Ugh, dammit. I didn't vote for the second part either, I missed it.

It is both wonderful and representative, I apologize. I would have chosen "Very Representative". I love it, it's very short, sweet, and to the point. It's great, actually.

Oh shit, I didn't see the second part either. I would have also chosen "very Representative". The video's awesome, I love it!

Damnit me too...very representative and very appealing. I mean the commercial would be well over an hour if you were to list all the benefits of EF along with a cut shot of all the sexual permutations of our community. Very well done.

Great video. ^^ I like all the different photos and sequencing, and that there were actual reviewers included.

I noticed one typo though, at ~1:23; after the 'gift registry' bit, it says "makes easy to get gifts you want" instead of "makes it easy."

The wording about the comparison feature is extremely awkward. It says something like "compare for better." Maybe a word was chopped off?

Also, I hate to be the dissenter but the overuse of the same effects is a bit irksome to me. I definitely feel like there's too much of it and it would be better suited to a shorter ad (the repetition).

Where will this be used?

I love the video! It's very well put together, and you definitely highlighted Eden Fantasys' best features!

Will this be an auto run video on the main page? I really really liked this. It was well put together and shows the great parts of the Eden Community.

I, too, am wondering where this video will be featured, since context affects how it will be perceived. Personally, I think it's too long. I got bored by the time it got to "gift registry". I feel like the same amount of information could be packed into a shorter amount of time without rushing things if some of the more flashy special effects are cut out or replaced with simpler transitions.

Also, depending on where this video will be shown, "Safety index" may be confusing to your average viewer. If I'd seen this video two years ago, before I'd ever heard of EF or owned my first sex toy, I would have been like, "Safety index? Are sex toys dangerous?!" I feel like "Materials Safety Index" might pinpoint it more.

Don't mind me, I'm just nitpicky today

Unfortunately, I couldn't get the video to load .. I waited and waited until it got to 100%, clicked play .. and got the first 15 seconds. The rest is just not cooperating - but it's no fault of you guys, it's just that I have dial-up at home (yes, there are still places with dial-up), and I can't view it from school or in a public wifi area because EF is filter-blocked in all those places.

So: the first few seconds I saw I liked, but I can't say that that's realistic of the whole video.

What I can say is that if you're planning on putting this somewhere where it will always load when you open the page, or on the homepage, you may want to (read: PLEEEEEEASSE!) put a 'skip' or 'stop' button on it so that people who live in the middle of nowhere and have crap dial-up won't have loading problems with the entire page.

so the '.' is my vote because it seemed appropriate ;p

I love that it shows actual members of the site! I also love that it (quickly) buffers enough before playing that it doesn't LAGGGGG!

The video hits on a lot of the strong points of Edens, but one of the biggest is missing- sexual diversity. Maybe I missed them, but I only saw one picture of a same sex couple. I watched it twice and had my husband watch it, he did not see any others either. The openness of Edens is one of it's biggest attributes and I think if you highlight that a bit more, it will be an excellent representation.

I'm like Miss Jane and still have dial-up and agree with putting a 'skip or stop' button on it.

I was able to see about 45 seconds in 15 second increments. What I saw was very well done and visually appealing.

I like it! But where is it going to be used. Perhaps it's me but I just feel the home page of EF is just getting too crowded overall. I recently directed someone to the forum and she said she couldn't find it. I checked...seems you have to poke around.
Like a walk in store, I don't want to be confronted with everything all at once, just too much stimulation (pun intended)!

You did a great job with the video and it does everything you want it to. Keep up the great work.

Very nice!

I think it'd be a good idea to toss in a picture of a package.. maybe someone holding one. Discreet shipping is one thing, but it's different to really see the package.

Also, a couple of the "makes easy" phrases sounded a little funny in my head.

I like this idea. "Discreet" is reassuring, but someone holding up a plain unmarked innocent looking cardboard shipping box is VERY reassuring.

Yes!

For the photo, I could fashion myself a sex-robot costume made from EF shipping boxes. A discreet sex robot.

I loved the video, it was great, the addition of actual reviewers was amazingly awesome, especially in the form of clips of video reviews. To me that made it seem so much more down to earth if that makes sense.

I voted somewhat appealing and somewhat representative. There is nothing false in the video but it seems like it would be for a company just starting. Eden has made so much improvement and is sophisticated and much more advanced than this video portrays. We are above the rest in this industry especially online, and I don't feel this captures that the best it could.

if this is just a rough draft/start. Looks great!

my impressions:

[The Good]
I like the rainbow and the graphic design with with the couple
I like the photos and vid of actual reviewers - although these could be visually brighter

[The Iffy]
a little long
the stock images and cutting seem a little too much like a powerpoint presentation
and take away from the core message - get good photos taken of real customers/reviewers

[Changes I'd Make Were It My Project]
Trust is THE number one issue. So I 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th what everyone was mentioning about the discrete packaging and make that a visual.

Most importantly I'd break it down into a series of vids covering themes under the "umbrella of trust."

30 sec videos concise videos by topic -- also you'd then be better able to test out which vids yielded the greatest results.

1. You can trust Eden Fantasys because of our discrete packaging (image of box maybe a sexy delivery man handing over a brown paper package? -- in the rain - she's under a pink or green umbrella?)

2. You can trust Eden Fantasys because we offer honest reviews from real people.

3. You can trust Eden Fantasys because we will educate you about toy material safety.

and the other viewpoints too -- you can make one for gay men, for BSDM, for lesbians, for the disabled, audio option for the deaf and really address each area of concern a particular demographic may have). I think it would be great to let the viewer/customer be able to self select what messages they'd like to see/hear.

(I also like the visual/semiotic metaphor of the umbrella in the graphic design element ... I think that could be a good reassuring metaphor that could be carried throughout the vids) Heck, if made green and pink Eden's Fantasys Umberellas I'd use one.

I'd also be interested in a short vid like "Why do I shop at Eden's Fantasys?"

for me:
1. the site isn't plastered with random porn stars
2. sweet product photos
3. holistic, playful, inclusive concept (Although I have to say, the flesh lite "the best part" banner grosses me out - it must be effective for it's audience though)

Ok, that's it. sorry to drone on a bit
