We've been blogged! (again)...

We were picked up by another blog, this time one in Belgium!

Check it out here: http://drivr.be/2009/03/19/video-californische-top-gear-hommage/

My Dutch is a little rusty but here is a rough translation of their review:

"Top Gear's format is a unique concept which cannot be copied," I previously wrote regarding the inferior Australian spin-off of the show. Today I must take back those words, because where a huge budget and a professional television team down under failed, three enthusiastic American fans with simple Youtube film succeeded. In an homage to their favorite car show, they use the tested recipe of the cheap car challenge as the premise for a three-day roadtrip in search of the best driving road in California. Sound camera work, a great premise, but in particular, real emotions and comradery against breathtaking scenery; at last a Top Gear takeoff worth watching as much as the original.

As a massive top gear fan, I just wanted to let you guys know how much I loved your film. Excellent job!
One question though, what is the piece of music that kicks in at 7.47 in the last video?

Once again, excellent job! I really hope there might be a sequel one day!

hey guys, great job. I just watched the whole 6 parts of it off Youtube.

i love the cinematography and the music. at times it feels like real Top Gear. Obviously, one of the most successful element is that you are not copying the clarkson/hammond/may formula. The different and much more American personality really made the film fresh and real. A brilliant effort.

one thing though, if you wouldn't mind. What is the kind of budget and manpower involve in such a production? me and my mates in Hong Kong talk about making something like this for a long long time but don't have the courage to start it. would be a great help if we can have some kind of estimate. please contact me at eelnomis@hotmail.com, thanks

again terrific effort and a great production all in all!
