ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS

Just in case you missed these pics from Liz and Joe's engagement website, here they are.

FUN MOVIE FACT # 6
The engagement photos you see here and in the movie are not the original resolution photos. The photos used here and in the movie were downloaded from the engagement website at low resolution.  The editor upscaled each one to be usuable in the UHD movie.

BEHIND THE SCENES EXTRAS

VIDEO # 1:  The Fly Me To the Moon Liz and Joe Mini Movie was first conceived as a slide show by Janet (Joe's Mom).  The director asked Janet if she was open to ideas, he would write a script to demonstrate how a mini movie could work instead.
This video you see below is a storyboard of that script.

FUN MOVIE FACTS # 7
The movie was supposed to be a surprise for Liz and Joe to watch the day before the wedding.
But Janet and Steve liked it so much that they couldn't wait for Liz and Joe to watch it.
They also wanted to make sure Liz and Joe would approve.
Then Liz, Joe, Janet and Steve drove to the Director's house where they got to see where the movie was created.  It was such a wonderful surprise for the Director who instantly saw that Liz and Joe are truly even more beautiful in person than in pictures.

VIDEO # 2:  After the mock previews in the first part of the storyboard, the story picks up with Janet figuring out that the best way to have Liz and Joe's story told in a movie that was not written by human directors, but by trusting that God himself has already begun to write the best Liz and Joe movie of all, and will continue to write it in years to come. 

This realization is a perfect transition to the Fly Me To the Moon part of the mini movie you saw. 

The first storyboard incorporated some AI animation from a few pictures, which you'll see in the video below.

EASTER EGG # 1
The music used for the Star Wars Mandalorian preview is actually the Marvel Universe Theme.
