Getting Ready! 

I am so excited for the 2010 wedding season. I've recently had several final meetings with my couples to go over their day and to dream about new and unique ways to approach their film. In addition to weddings throughout the year I get the opportunity to work with a variety of cool clients on a range of projects, i.e. corporate, commercial, industrial, documentary, editorial, and so on. As fun as there are, weddings are still by far my favorite production to work on. I get to use all the toys, techniques, and creativity involved in other projects but then combine them with an emoiton-filled day and tell the story of two unique personalities who are starting a beautiful new chapter of their lives together.

If you know me you know I love our dogs, and because they are around, and because I would film them anyway, they are my test subjects when it comes to new equipment and techniques. Not everything translates directly into a "practical" wedding use but you never know. Maybe in 2010 there will be an underwater wedding.

Car Mount. Emma and I headed to Judy and Kaisers favorite place on earth Alimagnet Dog Park in Burnsville. It's one of the top 10 dog parks in the country for a reason! For about the last 10 minutes of the road trip the pups can barely contain themselves when they figure out where we're headed. This seemed like a good opportunity to try out an HD mini camera that can suction mount to a car. This could have some cool applications for limo/bus/trolley rides and more.

Underwater Camera. Like I said you never know. And knock on wood if we have a rainy day or any water-based event we will be ready. Also, is it just me or is watching dogs feet underwater hilarious?

Time Lapse. I could see some really cool uses of this technology - especially at the reception. A series of pictures is taken over an extended period of time and merged together into video. Emma and I were lucky enough to travel to Paris for our honeymoon, and of course I couldn't help but bring a camera. It's a good thing she loves this stuff or I might be considered annoying. 

Random. Here is a combination of some of the above techniques. Emma is just about half way through Nursing school. I've not personally tried it, but from what I've observed Nursing school is not joke. It's intense. It's like everything is a matter of life and death or something. Emma treats it as such and works hard, therefore when she has a break we make sure to vacation hard. Here is a ridiculous video from spring break 2010. My favorite part is when she demonstrates her karate.
