Marrying Slow Motion Footage and a Fast Upbeat Song

I was watching my latest masterpiece, and it just dawned on me that I have successfully ‘married’ slow motion footage and a fast-paced, upbeat song!

This particular wedding video recaps only the ceremony. As there was no reception to film for this event. The video is mostly slow motion footage of the ceremony, with the exception of a handful of pre ceremony shots. It did help that some of the pre shots were quick action cinematography.

So how do I successfully marry a fast, upbeat pop song to slow motion footage? By how the clips cut together! You see, cutting [or editing as most commonly referred to] is my forte and I consider myself quite good at it. Having produced more than 1000 wedding films, I better be good!

The above wedding video was shot at the Stanford Memorial Church. Also known as MemChu for your Alumni. I have shot many weddings here and really know the layout. If you are having your wedding ceremony at MemChu please contact me so I can tell you the church’s requirements. For example, Stanford Church does not allow the videographer to use any wireless mics. Also, videographers must use the elevated balconies. I will tell you much more when we speak.

Until then,
