My Wedding Sample

This is my second wedding shoot. Please add any helpful comments. Btw, this is a flash movie and requires a high speed connection.

Thanks,
Troy

Great clarity on the video....brilliant colors and great use of the glow effect in some areas. I love the unity candle shot----I've never seen that angle before.

If you want to clean it up a bit, you should use the tripod more. Also, 98% of this vid is in slow motion---break up the monotony by using some "real time" video, black and white, and letterboxing.

Very good work for your 2nd shoot though.....

Thanks Sheldon. I agree. Some of the shots were with a monopod that I was using for the first time. I will try to use less slo mo in my next one ;-)

prety schmick for a 2nd effort :)

one thing that first got me though, was the ministers prompting.
for voiceover work, and for audio as clean as this, you can easily get rid of hte minister and time the vow audio sequence and make sound a little more natural (without prompting. )

Also keep an eye out on standing on a shot for too long. U can utilise this time for other shots.

Colour is awesome and motion seem ok, just watch the stuttering on extended slowmotions

One thing i have noticed about US ministers however is that they present themselves like TV presenters.. lol thats a good thing as they dramatise teh whole event.. our minsiters here in Aus are so boring..

Really good work.

I think it looks really good, the couple should be happy. I agree with the tripod use I know some times you have to run and gun and you just cant have one.

Excellent

After watching the video, it looks like this is your 20th wedding shoot. I enjoyed it. The music was just just perfect.
One thing, the lighting gear was very visible in some of the shots, you might want to avoid including those shots with the highlights.
Overall the video looks very clean and the music again was perfect.
Good job and keep it up.

In addition to some of the other posters, I would just like to add that the shot from the balcony towards the end you could see the photagraphers flash bouncing up and down till she got to the center of the pue. You could either cut it sooner or crop the bottom a hair.

Other than that it was really good. I loved the color and crispness and the shot selections.

Video

Sorry for slightly (largly) off track ....

Firstly, video looks great - especially for only a 2nd shoot.

But, can I ask how you have managed to get the video on the site. I am trying to put some clips on a site (have used Adobe Premier Pro 2) - and am looking for exactly what you have done, but can't find out how to.

Any help would be appreciated.....

Hi Lee,

I rendered to mpeg2 using the Sony Vegas video editor. I then import the mpeg2 video into Flash 8 and export from flash as a .flv file. I then ftp the flv,swf, and html file to me server. This is what I use, but there are other software that create .flv files from mpeg,avi, or .mov files. I hope this helps.
