Henri & Diana’s Pre-wedding Love Story :: Paris

We were so worried before departing to Paris for many reasons. Our equipment weighted almost 80KG and baggage allowance is only limited to 60KG for 2 pax. We spent weeks of discussion on how to bring the heavy equipment over to Paris and finally, we made it. Kenn is kind enough to help us to carry another 20KG.

The Challenges

The film comprises of 2 main scenes. Casual and Wedding gown and suit. it looks pretty in sequence in the film but actually it was shot randomly due to the location we visited. For example, the transition of casual wear to formal wedding dress shot, we shot the wedding gown scene first. Then we returned to hotel and changed the casual wear. we returned to the park and continued the casual scene. Thus, the planning was crucial. We can’t afford to miss any of the scenes in order to combine all of them into smooth storyline.

The aviation authority in Paris is one of our concern for Helicam. I didn’t put much hope on aerial shot in Paris as the local government keep their eyes strictly on those popular landmarks at all time. We were warned by the local polices few times. Luckily, Henri and Diana were so sporting although we have many NGs in between. They will never give up and keep trying until we manage to capture our desired shots. Polices are everywhere at Eiffel tower. We had to be very quick to take off the helicam. The distance between helicam’s take off point and Diana’s place is about 200m away. There was no line-of-sight to Diana and I couldn’t give any signal to her. The only solution is to use walkie talkie. Thanks to the person who invented the walkie talkie! 4 of us were communicating via walkie especially the helicam at Eiffel Tower shot. When the Heli was hovering in the sky, I paged Kenn to give signal to Diana. While Diana was walking on the corridor, Pauline started shooting from far using long range lens at the same time. Big thank to Diana and Henri, and most importantly, The Undivided Team.

JJ & Yee Peng’s Wedding SDE

The Helicam chase scene on the bridge was assisted by the local traffic police. Without the support from all the drivers, the crew and police, the mission will not be successful. Before leaving the hotel, I still remember JJ walked towards me and said “Jessen, you have only 1 attempt to take the shot” This could be my toughest flying experience as the challenges are not only the control of the drone but the object targeting. When the drone was in the sky, i had difficulty to local the bridal car. Below is the screenshot taken from the helicam before it took off.

Qasim & Fiona’s Wedding SDE \\ Koh Samui

Qasim & Fiona’s Wedding SDE | Koh Samui from JXS Wedding Cinema on Vimeo.

It was a raining day in Koh Samui but fortunately the rain stopped right before the wedding ceremony of Qasim and Fiona. The couple had their wedding ceremony done in the middle of the pool which is the only one resort doing this in the entire island.

There is a private pool for every single villa. We travel from villa to another by golf buggy. It was fun to ride around, going up hill and down hill but definitely not in the wet weather. It was raining on the Mehndi night but the rain couldn’t stop everybody from enjoying the night. We operated our steadicam in the rain still. We flew our Helicam in the rain as well. Qasim & Fiona, we just wanted to let you know what a great day we had with you while we were in Koh Samui.

Jonathan & Rebecca’s Wedding SDE

This could be the toughest assignment for the team. The wedding ceremony is held at Penang Hill Rajawali bungalow and the wedding reception is held at Rasa Sayang Resort, Penang.

The distance between these locations is about 1 hour drive. The challenges, of course the SDE. We started the SDE process in the car while heading for the resort. That 1 hour in the car was really crucial for us. Thanks for Pauline for being a driver of the day. Next challenge is the ceremony at Penang Hill. All of us including the bulky equipments were transported from base to hill top by 4×4 truck. It took us about 15 minutes to arrive at the entrance of the Rajawali Bungalow. There is short distance from the entrance to the ceremony venue but no other transport will be arranged for this short journey as there is no path at all. The crew had to carry the equipment one by one to the destination but we love the cold air up there and most importantly the scenary is absolutely beautiful.
