The last two weeks have been all over the place for work. Some extreme highs followed by extreme lows. This post might be a little all over the place, but here goes:
Florida! On January 31st I flew down to Florida to film a record-breaking 15 cars in three days! It started with one of the highest highs I've experienced. It was 70 degrees and sunny, I was filming some awesome and rare cars, and I felt great. I'm excited for you to see those videos, which will be posted over the next two months to not bombard you with just Florida content. This however was followed by a low. On the 2nd to last night of my trip, I went back to check some audio files. Flat. It turns out my microphone tore a wire and broke halfway through the FIRST CAR I filmed. Luckily I had some GoPro audio and some voice over, but if the Florida videos have funky audio - that's why.
The Chicago Auto Show! Once I got home it was time for the auto show. This was my first year attending as a part of official media. I was personally invited by Toyota to the unveiling of the all-new Grand Highlander which was great, I attended some industry gatherings, and met some amazing people. Though all of that, I am excited to announce I finally have a schedule for press cars! I have been in the process of getting on the schedule for quite some time, which is what I was alluding to in my last post, but nothing was set in stone at that point. The cars I am getting will be left at the end of this post. The auto show was great, and I look forward to everything that will come from it!
COVID! Of course following the high of the auto show, I caught Covid. It's my first time having it, so I can't be mad I managed to steer clear of it for almost three years. However, it has me pretty bent out of shape. I can't film for the time being, however I have a hefty backlog that will carry the channel until I am healthy again.
So with that being said: Here is what I filmed in Florida as well as the press cars I am scheduled for!
