Hey all,

Just hoping to get some feedback on this before it slips completely off the radar here... anyone?

Hi Bill,
I like simplicity and this hit the spot. Short and to the point and it told the story and IMO that's what the 'love story' should do. If showing it at the reception I'm sure it'll be a hit.

Thanks Don, I sincerely appreciate the feedback! Your perceptions are correct - I was going for a very simple look with mostly static shots that let the subjects provide the motion. I also tried to pay close attention to the music with the piece, intercutting the interviews and working to make it flow while still providing actually quite a bit of interview time over the music.

Things I still want to do better with: 5D focus and color correction and grading.

Hey Bill,

Since you're looking for feedback.

I love the opening shot with the pillars, but the first shot of Katie looks super 8 (washed out, blown out, and pretty soft) which is ok if that's what you're going for but it didn't seem to match any other shots in the piece. The shot (at 00:56) where the couples come together with flowers is also a little blown out (to get detail in the subjects), and I just think you might have found a better setting for that shot. It's much better when you reverse the angle at 2:23.

All in all a nice job though and I'm sure the couple will love it.

Thanks for the replies, everyone!

Brendan, yes, that's Centennial Park - and yes, that song is getting overused! LOL! That's what she wanted, of course. :)

In response to Ken's comments, I did tweak that shot of Katie to look 8mm-ish - it works okay but the reason I did that was because the original shot was out of focus.... grrrr. That's what I was saying when I said I need to work on 5D focus. I would swear that shot was in focus on Katie when I did it! (how many times have we all said that??? ;) And yes, there are a couple of blown out shots, not terrible but I probably could do more to tweak them and improve the look - good catch.

Overall I'm really pleased with this - I feel it really captures them very well and the clip really can make you smile, which I like. :)
