Thumbs down

Ignoring the "epic" hyperbole, "Icy Hot Stuntaz" impression in the beginning, the crappy music, lame photo pans, boring subject matter and ADD video cuts, I'm left with reckless driving, street racing and driving to endanger.

Can't wait to see more...

Relax neighborhood watch, what parts was he driving like an idiot? Last clip could be questionable but with a gopro so low to the ground it makes it look faster than it really is. You dont like how someone drives so you bash their video editing skills? (my comment was about video editing not driving)

Stop drinking the haterade...

Thanks P7X for the comments and support. Much appreciated. That GOpro on the last clip was mounted right on that lower lip of the front bumper, I just love that shot.

Hey I just put together the video and record myself driving because it's something that I just enjoy doing. I posted it here on a strictly based 1 Series website so I didn't have hear negative comments and people bashing me about either my car or the footage... I thought everyone on this website just loves BMW and the 135i. The video was just something for everyone to enjoy. To any fellow 1Addicts: If the video was a waster of your time I apologize and I'll make sure to only show the video's on request.

Thanks everyone else for the support! SGT. Kennedy, Ian H.

I like BMW, I like 135i's. I like GoPro (own 3) and enjoy car videos a lot. So sure, I like me an "epic" car video. What made me pretty ticked off about your video is the driving... You show "wtf" moments on your own Youtube channel but then you post this. Weaving through traffic at 20/30+ the speed of traffic flow, racing your buddies Mustang/BMW (?) is just not smart.

This just happened here in my neck of the woods:
http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2012/...e-route-52/?ap

Maybe you'll understand why I might not have a lot of tolerance for driving like in your video currently.

Also the last segment. I love roads like that and routinely drive them in a spirited fashion. But even at night there's just no reason to cross the double yellows like this is a race track. Don't care how you edit that video, that's just bad driving.

Thanks for your service!
Just don't drive like that, plz :P

Some more constructive criticism about the video:
- Instead of the photo pans, build yourself a cheap dolly. That can be as simple as taking a skateboard and mounting the GoPro on it, then pulling the board with a string slowly. Also works great with the time-lapse feature of the GoPro.

Here's what dolly footage looks like (not my videos):


Also, a cool trick is using an egg timer for timelapses.
Example:


Howto:


- The white balance jumps all over the place between clips. You might be able to tweak that a little in post production.

- Also, throw out those shots where the suction cup shows.

Sure sure, hater, grandpa, call me whatever you like.
Just don't drive like that on my roads.

You want to have fun? Me too! Though I take it to the track and don't drive like that on public roads. That simple.

i hate int2str, I also hated kennedyINF's video but understand his motivations and don't judge him for posting lameness. If my opinion was wanted (I don't suspect it is but oh well!), lose everything before the 2:10 mark, remove commercial dubstep (there is respectable dubstep out there if you look), move the camera up higher and find better roads.

An example, this is a shit video my friends made a long ass time ago... The quality is absolutely horrible, but it's still fun to watch because it's all about the cars and driving, no BS.
