Here's a playlist of some iceboat videos I've been making recently. (external link)
They all follow the same editing formula: cut regularly on the music, and try to keep other boats in the frame as much as possible.

C&C is always welcome!

This is a video from earlier this winter:

Cool videos looks scary/fun all in the same swoop. I used the second song "Line of Fire" in a video I did not too long ago. Great action track

Nice footage! It would be great to mix in some interviews with some of the drivers (what its like to race ect)?

Absolutely. I'm thinking of ways to "tell the story" more completely. Interviews aren't really my thing (maybe I can find someone else to help with that...), but I'll definitely be shooting more footage from outside the boat/kart and probably adding some time-lapse shots of action throughout an event.

Cheers,

Geoff S.

If you want to minimize the rolling shutter/jello effect that's most noticeable when the camera is off to the side, you can try higher framerates. The faster the camera reads the CMOS, the less jiggle will happen during each frame's exposure.

That was great. If I was shooting something like that I'd also try to get some aerial footage, maybe fly a tethered balloon (or a cluster) with something small like a GoPro attached.

Unfortunately all my current cameras (Hero2 and four SJ-4000s) only shoot 1080p at 30fps.

When the cost of 60fps cameras come down I plan to switch over, but for now I'm happy having more angles to choose from even though it means the quality is lower.

That's a very great low-budget idea! :idea:

With drones all the rage these days, I didn't even think of something simple like that.
I'll have to see if I can work out some kind of stabilization system.

I'm also thinking of mounting a camera on a tall pole (PVC or something similarly inexpensive).
At some parking lots where we sail blokarts there are light poles in the sailing area, I can probably figure out some way to use small-diameter PVC to hold the camera up and against the light pole for good stability.

Sometimes things don't work out as planned...

A few weeks ago one of the new Madison blokart sailors scouted out the roads in the decommissioned Badger Army Ammunition Plant (external link) about 45 minutes northwest of Madison (map (external link))
We started exploratory sailing in the past few weeks and I've attached a couple of short videos from the outings.

The first one is Jim, Scott, and me sailing last Sunday, the second one is from my first sail at Badger and mostly just shows the condition of the main east-west road.

Here's a 56 second video that (I think) captures the reason we sail these silly things...

Here's the longer version from the same outing as above.
I think this one turned out very nicely.

Earlier in the fall a bunch of us drove out to Atlantic City to sail at the dis-used downtown airport, Bader Field.

For two of the days the wind was directly across the runway in the high teens, so the sailing was pretty intense.

This is one of those "location, location, location" kind of videos. I put it together very quickly from one (of four) cameras I had on my blokart.
The only real editing was picking a section of video with some other karts in it, cutting out a couple of boring bits, and adding a catchy tune.

It got picked up by a couple of sailing web-sites and was one of my only 2k+ videos...
