Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

No jet-black kites in this video which is about the only thing that prevents it from being spot-on perfect I suppose.  Smiley

Visa Black Card Back in Black 2 Min Commercial


I showed it to me wife who didn't seem to get it, but I do believe they have getting a man's attention down to a science.  And now I have a strange desire to sign up for a black credit card!  Smiley

I doubt she would be very enjoyable if she didn't come with interest.

I checked into the card - $450 per year for the privilege so that they can potentially charge you even more in interest.

Also, the house where they shot this is/was available for a mere 19 million.  Be advised, I did not notice flyable beach in the video, so buyer beware!  Smiley

I'd say they're pushing all the right buttons for guys though! Cool choppers, cool motorcycles, hot women in leather and bikinis. It doesn't make me want the credit card though. I like the commercial though.

I think so Tom..

Forgive the next bit of speculative prof interest ramble...

I downloaded the 1080mp4 version, looks pretty good for something that's been through youtubes 'compression session'.

The slow mo bits like copper props/rooster tail  look like 120Fps raw, no twixoring (or maybe just a little) there also looks like a few frames went out through DSLR, the shot of the towel wrap is probably 5DII possibly with a basic 16-35 @16-18mm, full frame but way too wide to be polite, it did get the whole transom deck in from close range, also that shot had a few 'tells' in it with regards to how it handles movement, and on a first look I'd say different resolution to the main camera.

But... beyond all the tech guessing, the budget suggests 'use the new cool expensive stuff'. We just picked up a Scarlet to add to the ranks of 'toys' and my tech Dir. has not shut up about it  Roll Eyes, me, I just tell him where to point it  Wink

I only rabbited on cos you asked though, over all it's a very well constructed piece of filming and deserves any 'fantasy projection' it gets Smiley

but you did ask

ghfisanotti,

Thanks for the link, some great BTS info  Smiley I've just sacked my very humbled Tech Director, but only after taking his company 'Visa Bl@ck' card off him Wink, he wanted to go out and get the 'Phantom' immediately  Roll Eyes

'Brain Farm' are quite the team, I'd love to spend a few days just watching them work, so many cool toys  Cool
