We were asked by Chirag & Sheena to create a storytelling video that could be played at their London reception. Now that their reception has past, I am proud and able to show you the video we created. It was just myself and Toby crewing this. I won’t introduce the couple because this video does it for me.
VIVIDA’s aim was to create a video that gives the audience an insight into Chirag & Sheena, personalities and history. Naturally I wanted the video to be entertaining and have a unique approach to other videos.
We filmed this video in Canon C-LOG on the 1DC with a few clips from a 5D3 using Cinestyle. The Canon Legria Mini was used for a couple of creative shots. I decided to take the extra step with this video and grade it (adjust the colours) in Davinci Resolve 10. The C-Log was a joy to grade in comparison to the Cinestyle profile. The difficulty with the Cinestyle was that the fall off between the clipping highlights and the upper mid-tones was quite sudden. In this video you will see featured clips from the MOVI M10 with the 1DC at 50 fps at 1080p for slow motion. I was really happy with the feel of it.
This short story was edited in FCP and took me quite a while to map out all of the audio content. I feel it was worth it. I hope you do too.
