Glen, as always GREAT WORK !! From 1-10 I'd give it a 9.5.
Nice foreground framing
Nice use of C/U's
Very smooth handheld shooting
I like the V/O idea, usually you see them talking directly to the camera. BTW, any coaching the B&G on what to say ?
Did they prepare for it ? The words seemed "polished" Very Nice!!!
Nice tracking shots, ever mix it up with a static shot every now and then?
What soundtrack is this piece from ?

Thank you Mike. The VO's were very impromptu. I mean, me and my assistant knew we wanted to get them but they didn't know we were going to ask. I simply pulled the bride aside and asked her to say a short message to her soon to be husband. I actually felt it was not as profound as it could be...so if you feel it looks anywhere near "polished" that is a good thing. I figured regardless if the couple are poets or not- it has meaning beings they came up with the words on the fly without any time to prepare.

In general I've been trying to work with more audio elements in my work. I feel VO's can add a good amount of depth and personal touch to a piece.

Soundtrack is from Deep Blue Sea and regarding camera tracking and movement- no, I actually try to have all my shots have some sort of movement even if it's subtle. I think the most static shot is the cufflinks shot....I feel the lighting in that shot made up for it's lack of movement.

Thanks for the kind words.

Glen, like everyone else I'm blown away by the quality and originality of this clip. I don't understand how you can get smooth motion like that handheld. Were you using any kind of device? Or can you give me any tips on how to achieve that kind of a shot. I agree with you that some kind of movement on almost every shot is ideal. Thanks, Jeff

Thank you. I'm going to be adding glidecam reception coverage this season, but all my projects from last season were without any camera stabilizer. I've worked on improving my handheld technique which mainly involves modifying the way I hold my camera. Email me if you want a better explanation.

Also- Mark and Trish Von Lanken are going to be releasing a traiing video that will focus specifically on handheld camera techniques. I highly recommend their training material.

Thank you all for the kind input. I just wanted to let you know I had to pull it to make room for another clip- thus, this link will no longer be active.
