Thanks everyone! It's great to be back, and even better to see all the appreciation!
For this set, we're ditching the EDM for a set, and going into some RnB/Rap.
Ant introduced me to Frank Ocean a while ago and I got hooked on his music, not to mention a good majority of his songs
have car references, and the fact that he's a major gearhead helped too.
So I wanted to do a set to match his first release, Nostalgia, Ultra, which features a bright orange E30 M3 on the cover.
Seeing as there's no E30, I made my own Hybrid E46, Stanced it, and gave it M5 power,
and took it to Kyoto/Eiger for the shots to best suit each song.
Some of the songs have some explicit lyrics, so you've been warned.
Really nice pictures, Metal Gear Solid is my favoutire, excellent. There will be tears is also brilliant, efficient editing path, a pleasure to watch. I'm curious and listened the music, not my taste, no worries we all have our own musical way
Thanks again everyone Wasn't sure how well it'd go over but good to see it did!
As for the lack of updates, I'm planning a couple sets, one is quite massive, and this one took a lot of time as well.
I'm a gigantic M Machine fan, ever since I heard about Metropolis Remixed, a set instantly came to mind.
A custom Luma MP4-12C tearing around the Nurburgring. But I wanted it to be more epic, and more detailed.
So they were all shot at 8MP and heavily edited to bring out every bit of awesome possible.
The end of the night, the engine cools, the track is quiet and the night sky is glowing.
Head in? Another Lap?
Well I wanna know, where do we go from here?
Ghosts In The Machine
The tires shredding around Steilstrecke, the V8 fires out a flash of flames. Its just the Ghosts In the Machine.
A King Alone
What better than a sunny day and open straight to let Luma run. Its everything I need when Im alone.
The information hub letting you know as you attack the Karussell, the high beams bright, sending signals in the dark.
And here I go again, Another stretch of asphalt to let Luma sing, the empty forest alive with redlining.
Luma attacks a curb much more violently than planned, the car jumps, its that second of fear striking, its terror but sheer enjoyment.
You can hide inside your head, but either outcome, its happening.
Shadow In The Rose Garden
The Suns setting, the light fading, the clouds align in beautiful art, but whats to come of the darkness?
I cannot be sure I see the future.
So we found our self in a new place.
The car shifts side to side as rockets down the hill into the upcoming climb, its a new land,
but it feels like weve never left home.
The light is gone. Its Black. The only thing illuminating your path is the hi-beams.
Its all or nothing on Dottinger. Peg the limiter, drop the clutch.
Youre almost at the end.
What an interesting set full of flash and effects but for the most part they work very well.
Regardless of that there is some very nice solid shots with nice compositions in there. Always good to have a good base to work off.
Really like some of the colours and treatments on these. My fav out of the bunch are Ghosts In The Machine, Tiny Anthem & Black is just awesome.
Very nice expressive and creative set, plus the graphic design elements are added well to boot.
Magnificent set Garrett!
I love how well you've matched each shot to the title and narative - especially Data Palace is this regard.
As George said the base shots themselves are very solid and your expertise in editing and effects has truly pulled out the awesomeness in each one. Can't really pick a favourite, there are all amazing.
What an utterly sublime set, a bit heavy on one or two shots,but your editing is just on another level to most of us here,can't wait for the next set.Agreed about the M Machine Data Palace especially has been my most played song this week
