A simple car shoot video rig is ideally compact, lightweight, and easy to use. It’s also hopefully not too expensive. After all, it’s your vision and message that will determine the success of any film more than anything else.
Whatever rig you choose, you don’t really want to compromise much on quality – for the camera, the lens, monitor or the audio mic. Continue reading “”

PORSCHE’S FIRST OVERALL VICTORY AT LE MANS & HANS MEZGER
The 1970 running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans took place 50 years ago on June 13 and 14. Porsche had won first in class before, but their 1970 victory was their first overall Le Mans win.

R.I.P. Hans Mezger, age 90, who passed away today. Hans was one of the most important engine designers ever.
