I had originally posted these in the Photography section, not realizing that "The Showroom" had an entire separate thread for videos. Oops.

I'm glad you liked it, I definitely wouldn't mind taking some clips of your car for you, or possibly of the two together and making a longer video out of it. The only problem is that we'd probably have to travel. The only place that was nice and empty that I came across in Ballantyne was the MetLife buildings off of Ballantyne Commons. They are all brand new garages and have cool roads, but I am not sure if we would be allowed to film there, seems like they might would be uptight about it. I had filmed these two videos in the parking garage where the 7PM Downtown Euro Meet is.

If you have a place in mind, where people won't bother us, or us bother people, we can try and meet there sometime. I'll have to check out the place before we go, and try to blueprint it out to see what shots should be taken.

Yeah I gotcha. I know the places you mentioned, I'll have to keep an eye out for some good spots. I'm game whenever as long as my car is clean at the time.

Alright, definitely keep me updated if you see good spots.

I would recommend filming in an area with better light, during the day actually. I dont know what you are shooting with but your camera isnt good enough to capture at night like that and neither is my T3i, once you get into MK II and up is when those cameras can shoot at a low enough iso to capture footage while remaining quality. It was hard to tell what your angle was to these videos. Is it supposed to be a story of you driving around or showcasing your car? There werent enough shots of the car, just slight angles of it. The shots were to long, as in, 8 second clips arent the greatest if there is no real action to be displayed. Try focusing on the car as a whole and how to frame the car properly. Repeated clips are also annoying to watch, like the turning on of the headlights in two back to back clips in the first video.

Im not trying to be mean but more so give you constructive criticism to move you in the right direction. If you are serious about becoming better at videography I suggest going on youtube and watching a bunch of peoples car videos to give you a better idea and understanding of something that is visually appealing and enjoyable to watch.

I commend your efforts to try something new. Every master was once a beginner

Here is something I HIGHLY recommend if you want to continue in videography. This is from my friends website, its very cheap and very basic but the results are astounding.

Here is the link to his site and to the page of how to make one for yourself

DIY Camera Slider

The results:

I appreciate the reply. I was going more for a short video on the details of the car, the simple things that I see in it that I feel makes it sexy. I'll try some of your tips and I actually did want a roller, for smooth camera clips.

I had watched that film on Vimeo of the M3 "Snow White" and it's what made me want to try making a short video. I'll try shooting more in the day, but it's harder to find empty areas where people will leave you alone.

Any more advice you may recommend?
