this video came about in the last two days before the wedding. it felt like art center week 13 (finals week) working at myungs and pulling near all nighters. stacy was giving me new photos to add to the slideshow at 12:30 am the night before her wedding. we were also swapping out music then too to fit their personalities.
i did the photo editing and sequencing. myung contributed with the opening animation and chapter titles. unfortunately he probably spent about 6+ hours on the morning of his wedding trying to get the rendering right. of course we had major difficulties. he was even rendering the video in the car ride up to the ceremony. (he later said that he felt like he was going to throw up during the car ride over.)
fellow groomsman wes helped out with troubleshooting the rendering of the video in after effects and during the wedding whenever we could we ran up to the groomsmen's room to check on the video and again rerender it. we had 2 laptops and an external hard drive set up trying to get it done right. finally wes figured out a successful version to output, which he appropriately called - "the hail mary render."
it felt great to deliver the video for the wedding. one friend told us that it was probably the best wedding video he's ever seen.
after the wedding, i made a few more tweaks fixing some bugs and reediting the music. enjoy.
