Gnarcolepsy - VT Wake
 
So, I'm sure a few of you remember Gauntlet, and the follow up video we were making here at Virginia Tech called Gnarcolepsy. Well, Edan Fletcher (the other film guy in the club) and I decided that due to the high costs and obscene amounts of stress that come with creating a DVD, to repurpose the Gnarcolepsy idea into a blog for Virginia Tech Wakeboarding that was posted up here a little while ago so that you could follow us at nationals.

Anyways, the real purpose behind the blog is to make videos of the riders that are up to date, since all of the guys we were filming for Gnarcolepsy were either impossible to film enough to have a bunch of solid footage due to budget limitations on travel, or they were progressing too much to keep the riding footage up to date. Anyways, the footage from last year that was being used for Gnarcolepsy is being edited up now and put onto the blog. A bunch of these guys actually weren't from VT, but on account of the fact that they're friends with all of the VT guys, they get filmed too.

So anyways, without further ado and boring you, check out the 3 videos I've put together of these riders at Gnarcolepsy!

Or alternatively, I could throw them up on here embedded, but I figure you'll want the actual blog link instead so that if you do find them enjoyable, you can keep on checking it out from time to time.

The footage clearly isn't of Norbi quality (it seems like his vids are the only ones showing up here these days, so it's nerve wracking trying to decide if this stuff is worthwhile posting, haha. YOU HEAR THAT NORBI, YOU'RE INTIMIDATING. Lol, jk dude), and some of it can get shaky (in part due to me not being able to keep my tiny camera super steady and also because of sometimes crappy water conditions and long distance chaseboat shots that had to be zoomed in) since I was stretching to find enough different tricks to keep the video's fresh and not a bunch of repeats. Also, we could not get good weather for filming last year for the life of us, it was annoying.

So once again, enjoy Gnarcolepsy.

(Dave, sorry if you don't want blogs promoted on this site like this. If you want anything changed to fit with rules better or something, just let me know! Or you could kill the thread yourself, haha.)

eh, on second thought, might as well postem here. I can't edit the last post so here's a double post. (btw, 116 Films is nothing more than a crew of amateur wakeboard videographers and photographers in the area and isn't an actual company!)

Looking Good. You guys have some nice boats and great riding.

deltarida 04-22-2010 12:25 PM

Sweet vid and riding guys...keep doin your thang!

Are you going to make something for the new producer contest? I think you could be a real contender Nick. Keep up the good work :)

wakeboardern1 04-24-2010 1:28 AM

Haha, John, that's funny. I'm going to enter it, but I don't expect to even come close to the top. There are a lot of really sick editors and filmers out there that you just don't see video's from. However, I actually already have a band ready to sign the forms to let me use their music, now I just have to spend the summer pulling together the footage that looks good. It's hard to get good footage when your camera is broken and you can't do anything but set it to manual and let it do it's thing. I'd like to think I have a chance in that contest, but I'm not so sure I really do, just because my filming is pretty weak.

Just do it for funnizes Nick! That's what I'm going to do. If you want to use any Algebraic Satellite again. let me know!

waterdork88 04-24-2010 1:41 PM

Bro, I agree there are some very good producers on here and I think you're very humble. Even though I'm entering the contest aswell, a part of me is hoping you take the win. Good luck man and I can't wait to see your entry aswell as Gnarcolepsy :)

wakeboardern1 04-25-2010 7:08 PM

Haha, thanks Nick and John. Nick, I may hit you up for a song sometime over the summer when I'm just putting together videos for the blog. Snakeosaurus Rex, a band that helped out with the music on Gauntlet that I'm still in contact with is giving me permission to use any of their music, and I have a song picked out. Now I just need the footy, haha.

John, thanks, just keep an eye on that blog. I'll try to keep the quality of it all up, but I don't know if it'll stay on par with the videos above, especially since I'll be saving my best footage for the contest. That's a lot of footage I used for those, up there though, soooo yeahhh. I plan on filming with Sam Baker a few times this summer, which means some trips to Wilmington, and hopefully I can get up to the NJ Wakefest this year as well and get some footage of people up there.
