At the 2010 SEMA Show our crew not only was busy shooting video for the 2010 SEMA Show episode, but also covering some press events. There’s the AMP Research press conference, an upcoming video for Kelderman Mfg and Rampage Jackson, and then there’s this one we produced for our newest sponsor of the show, E3 Spark Plugs.

Robert Stout has been racing for some time now and has had some incredible success, attracting big sponsors such as Lucas Oil and E3. This video does a great job capturing Robert’s success, followed by an interview at the E3 Spark Plugs booth at last year’s SEMA Show.

Outside of the racing coverage at the beginning (provided by the Internal Combustion Group, but was edited by us) and some awesome graphics provided by Martin & Company (who represents E3 Spark Plugs), the rest of it was all done in-house here at Duke Networks.

SEMA Show 2010I know the dust has barely settled from the SEMA Show a few weeks ago, but I’m excited to announce that I am partnering again with eBay Motors to host live installs again at the SEMA Show in 2010!

Next year there will be some huge improvements, now that we’ve got our feet wet this year.  2010’s show will be bigger and better!

Much thanks to Famous and Henry at eBay Motors for all of their support at this past SEMA Show to make it such a huge success, and for believing in me and my show enough to do it again!  I had a blast doing the installs in front of a live audience, and I can’t wait to do it all over again next year!

MOTORZ TV presents the sights and sounds of the Ford Motor Company booth being set up on Monday, November 2nd, 2009 in Las Vegas. MOTORZ TV held live installs in a booth (22299) adjacent to Ford throughout the week. While we were setting up, we shot some video of Ford setting up their booth as well.

Watch Live Nov 3-5 2009: SEMA Webcam

A week ago I announced that I’ll be hosting live installs at this years SEMA Show on behalf of eBay Motors at the Ford Motor Company booth.  It’s actually booth #22299 which is a large 20’x55′ space adjacent to the Ford booth.  The booth will house four 2010 Ford vehicles, and I’ll be there with my Motorz TV crew installing aftermarket products on those vehicles for 3 days!

If you can’t make it to the SEMA Show this year, then you’re in luck!  We’ll be streaming live video (with audio) the entire time we’re on the show floor, right to your computer.  So not only will you be able to see what we’re doing, but you’ll also be able to see a bit of the SEMA Show!  All you’ll need to do is to go to www.motorz.tv and there will be a link right  on the home page to watch the live webcam stream!

This webcam event wouldn’t be possible without the great people at AMP Research, Truck Covers USA, and ACI (Agri-Cover, Inc.) so be sure to check out their sites and their products–and buy them too!
