Teaser and photo booth videos (wedding)
On Saturday we worked a wedding, our team, as videography (all day), photo booth, up lighting, and DJ. No, not just the two of us.

When we do a photo booth, along with photo prints on the spot, guests can leave their email and we send a link to the Facebook gallery. I posted it the next day, before noon, and in 24 hours the video version of the photos has 400+ views.

The thought of all those people seeing our name again, combined with the thread about a trailer/teaser put me in a mind to try making a teaser. Here is today's effort, about 3-4 hours of extra work I wouldn't usually do for a wedding. Since I'm caught up in my editing, I'm hoping to have their full wedding videos done by Christmas.

The photo booth pictures are a bit sloppier than we like. We didn't have room to setup our full backdrop, and needed to use it because there is a big, red fire extinguisher mounted on the wall where they put us.

Hi Robert, not much to say. Really liked the tripod shots at the start of the video and the letter writing sequence. Thought many of the shots later were elegant.

If you'd had clearer audio for the bride's letter, I think that would have made a difference. Makes me want to bring lapel mics to every prep from now on.

Noted, Adrian. That was me being unprepared - too far away from my bag with the mic to grab it when the bride walked by to sneak off and write the letter. Here its an on-camera Rode.

Four years into this job, and I'm really trying to eliminate those sort of easy-to-fix mistakes.

Well, there's downsides to lav mics as well, so it's a catch 22 -- can get in the way of genuine emotion if you say to her, "Wait up. I'm going to mic you." Might take her out of it. Then the mic might be visually distracting to the viewer, and take them out of it as well.
