The Band-wagon

Cadwell Park in England is probably most famous for 'the Mountain', where bikes frequently get airbourne, and it's the striking mix of twists, cambers and gradients that have led to the circuit's burgeoning popularity over the years. A real mecca for bike fans. I cut this promo for British Eurosport on location using Avid Symphony 6. The hi motion cameras captured the main action at 1000 frames per second. I used my Sony FS700 for the additional slow motion shots. Enjoy!

The sony 18-200 kit lens was ideal for this project. From capturing the slow motion petrol on the wide angle to being able to grab a face in the crowd on the 200mm side.

On the editing side of things, I used my Avid Symphony running on a Mac book pro. No transcoding of the footage was necessary, realtime capture and playback into the OB truck.
