Default creating a new amiga commercial video

I`ve downloaded lots of videos and scanned prints of varoius Amiga commercials, mainly from Commodorebillboard.com. At that time I didn`t know exactly why do I need those, but few days later I`ve edited those into a quite good Amiga commercial video! And it took me just a couple of hours of work!

To make the long story short, I need some help of Amiga.org members and guests. I need LOTS of images and videos! Send me your video-taped amiga demos (grabbed and converted to avi or mpg, not smaller than 320x240), photos of your amiga, screengrabs of amiga programs in action, and ofcourse - your best work. the important thing is that all of those must be amiga-related. I also call for every living amiga-related company to send me their`s marketing stuff (that`s magazine publishers, hardware and software vendors, webamsters...)

I need all that stuff to complete the video i`ve started. the video already sports some old commercials and slogans, combined with appropriate music, resulting in very dynamic video footage (and yes, it says `turn off that win machine`). Estimated duration is about 3-4 minutes when done. I hope this won`t take much of your time and effort.

WHY AM I DOING THIS?
I always wanted to be a programmer but I don`t have the talent. This is the way for me to give something to the community. This video is not typical TV commercial and will not be created to be broadcasted anywhere; it`s only purpose is your viewing pleasure

Send your stuff to b.progressive@gmail.com
The top 5 uploaders (only quality counts!) will recieve complete full quality video on a CD via snail-mail, once it`s done. If the material is too large to be sent via e-mail, don`t be lazy and send via snail mail. Just ask for the address.

Sorry about bad English,
Ivan

Good luck with it.

Remember there's also Youtube (+ its clones) to help you disseminate the video. I look forward to seeing it.

Gee, where does one get the kind of equipment needed to produce a commercial?

How many of us programmers have powerful impressive Toasters that don't get any use!

@AMC258

This won`t be a $3 million production, but will be effective as one . If anyone is interested I`ll create a low-quality 10 seconds preview and put it online (just don`t know where yet)

All you need is some talent, a computer with some video editing software and a little bit of time.. You would also need some hardware to capture video with if you are going to also make the video from scratch.
