Today saw completion of 10-days focused ‘motorcycle escape’ filming, editing and logistics for the VideoBiker Production Team. Having already passed the 100 video milestone and filled to many hard-drives to mention, it’s still remarkable to tot up the time, manpower and resources required to output a 120 second motorcycle escape promotional video! Aside from planning, meetings and site visits – over five days of filming, the cameras ‘rolled’ at ten varied locations. Six motorcycles were involved, along with three actors and 11 extras.
A big thank you to Adrian Cuddy and Laura Redmond at The Swan Hotel in Broadway – for making us so welcome and for the supply of bacon sandwiches. Thanks also to management at The Farncombe Estate (Broadway), for allowing us to film on their grounds. Thanks also to SEADA for opening their offices to us on a Saturday and for their subsequent patience as we ran over time slightly. Also, a big thank you to Carol Lane and team at Venue Xpresso in Alcester – for allowing us to take over their lovely cafe for the morning. Your cakes and bacon sandwiches were outstanding. Finally, many thanks to Russ and team at RMT – for opening their off-road site at short notice for some extra footage.
Finally, a massive thank you to the 25 wonderful people who gave up their time over five days of filming to make the first ever VideoBiker promotional video (Actualise your motorcycle escape) possible. With the right team, a worthy mission & healthy supply of bacon butties – good things happen! And an extra special word of thanks to our very own Video Jedi Masters – Callum & Alex, who worked tirelessly for 10 days, locked to their Mac’s & surviving on a diet of club biscuits, pepsi & curry. Without teamwork, none of this would have happened. Thank you everyone & watch this space for the first ever VideoBiker promotional video.
