Don't know if it is! Yet..

I am unsure how financially I am going to be when I go to uni, so coilovers, then occasional polybushes, spacers, then a set up. All over the next year or so, then if I can afford it i'll get it out there, if not it'll be in my placement year or something when i'm earning.

But atm, I want a set of these:

And the general tidying up of the car etc.

Unless you do a curborough I doubt it'll see a track properly bar Ford fair really

From the moment I picked up your book until I laid it down, I was convulsed with laughter. Some day I intend reading it.

Rig > Camera > Picture > Photoshop > Done.

Just going to copy this from somewhere else I've already written it, teehee.

Rig shots are quite simple really, basically there is the rig - which uses aluminium tubes, or carbon fibre depending how much cash you have to spend, also suction cups and mounting equipment for the camera...

You then attach the gear to the car and place it in the position you want the shot to be taken from.. like so:

http://www.photozo.com/article/wp-conte ... 1/rig9.jpg

http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a351/ ... 88daba.jpg

Then there are two ways to take the picture:

1) take a still picture of the car to get everything really crisp and sharp on the car, then take moving picture
2) take moving picture and work with that.

Either way you need to take a moving picture to get background blur, so you set up the camera - either on manual or time variable, use an ND filter for day time shots - the darker the filter, the longer the shutter speed and that means more blur, too much blur can look crap though imo.. Then set a timer on the camera and push the car at walking speed making sure your not in the picture, then you photoshop out the rig and it's all done :)

No the camera just floats by magic. I think fairies hold it up or some shit like that :)
