Real People Ads Competition

Just noticed AR Ireland have posted up on FB Alfa Romeo Ireland | Facebook to vote for your favourite advert created by those in the real people comp...
Took me ages to track them all down....

Posted here so you can get to them quicker.
The ad | |Alfa Romeo Real PeopleAlfa Romeo Real People
The Ad – ‘No Ordinary Escape’ | |Alfa Romeo Real PeopleAlfa Romeo Real People
And Finally, The Ad | |Alfa Romeo Real PeopleAlfa Romeo Real People
Giulietta The Ad. - Alfa Romeo Real PeopleAlfa Romeo Real People
Alfa Romeo Giulietta – The Advert | |Alfa Romeo Real PeopleAlfa Romeo Real People
GIULIETTA ADVERTISEMENT | |Alfa Romeo Real PeopleAlfa Romeo Real People

2 stand out for me, but to be honest I was disappointed no-one looked to pull in an old Giulietta and harp on about DNA

Good work Rik, I was looking for them earlier.

For me, Therese and Clare's videos are the best shot and edited. I like what Alan McNamee did with his one though, nice to have a bit of humour.

I think Claires one was the best put together and I liked the nods to Uma Thurmans films/characters...

Fair enough Rory... you could just use my opinion if that suit you so.. it'll save you a lot of time... (fast connection @ work helps too)

Have to say though, all the ads were well made.. some good talent out there.

One of my favorite clips was the one made by Johnathan some during summer of 2011...very well made imo. For those that didn't see it here it is:

Cathal you have crushed my world, was really looking for some humor and the play on words Alfa / A1pha, very very hard to tell a story in 30 secs and also be original at the same time, I had enough footage for a full feature. If you smiled when watching it I have done my job. And we all know Alfa drivers are the most sophisticated!

thanks

Alan

Hey Alan..... I'm only having a bit of craic.. sorry.. I have to admit you made a video that I wouldn't know where to even begin! It's easy to be a critic I guess when you think the video owner is not looking.....

.......... I'm trying to seriously back-peddle here..... help me out lads I'm desperate.!

No need to back peddle absolutely no offense taken, my hurt was fake, making a video was a very steep learning curve, the editing is the hardest part.

Only spotted this thread now. Some cool vids done. The one by the Grand Canal theater is class, I'd love to go there for a few pics with a load of alfas but I doubt you'd be able to stay there long before security came along lol.
