Today I’m bringing you a different type of educational video that I’ve never done before. In this video I breakdown and analyze James and Maggie’s beautiful Pippin Hill wedding film from last month. Make sure to check out the full highlight film before watching this breakdown!
I got the idea to do this type of video from Craig Adams over at Wedding Film School. Recently I’ve been watching a lot of his post commentaries from his wedding films and found them extremely helpful for me. It’s always interesting to hear someone else’s perspective and thought process they go through while editing. So I decided to make a video of my own, which hopefully will be beneficial to some of you out there! 
In addition to the thought process behind the actual editing itself,  I cover a wide variety of topics including: the way we organize Premiere Pro projects, color grading, our process for covering 1st looks, matching different cameras, ceremony coverage and a bunch more! 
I really enjoyed the process of making this video. Breaking down the film was actually a very helpful and educational process for me. I found that I learned a lot about my own editing style while doing it! Everything you see here is completely unscripted and one continuous take. It is rather lengthy, but there are a ton of little gems of information scattered throughout the video! I’d love to hear feedback on this video! If you found it helpful, and if you’d like to see more in the future! Feel free to leave a comment below and make sure to subscribe to us on YouTube!

Here are some screen grabs from different sections of the video:
