Weddings, Engagement, 90th Birthday Celebrations, Christenings, FINNING, WorkSafe BC, Baptist Housing, Jubilee Conference 2015, Calgary Stampede, BC Film, VIFF. Oh my! These are just a few projects we have been working on this past summer. The Wedding Shop has been busy to say the least and unfortunately the blog has suffered a little. Until today. Today we blog!
First off, maybe you have noticed we added a few more trailers to our portfolio page. I will start off with David & Christine. I must say, this is one of my all time favorites trailers I have done to date. Typically, the processing time in receiving your highlight trailer is 6 weeks however I basically spent an entire weekend working on this because I was so inspired. I am a bonofide Country girl at heart however I am very cognizant of the idea that my love for the genre is not mutually felt by our clients. In fact if I were to guess-timate, I would say 60% of people dislike this genre of music and when I say dislike, what I really want to say is hate. I do not like to use the word hate but some people REALLY do not like country music and because of this we have yet to publically post a video using a country song. Until now!
Ah, Raise Em Up by Keith Urban ( aka Nicole Kidman's hubby ).
Christine was super open and basically gave us creative control to do whatever we wanted. I suggested the Black & White theme and once we got the thumbs up, there was no turning back. Initially, we used the color scheme the whole way through but then ultimately scaled back a little as we found some things had to be captured in color ie. dress, flowers, cake.
The song for me was what just sealed the deal. The video starts with Christine's father ( who btw basically resembles a James Dean, movie star right out of a Western film ) writing a letter to his daughter. We are then introduced to David & Christine's two beautiful children. To the country lovers out there I am certain the film makes sense. For you non-country enthusiast I suggest listening / watching the video twice and really listen to the lyrics. The song is basically a big ol metaphor incorporating the most important things in life- faith, family and friends.
