Golly. I’ve really done it now.
This little project started last fall, after the “Back to the Mac” Apple event. I collected a few Apple product videos, scoured YouTube for the highest quality PowerPC-era Mac commercials I could find – even asked Twitter where to find good, high-res files.
But I made do. And so here it is: a goofy, super geeky take on “Return of the Mack” – dropping the “k” of course.
What I like is that Apple videos make their machines fly – lots of swooping and dramatic angles and shadows. Tons of product rotations. All (except for the PowerMac G5 vid) against a brilliant white background.
For variety, I threw in some random stuff like the chip manufacturing shots. And some Apple reps doing some bad lip syncing.
Anyway. Glad to be done with it. It’s nothing like a pro job: there are still little hints of YouTubeness and window frames in there. But it’s just a fun little music video for us Macintosh geeks.
