Brand New Promo Video & my first Wedding Highlight Video
Jason Robinson Jason Robinson is offline January 2nd, 2009, 03:38 PM

This week has been crazy. Prep for my first bridal show, cutting a company high energy Promo, designing a new company logo with my graphics guy as well as a flier handout for the show, some company branding work, and to top it all off a last minute Wedding Highlights edited from 11pm Thur till 7am this morning. This is my first ever Highlights Video, something I hope to be very popular this year. Incidentally, the song used in the Highlight was also the last dance song for my wedding, just a few short years ago. That might explain why I've been humming it for a week solid and decided to finally succumb to my own desire to use it in an edit.

The large version of the promo video is here (52MB) and a slightly more dialup-friendly version is also available (38MB).

Here is the full size Wedding Highlights video (129MB) and the smaller version (15MB)

Note that there is a few second gap in the large version because, for no apparent reason, Vegas didn't grab the media file I had reversed (but it got all the clips that were played forwards) when I did this network render last night. The smaller version should have it correct. I'll be fixing that and a few other errors before I burn this for the show.

As always, feedback is welcome. This is two brand new typs of videos, so I pushed my comfort zone significantly on these. I don't know how "elegant" the promo could be considered, because I designed it to be nothing but great shots for use in a bridal show tomorrow. The music is far far edgier than I would use in a normal video production, but I think it shows pretty good flexibility.

Here is to hoping these help bring in the clients and more than cover the $2500 I've spent in the past 3 weeks on advertising, design, and printing. As I mentioned in other posts, this is the make or break moment for my business. Hopefully it is the former. At least I'll be able to say I brought my A game.

First day of wedding show down. One remaining. I'll post the actual finished versions of these clips once I have time to render them (like tuesday when I wake up from a two day hibernation to catch up on sleep).

The movies are quite large and download is slow. You might want to consider Vimeo.

Hey Jason,

How was the wedding show? Were you able to generate enough business? I am doing commando style marketing this year, I'll go door to door on every Flowershop, BridalShop in my area.

I've got a separate post in the works about my first Wedding show.

Any comments on the videos; Promo and the Highlights?

I like the promo video and the fact that you emphasized the difference between a home made video as against a video done by a pro. I apologize if I overlooked the video review right now I am in marketing mode & wanted to know how the Bridal Show went.

Anyway I look forward to seeing your post about the show.
