Do you want to know how I've filmed the Ragit TRAX Silverstone 2021 stand? Yup. Same here - Here's how I've filmed the Ragit TRAX stand.
Before I Filmed Ragit
After filming the Pumaspeed stand, I wanted to film and photograph at another eye-catching stand. I noticed a Subaru Forester STi and said to Jonny, "let's film at Ragit." Jonny said, "sure!"
I asked the members, "please can I film your stand because I like the variety of cars?" They said, "sure."
How I Filmed Ragit
I started by filming the Subaru Forester to the headlight of the Ford S-Max. We had Bluetooth sync issues with the Edelkrone video rig due to not paring the equipment on my phone.
But, I had to find a workaround. My first idea was to use fewer steps on the Edelkrone app, which didn't work. What to do now? I had to slow down the speed and flow of the JibOne to perform a smooth pan of the S-Max to the Subaru Impreza Estate.
Whilst I photographed the ultra-rare Audi RS6 Avant V10, Jonny moved to the Subaru Impreza WRX Sti for an engine bay scene. The engine bay looked pristine. Then Jonny moved to the Subaru Impreza WRX GB270 engine bay to film an up and down scene of the Subie.
How I Edited The Ragit TRAX Silverstone Stand
I opened Premiere Pro and selected my TRAX Silverstone folder. Next, I chose the Ragit club stand scenes and organised the clips to flow into each other.
I started by trimming a scene of the Forester STi to the S-Max because it established the club well. The clip was the engine bay shot of the Impreza GB270; I shorted the scene and cut the scene in half for a smooth crane scene of the Subaru.
Next, I chose an establishing scene of the Ford S-Max to the Subaru Impreza Estate. I slimed the unnecessary part of the clip, but I had to splice the scene to make the video snappier.
Then I continued from the Ford Fiesta to the Impreza Estate to make the clip snappier (also to remove the Edelkrone Jibone blip).
For the ending scene of the TRAX Silverstone video, I ended with a crane shot of the Subaru Impreza WRX STi to showcase the pristine engine bay and to end on a high note.
Next, I applied a colour grading preset to give the clips a warm summery vibe and signature. I didn't know how the grass popped throughout the video, so I searched for a video on using selective colour to look more akin to my photos. It's worth the time!
Then I applied transitions to make the clips to make the video more engaging and warp stabilisation to make the film smoother. Indeed!
Do you agree with the statement; the more, the merrier? No. Not all the time - But the Ragit stand has a mix of imports, super estates and zesty hatches - More is More.
