Kyle Proposes to Christina – A Proposal Video

It started out as just an idea that while on our vacation to the Philippines I was going to pop the question.  The plan was to simply get video of the actual proposal itself and her reaction and call it a day.  Quickly after coming to that decision I somehow stumbled on another video that someone had done that pushed me to make a proposal video in addition to filming her reaction.

So I kicked things off trying to recruit some help.  I had a quick coffee meeting with a busy of mine who had done sound projects in the past as well as another friend I thought could run a second camera for me.  Once those two were on board I recruited her mother and began the process of scheduling the family members for the interviews and location.

The proposal video ended up being a lot more work than I anticipated.  Primarily because I was doing most of the work around it.  Organizing, filming, directing, editing etc.  I did have help from a few of my friends during the filming phase which helped a lot, but I can understand now why films generally are broken out into so many roles.

A huge thanks to those who participated in the film both in front of the camera and behind the scenes.  Without you this would not have been possible to pull off.
