The Wedding

Laura Mock as the brideRecreating a contemporary Catholic wedding scene in the large Chapel presented its own unique set of challenges.

With more than 500 seats in the Chapel and only 60 extras on site, and with no digital enhancement budget to “beef up” the look of a large crowd, the Assistant Director was kept busy coordinating the movement of extras around the chapel to fill in seating as camera angles changed.

The WeddingAt the same time, the DP and the grip team had their own set of challenges in moving the camera dolly down the one hundred foot aisle and capturing the scope of the space as the DP and Director worked various camera angles for the wedding scenes.

4k lighting was suspended on scaffolding outside the massive stained glass windows to provide the ’sunlit’ illumination on what was actually a very grey and cloudy day.
