VIDEO:  24 Hours of LeMons - Buttonwillow Histrionic

Shot & edited by Jeff Naeyaert

After weeks of procrastinating and ignoring deadlines, I finally finished my video of the  24 Hours of LeMons: Buttonwillow Histrionics. (Really, I finally reached the point where I said, "fuck it, I give up!" and suddenly, it was finished).  I'm new to the video scene and while it's an interesting challenge I'm terribly inefficient at pretty much every aspect of it.  I forget to get important shots to help tell the story (a Buttonwillow sign or something at the beginning would have been nice, for example), I hand-hold the camera like my grandma, and I take forever editing, since I don't really know the software.  Fortunately, I've met some really helpful people at the Formula D events we've been covering, and looking over their shoulders has taught me a lot.

Disclaimer finished, enjoy!  If you want to see the HD version, check it out on Vimeo.  And, in case you missed it, click HERE or on the picture below for the article and PHOTOS from the event.

Right around 1:54 there's a $0.99 squeegee bouncing across the track. That used to be zip tied to our Molly Maid Miata, but it showed up missing at one of our pit stops. I thought you actually managed to capture the thing falling off the car, but if you freeze frame, you can see the squeegee bouncing IN FRONT of our car!

Looks like we dropped it earlier, an the car in front of us runs over it, laps later, and kicks it back at us. What are the odds?

I was wondering what that was! I thought it was a rearview mirror... I let that scene run long just because of that thing! :)
