My New Favorite Highlights Montage
Joe Simon Joe Simon is offline December 16th, 2008, 09:27 AM

Sometimes you just get a wedding that is awesome! The couple, the venue, the weather and everything else is just perfect. They get the right package and you can really give it all you got! Well I had this couple back in May. I posted there Trailer a month or so ago( http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/wedding-e...g-trailer.html )

I just love the way everything came out! I really put my heart and soul into this edit, working hard on the storytelling and making sure the music really moved the piece. Let me know what you guys think.

Patrick - Thanks for your compliments. I'm glad we are slowing progressing and getting better at what we do over here! I have to agree with you that the gradient is a bit much. When I originally did it I thought it was awesome, but after going back and watching it I could see it was over done. Can't wait to meet you at ReFrame.

Richard - Thanks!

Karim - The circle kiss shot was done with the Glidecam 2000 pro(using it handheld). The Glidecam is one of many camera stabilization tools you can buy. Other popular models are - Glidecam 4000 pro, Steadicam Merlin and the Steadicam Flyer. It takes lots of practice to master these tools, but once you do you get amazing results! Good luck.

Hey Joe, after reading all the responses to your video, I kept this thread open all week just waiting for a decent internet connection so I could stream it. Just checked it out and I think it's beautiful piece of work. You weren't kidding about the great weather.

Your couple is very lucky!

Wow great job the pacing, color, & compostion rocked. Great story telling and I have to admit the vows brought a well of emotion while watching. You should be proud and I am sure they loved it!

Thanks guys.

Luke - I encode my web content with QuickTime Pro with the H.264 codec. I used Magic Bullet Looks to CC my work. The best advice I could give you is practice. With all methods of color correction it takes time and practice to achieve the looks you want.

Raymond, Serge, Curtis - Thanks for checking it out! I really loved the way this came out. The couple's vows were really powerful and that just helped pull the story along.

Darn Joe, I've been trying to load this vid for a couple of weeks now but I really have problems with exposure room.

Any chance this is in Vimeo?

Merry Christmas Joe!

Hey Joe - at the risk of being repetitive, I thought the clip was really well done as well. I liked the change in pacing with the introduction of the new song about 1/2 way through the piece and thought that the amount of nat. audio was perfect.

I agree with a few others that the "over-blue" and "yellow-ish" tints to some of the shots (particularly in the sky) seemed a little too much but it's a small thing. I also didn't notice the Brevis shots in the piece until I read your post and saw you mentioned it. What lens/lenses were you using?

Again though, great job and thanks for sharing!
