Here’s a special Friday treat for all of you.
I wasn’t planning on writing anything up for today (and this definitely won’t be any type of profound article) but there are a couple of things that definitely need to be brought to your attention.
First we’ll address the item that actually relates somewhat to the relative theme of this blog.
Last night a friend, and former “co-worker” [Kate - @LilAngelK8], of mine posted a video. A brilliant video. An idea I want to steal for myself eventually. Considering Kate was one of my favorite people to deal with while working out in LaLa Land I couldn’t NOT share this with others.
Check it out for yourself:
Again I say, brilliant, no? A ‘movie trailer’ to celebrate an engagement!
I’ve been involved in film and video production for over a decade, shooting wedding videos for almost just as long, and never have I encountered pure genius like this. I may have to “bogart” the idea and begin adding it to my wedding video packages.
Who knows, some day I may actually be lucky enough to make one of these for myself.
One can hope…that the future Mrs. will be completely down with something like this. She’ll have to be an incredibly understanding woman as I’d also like to hold a video camera while I’m watching her walk down the aisle at our wedding. This way I’ll always be able to see how she looked, from my perspective, while coming towards me, ready to become my wife.
Second item on the agenda – if you plan on going to see a movie this weekend please go see Texas Chainsaw 3D.
I’m pushing this because I am one (1) degree connected to this flick. One of my best friends has spent the better part of, at least, 2 years working on this film. I’m incredibly proud to say that I not only know the Associate Producer on a major motion picture, but I also made movies with this guy in college. We co-produced a TV show together (with another buddy) on our student TV station for 2 years, and have continued to work on some projects together even almost 10 years after graduation.
For example, the project that reunited us since graduation was a short we did back in 2007 that was a submission for a 24-hour competition hosted by Apple. That’s right, 24 hours to come up with a concept, shoot it, edit it, and score it. It became a collaborative effort of us alumni and current university students.
Life can be very funny at times. Other times you want to give it a strong right hook. Timing worked against us living in the same city again; meaning he didn’t up moving to LA until roughly 3 months after I moved away from LA.
However, we do still get the chance to get together a couple of times each year. I try to get out to LA once a year so he obviously has one of the couches I crash on during those travels.
So there you have it. A two-for-one deal; love and friendship.
How about you? Have you had any interesting and different wedding experiences?
