Default Corowa fun

Here's a preview segment for the 2010 Corowa DVD mostly shot on a rather fun mud trip. Let me know what you think of the treatment.

As usual your photographic skills are a joy to behold.

To hear the twin row wasp was and added plus.

The little kid disapearing into the mud was great I hope he got out.

Once again thank you for making life a little more enjoyable.

Regards

Col

Hi Keith,
Terrific slow-mo video there, great detail. Personally though a small part of the footage when your camera was not stationary was a little hard on my eyes with motion blur. Could just be me though at the end of a long day.

Thanks for your kind words. Glad you like 'em. Also pleased you enjoyed the Boomerang short Col. It is a most charismatic and impressive aeroplane.

Ryan was it the shot from the Mack looking down you found hard to watch?

Some of the shots of the Weapons Carrier with all the water were kindly shot by Andrew Macintosh, also the one of the Jeep coming towards camera with the muddy water.

I've finally found some time to work on the Corowa 2010 DVD as you can see. It will be released as usual at the 2011 event - I can't wait for that!

The stars of the show were MLU people - see if you can tell me who they are.

Default Boomerang

Thanks Warren

These sorts of things are fairly carefully briefed. In the last shot where the Boomerang lands overhead Matt Denning, the pilot planned a short landing near the beginning of the strip which meant I had to set the camera rolling and walk to one side, but the instruction for the low pass was "Just don't hit me". It's quite an exciting sight and sound. On the takeoff Matt deliberately held her down to build speed before zooming skyward.

I have just added another short clip, this one is silent. I shot it at dusk from the back seat of a Harvard and it shows the only two airworthy Boomerangs in the world flying together for the first time from the Temora Aviation Museum. Here it is: http://vimeo.com/16309149

Excellent footage Keith. I can't wait to see some of the interviews especially some you did on Sunday afternoon after a few people had been having wine or two. I have had numerous emails and phone calls from people who want a copy of the DVD.

Default Great production

Kieth

I have only been a member for a short time and am looking forward to purchasing your 2010 DVD. From what I have seen it looks like a very professional product and can't wait to buy a copy. So if you are taking orders put me down as a purchase, catch you at Corawa 2011,

Litt le Jo

Hi Keith,
Been giving your query some thought.
1/ The Corowa DVD is/has become an important historical item in its own right.
2/ It must be near impossible to distill one week, 200 vehicles and thousands of people into an hour or two on a disc.
3/ You can't make everyone happy all the time.

I do have trouble some trouble with "moving camera" footage like Ryan, maybe because my eyes are not what they used to be.

One of the biggest thrills of these videos (Ok, DVD's) are the sounds. To hear what some of these vehicles sound like can be more important than the vision. The look of a vehicle may interest or excite, but only the sound can give you goosebumps and make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. (That damn Boomerang does it everytime, its in the top five). Its almost aural viagra!

I expect this will be your biggest seller, as anything to do with Jeeps seems to be more popular (and more expensive) than any other military vehicle.

Also loved the kid on the bike, pure gold. Ever considered doing a Blooper reel? You must have hours of mistakes and stuff ups filed away.

Waiting with antici.................pation for more.
Rich.



OK, top five mechanical symphony's, in no particular order:
V12 doing a very low and fast pass
Whistling Boomerang
BRM V16 at speed on a race track
Any engine firing for the first time after YOU have just put it together
Your choice, can't do all your homework for you.
