Mixing super8 and digital (clips)

Cross post from VU.

My editor Chance and I learned a lot in creating the biggest wedding film we've had to date - mixing lots of rehearsal dinner toasts throughout the course of everything else, and enjoying the speedier editing that comes when editing super8 film (and not having to worry about that dang audio track!):

I will be posting about 80% of the total of the wedding film on my blog over the course of the next 3 weeks, so you won't have the full experience of how we tied everything together, but most of it.

I might release the film in its entirety with a commentary track to explain more of our thinking throughout the process. We learned a lot while making it...not only about shot selection and editing style, but about marketing to a new strata of the high-end.

Comments, questions, and criticism are welcome. I hope I have time to address them all!

...loved it Chris, really nice job mixing the formats. The vid shows lot's of New Orleans's character.

Cheers, Joe
