A Flipbook Proposal Becomes Real for Wedding Invites via @designtaxi
For our wedding invitation, Lindsey and I fell in love with the idea of a flip book depicting a proposal. Lindsey asked if I would speak my lines “will you marry me?” aloud. At the time of filming, we weren’t yet engaged.
“I’m not going to say it out loud untill someday when the time is right."
We ran through our proposal scene five times in a row. The first time was a mess but we hit our stride and by the fourth time it was perfect. On our fifth and final take, I said aloud, "Will you marry me?” Lindsey lost it. She didn’t know if it was real or part of the act.
“Yes!” she exclaimed.
I converted the best footage to still frames and edited them into a flip book. Most of this flip book is from the moment before the real proposal.
