Wow very amazing compare to the teaser. Hi Louis, will there be any post-processing technique like the one in the movie?

The amateur photographer in me is inspired. I probably need to view this a few more times to absorb more tips!

Thanks Louis, I love this video clip, not only learn about lightings but also the way you built relationship with your client.

Fabulous! I was pretty blown away with the ending sequence of before and after edit shots. Just a little observation if you don't mind, the audio would be better with some compression. Meaning to say it keeps getting suddenly louder and suddenly softer along the way, especially when it goes back n forth between live speech and narated speech. Audio compression would make it more consistent in terms of volume.

the shot is not really. amazing..cause she is a pro ballerina dancer..so it won't be so hard to get the right action.

This is by far the best video segment in your series of videos. It's inspiring, it's informative, you are leading by example, and you are showing us how it's done. Looking at the locations, I would have second guessed and possibly skipped, but seeing how you did it, what you saw from the locations, just gave me a new light. No pun intended. This is the kind of stuff I would like to see from this site, especially when a fee is involved for subscription.
I waited till past midnight (-5 GMT) to wait for the launch and watched all the videos till 2:00AM until I got stuck on this one at 29 seconds. Looks like it's fixed and I finished watching it this morning.
Congratulations to you Louis and to your team! By the way, you spoke very well, very clear, and avoided "lah"!

Watched it seamlessly on office network (10mbps metro-e). Home with 1mbps, it's jerky a bit but if you wait for it to finish, it's ok.
Content is just wow. Otherwise, the audio volume is a bit variable. need to equalize a bit. This is the portion I'm paying for :)

I am truly inspired now! Thank you so much Louis and the team for this amazing video!
The light and architecture is beautiful there!
I also really enjoyed seeing how you gradually built a very fun and positive relationship with your subject matter! Gail seems like a very fun and passionate model!
Again, Thank you very much and I look forward to more videos on this fantastic website!

Based on the comments from various viewers and the abundance of comments on this video, it is a no brainer that this is the type of contents viewers would like to see, especially if they have to pay.
