the final shot. A cool take-away is that since working on this project I am definitely being more recycling conscious before I toss something away.

    I do like how clean & clear this was. The exploration really paid off in the visuals, especially in the glass reflection. Very pro looking.

    That was different.
    SURE AS HECK gets your attention.

    Very focused. Very pro delivery.

    Unusual - but damn good.

    I love the simple boldness of this ad. I usually think of recycling in terms of the materials to be recycled, not energy, and that's a powerful message you illustrated. It's also an interesting juxtaposition to relate one recycled aluminum can to one day of a lightbulb. In addition to the visual interest of the filament, relating recycling to a traditional inefficient light source gives the message that much more power. That's a very clear message.

    I wanted to see something else visually interesting after panning past the filament but I don't know what that could have been. I don't know if panning from the base to the top may have been a better visual build up?

    The production details of the generator-like sound effect and blue reflections really sold the professional feel of this spot. The whole thing also makes me want to chew on some gravel, and that's a good thing.

    Great job!

    The argynebt wasn't persuasive. Alreedy incandescent bulbs are obsolete. It could have made a better case.

    Another entry that Joe hates! Such a surprise.
    I even had to google argynebt, and then google told me "did you mean argument?" And then I was like yeah google, you're so smart!

    I think it's great, bold and with an excellent execution.
    That Montesi guy is the real deal man, his voice is so powerful and I hear him on the TV all the time. My sound design teacher when I was in school mixed for Dateline NBC and I remember him talking lots of good stuff about him. His website is now officially in my bookmarks!
