My latest 135i video (this one's pretty decent!)

Set it to 720p to see the HD version.



Same video on Vimeo:

Wow nice video. I'm one for seeing action but the music calmed the mood and enjoyed watching it. Beautiful car.

That was a great video. Incredibly well done! Also, your car is beautiful. Probably my favorite one on here. I always enjoy looking at your new pictures and videos of your car!


A couple questions about the car: are your taillights or headlights modified at all? It may be the angle or lighting, but they look darker than the ones on my BSM 135. Also, is that the BMW Performance Rear Diffusor? It looked really good.

I would have if there was someone to drive while I manned the camera. One of these days I'll do one with the car in motion. I just need more people with the patience to help out.

The tail/headlights are unmodified. It's the color grading that makes them look darker. And yea, it's the Performance diffuser.

Thanks for the comments. I'm surprised no one mentioned the camera shake some scenes. I guess it's just to be nice.

heh. i was about to. ;]

couple tips, bro: when you cut to a closeup of the same/similar move, don't overlap. i.e.: you have a slide of the front left quarter, when you cut to the closeup shot of the same quarter panel, you pick up where you've already started - you just show the same thing closer. not that interesting. noticed that a lot through out. cut to where you left off, don't backup and overlap the same thing. just a little tip for the future.
and it's too long, only because it's the same type of stuff. under a minute is a good target.

just be smooth with the slides. do as many takes as you need to to get a smooth slide/good shot. it may rock on the beginning and end of the slide, but just cut around that - use the middle portion of the slide. try pressing down on all four corners of the carriage to keep it from catching and tipping/rocking.

cheers and cheerios.

Thanks for the tips! It's going to take awhile before I have an eye for the details. Your comments are very helpful. Also, I did set in and out points to cut out where the slides end, but I'm still learning Final Cut and transitions tend to add some of that back in. I know how I'm supposed to fix it, but not knowing the app well makes it hard.

When are we going to see a video of your car? See how the pros do it. Maybe shot on RED?
