When the time comes to film an event, having great sceneries and setup, is always a plus. Having people living the moment is also a plus, and a much more important one. Having both, is what makes things work the best way they could. We find ourselves in Pavliani, a village outside Lamia and though we've heard the rumours about the natural beauty of the place, we weren't prepared for the rest, the people, the settings, the excitement, the emotion, the party after the ceremony.
Actually we were prepared, but you know what we mean.
So, we kept filming and filming and when we started editing this short trailer, we discovered that there were too many things that we should leave out for now. The quantity of great moments captured is mind-boggling. So what we tried to focus to little Paraskevi but also to her sister Konstantina, the two girls who were, without a doubt, the great stars of that wonderful day.
This time we tried a double voice-over, so we can tell a story from the parents' side. For that, special thanks should go to Bob Carter and Thandi Murray for their always incredibly expressive voices. Also a huge thanks to Mellissa Briley who greatly helped us with the words.
Filmed with Sony FS100, VG20 and A77, with an Edelkrone slider, a Varizoom shoulder mount and Glidecam 4000.
