Hi Kids –
I actually got the idea from the Wolf family, who has done many of these. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aMX0PjmhfJw)
My cruise mates (there were 19 of us all total) all wanted me to do this and I had a killer script written but when it came time to do it just about everyone gave me a hard time about where, when & what so I had to improvise and just get what I could. Now that it’s all said and done, everyone is bemoaning how uncooperative they were and while they love it, they now realize how much better it could have been. Oh well… maybe if I ever do a family cruise again they’ll be a little more cooperative.
As for some of the comments, I was able to persuade Royal Caribbean to let me use their video as a video partner – I have access to a lot of good footage, so the opening aerial was courtesy of their helicopter shots.
The font was one of Digital Juice’s fonts (Splish Splash) and took me about 10 minutes to create the graphic.
I get seasick as well but Bonine does the trick (I used to use transdermal scopalamine which works great but cannot use any more due to other meds I take) – Ginger root also does wonders. This was cruise #19 for me and I have only had problems on one of them – The key is to keep from getting sick in the first place.
One of the gods of wedding video – Glen Elliot – has done stuff like this in the past – See if you can find his Reservoir Dogs video of the bridal party – It’s a hoot! But I have not seen a lip-sync wedding piece – If you do one Earl, I’d love to see it!
