Hey Glen,

I too am a big fan of your work! Back to the lighting...the first shot of the dance floor on your trailer where the camera swoops in on I'm assuming a steadicam...there is a light in the background lighting up the floor...is that the 75 watt off camera light you were using...or is that the dj's or facilities?

thanks

Jeremiah

Thanks Jeremiah. Yes that is the Frezzi 75 watt mini-dimmer on a light pole aprox arm's length from my tripod.

Have you run across anyone who doesn't like the light..or says it destroys the "mood". Often at weddings I'm working the couple or whoever wants to bring the house lights way down to make it romantic I guess...(what do they think this is a wedding or something? geez :o) ...I know you only use it for the main dances, entrances and toasts...but was just wondering if you ran into that kind of problem...and if you have how did you handle it...and if you didn't ...how would you handle it?


thanks

Jeremiah

Where do you show the 'trailer'

Hi Glen,

Love the trailer.

I'm just wondering, where do you show the trailer? Do you post it on a website/blog for your clients to see? Or send them a DVD with it on so that they have something while your editing?

Do you use the trailers as a 'marketing' tool where the client has something early on to keep them happy and they can also show their friends and family a short clip that isn't too big to download etc?

Cheers,
Matt
