Since I haven't seen any comments about the shots yet. I'll start off by saying that each of the first five scenes has a problem, but I hoped the pacing & subject matter are intense enough so it isn't noticed. Can anyone see what I am talking about? Do the problems warrant some post production work to mask them out / cover them up?

Do the visuals match the intensity of the audio?
most of the time. Especially at the beginning.

I think it looks great, some of it is a little shaky (but I am shaky a lot too), but if you have final cut the smooth cam filter does wonders. Just used it on a project for school that I shot entirely hand held in new york last night. (tripods are not allowed with out a permit). Any way, I liked your video a lot. I liked how you timed it to the music and loved how you eneded it. Great job.

Right. Slight instability and wobble was one of the problems with clips #3,4,5. I am discovering that the MultiRig is in no way suited to slow mo work or reveals / pans, etc. If anything it is a great platform for zoomed out footage played back at full speed. Anything slower and the wobble is noticeable. It also isn't as good as a closely held camera for shots like the first (the cathedral spire).

I've played with that feature a few times but it always seems to make the footage kind of blurry. Have you noticed that?

Thanks for the feedback. It appears that the stutter effect when timed with percussive sound tracks is either a hit or miss affair for reviewers. Any idea how brides think of it? I know that what the editors & shooters like to do is one thing, and what brides like is sometimes very different.

If you hit up my Vimeo account you will now see several version of the same trailer. In version 2.0 I lengthened the entire content a bit and compressed the "credits" at the end.

Version 2.1 has scene changes (used different clips) to display more people, and eliminated all credits to shorten it / reduce file size.
