FINAL BOUT is a unique drift competition hosted at the Midwest’s premier drift course- USA International Raceway on Labor Day weekend, August 30th and 31st in 2014. Final Bout will begin to rebuild drift culture in North America and move toward a more sustainable model by creating a strong grassroots foundation of teams and organizations throughout the North American continent. To this end, Final Bout will be a team competition that encourages people from all over NA to assemble as teams and fight to bring notoriety to their region.
Last years AutoCon was an impressive turnout of great builds and this time around we got to see the socal represent in full force! I haven't seen such amazing cars in one area for awhile. Liberty Walk GTRs, Widebody FR-Ss, super car exotics, and even a Skyline Hakosuka filled the large Fairplex! Vendors aplenty and models were beautiful as usual. Tons of raffles and awards were presented plus Go-Go dancers giving us a great show!
All in all, it was a great event and I'm glad to have been part of the AutoCon team!
Filmed on two Canon DSLR bodies; 5D Mark III and 6D. An arsenal of lenses combined with my DSLR rig, monopod, slider, and tripod. A lot of gear for one person! I kept it simple with minimal transition effects and no split screening. I like it that way =) Learned a few things shooting this video and will use them in my future features. Also left my battery charger there! x_x
This is my final thesis project. I created info-graphic, motion piece. My objective is to make Japanese people to think about that everything happening here in Japan, isn't that normal. So I created this video from foreigner's point of view, rather than Japanese people's point of view.
Both English and Japanese versions are available.
By the way, please don't call me racist, because I am one of short, small eyes Japanese.
