I honestly can't tell you just how thoroughly RAD Darius and Violet are. Most couples would LOSE THEIR MINDS and throw things at me if I delivered an edit this stylized and aggressive. Speed ramps and a gazillion jump cuts are NOT what your typical bride and groom are looking for.
Darius and Violet are huge fans of the show Archer, and they LOVE spy movies -- their dog is named James Bond! -- so after consulting with them, and designing a website for them (dariusandviolet.com), I pitched them the idea of shooting and editing the highlight film as if it were a trailer to Skyfall.
They were ALL OVER IT. They gave me a tremendous amount of freedom to play around with filming, pacing, and music selection, and I'm enormously grateful to them for letting me have so much fun!
And I'm happy to report that they were really thrilled with the results.
It makes me feel great knowing that I made something that brought them happiness!
