Summarize the events of a great celebration in one song.
Editing highlight videos for weddings was my favorite thing to do. For one thing, the bride and groom chose a song that meant a lot to them — and then I got to work with so many, many memorable moments as content. Timing scenes to the music was fun. I would scrub through all the footage, then listen to the song, close my eyes and imagine how the video would go.
In songs, there are powerful moments, so the object of the game is to time the powerful scenes of the event to the powerful moments of the song. Editing one of these highlight videos would take me about 8 hrs.
Videotaped and edited about 30+ events – a portion of those were close friends and family too which made the service even more meaningful. Missed a lot of family parties attending these weddings, but what an adventure being able to go to so many different locations around the Bay Area and eat great food.
Here’s more – enjoy!
