Way to go John! that must have taken quite the effort...it usually takes me about 10 hours (and lots of agony) to come up with a 3-4 minute highlight clip so this is the bee's knees :)

Hi John...good work. It appears from watching this clip you invested a lot of time to produce the final edit.
Can you tell us how much time YOU spent?
Is there a secret to pushing out this edit in a reasonable time.
I love the concept.

But since you asked, here's my first attempt at it:

Thanks Tom. I'm guessing I spent a solid 20 hours on it, maybe a little more. I'm not the fastest editor in the world, for sure. I basically choose the best sound I've got, roughly try to arrange it so that it forms some sort of narrative, and then build the edit around that, adding the shorter natural sound breaks and music montages. Not sure if this is the most efficient way; I'm still trying to get my head around this kind of edit and the workflow because it's so different from what I had been doing.

Thanks for watching Simon. I shoot primarily with an HMC150, although I've got a few GH1 shots in there, and the second camera on the ceremony was an XHA1.
