Thats cool! I've got a mate who used to be involved with Cruzin nag and Queensland street car, he's up for doin some photo's vid footage aswell. He more interested in runnin some cine8 grainy/arty film footage along with whoever does the flashy stuff.

A doc would be cool as hell to show the grandkids though tho! Assuming I ever propagate :D

Outstanding stuff.
it would be great if he could get some background shooting in months before the ride started.

however, great work!

If you have a film crew on your trip consider the implications. you will get a lot of directions, so good shots can be taken... may not be all that relaxing... day after day...

I'm hoping to catch up withthe guy at BZ's suggestion this week and see what he is thinking...

Careful

Post by XSChop » Wed Jan 28, 2009 8:35 am

Careful there.
As soon as you get money involved you get problems.
Imagine if all riders filmed have to join actors equity and recieve payment which can't be just a token payment because of the industry rules .....
Riders (actors) have to sign waivers saying they won't claim part of the royalties and that they all go to the club or whatever.... etc etc
It just goes on and on.
I'm not saying that is necessarily the case but just be careful.
It's not about the Bling /:~)>
Well maybe a bit !

Well, we're not actors, we're essentially participants in a documentary.
I think we would agree to give of ourselves voluntarily.
The likelihood that the docco will become a hollywood blockbuster are slim, at best. Aiming high might mean a 1 minute segway on channel 31, the best offer would be not much more.
This would be human interest and a really great offering for our children, grand children and our peers.
More than likely the guy who shoots it will do so for nothing. If he benifits financially from it, good luck to him.
Stay on his good side though, and he might just turn you into Australia's version of the Marlborough Man.

This isnt as easy as holding a camera and pointing, its hard work and only the ones who know what they're doing and do it well, make any kind if impact.
After its shot, it has to get edited, sound added, edited agin, checked over, and hopefully have fuzzy panels added in the corner when we're having a beer in the XXXXX bar and XXXty show.
If someone wants to tag along and shoot the thing, offer him your best side, a cold beer, a warm female companion and something controversial that can be bleeped out, at least.

At this stage I'm not having much luck with any of the responce's that i have put out , so our other option would be if i bought a camera and do the filming myself,........ or , you can get these small camera's that can fit
almost anywhere on your bike or your helmet http://stores.shop.ebay.com.au/Adventur ... QQ_armrsZ1[/url]

there cheaper make's out there starting at around $95.00 , http://cgi.ebay.com.au/WIRELESS-HELMET- ... 7C294%3A50[/url]
so if i can get a good deal on say two of them I'll ask another member to wear one , so we can another perpextive .
So what are your thought's on this.

you could even mount it on different bikes on different days. just for a further change.

one thing, no speeding with the camera on, it can be used as evidence.
