Hi everyone. Thought i'ed try a same day edit. I work alone so this was a crazy day for me. The couple are friends of mine and i only told a couple of people i was thinking of trying it. they told everyone! :) so i had to do something.
I bought a dell xps during last week. I had my main cam, a Z1 and i have a hv30 which i use in the ceremony as a second cam. This was also my capture cam during the day.
First problem was i only had a two hour battery for the hv30 which i had plugged in during the ceremony thinking it would hold the charge as i was going to capture the first tape of the preps in my van while i shot other stuff and went to the hotel. It died about 10 minutes after i plugged it out. So i had to wait to get to reception at 4pm before i captured the first tape.
The couple went the bar after the church which gave me bout a half hour to get the other tapes in the right spots before capturing. Photo-shoot was next in the hotel, the last shot was the couple entering the room before the meal.
This gave me bout 1 hour 15 min to capture the last shots, set up my stuff and start the edit. I had the song picked and some laid out in different places to help me.
I quite rough around the edges and there a lots of flaws, Steadicam shots, and a bit of dirt that got on the lens for two shots. I also didn't get a chance to look at the coloring either.
I was played on two big screens in the function room after the speeches and the crowd loved it. It was quite a buzz!!
