First Dance Videos!

We love first dances. For the shoot, my steadicam-certified DOP, Kwoi goes in handheld and moves along with the action, capturing the intimacy and the spirit of the action in a single, fluid shot. It's like he is dancing along with the couple so you really feel the grace and movement of the dance. Most importantly, he gets the facial expressions and smiles of the couple in close-up, something a standard tripod shot just isn't going to get in this situation.

For the edit, I mix in the live natural sound (so you can hear the crowd going "woooh!" and "aahh!"), to preserve the excitement and the joy of the moment, with the soundtrack music from CD for that extra bit of "oompf."
