Very cool! Love how it starts slow and really picks up with the preps. You squeezed a lot into a short amount of time! Kudos!

Sarah,
It's one thing to produce a video, another to be good at it but it's a completely different achievement when you improve in short amount of time.

Not too long ago, I saw some of your earlier works. They were all good in their own capacity but this video I think is your best work to date. I love the story telling and editing.

Excellent Stuff.

Thanks guys! This is my goal now with any trailer, to try to keep it short and truly make it a "teaser" for the full video instead of simply a highlights piece called a trailer. I want to make them like real movie trailers as much as possible, without making them so short that the client doesn't feel it was worth the money. (yes a well done 30 second spot can take a lot of time, but they don't really know that)

Thanks so much! Sometimes when I look at our work from a year ago I almost feel sorry for those clients that they didn't get a better video. :-P I know that's silly... we all grow, improve, and charge more. :-) But yes, I would say we have drastically improved over the past year. I think when we first started we were too suck on what we thought a wedding film was "supposed" to be like. Going to WEVA Expo and getting involved in the forums here, at VU, and Event Filmmaker has taught us so much.

Quality work Sarah! Very good editing, and I liked the "sudden" ending with the rings!

Great trailer, Sarah. I love that you kept the pace and length just right. The shot with the boys and girls was perfect too. Awesome job!
