A New Kind of Wedding Video

This is my first time doing a wedding video. I am a high school student and did this for a family friend for free. I of course did the traditional parts, the full length two-camera ceremony, interviews with family and friends, and a reception summary video that I may post later.

But for the overall summary of the day, I wanted to do something fun for them. Everyone who's seen this so far has absolutely loved it, but I'd like to get your opinions too.

Here it is:

Maybe it's just me, but I'm missing the "new kind" bit?

Congratulations on taping your first wedding !

Now maybe it's just semantics but I'm curious too on what is the "new kind" of wedding video you're wanting to draw our attention to ?

Well by 'new kind' i just meant that it wasn't the traditional wedding recap video, mainly because of the music choice. Other than that though there's nothing really 'new' about it haha.

Marketing is everything! :)
Personally, I was hoping to see a 3D wedding myself...

The funny thing is that the bride was beaming in the first shows like Toni Collette in Muriel's Wedding where the same song is playing. I thought that may be the "new kind" of wedding video -- a shot by shot remake of the scene. :)

Not a bad effort for a young first-timer. I've seen much worse from people who charge for their time. That being said, if you decide to do another one, invest in a fluid-head tripod and keep yer' Red-Bull drinking hands off the camera as much as possible. The jitters are a sure giveaway of an amateur shoot. For reception footage, you really need to use a light...its another dead giveaway between the amateurs and the pros.

Its a fun career if you decide to make a go of it. Good luck in either case.

Really? That's funny. I've never seen that before I'll have to check it out sometime. :)


On the Tripod - For the ceremony the back camera was an XL2 on a Bogen 501hdv and the front camera was an HV30 on a cheap tripod. Usually the front camera is handheld but in this case (being a wedding) it was on that cheap tripod. But I am going to buy a better tripod for the XL2 and use the 501 on the HV30.

Any recommendations as to a tripod I could get for the XL2? I'm hoping to spend a couple hundred on a used one which would be better than buying new on the same budget.

Thanks. :)
