My very own Prewedding film :)
Susanto Widjaja Susanto Widjaja is offline December 28th, 2009, 11:44 AM

This would be one of our greatest achievements... making our own prewedding film. The story is based on how I proposed to Dewi using a lot of point of view shots of my eyes.

It was a very fun and weird process for us in making this film since we are so used to do it for other people. However, the purpose of this film was to express ourselves and to tell our true love story and I believe that we did quiet well with it.

I hope that this particular film would touch a lot of hearts :)

Awesome stuff man! It wasn't till like 1/3rd the way in when I realized it was all a re-inaction. I loved it, don't get me wrong, but was a little disappointed it was acting and theatrics. However....as soon as I saw the real footage included at the end- that really made the clip. Amazing piece- bravo, and congratulations! I just got married this year, it was an wonderful experience- probably the single best day of my life. I wish you both the best! Thanks for sharing!

Excellent work Susanto, both with the proposal and the video. The ending was strong and emotional.

Great work.

This was incredible in both concept and realisation! I don't know why, but the scene at 2:15 looked totally awesome to me. I watched it over again and again just to find out why I am stuck with it, and still I can't say!

What more can be said? Stunning!

It seems that it was the year for many of us! -:)

Lol Dimitris !

Congrats to you on your wedding too!!!

scene 2:15 is the movie-making scene. I think it sort of reflects to all of us as videographers in a way :P

Thanks for commenting.

Susanto, well done my man, well done. This was an excellent piece of story-telling where nearly everything worked perfectly. I especially enjoyed the 'flashback' sequence that you edited in during the ring presentation. For some reason, cutting back to those previous scenes was just really powerful I thought. It just really sealed the emotion and purpose.

Again, excellent job, and congrats on the marriage. I wish you both a very long and happy one, just like my wife and are having. d;-)

Thanks again Travis, I'm glad you enjoyed this one. Dewi cried when she watched the draft, so I was sure we did pretty well on the shoot :P

Santo...

+1 another fan of this video. Normally I show my wife all of your work (so she can see what I strive for)... But since you chose such a clever way to ask your wife to marry you, it would only make me look bad :-)

I would pay money to see this in a theater. Beautifully done!
You should enter this in a short film competition. AND Congrats!

That is an absolutely fantastic film. I had my own surprise proposal for my wife (captured on camera as well!) and I love re-watching it even more than the wedding footage. Not because the wedding footage is bad, but because the emotions of the proposal are so intense, even more so those of a surprise proposal. :-)

One day I may post my engagement video, though I have come so far in technical skills since then (and needless to say, I wasn't the cam op for it).

Fantastic video. I loved the use of retelling the story, and the surprise live (multi-cam even!) footage at the end was the most emotional and impactfull (is that a word) part.

Stephen: There is always anniversary surprises! :P

Robert: That's a big compliment mate, thanks so much

Jason: Yep, we also treasure the real footage so much. It just contains so much emotion. But FYI, it wasn't multicam. I just moved the camera from top cupboard to the table since I guessed that the cam wouldn't be able to see dewi's face in full because she sat down. so I kinda moved it when she was about to watch the video (subtly) She said she didn't realise that I moved the camera or even knowing there was any camera at all which is good :)
