Your logic is absolutely correct Mark. I wasn't talking from their vantage point as being a product to purchase or not, but the angle as a creator of the project. I was just trying to see how much of a challenge it was for you as you stated it was a challenge finding the right balance for the couple as they booked the wedding day edit as well as the highlights (you were referring to the audio bites). I know it is a subjective question, but just wanted your opinion as peer to peer. I film Quinceanera videos, those short forms are different than weddings by little. If it is not cut down the videos can exceed 3 hrs easily. Most of my friends in this market do it long form 2-3hrs on dvd/tape. I do em at 45mins to just over a hour. They are longer than a wedding as during the reception there is usually 3 different dances they do as a entire court that is usually 4mins a piece. It's pretty much as short as you can get them, and I really put a lot of energy in creating the main video as good as it can be that I'm left dry for the highlights if they have one. I appreciate you sharing your talents once again, it is a clip I know they will cherish forever.

Hi Monday,

I have only done one Quinceanera. It was several years ago and most of it was in Spanish, so it was a challenge for me. I can see how a 45 minute short form would be so much more enjoyable to watch than 3 hours.

It had the smoothness of 50% but seemed slower... must be me getting older.

Hi Dennis,

I'm sorry for the delay in responding to you. We were in the middle of launching 2 new websites as well as preparing for a Bridal Show.

I just checked the project, and yes, it was at 50%.

Hi Janice,

The link is still up and I just checked it. If you still cannot see it, try viewing it from our other site. We just got the new site up, so it's not complete yet, but you can view the clip there.

Awsome job, I really like it.

Are some of the pans done in post processing, or are they all done in camera?

I love the soft steady pans and am very new to this.

Hi Denny,

Thanks. All of the apparent camera work really is camera work and not done in post, but good question.

Thanks, Very Very good camera work then some of the smoothest panning I have seen.

I love video, not that I dont still love photography, that is my bread and butter and provides my living but really want to breat into video too, I feel very few will be able to become true videographers.

Hi Denny,

Thanks. So I take it that you are a photographer that is getting into wedding videography? If so, I would like to learn from your insight.

What do you consider to be a true videographer? Are you referring to a skill set or an ability to provide for your family or even something else?

If you think it would be better to start a new thread on this subject, feel free to. It is an interesting subject for me.

Hi John,

Thanks. We had to go live with it before it was really ready. We had a big bridal show last weekend and all of our marketing materials used our new name, VonWeddingFilms.com instead of our old name TulsaWeddingFilms.com.

We are looking forward to getting it a little more ready for prime time. We have a big conference in less than two weeks, so I'm not sure how much time Trisha will be able to spend on it. When it's all done it will be a big improvement over our previous site, which is three years old.

Very nicely done. I was glad to hear you were using a Glidecam for some of those shots. I just couldn't see how you were managing the shots without one. You had me stumped!!
