I dunno if I'm perhaps stepping on mods toes here or whatever, but I've counted at least 3 threads with TGA Audition videos in them. I thought "why not put all the videos together, from both FG members and non-FG members and see what's what?". So I did. Enjoy!
First up: scotth_uk's very slick production. Nicely delivered with some tasty hardware. Without wanting to piss into Scott's pocket, this is definitely one of the better efforts on YouTube right now.
If there are any other FG members who have videos on YouTube - link them here! Better yet, if there are FG members that made TGA audition videos that have *NOT* put them on YouTube yet, PUT THEM UP! We wanna see 'em!
i really enjoyed your video, you have a good personality on camera. plus you made me laugh!i think my problem was that i made mine into a 'Late Show' Sketch, so 30 second gags, move along. Was lacking a bit of real depth. Plus im 20, so i knew it was going to be an uphill battle. Plus i went nude, nobody should have to be subjected to that.
On other news, the mate of mine who owns the 121 i did i it on (its not mine! GASP) traded it in the other day........... got $200 for it.
I thought Brian Gillet was alright, he gave it a decent crack. But what pissed me off were all the half arsed attempts of someone infront on the camera 'My name is 'X' cars are good, they go fast', rubbish like that. I really commend everyone who had a go, but i can only wonder what they were thinking when they posted in their crap entries, and what Freehand thought when they watched them.
I should have my video up from the press day at the Melbourne Motorshow up soon, In Pit Lane on Channel 31 is starting up again for 2008 so if you live in Melbourne check it out. So now we just wait for Channel 7 to announce 'Australian Fifth Gear'....... you heard it hear first
And the winner of the 'most number of pointlessly convoluted transitions in a TGA audition video is ...'.as a seasoned (read - old) car user and enthusiast, the words OMG come to mind. Brave girl!
Quite sure :lol: :lol:... and welcome to FG, Esme. Are you sure you're not the girl in the vid? :lol:
Assuming that's actually you driving, I'm impressed. I dunno too many middle aged mums that can drive like that. I take it you were applying for the Aussie Stig job, then? :lol:Alas in the rest of the vid I come across (I mean that in the nicest posible way) as a middle aged mum.
That's how I feel about my vid. In hindsight, it appears I'd not so much made a TGA audition video as a pisstake of a TGA audition video. And yeah, 5,000+ views and loads of abuse from Astra fanboys is more than I could have ever dreamed of.I'm more than happy with the outcome, never really thinking that it was going to be taken seriously. It's still the most viewed of the clips on youtube, which is a great result for a day of pissing around with my mates.
