Save the Date Video

So my fiancee and I are getting married next year, as fiances are wont to do, so we made this video as our save the date.  It was shot on the Canon 60D, tracked with Mocha, composited in After Effects.  Approximately 40 man-hours to complete. 

Please watch at highest possible resolution.

Congratulations! Video looks really good. Wife is now asking why I couldn't have done something like that for us. So thanks for that. Does Paris have a special significance for you since that's where you're choosing to get married?
Some people have a fear of snakes. That was a somewhat rational fear. And you could do something about it at least. Stay away from long grass and nature documentaries. Easy. Others have a fear of heights. That was manageable too. Avoid tall ladders. But how do you cope when your fear is something you can’t avoid? That you have no hope of staying away from? Being afraid of the sky, where are you going to go?

Haha, sorry about that.

Paris is her favorite city. She traveled there twice as a student, and has talked about living there for a year or two at some point down the line. I've never been, but I love Europe, so I'm really looking forward to it. We're renting a vacation apartment right across the Seine from Notre Dame.

Swanky!

Don't forget to go to the Shakespeare & Co. Bookshop in that area, which is where the first scene of Before Sunset takes place. Actually, it's just fun to generally pretend that you've fallen into that movie.

Apparently the bookstore is also featured in Midnight in Paris, but I haven't seen that.

I don't want to go and make any sort of social faux pas by saying who's invited and who isn't.  Suffice to say, if anyone here is going to be in Paris between May 19th and 24th of next year, let me know, and I'll meet up and buy them a drink.  Brush up on your French in the meantime.  Unless you're one of the people here who already speaks fluent French, in which case, keep up the good work.
