| Mock Wedding Xtreme - LIVE! to be Presented at WEVA 2012
May 24, 2012
Sarasota, FL - The explosion in camera technology and accessories for filming weddings has shooters asking, "So how can we compare and learn new camera creativity that sets us apart from the competition, along with new audio techniques, lighting, even live-streaming techniques? And see the shots being done by top shooters simultaneously, in an actual wedding day setup?"
It happens this summer at Mock Wedding Xtreme – LIVE! an interactive presentation set for WEVA 2012, said John Zale, WEVA’s Director of Educational Development.
From the ballroom of the famed Hilton Universal/CityWalk, Mock Wedding Xtreme – LIVE! will feature actual pre-ceremony staging, wedding altar, sanctuary, and reception staging, Zale said, "plus live bridal models and stop-action events to reveal multiple ceremony and reception camera techniques and on-location solutions. This is where you can see and compare techniques as they are being performed by a number of top shooters nationally and internationally, each of whom have their own unique style. Be there, and be inspired!"
Developed by WEVA, Mock Wedding Xtreme – LIVE! is a full evening presentation Tuesday, August 14 that will reveal new techniques, new gear, and new camerawork using:
* Moving Cameras
* Wireless Cameras
* DSLR/Video Cameras (Hybrid Techniques)
* Hand-Held, Tripod & Monopod-mounted Cameras
* Camera Crane & Jib Techniques
* Ceremony & Reception Audio Techniques
* Microphone Differences and Distinctions
* LIVE-Streaming Techniques
* Video Capture Options
* Lighting Options
* Solutions Using On-Location Accessories
"There have been mock wedding presentations in the past, including our own at WEVA 2007," said Zale. "But nothing on a scale of this size that includes pre-ceremony, LIVE-Streaming, today’s new gear, and multiple shooters explaining their own unique set-ups and on-site techniques as they are actually performing them. For anyone shooting weddings and receptions, it’s going to answer a ton of questions and transform your creativity. It will inspire you with new ways of thinking about 'The Story' elements and their emotional impact. And, new ways to increase your bottom-line success."
