Default Offroad Subaru Video

Hey everyone.

So this is something I've been thinking about for a while, so I thought I might pitch it to the forum and see what the level of interest would be for something like this.

I have a fairly strong interest in filmmaking. I would love to spend more time doing it, but unfortunately it is something that takes a huge level of commitment to do properly and it has been a long time since I allowed myself the time to dedicate to a project.

Something that I thought would be a great project to dedicate some time to is an offroad Subaru video. Now I know many of us take video of our trips, but I'm talking about doing something that is kind of on the next level - a polished, well though-out and planned video that has our cars looking awesome. It would almost be like an ad for Subarus, demonstrating the offroad capabilities that so many people doubt.

So what I want to do is get a group of cars (and drivers, of course) together who would be interested in featuring in a video that shows our Subarus off for what they really are and do it in style. With DSLR cameras so readily available these days, it would be a full HD production, properly edited, and I have a friend who would throw together a mean soundtrack for it.

Ideally I'd probably like to spend at least two full weekends shooting it, across a number of different terrains to showcase the versatility of these vehicles.

So basically what this thread is about is seeing who would be interested in spending a bit of time working on a project like this with me. The finished result would be something that would not only find its way onto forums and YouTube but would be festival-worthy material.

So what do you all think? Feel free to prod, poke, criticise and ask questions, because this is the absolute birth of this idea.

Sounds great, I'm keen. We can also have a spread of GoPros on the car at various points as well as external cameras...thinking Ken Block style

Sounds like a great idea!!!

I know you are the one being interested in being the film maker, but, since there are others spread far and wide, what about using other folks footage in the final cut? Might lend to more diversity in vehicles and terrain. Just my little bit of $.02. Either way, I think it's a great idea.

Where are you located Matt? Does this exclude people from other locations?

I was thinking the very same thing after I posted my reply.

So my thoughts on how best to get this done and attract as many people from as many areas as possible:

- I am located in Victoria, so obviously I am keen to co-ordinate shoots in Victoria. If we can get someone from every state who is keen to be sort of a "leader" in organising and collaborating a shoot that would be fantastic, obviously [I]every[I] state is ambitious but it's worth a shot. If we end up with just sort of "regional" groups then that would be good too.

- The scenes that do end up in the final cut would all need to be shot in the same image quality. I'll post what camera and it's associated aspect ratio etc I'll be using shortly so that we have something to work off.

The first thing I really want to do, other than finding out who is on board to be featured in the video, is think about locations. I would like to feature a number of terrains, probably mud, sand, rocks and (if possible) snow, so get thinking about ideas for locations for these folks.

Yeah I am also pretty keen depending on when/other commitments.
If people could only come for one or two days rather than the whole time that would still be of use?

I'd be keen, especially keen for the snow part (if it starts snowing).

For different terrains, WA could feature with their sand, Vic/NSW with rocky tracks, Qld has World Heritage Listed Fraser I, known all over the world, there could be something near Ayers Rock (Uluru), SA has Flinders Ranges. Overseas there are many iconis areas, esp Moab, Utah (but many others as well). Local "leaders" sounds like the best way to manage that...
