JAG 35 Vs SX Trail

So the Jag 35 came...and obviously it had to be tested!

JAG 35

I ordered a 35mm adaptor over a month ago, and its finaly just arrived.

Looking really good, nice results on the camera, and not toooo bad in low light. Expect to see it being used in some up and coming films.

Working with Red Bull

I headed of to Weston Beach Race to film for Red Bull Reporter.

"Tom Grundy joined the Red Bull Reporter team at Weston Beach Race in Somerset, where he caught on camera all the action from the largest off-road motorcycle event in the UK. Check out Tom’s report to soak up the atmosphere from the event and see the riders battle it out for the title in the Kids 65cc Race and the Adult Quad and Side-Car Race."

 Two photos I took whilst i was there:

A very Late Webisode.

This is Webisode 9, Film around the end of summer.
I had done all the editing for it, and it was just sitting on my computer, so instead of it never coming out, i decided to just throw it out there anyway!

It Features Charlie Collins riding some of his local tracks. And the final round of the KOD.
