Ok, I might be late posting this, i'm sure most of you have already watched this. I just wanted to make sure that everyone got a chance to see this really amazing Video for a Wedding trailer. Shot by Roberto Balasko, this is not your teary eyed, slow jam, heart-felt wedding video. This one pumps out sounds and scenes more like an action thriller. According to the details there are (2) Two Canon 5D Mark II's, a Canon 7D, and EX1. Other equipment name drops include, Glidetrack, Mini Crane, Shoulder Mount, & Follow Focus. Great job on this one I Really really liked this. Follow his link to find more information, Use the icons below to Tweet, FB, and Digg.
I formerly met Waylon through the Vimeo community from a friend of a friend. Waylon was already shooting video on a consumer camcorder so he had just a bit of editing practice. After introducing him to some of the professional videos online from seasoned DSLR cinematographers I had been following, he decided to take the plunge into DSLR videography. Jumping into the Canon 7D for it's ability to provide quality photos and videos, it wasn't very long before he started producing some awesome videos like the one above.
The silly bride dancing around is my cousin, and she invited to bring some gear along to help capture some of those special moments, but was just hanging back as the backup photographer / videographer. Waylon joined me in this event to practice some of his composition, slider technique, and Steadicam / Glidecam work. I have to say, the guy is good and getting better. These are just short clips of some Behind The Scenes footage Waylon put together for me. You can see me running around with my Radio Poppers and Wifey is holding the flashes. You can check out more of Waylon's projects on his Vimeo, drop him a line and give him some props.

First, I just want to apologize to all the readers about the lack of content on this website lately. Secondly, I just wanted to rub it in everyone's face that i'm in Hawaii enjoying the sunshine and tropical weather! Just kidding (partially), but really i've been a bit busy closing a deal in Maui and entertaining some guests. Yeah that's me with the ol' ball and chain...let's hope i'm still able to afford my camera hobbies. Anyways, i'm still on vacation giving everyone an update, but i'll be back to DIY'ing next week with some new things i've come to think about while out in Maui.
