Ok, so we'd be lying if we told you these two weren't already married. But how cute are they! And think about it...do you really have to be getting engaged or married to make a rad film/music video that celebrates your love? At Iris and Light...we think not.

Our stars of this film are Denise & Johnny Bovee. Denise is hugely talented in her own right...we've been fans of hers forever. Please check out her incredible photography at denisebovee.net.

We wanted something fresh and unique for this film so we decided to shoot it 100% in the dark. This all dark approach gave us the moodiness we were looking for...a bit more edgy and adventurous. The story of a boy and girl escaping out into the night together.

We shot it entirely with two 5D Mark IIs, a 10' Cobra crane, custom Zaza slider, Glidecam HD-2000 and Delkin DDMount-Suction for the car shots. Off-camera lights were portable A/C pin spots and other random video lights.

Lenses used:
35 f/1.4L, 16-35 f/2.8L, 24-70 f/2.8L, 24-105 f/4L IS, 70-200 f/2.8L IS

The star scenes are photo time lapses with a 5D Mark II taking 6-second stills every 15 seconds for an hour. It got cloudy by the time we shot Denise & Johnny on the hilltop (like troopers...at 1am in the freezing cold!) so we comp'd the stars in post. This process included the rotoscoping of 126 frames by hand.

Additional sound FX were recorded with the Zoom H4N. Edited in Final Cut Pro. Manually graded in Color. Full production from shoot to delivery: 36 hours.
