I created this video for my son & new daughter Rebecca as a wedding gift. It represents from birth to their wedding day, the basic paths in life they took from places they lived, how they met, and where they went after graduation from college before uniting again. (Caleb took a trip for 15 months to South Korea & visited multiple countries there, which would have taken forever to do, not to mention his overseas studies in 4 counties.) I made virtually all the props in this video, and painstakingly had to move every prop (some in different timing than others) to create this video. I took over 6000 photos to reduce it down to about 1200, and interjected about 550 photos, in which I took most of Caleb's & some of Becca's. I have invested up to 1000 hours over a 5 month period in order to produce this video. I give all credit & rights to the following awesome artists in whose music I used in the creation of this production: Gary Lewis & the Playboys - Green Grass Steven Curtis Chapman - Somewhere in the World Daniel Boone - Beautiful Sunday Reliant K - Must Have Done Something Right+ More details
This is a stop-gap image production I produced for my son, Caleb & new daughter, Becca's wedding on May 26, 2013. This video portrays their life from birth to present, and the different places they moved to in the process. It is composed of a selection of about 1,150 still shot photos I took, selected from about 6,000 shots. I interjected about 550 photos of which: 1) Becca's mom, Ruth sent me, 2) Caleb & Becca took, or had taken of them, and 3) photos I took of both of them & over Caleb's lifetime. I had so many photos to choose from their lives that I had to spread this show out to almost 13 minutes with 4 songs (a lot had to do with my image shots). I worked on this project for over 5 months & made every prop myself (including the map) with the exception of some decals I cut out & some small things I purchased. I would guess that I have 500 - 1000 hours into making the video. This is only the second slide show I ever produced, and the first time I ever tried to do this sort of production with stop-gap photos. There is still some room for improvement (too much time between songs), but I just ran out of time! I do not own any rights to the music. The artists are available upon request. I had a huge learning curve that caused me to redo many hours of material. For these 2 people, I would do it all over again, and then some. So sit back, grab a drink & enjoy watching "THE STORY OF CALEB & BECCA" . . .+ More details
