Have they seen your road trip and thought how hard can it be!!!Season 12 episode 2: Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May travel to the US to take three new generation muscle cars on an epic road trip from San Francisco to the heart of Utah.
Haha, yes!! I had to pause that frame while I was editing too. I came across this line and had to go back to see what he was talking about! It looks like it was some kind of burgundy/purple color; not sure if it would have to be a custom job to be that color or not. I'm glad you recognized that Brandon said "Rolls Royce Phantom" as that line is a little hard to make out since he turns away from the camera briefly as he says it.That was brilliant! I noticed the Phantom that passed by the Fiat was in fact purple. Nice.
Thanks!! We knew the audio in the Fiat would be bad, and considered using a wireless lapel mic on Brandon to counteract all the noise, but it ended up being too much of a hassle and like you say, the bad audio in the Fiat adds character and gives a good sense of what it was actually like driving that old thing.Thanks for posting again, after the quality of the trailer a few weeks back I expected you would succeed, as you have, with the film.
You guys are great on camera, I liked the dialog too, the map graphics and the look of the whole thing.
The TG style gags, such as the FIAT?s oil filler cover for example, were both funny and a nice nod to the original.
The audio on the FIAT?s in-car is great, all squeaks and rattles, road noise ? sounds like crap, as it should be for a 70?s Italian car. (aka ?personality?)
Thanks!! I think the guys at Top Gear Australia are really doing a great job and it's very hard to live up to the original UK version so it's quite a compliment to be compared to either.Really impressive so far. The sense of fun is coming through well and the editing is excellent. Well done ...... and as others have said, TGAu could learn a thing or two from your effort.
Haha, thanks! You'll see he's wearing shorts and flip-flops as he is very well-adapted to his environment here in California.Love your "stig"
This is pretty much exactly what I thought when I first saw Top Gear itself.Wow, that's really excellent. Makes me wish I'd thought of doing it, lol...
Definitely. It really helped having all known each other for so damn long. This seems to be the major complaint about Top Gear Australia, and like I said before, while I think those guys are doing a great job with expectations that are nearly impossible to fulfill, I do think this is the one place they are admittedly lacking. After I watched the first episode of TGA, I went back through all the footage I had of my film and added a bunch of stuff in that I hadn't thought to include the first time around to make sure the comradery came through.I loved the first part. You guys have great chemistry, it just goes to show that you can't just grab a bunch of guys and expect them to gel. It takes real time, and that's what you guys have already had.
You guys going to be releasing the whole thing in one file? I'd really like a 1.4GB (or so) standard definition .avi so I can see how good it looks on my TV.
I love HWY 4, that's where I learned how to drive. Sadly no HWY4 footage. We had to keep the distances reasonable between locations. I would love to do another film with a more in depth look at the roads in California, I think there are so many that don't get enough attention. Maybe next film. Anyone want to fund it?Swinging by Highway 4 at all? I have to say, I had a whale of a time on that road.
You just want to be careful on some of the blind corners. The road is very narrow.
