In preparation for his own wedding in 2010, Josh developed a Video Guestbook system to record the messages of guests at his wedding. Having approached the guestbook, guests are asked to press a large red button once to begin recording, then again to finish. Because there was no camera operator present, some of the messages left by guests are a lot more personal than they might otherwise be. Also, free from the critical eye of a videographer, guests create some very silly drunken videos.
The system stores each video as an individual file, making it easy to edit the order or possibly remove certain clips before outputting a final consolidated guestbook video.
The Video Guestbook has been used at three weddings, and received high praise from hosts and guests alike.
