Anton&Katya wedding as documentary
Oleg Kalyan Oleg Kalyan is offline December 15th, 2009, 03:45 AM

wanted to shoot, present it as most dynamic, on a spot documentary as I sense it...
content, context, not too much style, which in that approach can be unnessesarry drag.

All handheld, no time for "gizmos", gliders, sliders, stedicams.

Canon H1, no time for DSLR's, focusing takes too much time, some spontaneity can be lost..

Let me know what you think. Appreciate all kinds of feedbacks. Is' not my typical editing style oriented work.
So if you think it's too hectic, please let me know.

Oleg,

Very nice piece of work. I didn't find the pacing to hectic at all.

I thought maybe you sold the H1 when you went to the DSLR. The H1 seemed to render the colors very well in this shoot. Did you shoot with a preset or tweak the colors in post? Also there was very little noise in the interior shots. Did you use any extra lighting? Very steady work for handheld (do you use a rig or just bace it against your body)? Also were you using just the on-cam mic?

You always seem to get beautiful brides to work with. I think that this helps somewhat to define a style, if you have young, charismatic couples to work with, your style can be less dramatic and the piece doesn't need shallow dof, etc. to be entertaining.

The editing didn't seem to hectic to me. I thought it was a good blend of your usual energy with the documentary style. Part of me would have liked to see the energy carried to the end, but you slowed it up later.

I didn't feel like the Nirvana song fit the edit at all. And the song that comes shortly after it felt like too abrupt of a change to me.

Still, I was very impressed with the beginning and how you created an energetic documentary.

Oleg, I'm a big fan of your work and I enjoyed the clip.
But I feel that, for this kind of camera work, interlaced would've been better.
With progressive and fast camera movement you got too much ghosting.
Aside that, everything is cool, as always.

Кen, Travis, Louis, thank you very much for your feedback, sorry took a few days to answer.
This one was a cut from actual wedding film, done in a docu style, verite camera, all handheld.
This style really attracts me most as the purest form of capturing life itself!
