A while back, I sold raw uncut footage from shoots that were never edited or released as videos. They were pretty popular, but it became apparent quickly that the majority of people who bought them were unimpressed and/or disappointed by what they got. Not sure what the expectation was, but It seems some of you didn’t read the description and/or failed to understand what raw footage is.
Raw footage is footage that comes right off the cameras. it includes all the stuff you don’t see in the final video, including talking and boring stuff between the director and model. What’s more important tho, is that raw footage is made up of many separate clips that have to be put together like puzzles to create a coherent sequence or story. This is especially true of Brake failure which is not real and entirely faked through camera work and editing. This is usually done by someone skilled in video editing software and that has an understanding of storytelling. when you see a final video, ALOT of work has gone into making it watchable and enjoyable.
When filming, it’s always best to shoot MORE footage than necessary ..this makes choosing which shots go where much much easier. But this means that quite often, some good PP action can be cut and does not make it into the final video. Other times, there wasn’t much footage to begin with or the model’s performance was lackluster. In those cases, it may be necessary to do some clever re-using, re-timing, and repeating of shots to make the final video longer and/or more enjoyable. This is all about a typical part of filmmaking and video production.
I stopped selling the raw footage because it was very difficult to explain and I got too many complaints. On top of all that, the footage was expensive and very large. This made them difficult to host and serve. In the end, I felt that continuing to sell the footage was doing a disservice to the customer.
However, because I don’t want good pedal pumping to go to waste and never be seen, I decided to bring the raw footage back in a new form. PEDL SHOTS ONLY.
Now you will be able to buy uncut pedal shots…
If you have the skill, you can use this to make your own edits but it will be limited since it will not include face shots or road shots or anything else. They also may or may not contain talking and banter between myself and the actresses. That said, I’m doing this primarily for those who just want to see PP and don’t care about acting and face shots. and if people like to play with uncut footage too that’s a bonus.
The downloads are all the uncut PP shots straight from the camera strung together in one long clip.
They will generally be priced less than a final video and much much less than the FULL uncut footage that I used to sell.
For those who still don’t understand….. let me make it clear. these Raw clips are NOT completed videos. They are not BFs or Cranking clips shot all at once. They are basically extended behind the scenes of the model’s feet pushing pedals (and maybe some extra shots of hands turning the key or pulling the e-brake )
