I'll get some more video out as soon as I can get some more clips so I can piece together us going down all our available lines, and to put some tunes with it. Hopefully we'll have our almost completed DJ double finished by then.

And thx for the comments, gents.

Great setup you got there. One piece of advice(If i may) Get a tripod
It would help for footage filmed from a stationary spot, but becomes a moot point when you want to follow a rider along a certain line.
A helmet cam is on the purchase list though.
And if we get a wild hair up our ass, we may build a zip line and do what they did in Roam. :D

sick

you worked hard on building all that stuff and it seems to ride nicley
Got to ride out there today a bit with some buddies (camcorder battery died though). It gets funner and funner every time. We almost got the tranny of the first DJ double finished, but not quite. Imma bout to pull what's left of my receding hair out of my head in anticipation of hitting it. :madman:
I'm sure it's gotten cliche' around here, but that BR is just a freakin stellar performer; once you get used to the weight.
I'll get some more footage when we get that double done, so we can film us hittin that. Hopefully that will be by the end of the month.

Try to setup a go-around line on some of the stunts for filming. I found that I got a better perspective on some of them by filming from below and to the side. Plus it's super fun trying to follow someone on a teeter :eekster:

The way that you put it, do you mean for that to be achieved using a helmet cam, or someone walking next to a rider?
I do plan on doing at little scrimping and saving, then splurging on one of those GoPro helmet cams.

I'm talking about using a helmet cam setup, it's very tough to keep the subject in frame and steady while walking unless it's a slow section. I have the GoPro and love that thing btw. Not the greatest quality but I'm not looking to make the next "Roam" either :p There's a very good review with some helpful suggestions on here right now (by Leel).

Yeah. Saw that review. That's the main reason why I am going to get a GoPro. But that has to take a back seat to getting shots for my dogs and getting rear struts replaced on the STi.
Until then, I'll probably just shoot everything in segments along all the lines and edit it in that fashion...much like the video above.

Nothing wrong with the way you're currently shooting at all. My biggest problem is neglecting to get the type of shots you have and only using helmet cam video. Variety is what makes the video interesting for sure.
