I haven't heared of this one before but again it shows the difference of videographers working alone because they constantly have to think about solutions to make it work during editing. If you are working in a group one can do the closeups, one handles the steadycam, one does the safetyshots and so on, they don't have to worry about the editing part, they just assure the picture is right and the editor has enough to choose from to make it work.

A solo videographer is more like a swiss knife or you could call them mcgyvers :D

Hey guys

Well many thanks for all the help and tips for my first wedding, I can see how a second camera would calm things down a bit and make the process a little less stressful. It really was a hard days work I have to say and I slept very well that night. The wedding went well on the whole although light was a problem from after the church onwards and the reception was quite dimly lit although I managed to pick my shots and not go above +6Gain. A low light setting on the XL2 I'd set up for wildlife stuff cetainly helped.

Anyway I'm 75% through the edit and I thought I'd post some results, I haven't done the montage yet but this is the 'outside the church' and 'photo shoot' section, I think I'll drop the music in places to let the audio come through. All thoughts and comments welcome here >http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/showthread.php?t=108758

I liked it. I noticed there were no shots of a photographer. Unlike the one I'm working on. And how about those Volkswagens, hehe, that video would make a good tv commercial for VW. I would bump up the saturation a hair btw. It was nice how it seemed the wedding party wanted to have fun and not hurry.
