Here is the 2006 showreel that Julie and I commissioned to help us convert prospects into becoming clients. It is all made up from still photographs. The animation was created painstakenly by hand. This is meant to be mute – see below for the reason.
Here is the showreel that I commissioned using Macromedia Director way back in 2006. It shows pictures that Julie, my wife and I shot at weddings from 2001 – 2005. We included it in our brochure at the time to help convert prospects into clients. The original version was delivered on CD and contained paid for licensed production music. I’ve kept this web version mute to avoid copyright infringement. All the pictures and content belong to Lovegrove Weddings. Please enjoy this HD video. I hope you get plenty of ideas and inspiration from it.
The original production was published on CD as a stand alone ‘projector’ file for either PC or Mac. We delivered the CDs in a purpose made pouch in the back of our wedding photography brochure. There was licenced production music embedded within the project. However the licence we bought for about £250 only covers the original run of CDs hence this web published version being mute. The project was created by Peter G Rogers FBIPP using Macromedia Director software.
Back in 2006 our competitors just had standard slideshows with one picture fading into another. This project lifted us above them all and our clients absolutely loved it. Some of our prospective brides gave the CD to their fiences to play in their laptops and then they asked them for approval to book us. The brides knew they wanted us and this helped them to ‘sell us’ to their men. This is the reason for the boys having fun section near the start.
All the photographs in this set are from our weddings shot between 2001 and 2006. This video lasts for just under 23 minutes. You can download this video in HD and it will run perfectly on an iPad, iPad 2 or iPhone 4.
