    Anyone else filming already? I started collecting footage last week. I'm thinking of trying something new. In years past we have ran 2 commercials through the season. Same footage cut differently with different dialogue. This year I want to do something similar for t.v., something spooky to remind people that it's halloween, but I want to add a series of web commercials that grab the attention of those who may not be so into halloween, but still like live theatrics. Be they funny, cute, quirky, whatever. I put one together in my attic, starring my creepy 3-year-old (and myself as the victim). This cost nothing to film and it was completed in under 48 hours including scene and costume design. Click Here

    Has anyone done anything similar? Good reaction? Waste of time?

    Great commercial on a shoestring budget. The only thing I'd do differently is keeping your child in black and white throughout the first part of the commercial. When the clip got to seconds 7-9 it ruined the moment because the audience saw she was just a kid with red stuff on her. If you keep it in black and white during that part it'll keep up the suspense. Having that last part in color was fine. Good luck and let us know how it turns out.

    For a tv commercial to get my attention it has to have something strange or different about it, this would also make it more re-watchable for me as well.
    Our local car dealer made numerous strange commercials that did ellict one's attention and they were funny!
    Of course all humor is risk, you risk not being funny or offending someone.
    In one commercial he was going nutty slapping his bumper stickers all over everything, the grand finale was when he slapped one on a woman' s butt! "OOPS!"
    In another one they were prending that his wife was very angry with him and he was ducking, hiding running around to stay away from her, this was funnier than it sounds here.
    I think if you take the time and spent your money to make humor or to entertain your potential customers that they do realise this and will be (usually) favorably impressed and when this happens they will probably be remembering who you were and what your message was about.

    EXCELLENT! loved it actiondeath! very nice. Are you running that on local TV? Hope so, that will get peoples attention!

    Alot of people dont realize how cheap tv commercial advertising is! The expensive part is getting the commercial made and formated for broadcast. (thats why we make ours so affordable!)

    Without making this into a plug, if anybody has custom footage or ideas for a commercial, e-mail us and we can make it a reality! Thats our specialty!
