Favorite Faster Highlights of '08

Just finished up the highlights from the wedding that was featured in our tour with Canon. The couple was not the slow mushy type so we went with something faster for the highlights and I really love how it turned out. I don't do many faster edits for highlights but I think I might move more in that direction after this one.

This was shot and edited in HD with a pile of Canon A1s and an XL-H1. Lots of pretty 35 adapter (the Brevis) footage in there too.

As always, comments are appreciated, especially when this is a little out of the norm for us.

Looked great. I really like your fast paced stuff. Thought the last shot was a great one to close with.

Jason, still interested with Brevis eh? hehehe...

Having only 4 wedding coverages shot using 35mm adapter (I'm using Brevis + flipped external monitor btw) is killing me... :) I really dont know how you guys did it very well...

Currently I'm waiting for the stand-alone Brevis flip module:)

With a LOT of practise :)

Jason, on behalf of Pat, we may have used the flip module for 1-2 weddings but definately not for the wedding highlights above.

Hi guys,

We did beta test the pre-flip module but that was not with the current design and enclosure so we opted out of using it for more than one to two shoots. All the clips we post with Brevis footage were shot upside down and flipped in post. For corp work, we use an external monitor that is flipped with a bracket or flips the image but we have just gotten used to it as-is for weddings, and I currently don't even think it slows us down. It does take a wile before you can cancel out the flip and backwards image in your head though.

Truly gorgeous. I loved the artistic use of many different tools - tastefully done and not overtaking of the subject. WONDERFUL!

I was smiling maniacally by the end. =D Happy start to my day. ;)
