The Film

Posted by on Nov 24, 2009 in high definition, personal, whatnot | 30 Comments

date: november 21, 2009//church: st. james the great//reception: fernbrook gardens//film documentation: jason magbanua//high definition documentation: phoeben teocson videography//photography: mangored//photography: kix tavora//photography: paul vincent//styling: teddy manuel//hmu: angie cruz & ogie rayel//bridal couture: cecilio abad//groom’s suit: randy ortiz

when a wedding videographer gets married, expectations, i believe, is higher than the ordinary and the pressure to produce a wedding video is almost insurmountable. all that, i didn’t want.

at first i toyed with the idea of making one. soon, when people around me started asking who’s gonna edit the onsite video on my wedding day, i joked and said i would. i was only kidding.

i knew that if i had one, it should be different…special…extraordinary…if i had one, i wanted something that’s never been done before.

i wanted one.

less than two weeks before our big day, i started documenting everything. less than a week before our big day, i started writing the script and the timeline. inspired by edward norton’s monologue in the hollywood film 25th Hour and (seriously) jay manalo’s narration in aubrey miles highest grossing film Prosti plus television blockbuster Lost’s flashback and flashforward style of story telling, i came up with a short-film-like concept…and somehow, the buzzing sound of the projector playing in the background made perfect sense for an onsite song. =)

    Bim at Gen kayo ay isa sa aming malapit na kaibigan. Bagamat hindi pa nasusubukan ang ating samahan ng isang matinding pagsubok, alam ko at ng aking asawang si Ayvih na ito ay di basta basta mabubuwag. Sa inyong paglalakbay bilang mag-asawa, asahan nyo na kami ay narito para sa inyo anumang oras na kailangan nyo ng kaibigan.

    Kami ng aking asawa ay nagpapasalamat na kami ay naging bahagi ng inyong pagiisang dibdib.

    Congratulations Bim at Gen!!
