Make Us a Video - Win $100 iTunes Gift Card!
UPDATED: DEADLINE PUSHED BACK TO TUESDAY, MAY 19, 12PM!
Entering this contest counts as an entry in TiPb's Birthday Bash grand-prize draw for an Unlocked ColorWare iPhone 3G!
Hard as it may be to believe, not everyone in the ‘verse know about TiPb. Yet. Even some of our friends don’t really know us. That’s where we need your help. In the age of user generated content, in honor of our birthday, we need our users to generate us a little content! Namely:
-A TiPb-themed YouTube video intro
Introduce us to the world. Not the iPhone hardware — everyone knows about that already! — but the actual blog and forums, the places where we talk and share and rumor and rant.
Yep, just that simple. What teaser would we see before the big budget TiPb sci fi flick? What entrance video would we use before TiPb fights Brock Lesnar for the heavyweight title? What walkthrough would you present for the TiPb iPhone app? (Check out the awesome Birdhouse intro for the current high-bar on that!). How would you tell people to leave Britney alone… but come visit TiPb?! That’s the video we want to see!
Funny, spoofy, dramatic, goofy — just shoot it off your webcam, iSight, camcorder — whatever’s handy — upload it to YouTube, and make sure you include “the iphone blog” in the keywords. Then copy the URL and paste it in a reply to this thread.
We’ll check them out, love them all, and pick one to receive a big, honking $100 iTunes Gift Card thank you!

Yeah, I like free stuff, and a $100 iTunes card would be great, but this monkey won't be dancing for this one.
But why in the post did you only post a screenshot, instead of the original rant. I remember that video as being one of the things that really turned me on to this site. Why not embed the original video?
Can't wait to see what cool creations others come up with, though.

If one of my students turned in his work on time and I had to extend the deadline because no one else was ready, that one student would ask for extra credit.
So do I get extra credit for getting the video in before the original due date?

Here it is! I remade it. It's 100 times better than the original!
Check it out!

Alrighty, here's mine! This is the first time I've used Final Cut Express or a green screen. Had fun making it! Took forever though because I was learning the software at the same time. Hope you like it! (I know, I'm a dork) Make sure you watch in HD! - I wish the quality would've came out better, but I think there's some setting I screwed up in FCE... I'm still learning
