THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND YOUR NICE COMMENTS! WE APPRECIATE IT!
It was just my brother and I travelling to the Nürburgring with two cams, four lenses and a tripod on the backseat. Intention was to capture the atmosphere, the tension and the incredible challenge for teams and drivers. Back home, the two of us did all the editing, sound design, color correction and artwork.
The whole thing starts with "Hoppipolla!" by Sigur Ros. Then phenomenal Hecq with "Dayout". I also used "Holler" and "FdK". Hecq is incredible good to cut on and does a lot of sounddesign - check out his page... hecq.de Cinematic Orchestra leads into the night with "Reel Life". I used also Architect with "Fast Lane" and "Pissed in the Morning". Télépopmusik with mellow "Don´t Look Back" for the night. Ben Folds Five "Brick" at 6 A.M. Last track is Gonzales with "The Tourist". Guess that´s it as far as I remember...
Finally got around to finishing this video. It has been forever ago since i was in Japan. Its been about 7 months now. Yeah i have been slacking, but i have been motivated again. Ever since Japan was struck by the Eartquakes etc, I have been working my ass off doing stickers that i am making and doing for charity and then donating all the profits to Red Cross Japan Relief Fund. This really got me motivated to finish my Japan video. I saw pictures of places i had shot that were ruined and i wanted to relive my experience.
Stickers can be ordered here:
ETA: Is about a week or two due to the fact I am doing the stickers myself. Theres a video i previously posted of how i do them! Thank you for the support!
This trip was by far the best i have ever been on. Everything in Japan is just so much different and getting to experience these drivers and watching them tandem so close is unreal. LITERALLY. Ebisu Circuit is awesome, and so are all the drivers and everyone in Japan.
***Also Walker Wilkerson got to drive here. He is in the black hatch with no front bumper on!***
One thing i lacked and had trouble with was a tripod. Next time i will have more gear!!! I ended up using my steadicam as a tripod somewhat
Enjoy the film.
Special Thanks to :
Antonio Alvendia from Motormavens.com

Kumakubo and friends from Ebisu Circuit
and anyone else i forgot.
Thank you so much for letting me come out there and film! I will be back for drift matsuri!!!
