Los Angeles, CA – Charles and Hannah’s Korean Wedding
With two videographers, we went to Charles and Hannah’s wedding at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Los Angeles, CA. In many of our wedding video productions, it’s easy to say that it was the venue, or the flowers, or the food, or the decor that can be the most memorable. But really, it is the simple things that we may never forget. One of the reasons why wedding videography is so important are because of these little things that no photo can ever capture alone.
Before the ceremony, we simply asked Charles and Hannah separately to say a little something to the camera. When Hannah said that she was just so excited and looked forward to waking up in the morning next to Charles as well as just do the little things together like grocery shopping really put into context what this wedding was really about. It basically marked the beginning of a new era of two people’s lives together. As corny as it may sound, we sometimes have to look past as just being a videographer but consider ourselves as personal video historians. Because in essence, that’s how important this first day of their lives really is. History.
A prestigious public relations firm based out of San Mateo, CA asked us to create a highlight reel for Palm. So they gave us a bunch of Hollywood video clips that some how showed or even featured the product. And when I say Hollywood clips, I mean actual hit TV shows and major motion pictures.
We took a look at what their last videographer did for them. Basically, they simple just took clips of those movies and TV shows and played a popular song in the background. They would then show the video to Palm in sort of a team building rally. But their complaint about previous highlight videos was that they just didn’t excite them enough. So we took on the challenge of making the video much different.
So what we did is that we edited all of the diverse Hollywood video clips and spliced them all together to create a trailer of a fake motion picture featuring the Palm Treo. This was definitely a challenge because we had comedic movies and TV shows as well as crime and action TV shows and movies. But in the end, I think we really pulled it off.
Los Angeles, CA – Graduation Play at Middle School
To capture his son’s last play before he graduated, Gary hired us for our videography services to record this production at Burroughs Middle School which is based in Los Angeles, CA. While recording this musical, we were so impressed of how they all sang, danced, and acted. Even their stage props, costumes, and make up were well advanced especially for this age group. A lot of time and hard work really went into all of this and it really showed in the quality of this musical and dramatic production.
Although they had only booked one videographer to capture this event, we were still able to get some pretty good shots. However, because there was only one camera it limited the variety of camera angles such as close-ups. You see, by only having one videographer and one camera, we have to be conservative with our shots just to be sure we don’t miss anything off camera.
