they say that audio is half of what you see in a film. that couldn't be truer with a film like heidi and john's. take a moment to watch the first 15 seconds with your eyes closed. see how long it takes before you feel like you know them or care about them. personally, i last about three and i already want to see what happens.
though john isn't a writer by trade, he often writes heidi some pretty amazing letters. he wrote the reading for the ceremony, a very touching poem on love, and whenever heidi gets a gift - say christmas or a birthday- she is often more excited about the card then of the present itself.
john's father collects antiquities and it is something that john has always been interested in and something he has helped with throughout the years. for the wedding, heidi felt it would be the perfect gift to give john his own antiquities to start a collection of their own.
in the morning john was feeling - i don't want o say nervous, because he wasn't nervous about what was happening - but he wasn't certainly feeling everything that was happening that day in full force. at dinner the night before he told us how he feels that big life events, things like an engagement or a wedding, affect people so much because they are a chance when we can all just stop and appreciate or take in what we mean to somebody else. all day they were both definitely feeling it.
on the tech side, we had three from the sm team shooting with one more shooting BTS for an upcoming canon tutorial. shot mostly on MKIV's with our standard prime kit (14/24/35/50/135). the moving shots are the steadicam zephyr (setup and ready to go two min out of the shipping case :). everything else was all monopod as it happened.
