VIDEO: 24 Hours of LeMons – Buttonwillow Histrionic
Shot & edited by Jeff Naeyaert
After weeks of procrastinating and ignoring deadlines, I finally finished my video of the 24 Hours of LeMons: Buttonwillow Histrionics. (Really, I finally reached the point where I said, “fuck it, I give up!” and suddenly, it was finished). I'm new to the video scene and while it's an interesting challenge I'm terribly inefficient at pretty much every aspect of it. I forget to get important shots to help tell the story (a Buttonwillow sign or something at the beginning would have been nice, for example), I hand-hold the camera like my grandma, and I take forever editing, since I don't really know the software. Fortunately, I've met some really helpful people at the Formula D events we've been covering, and looking over their shoulders has taught me a lot.
