The "Complete Storytelling" Production
This is more than a simple documentation of the event. An extra day is dedicated to the shooting of this short film. For Nam and Joe's occasion, the day before the event was filmed for a behind-the-scene perspective of how their wedding was realized. We were also commissioned to film an impromptu skit which was played at the wedding ceremony and can be seen here at the end of the video. Almost all of the spoken words that we had recorded are transcribed and organized into a storyline. The edit is a refined abstraction of dialogue, music selections, and "cinematic" imagery. I have included this project's script below in order to illustrate how we have used dialogue to drive the plot.
The script will also provide a client with a way to easily review the direction that we have taken during our editing process. We insist on a certain amount of creative control but also recognize that we are trying to properly reflect the personality of the main characters. Nam and Joe are a fun-loving, rabble-rousing, and often sarcastic couple. We approached this work with a lot of planning and an open communication throughout the entire process.
