Concept - We wanted to keep the video "spacey" and also dark, so we used a combination of lots of slow mo and stuff sparking and falling all over the place. Oh yea, and also it's about being with your loved one, even when stuff falls down....literally.
I'd post my original video treatment, but it's almost embarrassing how far we deviated from it.
Canon XH A1
Nikon 50mm 1.8f
Stock lens (for all wide shots)
Indirailspro Hand Rails ( best thing EVER!!!)
A flat screen monitor which matched fairly close to camera output
1 Lowel DP light (for that orange/daylight contrast)
Captured and edited in Adobe Premiere
Imported in to After Effects where we did the following:
-Color Corrected with Red Giant's Colorista (amazing plugin)
-Then motion tracked all the shots during and post climax
-Then added dust, debris, and spark elements using VideoCopilot's Action Essentials 2
-Then made it look cool.
