2 things I need to figure out...

at 18.20, I do a quick edit style for the build up in the song that ends with a build up then bang. Not sure if I like it entirely.


The very end, last minute, im not sure i like how it ends, what do you think.

Opinions? Thanks. Still rough with edits ive done since but its the bulk. Thanks.

Re: 2 things I need to figure out...

The aspect is off, looks squeezed? but regardless... I loved it.

Of course there are personal preferences that I would differ with in some of the editing but it's trivial - the B&G are going to love how you shot it and what you did with the edit.

The improvements I would look to are ...you need J-cuts between songs, and you would be better off selecting the glide shots that don't cast shadow on the bride's white dress.

I really think you did a nice job.

You did them a good service, its not pretentious, shows everyone having fun, and the fast pace means that everytime they watch it they will find something new.

Re: 2 things I need to figure out...

apologies for the noob questions and comments.

what are J-cuts?


sorry, but are all those de-focused bits supposed to be included? i like it except for those!

would this be called cinematic ?

Re: 2 things I need to figure out...

J cut is where the audio for the 2nd clip begins at the end of the first clip before that transitions to the 2nd clip.

Thats the downside to DSLRS, with manual focus its tough to be perfect with the focus. If I took out all the shots with any focus issues, I would be very limited in footage for the film.


Thanks for the comments.
