Title: American Triple-T Race Recap 2014
Client: HFP Racing
Location: Shawnee State Forest, Southern Ohio


The second time around for the Triple-T was a ton of fun. After the crazy adventure of the first year, I came back with a better idea of what I was getting into and what I needed to do. In addition, I had a few new tricks up my sleeve. The first was that I switched from shooting with my tape-based HDV camera to a DSLR. I rented a Nikon D800 from Lensrentals.com and used that as my primary camera throughout the weekend. I also added a GoPro as a secondary camera which allowed me to get some pretty great shots of the racers in motion. One of my favorite shots was when I put the GoPro on the back of my car and paced near a racer. I also added a camera slider to give me a variety of camera moves I wasn’t able to achieve previously. Instead of going with a standard one on rails, I decided to go with the CineMover which is more a mini dolly than a slider. The cool thing with the CineMover is that you can use it on anything that is flat so I brought a metal sawhorse and a piece of vinyl  fence post to use for the sliding moves. Between the two I was able to capture higher and lower moves. Having the Cinemover added a lot to the impact of the video.
