Greece Wedding Intro

A big thanks to all who watched and commented on the trailer... With such a great response (& requests!) I thought I would share the opening sequence of the feature-length version (first 3 minutes) of the wedding we shot in Santorini, Greece last summer. In keeping with the Hollywood motif, the idea was to create a real 'movie' feel... It was a beautiful setting & we couldn't help but include a brief montage of the island. Hopefully we did it justice.

Enjoy!

Great compliments - thanks, guys.

Paul, we do a lot of digging to find the right mix of film & orchestral score for each piece. I suggest finding a favorite composer and listening to all of his or her work for inspiration, not just the most notable cue or melody. You never know what you'll find... Good luck!

Impressive folly work with the radio traffic. Did you use a scanner to pick up that traffic, or is that stock audio?

The visuals are, of course, amazing. I was particularly impressed with the establishing shots of the island buildings on top of the cliffs.

Thanks Jason. Sound is so important to the experience and often easy to neglect.

Some of the tower chatter was actually me (!) and some we found in a library. (Amazing what a little high pass filter can do...)
