Groom prep clip
Vito DeFilippo Vito DeFilippo is offline March 13th, 2009, 11:09 AM

Hey all,

Here's a groom prep clip that is a departure for me. The groom wanted to lip sync a bit to a particular song ("A toi" by Eric Lapointe). This changed completely how I would usually approach this section, so it was interesting to me. There's a short intro with no music, then the music section which I cut completely out of order.

Anyway, any comments always welcome:

There's a bit of French dialogue, but nothing serious....

hard to wrap my self aroudn the mood of the lyrics, but the guitars tell me some of the mood. The groom obviously was havign some fun with that and had lots of smiles.

One technical comment. I could seen a bit of the lens hood & elbow in the mirror lip-synch shot. Those mirrors are tricky to film aren't they? :-)

other than that, the filming was fun to watch. you mixed up the camera angels a bit and it looked good (I need to try something other than dutch roll reveals to level or plain level shots).

Vito!

It was well done, I thought, great documentary feel at the beginning, would have loved it to keep on that "look and feel" through!
Solarization or similar look, not my cup of tea, and the music track seemed to me a little "big" for the piece.

Actually, I put cameras, photographers, etc in the frame on purpose. fairly often I feel such a large part of the day is the process of being filmed and photographed, that there should be some peripheral acknowledgement of that. I know others avoid that like the plague, but to each his own.

You know, over a year ago Michael Nistler (also on DVINFO) pointed out to me that almost all my shots were at shoulder level, and that I should mix it up a bit. At his suggestion, I bought "Advanced Broadcast Camera Techniques" by John Cooksey. Since then, I've really changed the way I shoot and it's made a big difference.

It's that kind of thing that makes me post here. Beyond the sense of community and the pleasure it brings, you learn so much.

Thanks again, Michael, if you're out there! And thanks, James for taking the time to watch and give me feedback.

Hi Oleg,

Thanks for your feedback. I think you are trying to get a more documentary feel with your work as well? I remember you posted something not long ago (which I enjoyed greatly) that emphasized that.

Agreed. I hated it that I would get to a fairly big power chord in the song, and the only shots I had left were the groom having photos taken with his mom or something. But that's life. We're so short of time on these shoots that it's hard to get directed footage to fit a mood or a song.

The effects were something I rarely do, but fun once in a while. It only works for me with particular songs.

All the best!
