My First Video...

I have a Big Name Videographer client of mine (In my "Day Job") quote me starting at 15K....My budget was zero, but I needed to get it out.. So I got in creative mode & just decided to do it all myself...

Here ya go...thoughts?

Looks very professional, Steve. Did you actually film the couple, or is that stock footage? Whichever, it works smile The video enhances the song and the production, which are, of course, the real stars.

Hi Steve...quote me starting at 15K WOW...

The videos is superb my friend and had I been your client, and you did this video for me, I would be 100% satisfied with the results.

Maybe a 2nd or 3rd career for you.

God Bless to all

Roy

Thanks Gavin....I use FINAL CUT PRO X....Someone was gracious to donate some footage of the couple. I shot all of mine outdoors and had an acoustic version I had put on Facebook 4 months ago I was able to sync to. Good thing I always sing the song the same way. I used maybe 30 seconds of stock images, the flowers Candles & 2 women in beginning...Also I caught a break as I unknowingly shot film of myself singing in the mountains not knowing you should have a white backdrop only for what I did. Since the couple was in the mountains you have 2 sets of mountains, mine & the couples....But it fit together..LOL...so even in my mistake it worked and some of the trippiness of the mountains is because you have 2 different locations in the same shot.

To be honest, I was under 2 weeks of inspiration, maybe even "divine" & looking back not quite sure how I did all this, since it was my first video. But I knew enough to stay in creative mode and be tapped into that inspiration..

My job was to get out of the way & figure out how all these pieces were meant to fit together

Thank's for the explain Steve, you blended it exceptionally well and showed how you don't need to spend big dollars to do quality work. Creativity over expenditure !

cheers, niteshift

PS - the missus walked by while I was playing your track and thought it was a well known song, never hearing it before...... huh ... ? It's on the right track. smile
