The All Brevis Wedding // What an experience
Patrick Moreau Patrick Moreau is offline December 18th, 2008, 11:20 AM

We just got back from Mexico where we shot, what we believe to be, the first all brevis wedding. We had one rig on a steadicam and two hand held rigs. We brought along some top secret gear soon to be released and shot the ceremony with a couple 70-200s.

You can see a full write-up on our blog here as well as the highlights clip: Dear 5D MK11: Start Your Engines // Training too?

We are considering flying Dennis from Cinevate down to Toronto and doing a round table discussion about the impetus for the shoot, the challenges we came across, how this will change our work moving forward, and how other can implement these techniques. We would then cut this in with some behind the scenes footage and make more of an educational piece out of it. I would love to know who would be interested in seeing something like this as it would be quite of time invested, but if we get enough interest we will certainly put it together.

Comments, questions, critique about the shoot are certainly welcome as well.

Hi Andrew,

No problem at all. I am sure many others have done this as well to some extent. I think what we have done is a first to the extent that we did it. In other words, our coverage and style was the same as it normally was, it was just shot all brevis. Most studios who do something similar either fly bare cam, shoot with less cams, avoid any motion in their shots- or in general change their shooting style as a result of their adapters. I think the clip itself is a testament to what we accomplished, and while some don't feel it is our best work, the overwhelming majority certainly does, as does Konrad, Michael, and I.

It is great to hear you've been bringing adapters into the mix for a while. I would love it if you could send me a sample privately (as to not get the thread off topic).

We try to avoid canned looks like MB as much as possible to keep things original and to get the maximum amount of flexibility.

Cool someone else has the same work flow as me, I get asked numerous times, what MB preset did I use? two things about that question, I don't use presets and I don't use it. Some rare cases I use it for non wedding work for some image enhancement but even then totally custom make my own look, anyways I tell so many people its better to nut out and learn about colour grading because it makes editing so much easier, helps decide what look to go for and helps shooting too.

Seems like some think MB is the thing that magically (no pun) colour grades the footage using presets, but I think it simply will look like what everyone else uses which is the problem with presets.
