Another Wedding Trailer
Brian Mercer Brian Mercer is offline February 5th, 2010, 05:53 PM

Had a lot of great feedback on the wedding trailer I posted earlier. Since there is two of us editing, I only thought it was fair to post one from the other editor and get some feedback on his.

Thanks again.


Here is a link to the previous thread with the first wedding trailer:
Some Feedback Please


Here is the second wedding trailer:

Brian,

I definitely preferred the style, pacing, look, and feel of the original trailer.

This trailer seems 'rushed'. By definition a trailer or 'teaser' should contain some of the very best elements of the shoot. This wedding was in a beautiful church, the first pan shot of it is not the most complimentary, with power lines dominating the shot. Looking up at the front at 00:12 should probably be the opening shot. I'm not sure what the significance is of the current opening shot (sun thru leaves) is, but it doesn't really serve the piece well, nor does the rack focus from fern to flowers.

The processional shot of the bride and father looks to be a little soft (background looks sharp though). The b&w stained glass shot has me scratching my head - at least hold the shot a little longer and fade to color (sort of 'my life was b&w until you came along and added color' metaphor).

The handheld move behind the white brick wall in b&w just doesn't work. It's why I mentioned before that you need movement (but NOT a handheld movement) using a glidecam or slider controls the speed, stability and direction of the movement.

I don't mean to be too critical of this piece. I just found that by comparison, the first was much stronger as a trailer. Personally, as I study the masters of this craft, I find it is the relentless pursuit of perfection, that separates them. And it's only by adopting that same philosophy, that we can get to that level. Obviously, the stronger the shot selection, the easier the edit.

All in all you guys are doing some very good work there. Keep it up.

Ken,

Thank you for the input. Not too critical at all. These are the things we are looking for from peers.

Thanks for taking the time to review both. Much appreciated.
