Demo For Bridal Show

I am attending my first bridal show this Sunday, and I'd like to get some recommendations on what kind of clips to play.

As of right now, I am planning on showing my three favorite trailers. Two of them are about three minutes long and are pretty upbeat, and one of them is about four minutes long and is much slower (set to a film score).

I'm just curious how long brides typically stand around and watch the videos, and I'm wondering if I'd be better off nixing the slower-paced video.

99% of the brides will try and walk right by. I suggest going with just one of the three videos .. your strongest one for catching their attention. I think a long, slow-paced video will not get you the results you want. Good luck!

I would agree. Something upbeat and quick. Maybe put together a number of clips highlighting certain special shots and moments.

Put candy or something on the table for free to get them to stop and look!!

Thanks for the input, guys.

I think I will go ahead and go with the strongest video of the three. Either that, or go ahead and put together a true demo with my best work, as Jeffery suggests.

I'm giving away a photo montage, so I'm hoping that will be a good enough excuse for them to stop and take a look.
