I appreciate the minimalist approach, but I didn't find it very riveting. the images didn't capture my attention. I wasn't sure on the length either.

Still love it!

Hi, sorry, I posted my post right before you post the link.

I've watched it and my "guess" comments wasn't far off.

My only critique would be that it was kinda too long and the pilot shots is losing its "wow" over time. extreme shots was beautiful though. I'm sure the bride will be very happy seeing this.

so.. still.. LOVE IT!!

Santo

Thanks

Santo , your right ive noticed that too , maybe cutting the song or fading it out shorter will make it better. What do think about the color corection through MBL, not sure about it. Any suggestion or stick to the natural colors. Thanks sorry about d missing link

I think the color is great! can't go wrong with that.

shortening it will work wonders and have a much greater impact.

don't love your steadi shots too much.. just get rid of them!!! hahaha

I know the feeling of wanting to put every steady shots in the piece.. I'm that kinda guy.. but now I'm learning to just pick 1 out of 5.

Got it

Im not that fun with steadicam anyway, theyre heavy and have to wear that SWAT VEST. So no choice 45 minutes of carrying that thing and only 1 steadyshot to put in is nothing but adding insult and injury to my back. Hehehe letus shots still rule... Any other comments welcome

Ricci,
It was pretty good but for me there were a couple of things that kind of got to me.
One it was too long I would cut the song by about 1 minute or 1:30-also, IMO there were too many shots of the photog working, some of the steadicam shots were a bit wobbly and finally the freeze frames of the bride that you turned didn't do anything for me.
Now having said all that, overall it was nicely done but I think it could be tightened up a bit.

thanks don

I know, shorten it a little bit. Maybe a different song. The video was actually made for the photographer so i have to put some still shots and spiral it a little bit. But otherwise i like your observation and comments. Thanks don

I enjoyed the work but I have to agree with the other comments made about length and too much steadicam. It's forgivable though.

Was that a real bride on her wedding day? because it really didn't seem like she was very happy, nor was there anyone else around, she also gave "modeling looks" alot.

just curious.

Overall, some very nice work.

Shorter duration will make it more effective, both for your client the photographer, and for you.

Lots of good Steadicam operating. Loved the low mode stuff. I think the biggest weakness in the Steadicam work was not "too much" of it, but the seeming lack of purposefulness of some of it. In other words, more of the shots should "land" somewhere. The shot should lead you to a destination (in most cases the bride), and hold a lockoff. As it is, too many of the shots just feel like they're cut off in the middle....we're being led somewhere but never get there. Also, watch your headroom, and slow down sometimes.

You could also smooth some of the transitions with dissolves. Dissolves are often overused, but if you use a few, they can be a welcome and effective variation.

My 2 cents...
