    Default London Prepares

    Not really a video. Just a few clips edited together of the London Surrey Cycle Classic as it passed through Walton-on-Thames and Esher on Sunday 14th August. This was a test run for the Olympics next year...

    I thought the opening was clever Tim.

    And you know - they don' even pay road tax those swiney road closing bicycle bods.

    Anywayyy. Thought it was quite good - put me in mind of those old films that just document what went on years ago. Nice build up, (yes, a clever opening), well paced, good to catch the bobby egging folk on, and loved the closing shot too. I'd hire you. ha!!

    I wish I could say I'd had the foresight to plan it. I'd assumed I'd be closing with shots of the support vehicles receding (as per the ending of the first section) as I wasn't in a position where I could pan around and get a clear following shot of the cyclists. However, everyone assumed it had finished and I was meandering around looking for the odd cutaway, when suddenly we were aware of this group of four stragglers. As they were upon us I could only set to record a following shot and it was a really lucky coincidence that it was on a long straight followed by a turn into oblivion. I just set it and left it, praying to Dawkins that no-one would cross the road until they were out of view. There's a bit of wobble on the shot - I was stupidly holding the handle, but I'm glad I had the presence of mind not to try to follow them with the camera.

    And I'm yours to hire whenever you like!
