This video is for those of you that are unaware of Camel Racing. Filmed in high def from Wadi Rum Jordan, this is an opportunity to catch some some behind the scenes footage of an event that you will most likely never witness in person. Camel racing is a popular sport in India, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Bahrain, Jordan, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Oman, Australia, and Mongolia, & these suckers reach speeds of about 40 mph.
This event however is slightly different from the norm when it comes to conventional camel racing. These camels are being radio-controlled, rather then being ridden by jockeys, hence the reason you see vehicles following so closely in the distance.
Take note of the way that these guys choose to slow the camels down, they are crazy!
I recently had a moment to catch up with my good friend Stephane Benini from Clash Productions, to find out what he’s been up to, and what the story was behind this Moby Video he’s been promoting on his facebook page, and this was his initial response…
“So i heard about this challenge on vimeo some times ago, here is the rules: Hello Future Vimeo. I shot the video in the middle east after a shooting at Yas Marina. I had my assistant, Joe, and the guys, Phil, Tom and Alan from CrankandPiston. It was more like a road trip with some great Porsches and friends.
I wanted to shoot at this spectacular place with this old plane, I like the contrast between the Porsches and the plane.
All was shot in about 3 hours and edited yesterday in 1 hour and submitted just before the dead line submission.
You can watch a test camera done with the 964 RS in the desert right here”
My video submitted to the music video contest for Moby is now officialy part of the competition ! Spread the video, share the link – THANKS
I wish him the best of luck and hope that you will help me spread the word about this Video Submission!
I have always been a big fan of street performances, especially the ones that do not have a huge production. You know, the ones that make you stop in your tracks while walking down a city street or some random park where the performers are just so good that you can’t believe their act wasn’t televised, or being picked up by a big-time production company. The ones I’m talking about are the B-Boys breakdancing / freestyling, drums being played on the pots and pans or garbage cans, sometimes it can be as simple as a mime making people laugh or just a random dude juggling balls. These guys have a talent, and their grabbing attention for tip money, or maybe just giving a performance for the sake of just showing off their skills, and not expecting anything in return. It’s those folks that make you realize there are still people out there doing what they love (once again) just for the hell of it, which is a trait that has began to diminish in recent times.
This is the reason why Tim Hahne’s video caught my attention, here they were leaving a shoot fot the new Mercedes R-Class with the intentions of just filming for the city life and trying to capture the essence of NYC. They came across a (“street performer”) drummer in the subway, and decided to remix his music so they could use it for the soundtrack to this video. They titled the video “The Beat of New York,” and without this remixed recorded sequence of drums, I don’t think the essence would have been acquired properly. The video turned out to be great, but the soundtrack provided the “essence.” Therefore providing proof that it’s not only the video giving the viewer pleasure but also laying down the right track in some cases that can be crucial to the signifigance of the subject. In this case that so-called remixed “street performance” made this video authentic NYC material!
Nice job guys, your work is appreciated!
It was a tough competition at the end of 2010 at the Hawaiin Pro, but there could only be one Mrs Reef in 2011!
This is the second installment of a 5 yr series of Mrs Reef Calanders. The calander was shot in Latin America exclusively on the pacific side of Panama. There focus was to capture all of the elements, exotic beach locations, as well as the beautiful mysterious and sensual Miss Reef.
Unit Farm Jam is back with an awesome edit, this time featuring the MTB side of the event. Not only does this video display what went down during the event, but also gives an amazing insight to the incredible scenery that only New Zealand has to offer!
A bird’s eye view of the Ningaloo Reef in Australia via a helmet cam from the pilot of an ultralight, or what they would call a microlight down under! This is called “Surfing the Clouds,” and the scenery is quite amazing, feast your eyes cause this what [HD] is all about.
This video is a prime example of how people that skydive have an amazing advantage of being able to see the landscape from an unrivaled point of view. Especially when that landscape is the incredible city if Dubai. This is footage from The 2011 Dubai International Parachuting Championships! Seems they even fit in some time for off-roading in the desert, which looked like an incredible experience.
