Jessica and James met at UC Santa Barbara while attending film school there. They were absolutely awesome to work with in that they were totally candid in all of their interactions. I just had to be in the right place at the right time. That simple. So the 16mm film camera he has isn't just a prop, he legitly owns that piece. I brought the crane jib on my car, not knowing if I was going to use it or not, but I couldn't resist after seeing the vineyard and pretty white flowers in the grass. The vineyard is actually where their wedding is taking place so everything in this short film has true meaning to them.
Shot on the 5DMk2 and the 7D with a bunch of Canon L lenses. Mostly the 100mm Macro IS F2.8 L and the 24-105mm F4 L. Conformed to 24P. Igus slider, Cobra crane, Glidecam HD 2000, Bogen sticks, and my buddy John who knows how to get money shots.
A little while ago we put the word out to entice some fun young couples to do a shoot with us. Lauren and Ben showed up with bell and whistles, and bikes, and twister, and a bag of good times. It's always fun to go out on the edge and try something new or to climb a higher tree as in this video. Really, who wants to see people kissing and making out the whole time? I say be fun, quirky, and romantic all at the same time. Check these guys out. Oh ya, I think they've been married for 7 years. Something about married couples is just a lot of fun. This is titled after the song name, but I could use a little more cowbell at the end.
Where to begin on this one...wow. Jessica & Brandon are photographers from Windsor, Ontario, Canada (brandonscottphotography.com). They're already married. They contacted us to make a promotional video in our Engagement Film style that they could use to promote their photo business. We dig that 'cause there are no rules when it comes to making cool stuff and having fun with cool people. :)
So they flew in from Canada and met us at a remote location in the Sierra Mountains of California at June Lake. Talk about a rad spot! We had such an amazing time. Mountains, lakes, bonfires, canoes, torches, cliff dives...and the list goes on.
All three guys on our IRIS AND LIGHT crew made this one happen...lots of logistics and crazy shots to set up. We wanted to blow this one out of the water and we think we made a pretty solid film.
