One Ring To Bind Them: Lord Of The Wedding Rings Fancy Dress Ceremony Is Fantastical

A groom ditched his shoes and tie as he transformed into the hobbit, Frodo Baggins, for his Lord of the Rings wedding day. Will Grant, 28, who’s a big fan of the J.R.R. Tolkien fantasy novel, convinced his wife-to-be, Amy Gander, 33, to turn their garden in Woolacombe, North Devon into Middle Earth for their big day. They rowed to a pond where a man dressed as Gandalf took their vows and a well-trained eagle delivered the wedding rings.

DCN Video Pick: Moses Boyd | Stranger Than Fiction…



DCN Video Pick: Moses Boyd | Stranger Than Fiction (Director’s Cut) by in/out // Warning: video contains flashing images. The brief spoke of ‘hyper-musicality’. Outside of the obvious, this got us thinking about how might a sound ‘look’? What are our instruments, as filmmakers? First though, we had to set the mood and feel of the piece. Moses wanted something ‘sinister and mystic’ and in line with the album’s themes we anonymised the performers in a shroud of light. The use of a reflective spray and a singular spotlight achieved this look; haloing the band in this intense glow. All captured in-camera. Playing off this visual hook we then set about composing our own rhythm. The looping trajectories, the projected shapes and the strobing light source were all used to achieve that desired ‘musicality’. Plus, by tethering all the action to the track and dolly, we established a perpetual motion; mapping out the music as much as the space. Under the guidance of DP Spike Morris we pushed the in-camera capabilities of film to visually sculpt the music, etching out the track’s propulsive production wherever possible. The materiality of film meant we could really hack the medium to bend and manipulate the images around the music. Having the necessary ingredients in the edit was important to build an arc that does justice to the track, whilst also being true to the in-camera imagery captured on the day. We’d like to thank all our crew and a special mention to our producer Louisa Plumstead who did so much with so little.
