In a world where people from far reaching corners of the globe are able to communicate instantly and easily through the internet… where videos are shared and viewed every day online… videos are now more important than ever. No longer does your wedding video come to you on bulky VHS, it comes on sleek DVD… shot in HD, and of course we upload the highlights to you online so you can share it with your friends and family. And so, taking it one step further, Small Moments Studios is now adding a Save The Date Movie Trailer to the products that we offer. We’ll work with you to come up with a concept that works with your personality to tailor the video to you. We can create something documentary style, romantic comedy, action, however you like!
Brian and Kim were our first takers… we spent a cold cold afternoon with them working through the general idea for the shoot and then shooting it. We had one afternoon to get this all as Brian was leaving to go to Germany a day or so after the shoot, but that just added to the excitement. We had a great time filming this and hearing back from Kim… she loved it. In addition to sending this to her friends and family, she might be showing it on a big screen at the wedding before her entrance. Now that sounds cool.
I definitely look forward to the next one we do. Sure, we’ve shot video before, but normally we’re capturing the natural action and small moments of your big day as they happen. This was the first time we had to create and direct something as specific as this. We’re ready to create another one… we’re just getting warmed up! So who’s next?
Small Moments Studios presents Brian and Kim’s save-the-date Movie Trailer. Kim and Brian are a great couple that doesn’t get the opportunity to spend much time together at the moment because he is stationed (currently) in Germany. They are engaged to be married July 24th, 2010 at West Point. This is their story.
