STL Rockingham Meihan

The Final Wall Runs: Rockingham Meihan Video

Following on from my last post that covered the final Rockingham Meihan drift event, I put together my video footage from the day and threw it on YouTube. Once again, I used my trusty old camcorder to film this footage. Enjoy!

Drift Matsuri 2018 Video

Drift Matsuri 2018 on Tape

I make no secret of the fact that I’m far from the best photographer or videographer out there. I take pictures of things I like and film things that I see using the fairly average equipment that I have and, thankfully, a lot of people seem to enjoy it! For the most recent Drift Matsuri event at Anglesey, I decided to try something different and chose to film the event through the lens of an almost twenty-year old camcorder.

It’s amazing how the different format altered my filming style, but it also made me think harder about what I wanted to film. In particular, the classic optical zoom feature was particularly handy and made me rethink my approach to some shots.

Getting this technology (which is quite possibly as old as many of the readers of this website) to work with my modern equipment took a great deal of time, research and experimentation and I hope that you enjoy the full video below.

STL3 C33 Drifting

On-Board at STL!3

In between everything else at Driftland last week I managed to sneak out on track and put in a few sessions myself in my C33. I hastily chucked a few GoPros on the car to capture some footage of me driving my own car properly for the first time in nine months or so (I’m not including my two whole laps at Three Sisters the other week in that statement!). Apologies for the angles and sound being far from perfect; next time I’ll take more time to set the cameras up properly. Check out the full video below.
