New mods revealed

I have been so excited to show you guys what our sponsor Apex Performance has sent us that I have made an entire video on just that! To be honest, I was surprised that I could even keep the excitement to myself. I was itching to reveal this video much sooner, because I wanted to share my joy. However, for the sake of the show, and a slight virtue of patience, I decided to wait.

Hopefully you guys enjoyed the video as much as I'd enjoyed making it. The entire video from shooting to editing took over 40 hours to complete. Filming took around two and a half hours to complete. Puyang was helping out with moving certain aftermarket parts to locations I had envisioned. This project took a lot of premeditated planning and vision. After shooting the footage, the editing process was broken down into several processes as well. The video itself is broken up into three major themes: What the car possessed from factory, the modifications done to it so far, and the parts that will be the next stage of the STI. Each clip had to be re-timed to give that slow motion to quick pan feel. Then each clip was camera tracked in 3-D space so that the lines and points could be set in 3-D space as well. The text that labels and describes each part was also set in 3-D space via camera tracking data. I felt that this gave the entire video much more entertainment value than without. Could you imagine the film being just me shooting car parts? Boring.

As I have always thought, "If the content itself isn't interesting, make the video interesting."

That was the entire push behind this video. After all of the technical stuff had been done, I proceeded in adding the tint of the film, including the lens leaks and certain lens flares. Marry all of that with some nice music, and you got yourself a film that stands firmly on its own, even without seeing cars going sideways.

The modifications shown in the video are as follows (In order of appearance):
Crawford Air Oil Separator
DEI Titanium Exhaust Wrap
Kartboy Exhaust Hangers
Kartboy Short Throw Shifter
Kartboy Front & Rear Shifter Bushings
DEI Reflect-a-Gold
PTP Turbo Blanket
Beatrush Forged Pitch Stop Mount
GrimmSpeed Turbo Heat Shield
Invidia V2 Bellmouth Catless Downpipe
Invidia G200 Cat Back Exhaust
