Hi Lofty!

So, I guess you realize we are not fans of CGI. :o For me, I like three things.

#1 - Speed
#2 - Traffic
#3 - Minimal editing

As Andre put it, MTV style cuts. Arrrrrgh! Bang bang editing makes me sick. To me that style of editing usually involves vehicles simply "driving." They may be speeding, but we're not really seeing any skilled driving. I would like to see long sequences of skilled driving. Unfortunately this is rarely possible because the longer the unedited sequence, the more streets need to be closed etc. It becomes more dangerous and more expensive.

I like the low point of view camera, makes me feel like I'm with the car. I believe it also makes the car appear to be travelling faster than it really is. That's fine with me. Throw in some near misses and keep that car moving.

Stuff like that. I like cars flying off of pipe ramps and exploding cannon rolls, as long as there's a touch of realism as to why and how this car became airborne or exploded. Hitting a banana peel should not cause a car to barrel roll down the highway. :P

P.S. Welcome aboard!
