Happy Holidays and a new trailer clip!

Everyone have a safe and happy holiday season! I've been slammed with 12/25 deadlines. Here's a trailer I cut today for a couple. It's my 2nd attempt at this sort of piece. Take care...

Hey Glen,
Very different pace for a trailer. It was very well done. Great colors and camera movements throughout. Clean audio during the talking head portion. This clip had a lot more glidecam through it, was this job you and Darrell? Great job, very different feel for a trailer and it works very well. Merry Christmas bro. Thanks for sharing

Hey Glen
Great job as usual, really helps that they seem really outgoing as well. Are you using a brevis with you A1's? Also how many cams were running.

Hey Monday, yeah I wanted to take the trailer idea in a different direction. I guess it's more analogous to an actual highlights. I try to put a focus on shot selection, pacing, and kinetic movement (ie not as many still shots).

I experimented with the audio on this shoot. I shot it redundantly using two wireless systems- one with a lapel and the other on a a shotgun on a boom just outside the shot. The shotgun (Sennheisser ME66) gathered richer audio , which was what I subsequently used.

No lenses, adapters, or any post-filtering for that matter. The imagery is "As Is" right out of the cam. 2 XH-A1s were used.

great job!

I really had lot of fun with this trailer. Bravo for the A1 too. Question what low light settings and preset did you use for the indoor?

Glen,

Great stuff, as usual! I'm really curious about the lighting used for the reception. Was the spot at the corner of the dance floor yours? If so, could you fill us in on what you used? Also, do you use any on-camera lights with your XH A1's? Again, if so, please let us know.

Thanks again for sharing your wonderful work.

Kevin

Thanks,

Hi Glen, awesome clip.

Really solid glidecam work seamlessly intercutted with tripod shots. Great non-linear storytelling as well.

Nice to see see one of the original masters still sharing their work. Totally a fan.
