Hey Chris, no Darrell didn't do that shot. He wasn't even with me during that shoot. I did glidecam while my assistant did safe shots from sticks.

Btw, a little known fact- I handed Darrell his first glidecam several years ago on a shoot we were both subcontracted for. He thought it looked cool and wanted to try it. ;) I bought my glidecam in '03-04.

Hi Glen,

Thanks for sharing. I enjoyed how you put this one together. The VO work and intro is really excellent, the pacing, shot variety, and that spinning dance shot also stood to to me. If that is your glidecam work then Darrell must be using something like a steadytracker for his shots :)

As you always do for me, I would also add a couple suggestions:
-relatively speaking, the opening portion (where the Rabbi discussed the breaking of the glass) is quite long compared to the rest of the trailer. With that in mind, I would have tried putting some other content in between his VO so it starts with him, and then finished with some of the shots of the couple and the breaking of the glass. As he spoke of commitment, perhaps just a sequence of shots with the two of them laughing, kissing, or being close throughout the day.

-I would have tried to push the color a little further on some of the more artistic shots, especially the ones of them kissing near the end with the veil in front.

Patrick

lol, I'm not sure if the glidecam comment was a shot at me or him. Thanks Patrick- very good input!

Peaking?

I haven't heard of this before. Any concise explanations, I should I hit up the web and the usual good references (oh wait... dvinfo IS my usual web reference).

Peaking is a function in the camera that will highlight the "in focus" edges in the frame with a color, typically white, red, yellow, I suppose there could be others, but that's the "Sony" selection I've seen.

It gives you an extra confirmation as to what you or the cam has focus locked on and comes in handy sometimes (looks a little like a weird bad horror flick if you use red and most of the scene is in focus...)!

Yup thats a great compliment. With 24f, and the right custom presets, the A1 can produce stunning images. While I still feel a twinge of envy whenever people talk about their EX1s (or Z7s), the more I work with the A1 the more I realize that I have one heck of a camera.
