I am supposed to go in and try to finalise the above mentioned film in 12 hours.
Am having an ongoing debate with the editor (who has made, filmed, edited countless travel documentaries) about the type of footage.
He comes from a professional film making background and wants to keep it tight. That means it flows better, is more straight to the point, shorter clips, high quality clips, lots of little features along the way. And thats what we basically have now.
I agree that will indeed be better for the uninitiated ... to give them a rich flavour of the trip. But part of me also thinks the 'already into adventure motorcycling' crowd (you lot) will want maximum footage of the interesting riding bits ... even if that footage is lesser quality, taken by photo cameras on movie setting, sound less than ideal etc ... stitch together as much funky footage together as logic allows.
Any quick thoughts before I finalise this thing?
