Valerie & Eric’s Wedding | Same Day Edit | MOLAA Long Beach

Monday, September 29th, 2008

I first met Eric when we were working on the Black Eyed Peas music video for their last single “Bebot”. We both did wedding videos and we later got the chance to work together again on a video presentation for Vicky & Greg (Valerie’s sister and brother-in-law). When Lori and Eric asked me to shoot their wedding, I was deeply honored because Eric is a talented editor/producer himself (he just won an Emmy with his team over at NBC)!

There’s usually a moment at every wedding that we shoot, when I’m reminded why I love weddings. At Lori & Eric’s wedding, it came during the ceremony as Eric got down on one knee, took a pitcher of water and poured it over his bride’s feet. It’s a reenactment of when Christ humbled himself to wash the feet of his disciples and it’s a picture of the love for His bride, the church. It’s something I’ve never seen before at a wedding and I thought it was really awesome to witness and capture on video. It’s seen for a brief instant in their Same Day Edit, but I wanted to explain its meaning to those of you who are watching. This was certainly a blessed event and we were so glad to be a part of it.

Melissa & Dave - Tustin Ranch Golf Club

Friday, September 26th, 2008

A physical therapist has the hots for an intern. They date. They fall in love. But the cool part of the story is that they found out that they lived within a few miles of each other their whole lives, their fathers knew each other and worked for the same company for 30 years… but they never met until they worked together at the hospital! Sounds like the latest episode of “Grey’s Anatomy”, right? Actually, it’s the true love story of Melissa and Dave! I, for one, believe in destiny… and these two are proof. Here are highlights from their wedding day.

Red 5 Studios & David Robin Films Collaborate for “Entourage”

Thursday, September 18th, 2008

A few years back, David Robin shot our friend’s wedding. I remember checking out his website back then and saw that he was doing concept videos for weddings and events. I thought to myself “how cool is that!” But I never thought I’d be doing the same thing many years later. Fast forward to earlier this year… I get an e-mail from David asking me if he’d like to collaborate on a project if ever an opportunity would pop up. I replied with an enthusiastic “Absolutely!” Well folks, that opportunity came this last weekend.

You’ve probably seen the teaser photos below and were thinking “What in the world are you guys doing in Paris’ bedroom with video cameras… and a kid”! Well, the concept video is a spoof of the HBO series “Entourage” but in our version, the star is a 12-year old boy.  And like the show, it would have cameos by celebrities playing themselves. For one scene, we got to work with Hollywood legend James Caan a.k.a. Sonny Corleone of “The Godfather”. That was very cool… and it was the very first shot of the production!

On the second day of the shoot, we went to the home of the lovely Ms. Paris (who was an absolute sweetheart and a great host… seriously, I’m a fan now). I even got to set up my PS3 and Rock Band in her living room. As Paris would say… that’s hot!!! Anyway, we’re still in production and should be wrapping up soon. Working with David has been the best since we both share the same passion for movies and movie-making. We also put together a great team to really make this one as cool as the real show. Stay tuned!

UPDATE!

Here’s a link to the video!

The New Red 5 Studios Demo DVD is here… and it ROCKS!

Monday, September 8th, 2008

Whoohoo! I finally took the time to put together a new demo DVD and it’s called “Greatest Hits: Volume IV”!!! It features a ton of new videos including wedding clips, Same Day Edits, and those crazy Concept Videos and Movie Trailer spoofs. R5S:GH4 even has an “easter egg” (you know, those hidden features on some of your movie DVDs. What? You’ve never found one?). If you want one of these bad boys, drop me an e-mail and I’ll send one to you. Or if I run out of stamps, I’ll throw one on your doorstep if I’m driving by your neighborhood (just kidding). If you’re a bride-to-be or a vendor, let me know, and I’ll send it along with our latest pricing brochure.
