After a recent wedding for a couple that I was connected to on Facebook, I started thinking a bit differently about what I can do to keep the energy of the wedding day going and allow friends and family to experience a little bit of what I observed and recorded as a videographer. Not wanting to let the photographers have all the fun of instant feedback, I wanted to contribute in my own way. Therefore, I started putting together a highlight video within a couple of hours.
Knowing the footage intimately, I was able to capture those scenes I would use, set them to the right music, add a few classy effects and encode it for immediate distribution. Of course, this still takes quite a few hours. But since I'm not working on all of the footage, my first few hours are the most crucial ones to getting a great final trailer. There are so many great and emotional shots to choose from...but you've got to really focus on those that tell the story best. Within a half-day of the wedding, I was able to post this video on Facebook to share with Grace and Russ.
