"Shane & Stacy Trailer" | Serendipity Studios

The inspiration for this preview trailer came at the very end of the wedding night. We had already packed up and I had just started the engine when I noticed the clouds gliding past the brilliant full moon. It was breathtaking, and I knew I had to capture it. We spent 30 additional minutes filming to get the perfect shot.

A few days later, when I started editing the preview trailer, I knew I wanted to incorporate that shot because it was such a fitting symbolic end to the couple's wonderful day. I hope you enjoy it as much as they did.

Eugene, it's automatic. If you post with a vimeo link, the forum embeds the video.

Travis good stuff - not sure either about the coloring but as was said you carried it through so my eyes kind of got tuned to it after the opening shots. A couple of shots held too long for me (:035 -:042 for one). Overall good creative shots though. Nice use of glidetrack and steadicam without overdoing it. Nice work!

Cool clip Travis.
I only feel CC is a little overdone (but that's very subjective).

What was the significance of the shot that starts on the wall and reveals a car across the street? I see some kind of colour shift there, but don't understand the shot. Is it supposed to be showing us the hair salon?

Anyway, thought it was great, and I'm sure your clients did, too.

Thank you, Vito. I do have a few toys. d;-)

Starting with the moon shot was a bit of a gamble, but I just loved the idea of linking the moon with the sun in the next shot, and I figured that once the viewer reached the end it would all tie up nicely.

The significance of that shot you mentioned was that it does indeed reveal the salon. In fact, by a sheer stroke of luck it also reveals her walking up to and entering the salon.

Thanks for watching and for the comments!

Thanks for watching, Art. Color grading is indeed a subjective thing, but thanks for your opinion. I do appreciate it. The :35-:42 shot is held for that length to give the viewer time to see the salon and see her walk into it. It also held with the timing of the music. But again, I do appreciate the feedback. I'm glad you felt like the balance of steadicam/slider worked. I'm a firm believer of using tools with a purpose and not just to use them.

Thanks again for watching and for the valuable feedback!

Thanks for the feedback, Luis. Color grading is definitely a subjective thing once you start approaching it creatively. We always seem to get a mix of people who love it and people who aren't so sure. Luckily, our clients always love it. d;-)

Glad you enjoyed it, Kren! Thanks for the support. My assistant thought I was crazy to drag everything back out and get that shot, lol.
