Thank you Chris.

Do you have any other clilps posted somewhere I can download? This must have been some wedding; isn't this about your third clip from it? Were all these clips included in their package, or is this something for your own amusement?

Yes, it's my current project. I'm wraping it up this week- it was my last wedding from last year. The following week begins my 06 season. I'm excited and look forward to employing new shooting AND editing techniques.

My question is there someone out there that has some new ideas they would like to show off, something that takes the wedding video to a higher level?

work.
I know what you mean Art.
Without going into boring details, we have been trying to incorporate more "real time" scenes into our montages, i.e. pre ceremonies, bride preps, vignettes, etc.

We are getting very positive feedback from brides, wedding coordinators, wedding industry professionals, etc.

Feel free to visit our website at www.customvideobyterry.com to see some of our latest work.

I still find myself editing slo motion scenes quite a bit, but adding the real time scenes I feel gives the clip personality.

The first 3 clips posted below were edited by Joe, my son and the last clip was shot and edited by me:

Also feel free to comment or criticize :-)

Hello, everyone. Although i'm not new to the whole forum thing, I have never posted any of my wedding work. I notice some of you are doing some cool inovative stuff so i thougt i might toss mine into the pot. Let me know what you think!

It's a little on the edgy side. Not all clients like it but the clients that do, really like it.

Wow, glen, that was really cool. That was just the title sequence? HA! I can tell you put some time in. How did you do the T.V. flicker thing? I'm assuming it's a filter. Is it an AE filter? Thanks and good work!

It's a credits montage that'll more than likely be used in a "special features" or "extras" section on the disc. The TV simulator is a filter built into Vegas4, 5 and now the new 6.

My Submission

jonathan - that super 8 stuff is... SUPER! I really like that look. Is it expensive to get the film processed? I have no idea what costs are involved.


OK I'll throw my hat in the ring. This is not from a ceremony. It's what the industry calls a "Love Story" video, but I like to call it a SweetHearts Film. I would say this is alternative to your standard slow-mo stuff.

It's not my best work, but it's the only thing I've got accessible right now.
Download and enjoy.(sorry about the compression)

Wow, I have going into full blown Compositing envy. Dude that is the coolest freshest slideshow I have ever seen. I hopped onto your site and checked out some other stuff too. That Birth announcement? Wow man! I bet they were stoked to give that to family members. What compositing software are you using? Dang, I think ill sign up for some summer courses at the Art Institute. :)

thanks! I shoot 2-3 rolls a wedding. Mix it up a bit. Film+Processing is about $25 for a roll of TriX. we have a great lab in Seattle (Shameless plug) Forde Labs. One of the best in the country for super8

Keep up the good work!

Wow , its nice to see this topic got so much attention, which also lets me know, other people seem to feel similiar to what I do. Thanks for everyones input, and I will spend some time this week to check out everyones work.

So far I have watched Terry Taravella's demo video, and really liked it alot. Its nice to see some fresh edting and pacing ideas, to waht seems to be an industry becoming a little stagnate.

The quality level of videos used to vary greatly, but now, just about everyone has nicely shot, nicely composed beautiful 3-ccd shots, just the pacing and editing of the final products seems to be very repetitive.

It's nice to see some people are interested, like me, in breaking the mold.
Keep this discussion alive, and lets see what people are up too.

Glen, I know it is a little out of date, but I missed this in the original post, any chance of reposting? I would love to see 'something a little different' from you, everything else I see of yours is great, and I would like to see some of the effects you have described.

BTW, I have watched all of the active links from this thread, and I must say WOW, some fantastic talent!

Hear, hear! Repost it Glen!

Whatever happened to Chris' offer of server space for you Glen? I'm relatively new here and I'd like to see some of your previous work.

I appologize, I have since deleted the clip from my hd. It won't be the last credits montage I'm editing though. I'll post one in the future.

PS Terry T. and gang are quite talented- Ms.BattleOfTheEditorsWINNER

Hey Glen, hope you are recovering from all the rowdyness from WEVA Expo ;)

Art, I don't think I can post inline images, so here's a link to a screen grab from an average Canadian wedding:
