“CITY OF LAKES” The Feature

What happens to a dream when it becomes reality?Does it still exist somewhere, in some ethereal place, waiting to come to fruition again?Could a fictional narrative capture an emotional state, and the true meaning behind a real, live event with more drama and conviction than a traditional documentary?These were just some of the questions that arose when I took on the “CITY OF LAKES” project late last year. First, it would become an unprecedented attempt to combine a fully scripted, produced film with Melissa & Samir’s real, live wedding, with the intention of creating one, seamless film. Second, the live wedding and production would be shot entirely on-location in Udaipur, India over a period of nine days. Third, our skeleton crew would consist solely of live event filmmakers from across North America, who would shoot the live wedding events and production simultaneously & exclusively on DSLRs, the Canon 5D MarkII and Canon 7D.

    I think this is a great post because of the detailed explanation at the beginning. I think this should become a staple of posts on this site. An explanation of the shot should be included with each movie.

      Thanks for the input Juan. I think you’re absolutely right. In the future we will strive to include better description with each post. Thanks for the advice — please keep it coming!
