wedding preview

here's a preview for my last wedding. Dont worry, filming weddings isn't my real job :-)

http://www.persemprevideos.com/matt&christine.mov

the movie takes about 20-30 seconds to load. I dont fully understand everything that goes into uploading videos.

let me know what you think.

I haven't seen it yet... to tell you the truth i'm a little interested in the training DVD that Patrick Moreau and crew might come out with... Whats the other one like?? any ideas?
Thanks for your response, it was a very small wedding... I just bought a brand new manfrotto tripod that i was looking forward to using. Unfortunately, there were no chairs for people to sit down. So everyone gathered around the B&G and started creeping closer and closer to get the best pictures. I had to shoot mostly everything handheld to keep people out of my way. not only that, in most of the frames during the ceremony I have some guy who was like 2 feet from the B&G taking pictures. It looks ridiculous. :-(

well thats what i do for a living... I work and fly on helo's for the CG... The groom is a friend of mine from work... All the guys at work knew where and at what time he was getting married so they wanted to do a fly over...

Sad part was that the guy who filmed it used the zoom button a little to much... so the image is really shaky for most of it... I'm still happy to be able to take out the 2 or 3 seconds of usable footage though...

I like the change of focus when the bride looks back at the groom, even though I predicted it, probably because I'm a videographer :) Why did you choose to do it in B&W?

thanks for sharing!

I dont have a good reason for B&W. Actually I have a a bunch of B&W pictures scrolling through as my desktop wallpaper. They look so much better then in color. so i decided to try it out see what it looks like...
Should i think twice about doing something like that in the future???
