So after a recent trip to a go-karting venue for a mates birthday I had the idea of asking them if they'd be happy for me to make a promo video for them. I'm doing it for free, for experience for myself (and some free time on the track) and they get a promo video at the end of it. Like an action short, movie style, you know.
Can anyone offer any advice on ways to shoot and camera settings etc. I have a mount for the camera to attach to the karts. We'll be staging manouvers in order to repeat with the camera attached to different karts etc. But I'm really concerned about the focus, it's not going to be possible to adjust when moving and I don't want to trust auto-focus.
I've got lots of ideas for other shots, I've borrowed a dolly / crane rig which should provide some cool fly-bys.
Does anyone have any experience with this sort of shoot and could provide any handy tips?
I'm using a Sony A1-E.
