I thought that the video was too much like a recruiting video for the Marines. I personally would have opted for fewer shots of Marines saluting and more of the man and his loved ones.
This was my first funeral video. We shot the Marines sisters wedding last year, which is how they knew of us.

When I got the call, I thought we would simply be placing 1 static camera in the church. But they said they wanted something "artistic and creative" like his sisters wedding video. I had no clue how to make something creative out of a funeral. Other than the marines movements and details, I was not sure what else to shoot.

It was edited and on-line the following day for family that was overseas and could not attend the funeral. Word of the site spread to the Marines, and they wanted his buddies, and all Marines to view it. They said it was great to show how the fallen are being honored at home.

What a tremendous tribute not just to the one man, but to all the men and women who serve. Thank you for sharing.
Yes! It has become a tribute not just to Bobby Warns, but to all.

Thanks for the comments.

I understand how Marines are, my brother is a Navy Chaplin down at Camp Pendleton, and I'm sure they loved the video tribute. What I said was just my own personal taste nothing more. During the first stage of the invasion of Iraq my brother's Marines attached to the USS Ponce were some of the first to die in action. Taking away nothing from what our soldiers are doing I just wish they all come home safe. Hopefully you won't have to repeat your services.

Great job. Very hard subject. I am amazed that you managed to get all the angles and footage without a full crew. The edit was done very fast and well, I only dabble so it take me forever to finish an edit. This must have been great for those (as you said) who could not attend.

It actually was not that difficult to get those shots. I knew what I wanted to do and knew the type of shots I needed.

What was so exciting about this whole event is the impact we have had on people - especially because we are such a small company - only two of us.

Here, you can find a video clip of the media attention we've received: http://civideo.com/business/marine.html

Just wanted to let you know the impact this video has had on the people I work with. I work for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Although I am a civilian we have a strong military heritage. Many of my fellow workers have done tours in Iraq. After the 43 people in my work unit viewed the video there was not a dry eye in the house. Many of us have opposing views of the war.

You have done a great job with the topic while not taking a political stand. I applaud your talent and sensitivity. I do more video work than still photograpy and can fully appreciate the attention to detail that shines in this project..

Regards,

Mark Williams

Very artistic yet moving, and to think that there were only 2 of you who did this. Great choice of music and the right amount of words spoken. I especially love the idea of having people saying something about the guy. Thanks for sharing.
