Car meetings are held all over the place, and probably daily, if you know where to look. I was on my Facebook, scrolling trough people's posts and commenting on something that spiraled horribly out of control. None of my doing, at least, I don't think so. But I digress.
I somehow came across this meet that was being held in my city of Plano, Texas and thought: You know, I always wanted to know how my little action cam would handle a car meet at night. So I rolled out, and when I arrived I noticed a high import to domestic ratio. People that know me (or follow my channel) are aware that I lean heavily towards domestic cars, even though I am an import myself. But, I do enjoy a good looking import, and would not mind to have some of them in my garage.
Since this was my first time at that particular meet I felt out the mood first. If I get bad vibes from the crowd I usually don't even bother to film. It ruins the artistic vibe. But everyone was very open, and I chatted with the owner of the S2000 a good long while. If people are willing to share their story I am more than willing to share my take of the evening with a video.
When I came home I noticed this edit was going to be a lot different from my regular car shows. First it was night (and luckily my Sony Action Cam did a pretty good job for what it is) and second there where a lot of sounds I usually don't have to deal with. Yes ruckus riders... I mean you guys... :P
So, I decided to use music to replace the regular audio, and attempted to sync the action on screen with the tunes. Even though the video is only 2:20 long it took me 5 hours from start to finish. Matching up the clips to the transitions took the longest.
I think I did alright for a first attempt. I'd love to get your opinions. In case you are local and interested in attending, this meet is a weekly meet located at the Park / Preston intersection in front of the Tom Thumb.
When I was leaving one of the attendees told me there was another meet in town. But that is for another time.
