My impressions? Amazing production value Oleg...simply amazing. It was more like watching a feature film love story than something related to a wedding. It was nice to be able to understand the narrative language too :)

You're blessed to have:

1) couples that give you the freedom to create this kind of thing and;
2) the technical and creative expertise to pull it off.

One thing that caught my eye (or ear) was around the 2:10 mark. It sounded like the track finished and then it cut in again?

Again, well done.

Matt.

P.S. I loved the 'painting' of their faces with light.

Маtt, thank you for kind words.
Did some remix on the soundtrack to add to emotional flow of the story.

LOVE IT!

Top 25 All-Star Team next year! Book it!! You truly are a trend setter.

Just a question Oleg. How is this clip fitted into their Wedding Video? This is sort of a trailer to their full love story or is this what their love story? Do you get to present this at the reception for their guests?

I'm sure couple will love this. Keep up the great work.

Ram, thank you,
this short narrative film will be played at a wedding party on a large projection screen. it's another form of entertainment shown at a wedding. (I hope a meaningful one)

As far as being on a list, I guess some kind of recognition, is a good thing, if it helps to move forward to discover new horizon as an art form expression. It can also stall the movement.( Still don't know how it's figured out...)

Oleg, That was truly amazing, Everything was put together so nicely even the impressions on the BG acting it out were very well, you picked a perfect couple for that shoot.

finally we have something in English from you Oleg that we can understand :):), was that your voice ?

Great job as always !!!!!!!!!!!

Oleg, what I love about your work is that you have a defined style that is yours. Some great visuals and production value here. The narrative was great too.

I do think you could have shortened the piece by about 30 seconds and it would have been stronger. Near the end I felt it lost some momentum.

The kissing shot with the passing light was gold. Beautiful. Was that done with your own lighting or location lighting?

Michael, thanks a lot!

My voice is not that great, I have more of a Russian accent anyway :)
The voice belongs to the Groom, Richard, he is from England, lived in the US for some time.
Now works and lives in Russia(probably hard to pick his accent, I wonder if he sounds from a particular country)

Travis, thank you!
I've had a 100 wt Dedolight, blue gelled a bit, in the Subway as well as in those "painting" shots..

I agree with travis, I think it could have been a bit shorter.

All in all, still awesome awesome work. seriously quality stuff.

Santo, appreciate your comments!

It was shot with 5D, the lenses were Canon 85mm 1.2, Canon 28-300 IS (just one or two shots) and Nikkor 200mm F2.0
