2DG’s Top10 Favorite videos for 2009

2009 started for me with a great gift..
I made the EVENTDV top 25 list for the first time!
wish there were words to describe how i felt that day…

then came traveling ..lots of traveling…
from Thessaloniki to Orestiada, to Monemvasia, to Elounda Crete, to Igoumenitsa ,to Mytilene, to Kefalonia , to Chalkidiki ,to Papigo, to South beach MIAMI!! and a dozen more places..

2009 was the year of the Teaser Trailers,you will find some of the “most viewed” teasers in the list below.

I want to thank all the couples that trusted me and gave us the opportunity to be part of their wedding day..

2009 was also the year that gave birth to WEPRO (a friends only group/forum).

As many of you know around this time i post my TOP10 favorite videos of the year,

The first one is probably one of the most emotional pieces i’ve ever had the pleasure of shooting and editing !!!!

Spiros Shizakis Χμμ προσωπικα τουλαχιστον με το CS4 και μονο με αυτο δεν εχω κανενα προβλημα στο HD.Ειχα μεχρι που εστησα το τελευταιο quicktime pro το οποιο υποθετω οτι εβαλε τον δικο του h264 codec και ειδα αμεσως διαφορα.Μολις εχω τα λεφτα παντως θα παω για MacPro και Final Cut σιγουρα.’)
Ως συνηθως αλλο ενα φοβερο μονταζ , ειδικα οι ληψεις ειναι φοβερες.

ΥΓ Αμα ειναι η πρωτη υλη καλη δεν χρειαζονται καν σάλτσες 🙂

December 9, 2009 - 14:47

2dgstyle δεν εχει να κανει με το premiere,
το vimeo ξανασυμπιεζει το αρχειο που σηκωνω.
το αρχειο που παραδιδω εχει πολυ καλυτερη εικονα.
Συντομα θα βρω την λυση.

December 9, 2009 - 13:51

Vasilis Δεν πιστεύω ότι το premiere κάνει για high definition.Πρέπει να δοκιμάσεις το final cut ,και τον apple prores codec,και θα δεις μεγάλη διαφορά.

Aglaia Mia vaftisi paramy8enia kai ena mwro koukli. Ftou sas familia Vanaroudaioi!!!

October 12, 2009 - 04:41

Mommy M. Το εντυπωσιακό είναι ότι έχεις πιάσει από τη λήψη στιγμές που δεν τις θυμάμαι καν – μια κίνηση, ένα βλέμμα, ένα κάτι – και τις έχεις εντάξει αβίαστα στο πλάνο σα φυσική συνέχεια. Την τεχνική δεν έχω τις γνώσεις να την κρίνω, απλά τη θεωρώ απαραίτητη (και στη δική σου περίπτωση δεδομένη!) ως εργαλείο. Όμως το συναίσθημα που βγάζεις, το ζω… και το απολαμβάνω. Όταν βλέπω το αποτέλεσμα, αναβιώνω τη μέρα – αυτό είναι το μαγικό στη δουλειά σου Lee!

October 11, 2009 - 14:42

Παντα εχει καποια σχεση με το ζευγαρι και συνηθως ειναι κατι το οποιο ακουσα την ημερα του γαμου ή της βαπτισης.

October 8, 2009 - 10:45

Vasilis Ποιτικό όπως όλες σου οι δουλειές.Αναρωτιέμαι τυχαίνει ποτέ να σου παραπονεθεί πελάτης γιατί δεν του έβαλες κάτι από καρτούν ή παιδικά τραγούδια αντί για τη μουσική που χρησιμοποιείς ;

Panagiotis & Christina -greek wedding teaser

What seemed to be a difficult day for all us thanks to the greek primeminister’s speech in the center square of Thessaloniki,
ended up giving us beautiful images in a very relaxed environment .

I hope Panagiotis didnt have a hangover the next day..!!

Heres to one of the most interesting couple i had the pleasure to work with,

October 3, 2009 - 12:21

Vasilis Απορώ πως βρίσκεις το χρόνο μέσα στην ροή της εξέλιξης του μυστηρίου να τραβάς τόσο καλλιτεχνικά πλάνα.Είναι σαν να παγώνεις το χρόνο.Φαντάσου να ήσουνα φωτογράφος τι θα βλέπαμε!

“Many” is something that i’m still working on..

thank you for stopping by,


September 21, 2009 - 14:44

John Botenam Great video great feeling great lee as always but how much does this really cost?
How do you value your work and how many people are willing to pay for this work.
“Many” you’d answer “otherwise I wouldnt do it” right?
But I was just wondering…

The stillmotion effect group.
