Wedding Day Edit from 12-30-06

Here is the WDE we showed at last Saturday's wedding reception. It was part of a growing up montage so I picked it up with the last few pictures before going into the wedding day footage.

The Bride was a Josh Groban fan, so her taste directed us in the musical selection. The church did not allow a manned camera at the front so I used the remote controlled Grizzly Pro system.

Here is a portion of the MOB's comments she sent in an email.
"Thank you just isnít adequate. WOW! I believe the DVD at the reception is what most of the guests will remember. They showered us with comments about that. I am thrilled to give all of them your name when they ask."

For those of you who have not tried a Wedding Day Edit, also known as a Same Day Edit, Instant Edit, etc, I highly encourage you to consider looking into them. They are a great marketing tool and many, including Trisha and I beleive they are one of the ways to change the perception of wedding videography. Many people have never seen a great wedding video and a WDE is a wonderful way to show 200-500 of the Bride & Groom's closest friends how good wedding videography can be.

Trisha will be moderating a panel on Same Day Edits at 4EVER's Video 07 on Wednesday at 5:45.

There is more than one way to create a Same Day Edit, and this symposium is a great way to see how many of the leaders in our field create and use SDE's.

Question: You showed this as it is posted her, at the reception? At what point during the reception did you show this, because doesn't part of this contain the reception?

I probably sound dumb, but I was curious.

Hi Steven,

No, it doesn't sound dumb.

Yes we showed this video at the reception. The edit was done about 1.5 hours after the First Dance. It's just one part of the Wow Factor.

That made sense. So did you actually render this video into something or shoot it straight out of your NLE software?

We don't render for a DVD. It takes too long to encode and then burn just for a DVD. We do that after the presentation so the B&G and parents can go home with DVDs.

We use Edius on our laptop, so we just hit the space bar and the video goes out the firewire to the camera in real time. Absolutely no rendering. We use the camera for playback to the projector and sound system.
