Marriage proposals can be sweet, romantic, fast, slow, boring, amazing, flattering, and … go ahead and fill in your own words! They can be as creative as the person asking and Derick Childress has proven creativity has no bounds!
Using a technique called Light Writing, he used stop motion animation to inquire,
EMILY, WILL YOU MARRY ME?
Derick explains how he did it,
I knew I wanted to find a very special way to propose to a very special woman. I liked the look of light writing, but I wanted to do something on a much larger scale. To my knowledge, a light writing of this size had never been done before. I had the idea of placing a camera at the top of a tall building and mapping out the words “Emily, will you marry me?” over part of the city.

I’m still not sure whether or not Emily said yes, but I hope she did.Technorati Tags: light writing, marriage proposal
