  1. @motorztv Right in the beginning when the camera is zoomed in and you intro your self and the show and then camera zooms out. Some fancy audio and video work. I like it!

  2. @ctsprague Well thank you. That was a difficult shot to pull off. We had some video issues that were slightly corrected in post, but the audio was incredible… our wireless mic actually sent a clear signal that far away. Jason, my camera guy, was at the top of the motorail escalator platform.

  3. @motorztv I have stood right at that same spot Jason was standing at when he shot this and man that must have been difficult. Wow the wireless mic went that far? May I ask what mic set up you guys use? The audio is sync perfect.

  4. @199jl Tad is awesome… it’s a great segment because as you say, he started with basically nothing and built it up in his 2-car garage, including paint. A great DIY story and perfect for Motorz TV!

  5. @ctsprague Before we did that shot we did some VO down around where I was standing, just in case the audio didn’t carry that far. I was blown away to later find out that it was a clean signal, without any interference. We use Sennheiser EW100 wireless mics and I wouldn’t use anything else!

  6. @microcarmag Thanks Thomas! It was great to have you as part of our big SEMA Show special! Good luck with LoganBuilt and your upcoming projects!

  7. @fordtruck0 There was quite a bit to edit here so it took longer than expected. We’re real happy with the result and can’t wait to do it bigger and better next year. You should definitely try to go… everyone who’s a car nut has to see this event. It’s amazing!

  8. love the step side…..that is another great ideal chris…..it would help me out alot of the front of the bed at times……tho one problem…..got to buy 2….one for each side….ha

  9. Awesome episode. This has me thinking about my friend that’s trying to rebuild a Ranchero all by himself. His car has almost as much rust on the body as the Wagon in the beginning. He want’s to do it all by himself and learn everything. What are the chances an 18 year old with little to no automotive experience getting a sponsor to help him in some way with his restoration project?

  10. @CoDkiller1011 The episode you just commented out came out at the beginning of the month. We have plenty of new episodes in the queue that we’re working on. Thanks for watching!

  11. @olllloJEEPollllo Thank you! It is on TV… some cable, broadcast and 100% satellite TV (DIRECTV Ch 608, DISH Network Ch 240 every Wed night at 10PM Pacific). Check out the Motorz(dot)TV website for more info.
