NYU Grad Film Fall 2021 -- Commercial as visual submission?


New Member
Hi! So, I'm completely new to film. Taking a risk and applying to the grad program after 8 years in advertising as a copywriter.

There's one national TV commercial (director's cut is over a minute long) I'm considering using as my visual submission but is that completely lame? The spot itself tells a story (with a 500 Days of Summer influence) and I had a hand in every aspect, from writing to production and post, etc. It's a legitimate production ($600k budget), but it's certainly far from a "film" in the traditional sense...

Let me know your thoughts. Thanks!
