It’s one thing to read about utopian use cases for the Windows 7 and Windows Live ecosystem, but nothing beats watching real people putting it into use to create something amazing.
From the same director of the recently popular Blu-ray PC vs Mac ad, Keith Rivers also produced and directed this 2:30min spot featuring the entire family of Microsoft’s consumer offerings – Windows 7, Windows Live Essentials 2011, Skydrive, Office Web Apps and Windows Phone 7.
According to Keith, who was a fan of this up and coming musician Andrew Belle, this commercial documentary/music video for the song was very much inspired by real events that occurred over a matter of weeks in September this year. Shot with a Canon 5Dmk2 complimented with a great soundtrack, the ad looks and sounds drop dead gorgeous. It’s a pretty compelling story too.
For the icing on the cake, you can actually download the featured song “Sky’s Still Blue” from Microsoft.com or get it on Zune Marketplace for free. Andrew just earned himself a new fan.
Update: The original Vimeo video has been removed for some reason, I’ve embedded a copy from Microsoft’s website.
