We are Featured on Her World Brides June 2009!

Super excited! Her World Brides decided to feature us in their June issue. Was apprehensive when they told us they might choose a few of the ones they interview to be featured. Well, for those who have been following our blog for sometime, you would have already known some of the things we are pretty well-known for, like Live View Gatecrashing and 3D montage to share with more people. 

Thanks also to the couple who was featured in the magazine for allowing us to share some of their special moments, and thanks to Maisie for doing such a great job on the photography.

The Behind the Scenes of Thomas & Peixian

this is a behind the scenes story on what happened on the wedding day of Thomas & Peixian. Something quite unimaginable happened, but thankfully for all the right people, and the right help, everything went fine. I think until now, the Bride Peixian might not really know what happened. So this post is to let her and all those around on that day know what happened and assure that everything was fine.

09:15 -> set off from the bride’s house on route to the couple’s new house. Excited to shoot my newly learnt technique of a low car shot.

09:20> Got the brother’s car to maneourvre to the right of the brial car as we got on KJE. Did a normal car shot at the window of the couple, and then I started to lean myself out of the window to attempt a daring stunt.

09:22> I heard a sound similar to glass breaking and i saw in front of me what happened. First feeling should be to feel panic, but I cleared my head to think how to solve things immediately. Requested the driver to stop by the road shoulder, and I went back to retrieve what i need to.

09:25> Made a few calls for reinforcement as I ran back to the car after collecting the item. One of them to my partner Xiaodong to standby to collect something from me, another to Dan of Camwerkz.

09:27> As I got back into the car, all those present were asking me what happened. I tried to re-assure all that everything is fine and under control.

09:40> Got to Shunfu, and saw the whole bridal entourage waiting for us. Quickly also saw my partner, and passed the thing to him, and told him some quick items to do.

10:00> Filming of tea ceremony as usual at the couple’s place.

11:20> got a SMS from Xiaodong that he just reached Dan’s place at Camwerkz. I was praying deeply for a good outcome, keeping in mind there is an express highlights to pull off. Its even a ROM-Express.

12:00> got a call from Xiaodong that everything was fine and back to normal, he’s rushing back to start on the edit, already a few hours behind our planned time.

17:00> arrived at the hotel to film the solemnization.

20:30> the express highlights was shown on the big screen, no one else realised the amount of pressure and panic we felt throughout the day, except for maybe Joy, the bridesmaid on the same car and the driver of the car (sorry that I forgot his name). Joy was obviously terrified while I tried to re-assure all of them that everything was under control and not to mention anything more to the groom and bride and that I will get everything settled.

Phew! Thanks to the blessed couple that everything went well, and also to our nerves or rather not getting out of nerves, and the support of the other team players of Lighthousestudio and our friends. I can’t imagine if this thing happened to a one-man operation without backup and other resources on-hand. My undying gratitude goes out to Mr. Dan Lim from Camwerkz who never hesitated to render his help that day. Thanks to our chief editor Xiaodong too for rushing out the edit, despite the added pressure of time as we got delayed by the unexpected turn of events. But we never missed any footage in the end, and I could concentrate on the filming of the tea ceremony and the subsequent events and document the wedding of Thomas & Peixian in its entirety. Its down to the teamwork of every single person at Lighthousestudio that helped us pull off an unexpected and challenging task on hand.

Thanks to my brilliant team and Dan once again for pulling it off together. I also remember that Peixian kept asking me what really fell out of the car and what actually happened. So this story clearly explains what happened. Whenever I see the video of Wedding Video of Thomas & Peixian , I will always remember this incident, with a sweet happy ending.
