Lovestory "Three Patrice's women"

http://vimeo.com/1337090

My first lovestory shot on XH-A1 and HV20
It's a piece of experimental work according to couple intentions
Will appreciate any comments!

really very good, and commendably different to alot of other stuff out there... i loved some of the touches that kept it in sequence with the day-dreaming (music delay/echo, and turning the shots upside down)

couple of things:
- the three women sequences each went on a bit too long...there def. would have been more impact in keeping those shorter
- you spelt 'goodbye' as 'good buy' :)

brilliant quality, and some really inspiring shots and close-ups

I liked it alot! So very "outside the box" from the typical love story.

I agree that the dream sequences should be shorter to have more impact. I found myself waiting for the next part a bit. I also wish the actor had more emotion in his voice when he was talking to the girl.

Thanks for your kind words!

Richard
I'll consider shortening the sequences on final edit for sure. This story was shown on reception first, but planned as a part of whole wedding film (about 20-25min long). Events will smoothly flow from park to wedding day.

Ups! :) funny misspelling.. my English can be odd a little, I have very seldom practice.. Will try reading more, maybe even commenting sometime :)

Yes, some shots even without visible mimic sound not confident enough, I know that. Both of "actors" far from actors profession in real life, so that was the best takes from many.

What a great concept for a video! Nice job on the unique approach. Overall the video was well done.

Just some suggestions for you ...

Shorten up the segments with the three women as you have said you are going to do. Also, I think a few more shots of the groom dreaming by the tree during each of those segments would help sell the idea that he is dreaming. I didn't really like the echo on his voice, and I think a strong whisper would have worked better for selling the dream. That's just my opinion, though.

As far as your English, don't worry about it. Be proud that you can speak understand and speak another language, as many people can't.

Keep up the good work!

Travis, thank you!
I'll consider moments about dream!

Thanks for English too :) Client's version has russian subtitles (my native language) so almost sure it spelled well.. Is it..?? (going to reread) :)


Wanted to ask one question.. I've used some shots with nonstabilized "live" camera on final scene especially. Don't it look too rough?
I like to use sometime action camera and in my opinion it can increase emotional impact in certain scenes. I was choosing between several static shots and "live" walking camera.. And decided that live camera looks natural and cause more immersion in emotional scene.
What do you think about it?
