So I have been getting inundated with the question “When will the DNC video drop”. Well, I have some potentially bad news, my goal at DNC was:
- To practice new techniques using a brand new color profile called SLOG2
- To get used to using new 2K/4K external RAW recording device called the Odyssey 7Q+
- To see if a 4K production is feasable for shooting a feature length doucmentary at a race
- To test out what a Champaing Bottle Cam is would look like and if it is feasable
As you can see, my goal was not shooting an episode of “Come Drive With Us”. I did gather a lot of very usable footage that will absolutely be used in future “Come Drive With Us” episodes as B-Roll shots, but there will not be a stand-alone DNC video this year. I’m not totally conviced that it’s time to start shooting “Re-runs”. Yes, each year DNC offers new and interresting challenges that result in brand new story lines, but there are just too many events that I still want to capture.
Video produciton is NOT my day-job so I only have time enough to do four episodes of “Come Drive With Us” per year. I do have some exciting productions coming out very soon; in April I am launching a new series to help promote my channel a bit; it’s called “Legends of R/C” and I am kicking off this new series by focusing on our industires very hard working Meida Guys (LiveRC, NeoBuggy & RedRC).
The first “Come Drive With Us” for the 2017 seaons shoots in April at the Psycho Nitro Blast with an expected release date of June…ish…
