Our DVDs focus ONLY on traditional rods / kustoms / art
This DVD features:
- Kansas City's best show called the Greaserama put on by Los Punk Rods
- The Cheaters Car Club in Milwaukee has an annual event called Cheaterama - full coverage from that show is included as well as...
- The Voodoo Kings road trip to Cheaterama.
- Bowling Green KY - the Hot Rod Reunion - this gathering brings people from all over the country and there is a bit of nostalgia drags on there as well as the hot rods that came to watch.
-Kobe Japan has one of the best independent bike shows in the world (Triumphs, BSA, old Harleys & Indians etc - no new stuff) - our pal HemiDave was there and got some killer footage - so much that we could not even fit it all on the DVD - the remaining footage will be on the website. For the motorcycle fans we also have a small segment detailing the Davenport Antique Bike Swap.
- Max Grundy recently had a gallery showing at La Luz De Jesus Gallery and we were there to film it and get an interview with him.......he seems to be an articulate, intelligent, funny guy - perhaps he is just a good actor.
- Santa Maria! The big thing that everyone has been asking about IS on here this time.....Santa Maria - formerly known as Paso Robles, event coverage is on here - and it features stuff in the show as well as out on the streets. There is so much going on that weekend it seems no matter where you go there are amazing rides everywhere. Last year saw the inaugural cruise from Santa Maria down to Los Alamos. We have complete coverage of all the hot rods taking over this sleepy little town.........as we left the state rods were heading into town.....seems the locals didnt appreciate the burnouts on Main Street!
- Feature Cars like Kirk Jones MAY CAUSE DANGEROUS - this car is outstanding - Alex Gambino did a lot of the work and he did the interview for us detailing all the work that went into that Starliner. Also is a 60s show rod that had been sitting in a heated garage for 35 years - looks like it just came off of Car Craft cover circa 1961. We interview some kool kats from Kanada about thier kustoms as well as a real hot rod guy - Mark Chapman and his all steel '32 Roadster.
There is SOO much footage on here - oh I almost forgot - Rust Revival is on there as well! We had a tough time trimming the 28 hours of raw video........we got it down to 4 hours. That is a 2 DVD set with 120 minutes on EACH DVD! So you get a ton of footage for a great price. We are excited about this new one and have sent out promo copies for final approval and the response has been GREAT! All the true hot rod enthusiasts will enjoy this and we hope to see you down the road at some show this year. If you see me with a camera in hand - dont shoot - it looks like a gun - but it is actually a camera. (DVD #4 will have more on this!)
If you need wholesale info please let me know.
Thanks John Wells
Trailer for DVD #3 is here:
Please keep in mind that the You Tube quality is very bad - all our filming is done in Hi Def and looks VERY nice when shown on those giant screens.
Vintage Torque - If you are not into it - then you are out of it!
I hope to be able to put up all the different reviews we have received at a later date.
Here is a sample of what people are saying:
I keep popping the dvd in and watching it over and over. I can see why its popular. The variety and amount of content is fantastic. Video from all over!
The video editing was done right. It keeps a good pace. Others have tendency to stay way to long on a shoot. You allow the viewer to want more and not let it get stale. And sound took effort. The mixing wasn't easy.
The camera angles were cool. I liked shots out the car with the pole pod.
I guess if I was pressed to find something it would be lighting. Shooting in to it. Over shadows. But this is the hardest part of shooting. And where you shoot isn't easy to control. And with this subject manner...it is forgiven.
By the way...the dvd organization and layout was done well. And the packaging was professional.
A customer gets a lot for their buck.
