TIF airshow documentaries

Post by Adam » Fri Apr 19, 2019 5:40 pm

Hi all, some of you may know I've done a couple of collaboration videos with AirshowStuff, including the documentary-style reviews of AirVenture which have proved popular in the past couple of years. If you haven't seen them, here is the most recent one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nKWMSnp3N_U

That's a style of video I've enjoyed making for some time on my own channel, but in the past few months I've started to take it a little more seriously and my intention is to produce a series of 6+ such films each year from now on. So, if you've been enjoying the Oshkosh videos on AirshowStuff, you might enjoy the six other films in my 2018 "series", which I have recently finished making. They are:

Ep.1 | The Royal International Air Tattoo | United Kingdom | 90 minutes [incl. cockpit features] >>> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c31sLj9dI1M
Ep.2 | The Jersey International Air Display | Jersey | 30 minutes [4K] >>> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fG3R3FY_Tdw
Ep.3 | The Zhengzhou Airshow | China | 40 minutes >>> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sqg-eqTEFC8
Ep.4 | Wings Over Baltics | Latvia | 30 minutes >>> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=icxO647bsXE
Ep.5 | Portugal Air Summit | Portugal | 20 minutes >>> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XL8jZqiPMOw
Ep.6 | Midlands Air Festival | United Kingdom | 20 minutes >>> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c5bZT7Urrg0

My aim is to convey the character of each event by showing highlights of most individual acts to give viewers an impression what it was like to attend each event. With the narration, I have tried to strike a balance between being informative while not annoying those who want to hear the sound of the aircraft.

The 2019 series will include several UK shows and a small handful in mainland Europe, all in 4K. I'm also planning to have a couple from the US as well - and should be joined by an American voice for the commentary. I'll post them here as they are released, the first is due in late May.

Feedback is very welcome and I'd love to hear if you enjoyed them.

You already know I like these videos, but I like them more each time. I really hope we get enough footage to do something similar for this side of the globe.

Hi all, now we're in the depths of winter, I hope you might enjoy a little online airshow action from my 2019 series of airshow films from around the world. This year there are 9 episodes, each covering a different event, spanning 7 countries and featuring a grand total of 91 seperate displays. I've tried to give a flavour of each event and of a dozen or so of its most memorable performances in each case. I particularly recommend the second half of the season, from Ep.5 onwards. Trailer and episode list below. It's over three hours of viewing in all!

For those who haven't already seen - AirshowStuff and I combined forces earlier this year to make Airshow Action 2019, a two-part mini-series featuring the best airshow action of 2019, filmed at 14 airshows in five countries. Part one, released in the summer, focuses on military action: everything from the Combined Arms Demo at Nellis and USAF Heritage Flights at Oshkosh to Sukhoi jets in Poland and some of the award-winning displays from the Royal International Air Tattoo.

Part 2 was finally released yesterday, and focuses on the warbirds. Highlights include huge formations of Hurricanes, Corsairs, Dakotas, Mustangs and more, WWI fighters, WWII bombers, and some very rare classic jets such as the Viggen, Hunter, Vampire and CT-133.
