Highlight Clip for Review

Here are two clips from my most recent wedding project. Any suggestions or comments are welcome on the highlight clip as I have not finished with the project yet and can still make changes. BTW, this was the first wedding I've seen where the groom had his grandfather as one of his groomsmen.

For the "Flower Girl Cam" clip I brought along my old Canon ZR45. After getting permission from the flower girls parent's, I handed her my camera, gave her some brief instructions and turned her loose. Here's the link.

Thanks for any input or suggestions on the highlight clip in advance.

Sorry. The server on my powweb site has been up and down all weekend. It was up when I posted. Give it a try later. Thanks for trying.

Chris,
I thought you produced a very solid video for the couple. Video is just an avocation for me so take my comments accordingly. Very impressed with your title fonts and colors. I think your beginning of the church venue set up shots could have been done differently and even incorporated after the title. Most of your other uses of camara movement were done well. Audio was very good. What did you use? Interesting idea and implementation of the Zoe cam.
I have to think you would have some satisfied clients. Thanks for sharing, it's always a learning experience for me. Dennis

Dennis,

Thanks for your comments. The priest was wearing an iRiver with a Giant Squid mic. The interviews and vows used a Sennheiser 100 wireless system.

Loved the idea of the Zoe cam. I've gotten so many new ideas from this forum.

Great stuff Chris. I liked your use of voice-overs and moving shots. Added a great deal of depth to the piece. The only thing I felt was missing was the inclusion of tight close-up shots. It felt like the tightest you'd get were medium to medium close-up shots. That shot of her putting her hands on his head (great shot btw) would have been amplified emotionally if you were zoomed tighter cropping only their faces. A little too much head-room on the talking head interviews but not too bad. Overall I think it's a solid piece with lots of very good elements. I can see your inspirations. Thanks for sharing.

PS The Zoe cam is brillaint.
