The show has already started airing on the East Coast, and will be airing on the West Coast in a few hours. Everyone at The Nate Show was amazing to work with and Nate is an amazing guy! I hope they can find a reason to bring me back at some point!
If you didn't see the show, I was provided with a wedding video for a lovely couple named Kara and Eugen. Like lots of folks, there simply wasn't any budget to hire a professional videographer. What they ended up is pretty typical of what I've personally seen over the years: shaky footage, poorly composed shots, bad audio, etc. I'm not pointing fingers at anyone, it's just the reality of DIY wedding videos.
You can see a sample of their original footage here:
The challenge from Nate's team was to recut her original video (over 40 minutes long) into a 60 second "TV friendly" sized video remix! I received the tapes on a Saturday, and had to fly to the taping in NYC on Monday, so I literally had to work around the clock to make this happen in 48 hours. Normally, I'll spend days working on video edits, so this was a tough, but challenging task.
Since the source video was so poor to start with, I though that going with a 8mm film look would give work with the footage. And since the footage itself was of small resolution, I created a moving matte of her wedding photos to occupy the remaining space in the frame. See the result below:
