We featured Ewa and Alex’s engagement photos on the blog on June 5th, but as you can imagine, video sometimes takes a little bit more time, so it wasn’t quite ready right there and then. But a month after, it’s ready and approved by Ewa (and Alex, I imagine… hehe!) and I can share it with you! This is a no-dialogue/interview edit. To me, the neatest thing about it is Ewa’s slightly off-key choice of music (‘The Only One’ by The Black Keys)… at first I thought it may be too dramatic, but after cutting images to it, and giving the piece a slightly vintage-y look, I actually really like the effect!
Well, I won’t keep you any longer… just wanted to share. Maybe it’ll give some of you ideas (i.e. if you really like your dogs, why not bring them along?). If you like it, leave a comment or share it. Or ask questions if you want? In any case, that’s it for now. Take care! – Christian
November 12, 2012: last wedding of the year, the weather was still nice in Toronto, the venue was gorgeous, and the couple were friends of a friend. Perfect conditions, so it was all good!
And in fact, the day was a breeze – as it usually is! – as Bowen, MK and myself (the One² Film team for this one) captured everything from the make-up pow-wow to the tea ceremony, from the boutonnière installation to a math game designed to determine wether engineers or accountants were better with numbers – as it turns out, the engineers cheated and were disqualified (lol). There were even teddybears strapped to the hood of an SUV, and a lot of games that consisted in making Patrick, the groom, suffer (carrying his best man while walking on a reflexology mat?). But he survived it all and, at the end of the day, what I remember wasn’t any specific event that occurred that day, but those little candid moments when they’d look at each other in between games, and smile.
I wish Wendy and Patrick all the best in 2012, and for many years to come. And the same to you too! Cheers,
This fall we wanted to go with the kids to the Toronto Zoo… Turns out that they changed the times on us. So there we were, 5pm in the afternoon, beautiful fall day and nowhere to go. We drove around for a bit and finally stumbled on a small playground. The kids frowns turned to smiles and they hit the swings. I had my camera and was itching to do a short video with it. Here’s the result:
