Day 3. As rainy as day 2  >:D (Or maybe 'as stormy' )

Finally in Orania. What a beautiful little place. And not to talk about the campsite.  I will make a short video just about the campsite next.




Now I need to get back home. (Two more video's)

Dankie.

Dit was eintlik een MOESSE lekker trip.  Die reen, modder ens het dit onvergeetlik gemaak.  Ek sal nou seker lank wag voor ek weer so iets beleef.  :'(

Ok, DAY 4 returning back to Cape Town from Orania.

The original plan, no the ORIGINAL original plan was to go west from Orania towards Pela via van Zylsrus.  This leg had to be cut out due to the fact that I stayed much longer at the plant to complete some extra work and the ankle,  It was quite a mission the get the boot over the swollen foot.

The revised trip was zig zagging back to Cape Town via vic West, Fraserburg, Middelpos and Tankwa Karoo.  This included a surprise meetup with my friends at Bike X to surprise Michelle.  Due to delays Friday I only left Orania after 1 pm for Fraserburg  on the planned 460km all gravel stretch.  As this was not a race I decided to sleep in Vic West and then leave early (net na die mossies gepoep het) to make up some time.  A nice relaxed evening in Vic West was good for body and soul.

The road for the day was typical Karoo, flat and fast with an average moving speed of almost 90kph.




enjoy

Nope, ek het na duisende rande op gimbals ens ens gevind my beproefde 'vryhand' is maar die beste vir the styl wat ek wil bereik.  Ek het wel op dag 2 of 3 die kamera op die helmet gehad.  Dit is maar net te beperkend.
Kyk her vir al die probeerslae met montering. http://www.wilddog.za.net/forum/index.php?topic=226149.240

Gelukkig is ek moesse onverantwoordelik so dit mla my nie meer om eenhand the ry.  >:D  (too late to 'Die Young' )

Day 5. Vic West to Bike X Tankwa.

I did split this leg into two videos to make it more manageable etc.  Although it was 4 days after the rains there was still lots of water in the road.  As there was nothing high to mount the camera to I could not video some of the real hectic crossings.  I will have to carry a light tripod of some sorts with in the future.

sneaking through the Gantou service road off N2 just over Sir lowry's pass coming out either in Grabouw or you could carry on to ontop of Viljoenshoop pass is pretty sad looking  with  rubish dumps and filth from squatter camps

Ok, for those that do not follow my technical thread.





This video was done with Filmora.  Not as powerful as DaVinci but MUCH easier and faster due to less resource requirements.

It is a big job to make a Karoo trip interesting.

Namibia trip Day 2.

Had to visit Midas in Upington for another Bosch pump.  Hopefully this will be the last one as I replaced the controller that was periodically acting up. Just in case Ill carry a spare under the seat as these pumps do not like to run at full pressure for more than 400km.

Dankie vir die kykstof. het almal aanmekaar gelas so nou het ons amper n regte adventure movie, waarna ons movie aande kan kyk, aangesien ons nie eintlik tv kan kyk nie. wag al lank vir so iets. die kinders geniet dit ook, net hier en daar verloor hulle bietjie die draad van die storie as jy skielik op n ander plek ry 8)

Dankie vir die terugvoer.  My hoof idee met die videos is om die kyker die land en omgewing te wys. Dit is nogal 'n issue om iets interressant te maak van die Karoo of Namibia as dit net droŽ aarde is.  Ek is nog opsoek na 'n ideale 'formaat'.  Een ding is seker, ek wil nie myself afneem terwyl ek meestal net praat nie.  Ek het wel agter gekom ek sal dit bietjie moet doen om meer 'diepte' te gee.

Gee so bietjie meer ('n voorbeeld byv Video xx op 2:25) waar die kinners die 'spoor verloor' sodat ek daaraan kan werk.  Een van my besluite was om nie die 'pratery' perfek te probeer kry met oor en oor opnames.  Ek moet egter daaraan werk want noem partykeer sommer verkeerde dorpnaam, pas of winkel.  Soms stop die sin sommer net want ek het verkeerd gepraat.  Lag partykeer lekker as ek die woorde so opmors. (Spreek altyd Tankwa snaaks uit.  :xxbah: )

Dankie in elk geval.  Ek geniet altyd kretiek want dit kan net die produk verbeter as dit by die 'tema' inpas.

In my search to give better content I tried something new in this episode. Still need to do a lot of work around the voice over.  :-[  But as I always said, if it was easy everyone would do it.

Any feedback is welcome.



** Edit **
Looking at it again on the big screen I did notice the fading from scene to scene was actually getting annoying.  Will have to look at other options as well.

I do not like watching bike tour videos as it's almost inevitably a long road being filmed.  Your last video is a bit of an exception, as quite a few things are added to hold the viewers attention, like the

aerial town shots, and ifo pieces.  The way you talk on the video also, for me, holds a bit of attraction. It is not the often found polished and smooth pro voice-over, but . a geniune one.
