上海灘’2010

Our hero, David, dressed for the occasion, arrives to fetch his beautiful maiden, Olivia. Enjoy the gate crash, Hong Kong style.

The joyous and fun atmosphere was infectious and we really had to try very hard not to laugh. During the dinner banquet, the guests were treated to Lighthouse Studio’s unique 3D montage. Still images from the past were animated, bringing back nostalgic memories. It was a pleasure filming you guys. All the best!

Happy New Year to one and all! It had been a really busy season for us … and we apologize for not being able to share as much as our time permits, juggling editing, meeting and filming work and the occasional blogging as well. We are blessed to be able to share in the joy of the wedding celebrations of Ian & Wendy 3,000 km away from here on  3-January-2010. As much as Ian looks ethnically Chinese, he was really born and raised in India. Wendy on the other hand is a true blue Singaporean and they themselves met each other thousands of miles away from their own hometown in Australia. We were given the task to retell their story using a combination of cartoon integrated with photos. Here’s a sneak into some of the production still pics, will be sharing the video with you in a while.

Wedding Cartoon Montage of Eddie & Mandy

We gave you guys a sneak preview sometime ago on one of the new types of montage we are attempting. Thanks to Eddie & Mandy, who entrusted us with the big job of re-creating their love story through a short cartoon snippet. Its one of our first attempts at something like that, I hope it did turn out to be a watchable piece of work.

Thanks especially to Eddie and Mandy who gave us very encouraging words:

“Thank you for cracking your head burning midnight oil just to make sure the montage is a great piece of work! As much as we overwhelmed you with so much details, your professional eyes can still spot the highlights and piece them together in a beautiful flow! We know not how to thank you enough… THANKS! :-D”

If you like what you see and would like to work with us to develop the next cartoon montage, we will be glad to help you eternalize your story to be told to your friends, relatives and even your kids in the future! Thank you once again to Eddie & Mandy for being patient and forbearing with us on the tight deadline and giving us all trust to deliver this piece for you.

Cartoon Montage of Guixiang & Gloria

This is a long overdue post. Had been quite a busy season, where we try our very best to deliver as many videos as we possibly can, before CNY so that during the season of family gathering, our couples may share memories of their special day with their loved ones.

Cartoon Cariature of Guixiang & Gloria

Back to the story of the montage for Guixiang & Gloria; our inspiration for new types of montage or for new ways to present our work come from many places. But most of the time, its our couples who challenge us to think out of the box, to do something different and special for them. We were really motivated by Guixiang and Gloria when they presented us with this idea of theirs. The groom had taken much effort to type out their love story … the many tactics he used, and how he finally persevered to win Gloria’s heart with 4 important items. Special mention must also go to a good friend of Guixiang and Gloria; Winnie did a great job drawing out the cute tooney characters in preparation for the montage; we decided to add  some colors to the characters to bring out the cheery and happy mood of their love story.
