Very First Client - CheeChew & Callie
November 7, 2009
The day is 7th Nov 2009 Today marks a very special day for me since my start of providing this montage service.
Special indeed as I’ve personally witness how it is like, to have your work shown in front of nearly 500 friends and family members of the blissful couple. Tonight was the completion of my ‘first’ montage work after I decided that I should provide it to earn another source of income.
Thinking back on how it began….
I have a colleague coming to me sometime after my wedding.
“Anntonii, I like the way you do all these video stuff before the march in. Please help me do for my daughter for her wedding, just give me your quote.”
A simple request and it was how fast the deal was concluded.
23rd August was the date I’ve first met with the bride and groom. The pressure comes when you don’t know your clients personally.
“What were their expectations?” “Can I deliver to their request?”
All these negative thoughts lingered around my head as I walked towards them. I take some time and pain to explain that I’m not really a professional but someone who tried his best to do up his own wedding montage.
“It’s ok, my dad says your work is good!” The bride exclaimed.
I felt a certain load rest upon my shoulders as I tried to keep up to their expectations. We discussed over a few times and changed quite a bit till it was finally approved by them just 1 week before their wedding.
Finally the day comes as it was aired during the start of the banquet.
For some stupid reason, I was late for the banquet and the montage was one third shown. As I entered the darkened ballroom, I tried to scan around for the reactions of the guests.
Some laughed, some cheered and others simply smiled as the montage rolled to its finale.
It helps when you have a bunch of colleagues who support you as I received a lot of cheer from them when the lights were back.
It was really amazing to see something that you’ve done been view by hundreds of people at the same time. Though it’s not a movie nor mtv… it’s a story been told with merely photos, something which cannot be recreated.
I’m all geared up for my 2nd, 3rd & 4th Montage as the deadline draws itself nearly. Hopefully it will draw the same praises all around.
Regardless of the whatever outcome in years to come, whether I will still be doing this montage services is not really important, as tonight is indeed a memorable night.
Have a blissful wedding,
Mr & Mrs Wong.
