Went to Vasques Rocks this last Saturday to shoot some footage for a little Star Trek spoof, since the location was used for at least one famous episode. Then Sunday, I rode MUni at a local trail with Jeremy, visiting from Mass., and then we went to Venice beach for more fun one-wheeling and Jetty-jumping! (way sandy-slippery on the rocks!) I was very impressed with J’s riding skills!
It was a very fun-filled day of riding, and we both had pinch flats! There’s not a lot of high-flying crazy stuff-we just had a blast and so I’m posting this here since half of it is the Muni-Trek spoof. The parody is really corny, but that’s how I planned it. Right down to the bad wig and cutout “phaser”. And look for a “guest-starring” role by Jeremy!
Watch past the end credits to see us “busted” by the cops!
Haha that’s ok, I got yours! I knew about him putting that thread and even asked him to emphasize leaving comments lol! Seems that helped. I guess it doesn’t really matter which thread the comments go to, as long as I get some, it’s all good! And in just 3 hours since posting it, there’s been nearly 200 views, so that’s pretty decent!
Thanks yeah that place is really used a lot in films.
Thanks.The wig was, of course, a goof on the well-known fact that Shatner wears a toupee. I tried to find one closer to Shat’s, but had no luck, plus, I paid $22 for that wig for a bit that was used once! That’s how devoted I am to making fun videos haha.
Now I need to spend LOTS more on a real editing program and an HD camcorder, so I can make much better picture and sound quality videos.
Haha thanks, I did download one of the really good editing software full trial versions, (I think it was pinnacle) but I could not figure it out! I really need something EASY to use, like movie make has spoiled me because it’s just soooo super easy to use.
awesome video i cant wait to get een nearly that good
for editing you cant get a better combination of easiness to use and lots of effects than adobe premier pro, just use a keygen
you cant pick up adobe premier elements for around $80 if your against keygens though…
Yeah maybe I should buy a mac specifically for movie-making? I hear they are great for that. And yes, I admit it…I’m crazy…for MUni!
Yeah actually that’s the one I downloaded as a full trial version with no limitations. I couldn’t figure out how to use it lol! Maybe I should take a class in video editing and learn from scratch.:o
Thanks so much! I love Star Trek TOS!
Haha thanks yeah Jeremy posted it in the vid section. I had the trek parody half made from the vasquez rocks footage before he arrived in town, and so I was going to try to get a hiker or mtb guy to play the other part. But Jeremy did a great job and I’m glad he did it instead!
