Today Michael LaFrance tweeted that I check out his “amazing” wedding film trailer. Honestly, my first thought was this is just a form of Twitter spam (which normally bugs me). And I wasn’t too crazy about the lack of humility. But, I thought, what the heck. I’ll check it out. I’ll give this guy 30 seconds. If this thing doesn’t grab me in 30 seconds I’m going back to watching “Standard Operating Procedure” and I’ll probably block his tweets from now on. Well, congrats Michael. You grabbed me.
In a sea of “soft and pretty,” every so romantic, eclectic folksy soundtrack driven wedding trailers, this film feels more like a Tim Burton movie. It was truly the first HD-DSLR wedding trailer I’ve seen in months (probably a year) that didn’t look like every other HD DSLR wedding film I’ve seen.
This film is definitely NOT for everyone. Heck, I bet it’s not for MOST brides. BUT, the brides who do want something like this, I hazard to guess will pay good money for it since I bet you can’t find many wedding filmmakers who do stuff like this. (I hope you’re charging wel Mike). Well done.
What are YOU doing to set your work apart from the pack? Are you willing to take chances, go against the grain? If you do, and you have something you really think stands out, then feel free to spam me. 🙂
Check out Michael’s trailer below. [Warning: the “f-bomb” is dropped and the middle finger is used. Like I said, this ain’t for everyone.]
