I just have to share an artistic "video" image with my "still" photography friends.

I make my living as a videographer, and photography is my hobby. Last month, we had a very different request from a client: To record the funeral of a fallen Marine, their son. Needless to say, it was quite a challenge, but I just wanted to share with you all the results:

The video is 5 minutes long and has been receiving a bit of press in some localized areas around the country.

Very moving. What a tragic loss.

Thanks for all the nice comments.

Needless to say, this was a very difficult shoot for us - and difficult to put together. We are a tiny company - only 2 of us, so the media attention we've received was pretty exciting. I was interviewed on WGN radio in Chicago, and that day, the video received 23,000 hits!

I have been making my living with images since 1988, but never has my work touched so many people.

Thanks for sharing the link. I agree with the others in saying that it was moving. However, if you don't mind a bit of criticism 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. Otherwise, great job on a difficult project.

I love the constant flow of slow, deliberate motion as you panned to get your shots. This, combined with the deliberate motions of the soldiers and the touching music made for a very stirring tribute. What an incredible gift you gave the family in the creation of this production. Thanks for sharing!
