Our blog and work

Hey everyone. I usually follow up on the forums and post here and there but have never put any work up. I don't feel like editing right now so I've decided to share.
A little history. This is now my full time job and we are just finishing up our second solid year of doing weddings. I absolutely love what I do and am constantly working to make things better and more progressive in our videos. Here are just a few samples.

Excellent work, I watched Tiffany and Brandon Highlights.. really enjoyed it.. your glidecam work is very pretty well done, I only noticed a few shakes, but nothing crazy..

Did is the film colour corrected? I thought the preps looked really good.. had a very classy feel too it.

Great work.

Matt,

I checked out the same highlights. Really great stuff- in both the shooting and editing.

I notice the same shakes in the glidecam work, but that just takes practice and isn't something the client would notice. Two other comments: I noticed soe exposure issues with some shots being a little overexposed ad other looking a little flat like they could use some contrast. A couple shots also seemed to feel wrong in their sequencing and pacing. For example, the long glidecam shot of the bride in the window felt way to fast for the sequence and was kind of jarring, especially for the soundtrack you chose.

I really enjoyed the way you pieced the story together. Thanks for sharing- hopefully we will see more of your work soon.

Patrick

thanks john and patrick.

That demo was only the second wedding I have used the glidecam for, but I'm catching on pretty well at this point. John, I do use color correction on everything. I have magic bullet, but don't use it much. I usually play around with curves and such.
Patrick, thanks for the comments and I appreciate your advice. I'll keep a closer eye on lighting and contrast.
