Patrick Moreau, Toronto Vendor: Cinematographer Website: Still Motion About Me: For far too long, wedding videography has been seen as a medium with debatable value and little artistic merit. I think a wedding film should be fun, quirky, romantic, and really reflect two people and their coming together. It should grab you in the first few seconds, shake you throughout, and leave you with a lingering impression. I am 1/3 of the cinematography team at StillMotion, along with Michael and Konrad. With a background in psychology and no formal training in film + video, I've been completely self taught and look to use my background to add more meaning to our films and the experience of creating them. I hope our art can inspire you like our brides inspire us.
About patrick

For Quyen and Steve’s wedding, we got the opportunity to shoot with Ed Pingol from the San Jose, CA area. When he and his team showed up in the morning, they were pumped to be a part of a Stillmotion same-day edit. When I told them that Quyen and Steve opted for a love story instead of an SDE, their enthusiasm quickly faded. If you know Ed at all, that certainly means a lot. With that, the idea was born that maybe, just maybe, we could try and swing a SDE at some point in the day. Add to that, Quyen and Steve’s love story had such a strong ending, it was just calling for a SDE to complete it.

When the reception rolled around the possibility of not doing an SDE became smaller and smaller. So we devised the plan, set to work, and had the piece ready by the time the speeches were done. The coolest thing about this was that nobody except for the two of us knew what was going on. The love story aired and we received a rather huge applause with Quyen and Steve undoubtedly thinking that everything was over. Then it hit the screen to quite the reaction, one that surely made all the craziness worth while. :grin:

With that, here is the SDE that was born and finished at the reception. Thanks to Casey W. from mindcastle for his awesomeness in pulling this together.
