Enjoyed it,
intriguing, great concept, good execution, some shots were a little hot, overexposed to me, couple of shots seemed to have a little forced camera movement, great locations, soundtrack incredible (what was it?), 3 females at the end, unexpected ! Overall a nice piece of work!

Thanks Oleg.
The music is from the movie "300".
About the hot shots, you're right. I overexposed a bit, and in pp with the difusion filter that got even more noticeable. I'm thinking about reviewing that, but I don't dislike it totally.
The movement issues (if you're talking about the image getting stucked), I think it has something to do with the Vimeo conversion, because in the original file I dont see any.

Wow, very very nice, I liked it. a bit dark to my eye, but very nice,
but don'ttell me that was handheld, I guess you've used the tripod or monopod have you?

Thanks.
Some parts were handheld, some with a tripod and some with a DIYS steadycam.

Very interesting but I was confused by the 3 women at the end. Care to explain what I'm missing? d:-)

Great job. I do agree with Buba its a little dark in bits.


Travis

It represents the symbolism of styles of video's Luis does.

Or expect the unexpected means that maybe the guy has 3 different girls to choose from.. you wouldn't expect that at a wedding now would you? :P

Just kidding, no idea maybe just a visual concept.

Bingo!
3 brides for one groom is not the final anyone would expect, at least in a catholic wedding. That was my way of telling future clients I'm willing to surprise them with my work.
Of course it's an exaggerated image, but that's how this marketing things work.
I never saw Santa drinking Coke... :)

Well, I like the concept that you have 3 different brides to represent that you do different styles of work, but I don't know if that's the message that will come across to the public. I sure didn't get it. Very cool idea, though.

I'm not too worried about that.
My wife says she don't understand me, and she married me anyway... :)
So, I'm more worried about the visual part of it.

No problem then. I only inquired because when I first watched it I got the impression that the groom was taking on 3 wives, and that's probably not the message you want going out to brides, lol. It could just be that I live in an area of the US that is highly "mormonized", and they have that stigma of polygamy. So maybe it was just subconcious thought interfering. d;-)

At any rate, beautifully shot and edited work (it felt very intimate).

When you have a not very clear ending and people get confused about it, but they enjoyed the whole, they will discuss it. That's fantastic for advertising. And since this is intended to be a promo, if I can achieve that, I will be very happy.
Thanks.
