Same Day Edit in MEXICO! - Colour Craft Media
Randy Panado Randy Panado is offline October 26th, 2010, 07:39 PM

This was my first international SDE. The couple had us travel to New York to shoot their e-session concept film so I included a small amount of that in the same day edit. It was quite the challenge running around the resort and nailing specific shots in order to tell the story of the day but pretty happy with the result. It was shot in Riviera Maya, Cancun and the resort was REALLY beautiful.

The music is a departure from the usual "wedding" music. The bride and groom are both huge music lovers and it came as a special request. I usually pick the music when doing SDEs but seeing as how they really loved the song, I took it on as a challenge to edit to this type of genre. I also had a short amount of time to edit this piece, right around 4 hours due to how jam packed their wedding schedule is. Thank God that my team, comprised of my sister studio based out of ohio red Bicycle Media, was able to do a bit of rough cutting while I was flying steadicam to ease a small amount of pressure.

Nice Work Randy!
I think you took on the challenge really well by using their requested song. Really nice steadycam shots.

Just curious on how you managed a destination wedding. (I will have one next year in Puerto Rico)
How many crew did you bring?
by the way, did you have to bring heavy equipments on destination weddings like the steadycam pilot?

thanks,

Hi Sigmund, thanks for watching and commenting.

I brought along 2 other cinematographers for this destination wedding. I was VERY worried about packing steadicam and slider due to customs, but it was the fastest customs check I've ever been thru. You have to push a button and if you get a green light, you move thru. If you get red, you are searched. It's a random process.

However, being that you are going to Puerto Rico (US territory), I don't think you have much to worry about. I packed the steadicam and tripod in my suitcase while we divided the slider parts of the atlas 30 among us.

Let me know if there's anything else I can answer. Thanks

Awesome look to that piece. What aperture were you shooting at during the ceremony and when the bride got off the boat?

Hi Peter, thanks for the compliments. I have my guys shoot at f/8, sometimes a tad higher, outdoors.

I would have cried during editing if I were given that music.

NICE JOB!

Santo

I've learned that it's just sometimes better to stress your expertise in your work and flat out tell them that their song isn't a fit for a) your style of work or b) the emotion your trying to give the audience.

We had a SDE a while back that was Lebanese and not feeling comfortable picking the "right" song, I turned to them and all I got was Lebanese techno. It was horribly hard to work with and I just flat out tell people I will use their music as SUGGESTIONS now.

Great work, either way though!

Hey Aaron, thanks for watching. I liked the song and genre, but felt it didn't have the right elements to fit into the vision I had of the day. However, after being immersed in the feel of the day, it fit the feel of how things were unraveling. Now there are some songs that should NEVER be wedding songs, lol, so in those types of cases I will be firm on a change of song. This was more me being out of my comfort zone so it was great being able to rise to the challenge :). Much thanks for commenting and watching!

Garry - Thanks :)
