Amazing 5 Minute Commercial Shows a School Day in 1 Take

Update: Looks like the video was taken down due to a copyright claim. You can watch it here.


This is more related to filmmaking than photography, but it’s so creative that I just had to share: Gatorade recently released this 5 minute commercial featuring professional skateboarder Chaz Ortiz. What’s mind-blowing is that it captures the passing of a school day in one take. Any mistakes (e.g. Ortiz failing to land a trick) would have ruined the entire shot.

Beautiful Commercial from Nikon’s “I AM NIKON” Campaign

Nikon has been doing a pretty good job with its “I AM NIKON” advertising campaign in Europe — so good, apparently, that one Flickr user went as far as to get the slogan tattooed on her forearm. Too bad Nikon chose to run Ashton Kutcher commercials in the US instead of these ads…

In case you’re wondering, the song used is Welcome Home by Radical Face.

Nikon D5100 Commercial with a Twist

Nikon is running a new “Man of Action” commercial starring Ashton Kutcher in the US that features the same “twist” as the Olympus PEN commercial we shared in the middle of 2010. Sorry for the out-of-sync audio (let’s just pretend it’s dubbed).
