First Trailer Post

This was from a wedding I shot last weekend. I found a music piece that seemed to fit well with the Scottish theme of the wedding. Please try to overlook my bad steadicam work.

Art, I think you did really nice job. I assume you still getting used to glidecam. But the shots you got are well thought. I like what you were trying to achieve. When you master it, it's gonna be awesome.
I enjoyed the pace a lot a you built it up nicely.
I love how you ended it too. Really nice.

Now some feedback. I hope you don't mind.
Watch your reflection (reception hall door). That's important.
Time remap at 0:50 and 0:53 didn't really work for me. They're not bad. I just don't think that it fits this trailer. Maybe I'm wrong. I know what you were trying to accomplish though, totally.
One last thing about the look. It would be nice to see some more contrast in some shots. But that's another level :), if you know what I mean.

Cheers

Thanks Konrad - yeah I've noticed more and more of my self in mirrors and doors than I'd like. Same thing with my shadow. I'll try to be more aware. When you say contrast, were you refering to shot variety or grading of the video?

I meant grading, or I should say a little enhancement, cause grading means a lot more to me.
Contrast is an easy fix and it would make it look better.
