I hope you enjoy.

haha, man that was really funny.

It looked nice too...a little soft, I couldn't tell if that was from the compression or not. Great job!

The oval mask in some of the opening shots is a bit too aggressive. Pull it back out and soften the edges a bit more.

The motion overlay of the rings during the vows kind of says 'cheesy effect'. I would take it out. The background motion effects at the ending montage are much nicer and they don't distract the viewer at that point.

The 'old film look' is another mis-placed effect. It doesn't work because by looking at the rest of the video, you can see that 'this shot' takes place at the same day and time. This would have been a good effect if you were doing a history of the couple and had some childhood VHS video to cut into the story but not for a brief shot in current day. Since the couple are kissing in this shot, a slo-mo would help enhance the romantic moment they are sharing.

A couple pan and tilts were not at steady pace but that's just practice and a much more expensive tripod head. That's why good ones will cost you more than what you paid for the camera. They are fluid dampened and have counterbalance springs that will make those camera moves silky smooth.

All in all, a good job and certainly one that can be made better with a few changes. The basic camera work with shot selection, angle, and exposure are there so you have some good material to edit with.

That's just my opinion and others may dis-agree so don't take it as gospel. I only pointed out those things that distracted me as a viewer.

im thinking the same thing. over-used graphics=cheeze! nice use of soft focus/filter, the lighting at the cremony is incredible! i too shoot weddings and lighting is the hardest thing at these events. way to keep the color/exposure right in the hous aroung the windows.
any special techniques?
nice over all!

By "people in the business" I don't know whether you mean "people in the video business" or "clients," but keep in mind the only thing that's important is what the customer wants. It's irrelevant what we, the so-called "experts," prefer.

If you like something and your customers don't, either you are in the wrong biz or the wrong demographic.

Pretty cool. I liked the handheld looking shot the best. I would change the focus to the phone a little sooner though, like right when it rings and hold it til right after she sees who's calling and smiles.

That M2 seems like it does a nice job. Which lens did you use with it?

LOL! Awesome! I had to watch it twice to get all the references. Concept is great Stephen. Music is perfect with it, too. Well done.

Overall you did a decent job. It looks clean and the style is simple. I would have upped the contrast a bit and maybe put in some colour variation to make the video look more cinematic, but overall you did a good job. I might have made it a bit longer, maybe with some small talk that people want to say that would make it a bit more interesting.

Something technical wise to note, beware of the TV safe zones. I am not %100 sure of this topic, but there is a restricting zone on how far you can put important video footage, such as text on a video. So, the edges of your opening logo might get cropped off and the text 'Wintersum Rock & Roll Festival' might get the edges cropped off as well. Read here for more information about what I am talking about.
