The Cartier – Style et Luxe

Posted: February 9th, 2014 | Author: | Filed under: Automotive, Videography | No Comments »

Wow, wow, wow. Beautiful cars were everywhere at the Cartier Style et Luxe concours d’elegance. Shame we couldn’t spend all day taking video of these cars, some of which I will probably never see again in the flesh/metal… that’s unless I go again this year, which lets be honest is a pretty strong possibility.

The sun was out and it was humid as anything, I had to take a break pretty much after every car and try and compose a shot, then wiping my brow and swigging some water. I would highly recommend this great car show for any car enthusiast. Enjoy.

South Mimms – Honda Meet

Posted: January 28th, 2014 | Author: | Filed under: Automotive, Videography | No Comments »

This was shot back in April 2013 and for some reason I didn’t edit, time passed and as more videos came out about the event I slowly forgot about it. Looking back at the footage there was a large variety of newer EP Civic’s and only a handful of EG and my favourite EF based Civics. I decided to concentrate on the later and focus on the older Honda’s most of which are part of the 4GUK collective.

The video features a few sections slowed down, mostly on drops and really to let the viewer take in the car in more detail as some vids normally flick in cars too fast that you usually forget about them. Overall a nice quick edit that didn’t take too long. Enjoy!

Prept Showdown – Brands Hatch

Posted: January 23rd, 2014 | Author: | Filed under: Automotive, Videography | No Comments »

This show was actually in 2013 and one of the last shows of the year. It was a small show but still had some great cars on offer also got to go around the track with a mate. I decided whilst I’m doing nothing I might as well be doing something! So I sat down and put something together. Nice and quick edit, not too much colour correction, chose the song to suit and I’m happy with it! Woohoo

Edge Automotive’s 1996 Mazda RX-7 Show Car

Posted: January 21st, 2014 | Author: | Filed under: Automotive, Videography | No Comments »

Not normally the kind of car I go for but this was just posed in the middle of the hanger and accessible from all angles with the camera so I thought why not! I didn’t have much time getting footage but I thought I better get enough just to put even a 1 minute video together. I didn’t have a lot of shots so with this video I ran the footage through Twixtor to get some slow motion.

My lap at the Nurburgring

Still can’t believe I went… definitely going back next year. Here’s a video using the GoPro of my last lap with my mate Chris in the passenger seat. Two things – I spelt Nurburgring – Nurburging and I totally loved the lap, even if it wasn’t perfect. Totally recommend to any petrol head!

Players Classic Show @ Goodwood Motor Circuit

Posted: June 11th, 2013 | Author: | Filed under: Automotive, Videography | No Comments »

I’d been looking forward to this show for quite some time and it was a chance to try filming a different automotive scene. I must say all the cars were top notch and it was a nice and chilled event. Definitely going to the next event. Managed to turn around the video in a few days which I’m very happy with, just need to keep the momentum going. Enjoy!

Brooklands Museum Mini Day 2013

Posted: May 26th, 2013 | Author: | Filed under: Automotive, Videography | No Comments »

It’s been a while. A long while, it’s really time I jump back on board and start this video malarky again.

This video was taken at Brooklands Museum for the 2013 Mini Day. I’ve shot this event for the last two years but every year something went wrong. The first year I tired out a steadycam that I tried making… failed. The next year one of the SD cards ended up getting corrupted… failed. So this year I had to make it work, it was cold, so cold that I had to used gloves as it was raining and even sleeting at points.

For this video I thought I’d play on the fact that Brooklands his a place of history so made it feel old at the beginning and then brought it back to the present. I more enjoy these small events as you can take time to really see the cars and pick out ones that stand out.
