When you're a filmmaker, you naturally want to create an epic engagement video of you and your fiancée. But how do you do that without her asking about that professional cinema camera following you around? This filmmaker figured it out, and the results were well worth it.
Matthew Paquette is a cinematographer based in Barrie, ON. He recently decided to propose to his girlfriend, Clara, and wanted to make a video documenting the event. But of course, having someone follow them around with his RED Scarlet W might seem a bit strange and would tip her off, so Paquette asked her if she wanted to film couple-themed stock video at a carnival they frequented, with Clara unaware of the true purpose of the trip. She agreed, and of course, it was easy for them to film the footage, as all their interactions were natural and organic. It wasn't until they were on the Ferris Wheel (one of their first memories) that Paquette popped the question and the true purpose of the trip was revealed.
As far as engagement videos go, this is quite the accomplishment! The result was well worth it. Congratulations to Clara and Matthew!
