Fast Paced Non-Traditional Edit

I offer a "Credits Montage" add-on to all packages. This is an example...

I dunno i've never really seen that done before. I really liked that. Of course I dunno how good that would work with a bunch of uptight people.

Yeah, he knows I'm kiddin. I've already raved about it with him! Evidently there are plenty of folk loose enough to do that kind of work with judging by the work of David Mathew Bonner...he seems to bring out whatever is supressed within an individual, and Glen seemed to catch a bunch that were primed for it!

Yeah a montage such as this can only be considered if the group is young hip and fun-loving which incidently defines at least 90% of young couples and their friends. The majority of the wedding video is serious and dramatic, it's nice to have a contrasting piece to convey the energy and fun of the day.

Cool! Looks like the opening to a new reality sitcom, "Friends Getting Married". Nice work.

Trick

Glen,

What is your trick to getting people to "perform" for your camera instead of shying away from it? Is it beer? Or are you coaxing this madness out of them?

It really stes the pace for the start of a super fun wedding day, very hip and modern and would definately suit the more younger couple.....like they are.
A fun edit to watch, good job.

Hi Glenn

Loved it...

never shot a wedding .. never will, although I said that when I worked as a Press photographer and ended up doing a couple of mates wedding's in B&W.....

As others have said this looks like really neat title shoot to the real thing.... follow that up with a Sit Com wedding and it would be really cool...

Loved the sync of music and video shots...

cheers
Gareth

My thoughts exactly! It is rare for me to get a group to perform like this in front of the camera.. maybe like 1 in 10.

Do you find that a lot of your clients opt for that sort of credits feature? Or may be I am assuming this is an add-on feature. In any case, I am sure that some weddings just don't have the personalities for that sort of credit style. IS it common? Rare?
