Save The Date Video - fun with dolls (and Dogs)
 
Here is another save the date video and one of my personal favorite.
This time, we play around with their dolls. This is the bride's favorite present form the groom so we included them into their same the date video.
We also planed some scene with their dogs. However on the shooting day, the dogs get really excited and didn't listen to command. So we have to cut most of their scene.

So here is the save the date video.

great video... you seem to always shoot couples who play very well to the camera... I loved the shot of the groom to be "in the bushes"...

Kelsey Emuss January 27th, 2009 07:35 AM

Cute!! As a side note I loved their rings!

Question. How does one get four videos to play on one screen (as in your opening sequence)? I LOVE how that looks.

Is that done in After Effects?

kelsey, trying hard not to cringe at your question... just resize/scale 4 videos and position them as you like on different video tracks.
avoid AE for the simpler stuff like that, trust me! :)


p.s. thought the titles on the clip looked great

REALLY!?!?! It's that simple? REALLY?! lol! This can be done in Premiere Pro? OMG I have soooo much to learn!

Great stuff. I love the look of the footage. Are you using a 35mm adapter? You have great depth of field. Well shot and edited, and the perfect length. Nice work.

I have to say I didn't like the shot of the groom and the "bushes". Don't get me wrong, I laughed a bit, but it also didn't seem to fit with the rest of the video. It just felt a bit too 'out there' for me.

Well thank you very much. I guess the save the date video is something other than traditional wedding video. So those couples who pick this service would be happy to be in front of camera!

Thank you Richard to answer that question.

The four videos was done in FCP by resize and cropping on 4 video tracks. I am sure you can do the same in Premiere Pro

Thank you very much Travis!

This video was using 35mm adapter with Canon FD Lens.

About that in the bushes part. It was the groom's idea and we all love it. I agree that part is a bit 'out there' but this couple can pull it off nicely. While we shot the interview part for the love story. The couple decided instead of do normal interview, they've came up a short comedy/drama about them and make fun of each other. They also make jokes while saying thank you their guess. So I think the bushes part will fit this couple.

Travis Cossel January 27th, 2009 05:56 PM

That's good. It's all about what works for the couple and their audience. I suspected it was okay for them.

The video is " cute", I know it's a preference for the asian market forgot what they call it in Japan but study has shown the Asian ladies strive for cuteness ( Thanks to Oasis HD for the info) and this certainly drives the market to you.

Thank you Noel!

I think in Japan they call it "Kawaii".

I have a question about Save the Date vids in general. How do you offer it to your customers? When do you shoot it? I can imagine that it can take few hours to shoot for just 2-3 mins final vid, so it would be a total waste of time (unless they pay big bucks) if that shooting day wasn't used also for some other project, like Love Story.

How do you do this option from business point of view???

I'd love to offer my customers the same but can't determine how to charge them?

Save the date video is part of our Pre-Wedding Video service. We combine STD, Love story, grown-up photo montage and a Thank you video together as a Pre-Wedding Video Service. We spend about 5-6 hrs withe the couple on recording. So the couple is get 3 videos out of our service. The Price is same as our low-end wedding video package.

I may start a topic on this later!

That's a fair deal - it's probably easier to sell as a 3-in-1 package then each option separate. How many couples out of all booked weddings are getting it?
