Cancun Wedding – Tiffany and Ly – Same Day Edit (w/ Furious Photographers)

by Vu Bui on April 27, 2009

Lan and I were flown to Cancun by Doug and Lawrence (Furious Photographers) to shoot a photographer’s promo video of them. They somehow booked two weddings back to back in Cancun… with a Day After session after the second wedding (which actually won’t happen until tomorrow).

As part of our project we were also delivering a short video for each couple, so we were essentially shooting two videos at each wedding. For Tiffany and Ly, we decided to do a same-day edit of their AMAZING wedding incorporating photos shot by Doug and Lawrence. Their photos were great, and we got some wonderful footage. I suppose you’d call this a same-day fusion-video, using both photos and video together instead of one or the other or two separate presentations.

We’ll be doing a full edit in the coming weeks, but this is what we showed at the reception, thankfully to a oohs and aahs then a wonderful applause at the end. Tiffany and Ly were literally a dream couple to work with… not just by having a gorgeous wedding but as people who were genuine, easy going and just plain fun.

TECH: Obviously there was no time for adjustments, effects or transitions, those will come later. For those wondering, it was shot on a 5D mark II and a Canon HV20 on a Steadicam Merlin, edited in Final Cut Pro, exported and sent to iMovie to add the photos (because it’s easy!). The video was presented on a MacBook Pro to the guests and delivered to the couple on an iPod Touch. Furious Photographers don’t fool around.

MUSIC: 2012 – Story of A Boy – music.podshow.com
(the song is temporary, we actually used a Sigur Ros song for the presentation, but needed to quickly choose something else for us to post online)

Enough talk, watch the video.
