Due to the slowing of DVD sales and my incessant need to share my work with the world, I present to you my Formula Drift 2010 Recap video. With footage of every FD stop I made last year, including Long Beach, Atlanta, Evergreen, Las Vegas, and Irwindale. This video represents my first year as a full-time drifting videographer and exemplifies my feelings of the sport in general. There is so much drama and heartache, but like life itself, we find joy through the pain and misfortune. Cars break down, wrecks happen, sponsors bail, but when it’s all over, we come away with more friends, wisdom, and courage than ever before. (more…)
It has always interested me to watch the background area of a competition, and all that is involved to bring it to life.
Formula D has so many people working, moving, going… There is a full TV show being produced, professional race event taking place, thousands of fans… And yet, it seems like most things move at a different pace in Las Vegas. The cars are still in a rush, but everyone else, everyone behind the scenes…
Once I started editing to this song (Sundriped), I felt the pace change from some of the other videos I have done more recently, so I countered with a different choice of footage out of my stash.
In the last video, I featured Justin Shreeve, Joe Ayala and Yoshi Shindo. In this video, I threw in a quick clip of Abbitt Wilkerson, another Northwest videographer. His older brother, Walker Wilkerson, acquired an FD license at the final Formula D event in Irwindale. Keep an eye out for what Abbitt, Shreeve, myself and the rest of YAER Productions will do for Walker’s upcoming 2011 driver package.
Ian Dillon, of Factory 83, also collaborated with YAER Productions, providing graphics for this and other upcoming edits.
