I really enjoyed that, I particularly love the whole picture vs motion picture concept and how you took those wonderful shots and made them come alive.

The feel was very cinematic, your shots backed this up. What steadicam were you using as I noticed a bit of shake, looks like from your footsteps.

Very solid all round.

terrific, I love the name and how you 'sell' the idea of the moving image - I really enjoyed it.

Thank you guys, appreciate all the comments. The steadicam that I use is merlin. Thats probably why the shake happened. Sometimes its just too heavy to hold when I'm doing a swipe and I think the merlin already got a bit overused, its rock n rolling sometimes. I need to send it to be serviced.

PS: I love mintyslippers's reel. I'm gonna use that song for one couple's prewedding film to be shot next two weeks.

Hi Susanto,

Thats a really nice compilation of shots that you have put together with good music to compliment the visuals. A good eye for the creative shots, although I did notice the glidecam was not as smooth as it could have been in a few shots. That did not really detract from the overall piece for me.

Very nice.

Cheers,

John De Rienzo

Wow! Above all else you're clearly a remarkable 'storyteller'. You're 'unfolding' script is a magical combination of beautiful cinematography, brilliant editing, a lovely musical score and careful reaction to it and judicial use of special effects and mechanical assists.

I envy your skillset, your eye and your obvious passion for telling a story worth seeing.

Love the use of the text and the still frames unfreezing at the beginning. A couple of the slow motion shots were a little jittery to me but overall it's a very strong piece. I'd hire you :)

Terrific video! One question though... how do you get along well with still photographers? You seem to be exactly where a photographer wouldn't want you to be at the precise moment. Do you go ahead and get what you need to get by stepping in front of a photographer, or do you talk with the photographer about positions beforehand?

First off.... wow!

I expected another "demo" but you have a very unique way to introduce your service which is had to do now days!

I'll just point out some of the things I though were completely cool, original, and stood out.

As noted already, the color pass effect combined with "picture vs movie" was a great way to demonstrate how moving pictures add depth to a scene unlike any other medium.

The musical score was fantastic.

I liked the combination of glideing / flying around all the different couples. A good idea that I have been working on myself! My problem is I only have footage on the glidecam from two couples so far, but once I had about 4 I was planning on doing something very similar where shots are combined from all of them into one reel.

The lineup of the bridal party where they duck out of the way was a great shot (2:20)! Very creative!
