My vote is for the slow version. While I did like some of the cuts in the fast version, I thought the music was too "edgy" for what seemed to be a pretty elegant wedding

I agree... slow one. But that's also my style, so I guess I'm biased.

By the way, what was the music?

Thanks,
Dan

Hey Don,
Is that still the Sony PD170 cam?
It looks like a 16.9 cam to me?
I say that as the frame looks like a wide screen frame.

I could be wrong.

Slow one is better suited.

Cheers
Simon

I'll echo Art's comments. While some of the cuts in the fast one were nice, for overall style I'd go with the slow one. It seems to have better editing. Many of the shots were the same, I just like the slow edit better. Feels nicer.

The music is from the Transformers OST. 2007 Steve Jabronsky if my memory serves me well. Love that music score!

Yup, slow one for me too, but a lot of that is to do with the 'raucusness' of the faster music track, and the fact that you had to include slight camera wobbles to cut it on the beat.

Nice one!

Another vote for slow.

I didn't like the 'fast' music and really loved the Steve Jabronsky piece.

Nice work!

don: great work! I noticed that you are in the 248 area code.. I used to live there and did videos part time for 3 years.. How's wedding market for you in SE MI? The Ann Arbor photographer I keep in touch with said it's not doing well as of late.

hey yang, i'm in the waterford area if you know the area. yes michigan's economy is really bad and alot of wedding vendors are feeling it. Last i looked michigan is the worst of all the states in unemployment. fortunately for me it has not impacted my work. i've been blessed thru the years with great clients. You're in chicago right? i just got booked to do a wedding next year in Downers Grove. i think that's close to chicago.

Good to hear.

Grew up in Rochester and now living in Chicago for my full time gig.

Yep, Downers Grove is a suburb of Chicago

I'm actually doing a wedding in detroit for Dec and a couple more next year. I might need a second shooter for the dec 1st wedding(maybe just in the morning) because I'm renting two XLH1s. Would you be interested?
