I am currently working on a video for the 2011 Glidden Tour. This event is a car tour that takes place once a year in a different location around the U.S. each fall. The event is for cars manufactured in 1942 or earlier and each driver must be a member of the AACA or the VMCCA. Last year, the tour was based out of Holland, Michigan, and I was selected and hired to be the tour videographer for 2010. This year, the tour was based out of Cumberland, Maryland, and I was once again selected and hired to video the tour. I was thrilled to be hired again, as I very much enjoy the people, the places, and everything we get to experience on the tour. Then I enjoy creating a video for them so that they can relive the events of the tour whenever they like!
This year, there were about 265 cars. The picture above is of one of the cars from this tour. Some of our events of the tour included going to the memorial site of Flight 93, going on a Potamic Eagle train ride where we saw many bald eagles, seeing a gorgeous waterfall in Swallow Falls, going to Nemacolin Resort and Fallingwater. These events, plus many more, were great experiences, and I was able to capture footage from each one. I also captured interviews from the drivers talking about their cars, footage of the cars on the road, footage of their banquets throughout the week, and even some ride along footage. Riding in cars from this era is alot of fun! All in all, I very much enjoyed the tour and hope to continue to be a part of it for years to come.
