Dil Jaanta Hai (The Heart Knows)

New postby Dennis Wood on Wed Jun 10, 2009 12:25 pm

Well, Kevin Shahinian has done it again with "Dil Jaanta Hai (The Heart Knows)" in terms of raising the bar for event videography. Kevin has set a world standard in our opinion for concept wedding filming once again. This piece stars the wedding party as well as a guest appearance by Hollywood's Gerry Bednob. Kevin wrote, directed, edited and shot the piece on XH-A1 cams using Cinevate's Pegasus Heavy Lifter, Durus Follow Focus, Brevis MP.2, Zeiss 35mm lenses, Ballare Dolly, Cinevate Mattebox and a few other tidbits from our collection of gear. How many wedding vids start out with a 30ft jib/dolly shot that racks focus on a CGI element? You can visit Kevin over at his site:

If you'd like to see the full HD (650MB) MPEG file, you can stream or download it from Vimeo:

Here's the 11 minute piece in streaming f4v and iPod encode: Crank up your speakers..there's two musical numbers :-)

That's really fun stuff! While the work is great, what's even more impressive to me is that they have tapped into a high-end market that is willing and able to pay out for this kind of product. That is the real key to success, IMO.

This is an amazing inspiration for film-makers turn wedding cinematographers. I started making short films and stories before becoming a wedding cinematographer though always had the thought to blending the element of short film into weddings but the demand and market is way out of reach. Nobody felt it was necessary or lets just say they are not willing to pay for such luxury services. Just glad that Kevin has a found a market within his network as a possible start to a new trend of high quality products and services for the wedding market. Nice, fun & entertaining. Will be sharing this video with my clients and friends.
