I think it's BEAUTIFUL!!! FANTASTIC!!! EXTRAORDINARY!!!
I say this as an amateur filmmaker (even less than amateur), but with a background in 4-A advertising/marketing, and here's the problem with it from a marketing standpoint:
Most people are ugly, and they realize that fact. Plus, they're not actors, like the subjects in that clip appear to be. So right away, people are going to be intimidated, like thinking, "This is my wedding day, and I'm going to be expected to spend half of it doing a shoot? And how could Ipossibly do it as well as THAT!?"
Also, the PARENTS of the couples getting married, who are paying for this whole shabang, are going to think, "What the hell is this? I just want nice pictures of Uncle Sol who's going to drop dead any day now."
Man, from a marketing standpoint, you have a tough nut to crack. That stuff is GORGEOUS, but not only will it scare away certain people because of its serious cinematic nature, but also because it looks so dang expensive.
I don't know where you live, but if you can get that (on a disc) into the hands of the bluebloods getting married, the rich folks, then that piece is PERFECT!!! OUTSTANDING!!!
But for the average person, I just think it's too scary and intimidating.
It still gets a 10 out of 10 though, and if I win the lottery and dump my wife and marry an 18-year-old (I'm 51), you're HIRED!!!
