Best Friends at the Intl Motorcycle Show

Lorne, Paul and I try to destroy as many bikes as possible at the 2012 expo.

Unfortunately, due to the rain they cancelled our real opportunity to do some damage by cancelling the demo rides.

Nice video TK.

It's almost like I was there.

Lorne looks like he wants a scrambler.

Hell, I want that Triumph!!!
I think that was about the coolest bike there in my opinion, but I have a soft spot for those old British bikes.

Thanks for the positive comments.

I'm trying to get better at the filming and editing stuff in a variety of scenarios.
Funny thing is, the shots you take time to set are sometimes the most boring or weakest of the bunch, while the random stuff wen your not really thinking about it sometimes turns out the best.

At any rate, my advise, film tons of stuff, everything and anything, way more then you think you may ever need. When it comes to working out the editing and final cuts youll find you may not have enough variety to keep it interesting.

I need to work on my interview and commentating skills. Paul did an awesome job with the KTM. I need to do more of that....but I feel so cheesy doing it...

I did manage to interview the grill cook and that added some texture to the film short.

The intro is kind of out of context and might have to be cut out, but I was really wanting to play with that cutout/masking effect and make something whimsical. I had that still photo of those two high fiving on the Ducati's and it just took off from there. Kind of a personal joke amongst friends, but I hope you all got a kick out of it.

Also take lots of still shots to go along with the video.

But I digress......

Nice job on the video. Great tunes, too. How do you work around the copyright stuff?

Usually I use creative commons or public domain music but it takes quite a while to search out something that fits the mood.

For this one I just threw down some tracks, and yes, You Tube detects it and puts some restrictions based on the publishers wishes. For instance: this particular video cannot be viewed in Germany and Australia due to copyright laws.

If need be, I would go back a re-edit the music portion but for now, its just for fun and personal enjoyment.

Great job!!

I’ve tried to put music “captured” from YouTube into my slide shows and what few videos I’ve done. Always worried about the copyright issue.

I guess if the music is old enough or an instrumental that is not readily recognizable as to the artist, it may not get picked up by the “watchers”.

I’d like to know if it’s legal to record a piece of music playing on my speakers and then use it in the show. Not downloading or such.

Most of the time they do detect the copyrighted music and depending on the publisher block it in certain countries or not. It really depends on the song and the publishers.
