"Straight to NO.1"!
Oleg Kalyan Oleg Kalyan is offline August 26th, 2009, 04:01 AM

Been extremely busy with work, have not posted here or elsewhere recently. Going to catch up with with that, share some latest.
Also getting ready for a ReFrame, which is a big responsibility, hope to show variety of work that is a bit different, not duplicating myself (to a degree :) or my colleagues around the world!

Cheers, Let me kno what you think of wedding film promo, "Straight to NO.1", (a bit crazy but lots of fun :)

a bit re-edited B version

Straight to No.1 :) B edit By Oleg Kalyan On ExposureRoom

Richard, thank you, some Russian friends say, perhaps I shouldn't put the friends song live performance into the mix.. What do you think?

well that is strange you ask that.... when i first watched it, i could not for the life of me work out if that was an official pre-recording of the song, or a live recording...it sounded too good to be live, but also looked too 'real' to be dubbed/mimed! Either way, it was very clever, and I say leave it as it is.

oh....THAT bit :)

ok, i'll be REALLY honest with you.... i thought you left it in because lets face it, it would be brilliant for the people involved to watch back...but to other viewers, it was the only shot that seemed too prolonged, and with un-matching audio levels to the rest of it

other than that, the clip was flawless and i loved it!

Richard, thank you, kept it that way, bad acoustics, poor audio, and you know singing...
from the heart :)
the link has changed due to a bit of re edit, cc.

thanks everyone for watching.

Fantastic editing and amazing energy. Some extra color work would put this over the top for sure.

As for the guys singing, that's a tough call. I got the impression that the bride didn't find it as humorous as the groom, but the groom was laughing hysterically. In some ways, it was a bit of a nice break in the energy, kind of like how you have a slowdown during a feature film. It allowed you to end with a bang without that feeling that the piece was too intense.

I guess I'd say leave it in, unless the bride really didn't enjoy that moment. It was hard to tell from her expressions, but it seemed like she wasn't into it.

Absolutely sick job Oleg. That was quite an edit. Your really fine tuning your style. The section with the guys singing was absolutely hysterical. The only thing I did not like which is not operator nor editor fault was the jello happening in some unsteady shots, and a few whips. It's a fair trade for great looking footage in the 5D. Thanks for sharing

Travis, thanks a lot for feedback, I know it was a tough call, as well as some other things!
The energy of the guys and the wedding overall was fantastic, I guess the guys from London have that unique sense of humor :)

Ken, appreciate the comment!

Monday, thanks buddy! I know, there is a trade off when using 5d for dynamic shots, well it was worth it though... Canon, make another camera without rolling shutter!! SOON!! :))

Wow, Oleg,

That was just awesome. I'm quite envious at your ability to shoot, edit, and produce something that looks so great, and is so polished. Hats off to you.

I thought it worked great, but was just too long. Just the first two lines would do it, cause they lose the energy in the second half anyway.

Can I fly out and be your assistant at the next one? Hehe...

Amazing work!

Кen, thanks a lot!

Vitto, appreciate your comments, encouragment!
I see your point. The reaction was different from different people in this scene. Katya for sure didn't quite know how to react :) ...a live moment which I 100 love and try to find in all my work, truthful expression, bits of spontaneity.

Welcome to Moscow, fly today, tomorrow I shoot a wedding in Moscow with... Jerry Ghionis :) !
in need of an assistant! If it's too late, come to ReFrame, I will talk a lot about spontaneous work in weddings.
_______

If anyone wants to drop a line in my livejournal, it'd be great!
???? ?????? - ????. - "Straight to No.1".. ? promo for Richard&Katya wedding film.
