Like with many things in my life, I have been procrastinating with starting this series of blog posts.What series? The series where we talk about my wedding. Gosh! That sounds strange to write! Mostly because even though I am happy to share details of the wedding-there are a few things I wonder about like-how much do I want to share? How much is over sharing? How do I decide what to write about and what not to write about? Uff! Its all too complicated. So, in keeping up with tradition and my typical behaviour- I am going to start a*% backwards and then fill in the gaps as we go. Maybe you guys can help make a list for me of what to discuss and what not to discuss. SO much easier when someone tells you what to do, right? Not really but you get what I mean!
So to start this series of with a real BANG, I am showing you the trailer of our wedding video. I don’t know if it’s right to flip out over your own video so much,but in the enthusiasm of the videographer who made this video-I can say it is pretty fricking AWESOME!Which also brings me to the videographer? Who is he?Who are they? He/They (because sometimes he works on his own and sometimes he doesn’t) is one of my oldest friends who has always been really creative but only picked up a camera a couple of years ago. He started off with photography but decided it wasn’t his thing even though he was really good at it. He decided he LOVES shooting videos and loves editing them even more. And he is good. I’m not just saying it because he is such a good friend but because quite simply-he is brilliant (I can see his head swelling up already feeling all cool and all). His name is Rahul Datta but he is happier being called a Starving Artist. Go to his facebook page here- Starving Artist Videos and make sure you ‘like’ his page. At the moment, he is busy being the official videographer for Kings XI (the cricket team just in case you didn’t know that) and I am trying to convince him this season he needs to do more wedding videos. Don’t you agree? Other people who helped in shooting the video were Maya Singh and Vir Nakai. I am just glad my 5D Mkii came back intact after the mad wedding party!
Side note- I have posted many a time my love for The Wedding Filmer’s work here and if it weren’t for Starving Artist Videos– I’d have opted them for sure. Oh, the challenges of being surrounded by so many amazingly talented people!
Now, to the video-
Shot and Edited by : Starving Artist Videos
Wasn’t that just awesome? I have watched the video so many times, its ridiculous. Each time I discover something new, something different. I can’t wait for the longer version (are you listening, Rahul?).Some other people you might spot and recognise in the video are – Vir, Maya, April, Carmen, Ingo, Steffen and of course Rahul.
Now, that we have kicked off this series, what should the next post be about?
