It was very dream like. It was also a unique place to shoot it. Did you shoot this before or after the wedding?
What did you use to make it?

Thanks Mary!
This all was shot at wedding day with 2x XH-A1. But I had no aim to show all the material in trailer - here only few key shots to refresh couple's memory still keeping intrigue. The unique place is Kolomenskoe Park and Estate (http://www.moscow.info/parks/kolomenskoe-park.aspx) we had some kind of excursion there. And also some Old Russia traditions was a part of this excursion

Is there any suggestions on color correction? Don't it too pale? I tried to imitate dream-like picture, maybe not this way?

Please share your opinions, it means much to me and I appreciate much any feedback!

I think the entire clip doesn't really need to much color correction, especially because you're in a dream, so anything is possible.

The only scene i would change or remove would be at 1:14, it looks like the bride's vail got stuck on you shotgun mike or your camera for some reason,. other than that i like everything else

I don't know what you did to get that really nice teal background at 1:22, but it looks awesome.

I think that was on purpose with the veil.

I really enjoyed that production. THe colors did seem just fine to me. If anything the dutch tilt at 1:40 was a little stuttered because the scenes starts on a stationary frame, and then you tilt, and then the tilt ends and holds for a second or so. I would slow it down a little and eliminate the pauses at teh start and end of that clip (just my opinion of course). I loved some of the colors involved with the flower petal scenes. I wish I could shoot that kind of a scene.

Thank you, Carl!
I degraded a little original colors, but wasn't quite sure about, so appreciate your opinion!

As for a bride's vail you've almost guessed.. may be that was my or assistant's hand but mike though doesn't matter :) This shot associate me with dream, something unreal like old clothes and traditions..

Tiling background is just back lit gate (seen on previous shot)

Jason, thanks!
Maybe I took habit on moving shots from active motion and sports shootings.. don't know.. trying to moderate myself a little :) Will overlook this fragment. Actually I didn't like composition in next closup of dome too
