So new things are happening in the wedding world. Partly these “films” are made possible by the new HDSLR technology. But another thing is the young couples who have found a new way to express their love. This would have seemed unreal to me just 5 years ago. These two videos are wonderful examples of what creative filmmakers are doing to bring help create a whole new experience for couples who want to do something uniquely original and creative with their wedding. Taking nothing away from these talents, in fact I am truly impressed. See what Aesthetica can do to make you wedding an amazing and an experience you’ll remember forever?
Joya and Emre’s Wedding
Joya and Emre’s Wedding was made by David Robin Films. Flawless was made by Pacific Pictures. Both show amazing creativity and technique in filmmaking. In addition the couples involved showed amazing moxie and spunk to step outside the box so to speak in creating a remembrance of their special day. I think this shows a quality in them that will serve them quite well in the years to come. And what fun it must have been!

In my continued conquest of the Seattle Indie film scene i had the distinct pleasure to work as a sound technician on the presentation reel for the film “Cut the Rot”. My good friend and fellow thespian Jon Peck is DOP on this project. Although the call was 7 to 12 PM we ended up shooting until 5AM. Oh well, everything for art! I’m back in school also. Taking some courses at Bellevue College in order to round out my film education. Two of the courses I am really excited about are Business of Film and Video and Digital Cinema. More on that later. BC has a number of excellent film classes taught by professionals with long careers. Not as intense as the film and video program at Seattle Central but something can be said for learning from those who have been there. By that I mean no disrespect to the instructors at SC. They are awesome too but in a much different way. Alright, it’s 6, time for bed.
So my film Solving the Quantum Riddle: Interrupted premiered at the Local Sightings Film Festival last night. I had a great talk with Adem from NWFF & the DP from Eyes in the Dark about the future of Seattle Alt cinema. Later the discussion moved towards the DSLR & the big screen. I expressed the belief that the greatest impact of the DLSR on indie movies is yet to come. Perhaps 5 years of dominance for these handy little cameras until something more revolutionary, (& at the1 to 5 thousand dollar price point) comes along. For the ultra low budget filmmaker the HDSLR may just be the go to camera for a long long time. The reason being lenses, image quality & cost. Look for small increases in quality with such things as low noise in extremely low light, XLR inputs & perhaps effective auto focus while operating in film mode. Perhaps raw & 4K video will occur sometime soon, (within the next 5 years), as well. The camera companies save a lot of money in development cost when the same camera can be marketed to professional photographers/videographers & serious amateurs.
Going to my first audition since 1996 tonight. I’ve got a nice piece from Glen Garry Glen Ross & Henry V to hit them with. It is for a paying gig in a neo film noir short. Wish me luck!
