I have seen more and more wedding trailers on the net. It's a great way to build anticipation of the completed wedding movie, much like hollywoods trailers.

I know some videographers make a trailer the weekend or week after the wedding and then email the link to the Bride, who then shares it with all of her friends. It's great advertising.
Great idea. I suppose that it would be nice if you are doing a same day edit screen presentation to ended that way.

Then it made me wonder if a cameraman goofed by turning on 300+ watt light at the wrong moment. At any rate, if it was a special effect, I was lost when the father's face was illuminated with a freeze frame.

Otherwise, I was completely mesmorized by the clip - cudos to you both!

Warm Regards, Michael
Hi Michael,
Thanks for the kind words. I originally had that shot in 50 percent. It was okay, but I wanted a little more.
Musically that hit had the chord change and the bell ring like the previous two hits, but it also had a cymbal roll. That's when I decided to put the clip in one percent to take advantage of the flash.

Perhaps if I change the speed so the flash hits and then goes away it would look better.

Thanks for the observation.

Thanks,

Hi Dave,
Julie gave Caleb a sword on their wedding day with those words engraved on it. Yes that's right, a sword. They are big Brave Heart fans.

Mark,

That is so cool. Makes perfect sense to me. Read "Wild at Heart" and you'll understand why.
