I think he told me that he designed it.... or I could just be making that up.
No really, he did once tell me who did it, I just don't remember. For some reason I want to say he did it himself.
Correct me if I'm wrong please.

ps. I'm a big fan of his logo as well.

Hey guys. Thanks so much for all the kind words!

Our logo was designed by my wife who is a trained graphic designer. She's the editor of the magazine we publish (www.wedluxe.com) and her design portfolio is here: http://cloudninecreative.com/design.html

Let us know in the new year if you're interested in some logo work or re-branding.

Thanks again!

The usual question I find myself asking... What cams were used here?

Bruce do you shoot in HDV or DV? And do you deliver standard DVDs?

Bruce - really liked these clips. Did you use a jib on the Stacey & Ryan piece? Also, there was a shot toward the end of the clip of the bride sitting alone in lobby. The camera movement circling the bride was so smooth it looked like a dolly shot. Was that just using a stabilizer? I liked your use of different camera angles. It made this very enjoyable to watch.

We can't all be perfect, right Bruce :)

You should actually get extra points for these clips considering you had to shoot with a handicap.

Please note, this was posted by Patrick "Canon" Moreau.

If anything, I'd say that 4:2:0 long GOP is the handicap. And no, I'm not a Panasonic agent, just an HDV user who isn't sold on the techology. But let's not start that whole discussion again. Just making an observation.

Zing!

But, can we really punish Patrick for wanting to use the best gear in industry?


Great work there Bruce, as always.. very impressive. Hope to meet you sometime soon. :)

LOL, the "best" gear in the industry is a "slightly" subjective statement, no?

Stelios:
We shoot exclusively in HDV and deliver on DVD, online and AppleTV.

Art:
Thanks so much for the compliments. We only use jibs for corporate work. All our steadicam work is hand-held with no vest, no jibs, and no dollies. It just isn't appropriate to use a jib at a wedding and the whole vest set-up is very obtrusive and attracts too much attention to the videographer, in my opinion, at a wedding. It's also not a requirement to shoot with the whole vest set-up in order to get great shots with dynamic range of motion. With practice, these shots can be achieved with a hand-held steadicam.

Ethan:
I couldn't agree more about the HDV format. We were one of the first companies to jump on the technology early in 2005 and invested heavily into equipment to shoot this way. As much as I like a lot about HDV, I'm not a hard-core fan and we're looking to change to another HD format in the very near future.

John:
See above! :) I'm still tossing around the idea of heading to Orlando in January. If you make the trek I'd love to meet both you and Patrick as well.

Thanks again everyone for all your comments/posts.

Hi Bruce,
As a person who is looking to make the switch to HD, what other options are out there?

Hi Jason,

We are seriously looking at the new Sony XDCAM EX but are just researching all the workflow changes and deciding if that's the route we'll take. I'm a Sony fan myself and have had good success with the Z1U, but a lot of my colleagues swear by the slightly smaller V1U. Canon fans would likely steer you towards the A1 for event videography work. I think a great feature to look for no matter which camera you buy is one that has true 24p.

Another popular camera has been the Panasonic AG-HVX200 which can be run tapeless, but most event videographers feel like the cost of the media is too high. Friends of mine who film music videos, short pieces, etc. and not live events swear by the HVX-200. HD format is DVCPRO HD.

Hope that helps! I would always suggest heading to your rental shop when a new camera comes out and rent it for the day. That's really the best way to get a hands on look at what any camera can do. It's such a big financial investment as I'm sure you already know so really researching is the key.
