Hello model T friends.
Just made a video postcard . Its a short film about driving on rural roads in Vaermland Sweden this summer.
Rolf, Nice video! Thank you for posting it.
What a nice video. Nothing like watching a Model T driving through trees and farms on a one lane unpaved road! I will never get tired of seeing a Model T drive with lit headlights.
You've got my vote. Best produced Model T video yet.
Wonderful video, thankyou!
Totally blown away! Now that's what you get when you combine a Model T, a GoPro, and talent.
That's a good combination of shots from different angles, and good editing with a nice use of cross fades. All of us who like making Model T videos should watch this again and pay attention to how it's done. I'm going to steal a some ideas from this.
Thank you guys.
What an overwhelming positive response. I'm blushing.
I must say that a model T is the perfekt car for this smal winding gravel roads that criss-cross this part of Sweden. Not much traffic, low speed and friendly drivers. Here in Sweden its mandatory to drive with lights on always, buth that's no problem with my stock 6 volt generator thanks to mr Reagan and his VR.
Ahhh....summer....Sweden...that was a midnight ride? Yes?
I gave it a "Thumbs Up".
Good scenery and a great looking car.
The different points of view added a great deal of interest to the video. I expect we'll see some of that in Steve's future posts.
Roger -- I didn't see any bras in it.
Great video Rolf however, I always thought a Model T was a "Chick Magnet" but the only things that came running to the car were pigs !!! LOL
Very well done. Thank you for sharing.
Very nice. Suppose the white short cylinders along the road in the fields are grass hay bales wrapped in plastic? Beautiful country for T touring.
Yes Chuck, it's a way to preserve the hay until it's consumed, a very common sight in the Swedish countryside since a couple of decades. How do US farmers preserve their hay?
Wow Wow Wow --- I'm ready to leave So. Cal. and move to Sweden where there are few other cars and the cows, pigs and horses all like model T's. The combination of different camera angles, beautiful scenery and fine music selection gets my vote for "Best Video to Introduce the Joy of a Ride in a Model T." Stunningly beautiful postcard. Rolf ... we want MORE!
Bravo Rolf, very well done sir. Your video showcases the joy of driving and owning a T, Something that may get lost if we don't constantly promote how important it is to preserve and protect this part of automotive history...I envy those beautiful country roads you get to ramble,..and i
love the bluegrass that you picked..Thank you.
I have been away for the weekend without access to the "puter". Just want to say thanks to all the thumbs up.
Bob Cascisa: "Pigs magnet". That's right. LOL. By the way. I have been to Poulsbo a couple of times. Wonderful place and people. Its almost like coming home. Scandinavian street names flags and names on stores etc.
Steve Jelf. Your videos and your suggestions to make a more interesting film has been an inspiration to me. Thanks.
George. Yes . The last part of the video is shot close to midnight. I love the midsummer nights when the sun barely drops behind the horizon a few hours.
Most parts of the video is shot with a GoPro and the rest with a Canon camcorder
This video is just my way of showing passion to the hobby and the wonderful car that we all love.
One thing I notice in this video is that the pictures are much sharper than mine. Looks like I need a better camera.
What a wonderfully done video Rolf......
Some of the scenes along your jaunt are very similar to the scenery here in central Wisconsin.
There aren't many dirt roads left around here but there are a few and every now and then on a hot day I, my wife and a friend will take them in with my '19 Touring.
Never know.......we've been known to wind up in some "metropolis" for ice cream too.
