Irish Xmas Wedding - Opening Sequence

Hi All,

Here's a link to the opening sequence of a wedding I shot in a small, Irish village on the 27th of Dec.

[removed - new link below]

I can only offer a Quicktime file but thanks in advance to anyone interested enough to have a look. All critique is most welcome!

Cheers,

Mossy

First link was corrupt so here's a new link - thanks Paul! Now. I'm off to ring in the New Year!!!

In my opinion, too many "establishing" shots without enough people in the sequence. I feel that more of the characters should have been introduced during the clip rather than a small random portion at the end.

Camerawork looked really good though...nice moves and steady, you obviously know how to operate the camera!

I liked the soundtrack.

I am inclined to agree. The opening is probably going to have people fast-forwarding through it on the second watching. And wedding videos are generally watched at least twice in my experience.

But you certainly have a deft touch with the camera moves.

Would like to see more.

I love the "homey" feeling of what you had so far.. gave a good feeling for the season, the location, and religious feelings evoked, are, I assume, intended. Great camera work, but I need to know more about the central characters,,,

Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to watch and offering critique.

JOE: I really appreciate your helpful feedback and thanks for the compliments on camera work! You also make a very valid point about too many EST. SHOTS - though it may be worth pointing out that the majority of the 150 guests will watch the final wedding video and I'm hoping that they will appreciate my humble efforts to capture and record their little village.

STEVEN: I have given your comments careful consideration over the past day and I will continue to weigh them against all feedback from past and future clients. Many thanks for watching and for the kind words!

CHRIS: Your kind words and compliments a much appreciated, Chris, and with all the comments in mind from you and other members, next time I post a clip I'll be sure to offer something that centers around the B&G and Wedding Party.

Once again, thanks for watching and I've found all your comments most helpful.
