Hey Don,

That's some serious slow motion you've got going. I could barely tell if the cake cutting clip was moving or not! It works with the dramatic music you've selected though. I'm not sure if you've addressed this before, but do you use something like Twixtor to achieve that kind of extreme slo-mo? The quality and colors look great.

This one is slower than normal but the music drove me to do it this way. The slowmo is from edius. When going this slow, i have to pick clips that are some what stable and smooth to make it work. Thanks for checking the clip out.

Quite well done and very powerful. I loved watching it and wish I had the vest to get the stable fling shots.

The pacing did seem slow at first, but after only 15 seconds or so the viewer settles in to the pace and is absorbed by the visuals.

Well done.

Upon reading the comments, I was expecting another overdone boring slow mo clip, but this was a nice surprise. It was very well done and the parallax movement in the shots made them really nice. Colors were good too.
The wide angle lens really bothered me, though, because it was not only distorted, but the colors on the edges were also displayed oddly-- green seemed to be displaced from the other colors.

I liked it. What was the musical piece? I didn't think it was right for a wedding. But it might be good for other projects. It was ominous and heavy. When the groom started with the v/o it almost sounded like a serial killer confessional.
I thought the bride was hot. I think the groom will enjoy his wedding night!

The music was from Last Samarai, I believe from Hanz Zimmer.

I thought the colours looked great and shots were extremely stable for hand held, and the video quality was fantastic considering how heavily slowed down it was. I thought the slow mo worked well in some areas but was overall a tad excessive for those shots where the camera wasn't moving.

great handheld. I would have guessed that would definitely have been shot with some sort of stabilizing device.

Don - beautiful piece! "Majestic" is the word that comes to mind. What equipment did you use for this? Color was great and loved your attention to detail (where those camera clicks I heard?). I also would have never guessed this was done hand held. Nice work!
