Thanks for all the comments guys.

We were really quite lucky that they chose Amy an Alex's wedding as it has already had so much exposure. Their trash the dress shoot made it to Trashthedress.com and travelled with us across Canada doing the Canon expo. Their highlights won a WEVA award and was also picked up to be featured on weddingbee which got quite a bit of attention. Now that the commercial is out with the same couple, tons of people are recognizing them as soon as they see the spot.

Bruce,

We are fortunate enough to be doing both a Same-Day Edit and a TTD shoot while in Van so it would be awesome to have you along whenever you have time.

Patrick

Awesome news, Patrick! Congrats to you guys! My wife watches all of those shows so she'll probably see the spot at some point.

Hi Patrick,

That's awesome. Congratulations! This is not only great exposure for your company but also the wedding video industry. This is exactly what our industry needs more of. Thanks

Thanks guys.

Mark,

I totally agree. I've had a lot of people find out that we shot it and they were so surprised it was a real wedding. I've also had a ton of people really mention more of an emotional depth to the clip. If people start loving what a commercial can do and how it is shot, I think that says a lot for what we, as an industry, can offer them.

Patrick

I actually used that song for the promo we shot for Canon (which I posted a while back) the VP of Canon saw it and liked the track so much, he was set on using it for the commercial.

Is that a local artist (i.e. not copyrighted) or did they buy the rights?

Wow...great job. You mean to tell me those "other" professionals thought it was uncompressed video? That says a whole lot about the A1 and the HV20. This is really inspiring. Hats off to you.

Dana,

The song is from Michelle Featherstone, who is starting to become quite big. She has had her stuff on Grey's anatomy and other shows. They purchased the license from her.

Ian,

They had no clue it was HDV and this was a pro editing facility so they see lots of footage. It was, howveer, the final product we were discussing and not the footage int he editor.

hey Patrick,

I keep seeing the commercial while watching Hockey Night In Canada and it was on during one of the late night shows as well, pretty cool stuff and you do more for public awareness of good wedding videography here in Canada in 30 brief seconds than Weva has done or can do in 30 years.

Great stuff -

congrats!

Like I said.. these new CMOS chips are really giving the big gunners a run for their money. The HV20 is almost TOO good.

Wow thanks David- that is quite the compliment. I'm glad Canon decided to keep the commercial with that very real and raw feeling to it so that couples can see that is is a real wedding.

I hope that means I will get your vote for the eventDV top 25 this year...

Patrick
