ROOSTER

Drogo Michie is an acclaimed art director. He picked up the gauntlet I chucked on the floor here on the SideBlog last month, challenging
'ad-land types' to produce a feel-good movie inspired by the Deus clips we love so much but centred around the UK short track scene. He is normally off-screen, in the wings; one player in a large team involved in big money commercials. This was his first time behind the lens. No budget and no team (except me as gopher). Suck it and see. BP

Good job.......you captured the mood and atmosphere in the pits perfectly.
Love the sparks from Geoff's steel shoe and the shot of Bully#66 in the wheelbarrow with his dog. What's next, prey tell and when are you coming racing?

Flynn Scott said...

What a brilliant video - great footage of the skooterfarm pits! I was considering doing something similar...

Father Ted said...

nice one Drogo, and you captured Aldana's off which I missed on the night.
How's the XS650 going.

Dr-Ogo said...

Hi Father T,
Thanks mister, the xs is all jolly apart from the front calliper ( even after BP's manly intervention) so as a reward for something I can't remember I'm bidding on a Duccati one tonight ( SBer's please don't bid against me, please)!!

OUTTACONTROLLA said...

Nice and atmospheric video Drogo !
Wish i coulda raced that night , but what a great one to watch tho.
Nicely done dude .

Father Ted said...

Ah yes, xs650 front end, the only thing I've got left to change is the disc! Ducati caliper sounds interesting,

Jeff Wright said...

Brad @ FTWCO said...

Dr-Ogo said...

Big thanks Paul, is that you in one of my favorite shots, the moody nighttime profile shot in the paddock with the Go Pro on your lid?
