Yeah, Rdub - as this shoot was done for "proof of concept" and viewer feedback, as well as to produce something to show the networks we pitch to, it was done relatively "budget" and so we didn't do radios. If we had done that and I'd brought on one more camera operator to take over mine, I could have acted as director and we'd have been a little more proactive about getting other battles shaping up on the track, etc... As it was, I told everyone to basically follow the leader since this was more or less just a sample to demonstrate what we're talking about.

The missing driver's stand camera has yet to get imported - it stores its video on a hard drive and I haven't had a chance to pull that footage in, yet. There will be driver's stand cutaways, though not picture-in-picture because it takes up too much screen real estate. We have to produce for both HD and center cut SD (chopping off the left and right sides for standard definition televisions). Our concept for involving the drivers is similar to putting microphones on NASCAR drivers so you can hear the banter between them and the pit crew - we want to hear and see that stuff. It's a big part of racing and it also serves to establish the "characters" of RC, which is a biggie for us. You do hear some of that early in this race, with the controversy over 2nd place and two computers being used to track the racers.

A lot of the stuff people are saying they want to see is definitely part of our plans, I'm looking forward to being able to put up our fully-produced race and get the feedback from potential viewers, but more importantly, the people who aren't really into RC or know much about it. I've been getting good and constructive comments though, it's appreciated!
you are my new hero!

Looks great. Another good video to check out for some ideas is the 2006 (I think) euros. Its the track that had the massive wall ride. The video quality was not that great, but the coverage was pretty good.
