PalmettoSailor While it was pretty easy to see who paid for the film, I thought it was pretty interesting and moved getting a ride on a Chi-Mac boat up a few notches on my bucket list.

EJO CB I too enjoyed the video and it is nice to see and hear comments about the great Lake Michigan and this race. Of course as a Lake Michigan sailor/boater I'm bias, but thanks.
As for the complainers, I counted many more sailboats in movie than I did bottles of champagne. Any world class sailing race has sponsors and without them these races wouldn't start.
Mackinac Island is a great destination and even better done by boat, hey it's no different than Catalina Island, Key West, etc. except there NO cars on Mackinac Island.
Another great sailing race on the other side of Michigan is the Port Huron to Mackinac race 290 miles and sponsored by breweries and rum manufacturers, maybe that's more for the salty dogs and grumpies instead of wine and champagne.
CB thanks for bringing this SAILING race to this sailing public, even tough most of us knew of this great race already but many never saw the beauty.
Wished I was on board when my current boat sailed the Chi-Mac under a different name in the past.

Dylan , please refer my previous post re Veuve Cliquot .... in your case a suitable bribe might have been a crate of ... Jamesons ..

However we know you are a poor struggling independent film maker and I'm cheap, so we'll settle for a pint of bitter.

Oh , and in answer to your other questions ... yes ... probably ... but dirty deeds done dirt cheap is still the antipodean way.

You know if we get a few more vids on SailNet we could have the SailNet film awards ... and a SailNet film festival ... sponsored by Veuve Cliquot perhaps ... or more appropriately Pussers ..

We'd hold it in Cairns. Moderators award for filmic excellence would be the Palme d'Oil ; for cruising boats, the Barn D'Or ; the Big Freaking Sails award for heavy weather sailing, The Slamming D'or ...

3) Take footage for multiple weeks leading up to the race, film the parties, film on multiple sail boats, hold interviews in Chicago, fly a film crew to Mackinac, have them film the island, interview sailors immediately after the race (as you can imagine must of these are on the cutting room floor....), interview more sailors after the race back in Chicago and try to put it all together as a mini-documentary of the 2010 race and share it back with the sailing community. Oh, I almost forget, I also had secure a completely original soundtrack so that I could publically share this film without running into music licensing issues.....so I had to interview music producers and singer/songwriters, have them watch the trailer edit that was created for film and have them produce the music from scratch...



Not a small undertaking and not an effort that was supported
Like I said above, it's pretty decent stuff.

Just a heads-up on the music issue. If you edit on a Mac, there's this great bene that has traditionally come packaged with Final Cut called the "Free Play Music Library". Actually some great music in many, many different styles - all royalty free.

You hear the music from it on virtually every major network (sports, news, etc.). Could possibly save you some coin and legwork in the future.

Keep bangin' away at it!

With that preface, nice work CB. I enjoyed the entire video, which was clearly as sailing-related as any other, and not just a blatant advertising effort. I learned a little more about both the race, the people (both sailors and otherwise) associated with it, and Mackinac as a destination.

lapworth Nice video maybe next time you can get sponsor like Coors or Miller.

Minnewaska There's a lot of contradiction on this board, but someone else pays the bills for it, so they get to decide. I'm good with that.

I liked the video and it didn't scream out as an ad to me, although, it could be used as one for sure. While I've heard of the race, that was my first glimpse of it and I appreciated seeing it. That made it sailing related for me.

Nothing is going to get me to drink V-C anyway. Patuey.
