Hey guys
have a look at Stone, an aussie bike movie from the mid 70s about a bike gang in Sydney that rides mostly Z900s

Ok, I gotta do it....

"Purple Rain"



Seriously, he spends a good deal of the movie on his Purple Windjammered CM400 riding around back roads, rides it like a hooligan, and manages to get Appalonia to ride with him, take her top off, and jump in a lake.

I dare ya to find a better motorcycle hero than that.

So what if he's a creepy little guy?



Beats a crappy movie about Che.

Dirt

A movie came out in the mid/late 70's called "DIRT", bikes, trucks, bugs, rails, dirt drags, crazy movie.
I've looked for it at movie stores and never seen it.

The Stosh brothers "Adventure motorcycle Tour" and "Mexican Adventure".

These guys are hilarious, and they take on maybe a bit more than they should sometimes, but they put together some interesting movies for a couple of amateurs. Very entertaining, especially the B&E cat story. I was laughing my ass off!

I am not really sure why you would call the "Motorcycle Diaries" a fiction movie. I guess because it's has actors in it? Or are you claiming that Che never took this trip? Or that his diaries were so inaccurate that they amount to fiction? Or does the movie not follow his true diaries?

quick request

I am supposed to go in and try to finalise the above mentioned film in 12 hours.

Am having an ongoing debate with the editor (who has made, filmed, edited countless travel documentaries) about the type of footage.

He comes from a professional film making background and wants to keep it tight. That means it flows better, is more straight to the point, shorter clips, high quality clips, lots of little features along the way. And thats what we basically have now.

I agree that will indeed be better for the uninitiated ... to give them a rich flavour of the trip. But part of me also thinks the 'already into adventure motorcycling' crowd (you lot) will want maximum footage of the interesting riding bits ... even if that footage is lesser quality, taken by photo cameras on movie setting, sound less than ideal etc ... stitch together as much funky footage together as logic allows.

Any quick thoughts before I finalise this thing?

Yes, edit, edit, edit.

Then edit it again.

I rarely watch any of the posted helmet cam videos, because each 3 minute clip represents about 30 seconds of good video.

Like it or not, consumers of video are used to heavy editing and time compression and anything that plays woefully to the fantasies of fanatics the likes of your typical ADVff will fail miserably anywhere else.

It's my opinion to shoot high quality, in excellent light on every shot, and forget the filler stuff. Longer is not necessarily better, except for the ego of the filmaker.

drop all the extra stuff into an "out takes" like menu choice off of the main menu. include some behind the scenes stuff. if you have crappy sound, bg it with some royalty free music track. Use some minimal subtitling to establish setting. This way, the hard core adv guys will dig thru all the footage, while the main production can maintain flow/continuity and brevity.

Thats what I woke up this morning thinking ... Keep the main film super tight, but have an extras section on the DVD with extra footage for those who are interested.

The way its edited at the moment, there is hardly a single clip longer than about 4 seconds, apart from the opening clip

I totally agree with the clean polished, edited philosophy, however, some of the best Adventure films have a few extended ride clips that give you a feeling of what its like to be in the saddle. Otherwise, it can feel too much like a marketing video with quick 2 second snapshots of adventure.

Just my two cents, im sure its going to be awesome regardless. Cheers.
