    Thanks :D

    I wouldn't exactly say that the lighting was excellent or that it represents my best work (I seriously half-assed most of it for the sake of getting all of the shooting done in one afternoon), but it turned out a lot better than expected. The video was shot using a combination of my Canon 70D with an el-cheapo Canon 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM lens (I have nicer wide lenses, but the autofocus motors are too loud to use with a camera mounted shotgun mic), Canon 6D with a Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 DI VC USD lens, and my Nexus 5X phone on a DJI Osmo Mobile gimbal. Editing was done in Adobe Premiere Pro.

    Wow, well done. Thanks again for putting that together, I'll watch for anything you do in the future. Usually I give up watching in the first minute or two but I watched this one until the end!

    How could 5 people disagree that the Dolt is a 16k econobox with a 20k drivetrain. Hilarious!
    And yes I have driven one.
    Get over your hurt feelings if I disagree with YOUR assessment.
