I just saw an amazing wedding video done by a group of photographers/videogra​phers from Toronto. INCREDIBLE!

In fact, Canon was so impressed they used it in their Rebel XTI commercials here in Canada.

being the Wedding videographer that I am for the last 9 years.. I honestly have to say that video is truely amazing...

I've submitted video's into the WEVA int. Awards and HPVA (Houston Professional Videographers Association)myself.. and have created, in my opinion was wonderfull things.. but this tops all

That wedding video was a full production.. with Booms, prolly 3 or 4 camera operators... with sound producers on each camera. The Post Production editing, INHO, is Academy award winning... and I mean that.

there are some really creative minds out there and a lot of productions companies can produce works like this... finding the client that'll spend 20-30 THOUSAND dollars on a wedding MOVIE... not video is that lost golden treasure.

Brilliant work

Very impressed. Did look like they had at least 3 camera peoples. I wonder what all equipment was used, everything was so fluid and smooth.

Cameras: up to eight in total.

- 4 Canon XH-A1s; our general purpose main camera. Excellent low-light ability, power and flexibility of custom presets, intuitive control layout, option of 30F/24F.

- 3 Canon HV-20s; this cam is the little engine that could. Excellent performance when used in adequate lighting conditions, good low light performance for a single chip CMOS camera, and a nice 24P option. This camera also serves as our importing ‘deck’.

- Canon XL-H1; the main steadicam cam. In addition to all the XH-A1 perks, this camera allows for inter-changable lenses, is suitable out-of-the-box for 35mm adapter usage due to it’s built in LCD flip ability, and it’s weight makes it ideal for mating with our Steadicam Flyer.

For bright sunlight, we have several Petrol LCD sunshades that work great this type of situation.

Stabilizers: We use a Steadicam Flyer for the XL-H1, 2 Steadicam Merlins for the HV-20s & XH-A1s, and 3 glidecam 2000’s for the XH-A1s. For more static shooting, we use 2 spiderbrace units as well as 5 Manfrotto tripods mounted to 503 heads. For specialty and premium shoots, we sometimes bring out the 12′ Kessler crane as well as the new Cinevate Dolly. We will be adding a Steadicam Pilot to mate to our XH-A1s shortly.

35 mm Imaging: We use 5 Cinevate Brevis35 adapters+flip modules to allow us to achieve the very shallow depth of field for our detail shots, while also allowing us to achieve the grand feel in our wide master shots. Isn’t it nice to be able to borrow a large variety of DSLR lenses from our photo department? ;)

Video Lenses: We use the Canon 3.4-20mm XL wide-angle lens for our XL-H1, 16×9 Inc 0.7 wide-angle lens and the Red Eye 0.6 wide-angle lens adapters for our XH-A1s.

Audio: We use 4 Sennheiser G2 wireless setups for our audio capture.

Editing Hardware & Software: We use up to date Mac Pro’s for all our editing and post work. For our same day edits we use 2 top-of-the-line Macbook Pro laptops.

I am an independent filmmaker and a Steadicam operator. I use the Flyer for my Panasonic AG-HVX200 and a Merlin for my HV20. I also use the Brevis35 adapter, but with Canon FD mount prime lenses. I also have Sennheizer microphones on long booms that connect to a Mackie board which goes right back into the camera. The HVX is heavy off the Steadicam or tripod because I have it attached to a large mattebox and rails system that also supports Anton Bauer battery packs and an 11" LCD field monitor.

The HV20 is the secondary, second unit or "stunt cam", depending on what I need it for. I've attached it to the exterior of cars for chase scenes, driven burning model cars into it (well, the lexan in front of it), and other vicious things. I use Final Cut Studio 2 for post and the footage integrates well with the HVX's.

The toughest aspect of using the Flyer is directing when you're in the vest. I like to use my hands when I direct so it's tough to do so when one hand is holding onto the Flyer's arm so it won't accidentally wack someone when I'm moving around between takes.

There is currently no one where I live that would pay for my services to do a wedding movie of that nature. Which is fine, cuz I don't care to shoot weddings, anyway. :-D

This is not a wedding video....this is full on production lol. They had movable spotlights and all sorts of stuff.

I wonder if they had permission to use the song from the Pearl Harbor movie....
