Bank Ad Shot With iPhone 5. Still Boring
If this Allied Irish Bank ad were just in the usual fashion with some expensive camera, it wouldn't be news. But because it was shot using an iPhone 5, suddenly it's a big deal. But that can't change the fact the ad is still a boring bank ad.
The spot is simple landscape imagery shot from a moving train. Not that there's anything wrong with landscape shots but the ad isn't really all that captivating.
Of the work, Rothco Creative Director Damian Hanley said, "It was a big decision to shoot the ads on the iPhone. But once we did some preliminary tests, we knew that they were able to deliver high quality footage." Via.
