i often search for cars for filmshoots on gumtree, when you have exhausted the clubs...or the car is very specific....i just think R2000 is a little bit stingey....and normally in film the clutches gives in on the scooters we use, with all the stop and go , cut, 1st position nonsense.....so make sure its a shoot were your bike is not driven by someone else....just parked.i would not let my house or my bike out for a shoot.

Agree, when they filmed me for a journal program I rode up and down for aboutt 4 hours and only 2 min of footage was used.

I did a shoot in January for the Royal Bank of Scotalnd from 05h00 till 19h30 riding a "harley" and all they used was approx. 15 seconds , was paid well though  ;)

A mate of mine had an olde time Land Cruiser (the one where the front looks like a jeep) ...was going, but farked. He bought it as a project to restore.

"They" used it as is, and paid him more for a weeks use than what he paid for it initially, made a bit of money. Also, with his permission, they painted it khaki, got some more mnoolah for that, and he was going to respray the thing in any case.

They used one of my bro-in law's 40YO Vespas for the Peroni add. I dont know how much they paid for the "hire", but they paid him extra so they can get it painted as well!

i once searched the country for a 1960 convertable concourse white seat lefthand steer e type jaguar for a Embassey lights ad ....i found three....the chef at the hyatt in rosebank had one....i insured it, loaded it on a trailer, took it down Longtom pass....slightly dented a door...and payed him R12000 for it. That was 14 years ago.  it depends how badly we want something, for the price to be really high...

You usually dont get paid for a journal type shoot. All my shoots was journals.

The moolah are in advertes etc.

I checked this Grantham Solomons out on our systems. He does exist and it seems that he is self employed and running a one man show as i do not pick up any employment details from 2008 onwards. He used to work for Renault Somerset West. :-\

I'd be careful about dishing out too much personal details on a public forum though. Not saying you have...just saying. :thumleft:
