RC VIDEO TIPS - Shooting Basics

I've been working in the entertainment industry for nearly 15 years as a cameraman, editor, and producer.  I currently edit for the NFL Network, UFC, Razor USA, LA Kings, and a host of other fun clients.. Away from the day job, my hobby / passion is Producing RC Videos... I started iJumpRC just to have a little fun with RC Videos, and I produce RC Videos for the Traxxas YouTube Channel.

I've had TONS of people ask me for tips about shooting RC videos for YouTube... So here are a few BASIC tips to hopefully improve the quality of the RC Videos you are shooting.

 YouTube is in the midst of a massive revolution... People aren't just watching on their phone at lunch time, now it is easier than ever to watch your favorite YouTube content on your TV.   In order to separate your videos from the masses of bad YouTube content... it is important to step up your game... and start thinking like a TV Cameraman / Editor / Producer.

1) DON'T JUST LET IT ROLL! - So many people turn on the camera, hit record and just play with their RC cars in front of the camera, put that up on YouTube and expect their RC Video will get a million views like DJMedic2008 / RCSparks. All the props in the world to Aaron, he is an RC Video LEGEND! and I am a big fan.  However, it is important to think about what you want your video to look like, plan a few shots, and take a little extra time figuring out which angles would look best for the shot. Then do a few takes, try to get the shot to look the way you want it before you rush off to the next thing.

2) STEADY YOUR CAMERA - Whether you're shooting with a RED Camera, a GoPro, or an iPhone... your video will look like crap if its all shaky (i've been guilty of this on occasion).  If you can, put your camera on a tripod, set it on the ground or a rock, or if you have to hand-hold it, make a conscious effort to be REALLY smooth. If you have a friend hold your camera... tell them, "Make it REALLY smooth, or I will fly this RC car right into your face" (or find a nicer way to say that, having a friend that is willing to hold your camera is a valuable asset when it comes to making your own RC Videos).



3) SHOOT B-ROLL - Make sure you shoot additional shots besides just the RC Action.  Shoot some scenery of the primary location of your video, shoot close ups of your RC before you destroy the body, shoot anything funny or unique that happens while you are driving your RC, shoot a little bit of getting the RC prepped before you go run it...  Take a couple minutes to run down the trail with the camera at RC level (without the RC) to get a POV (point of view) shot to use for your edit.
All of this EXTRA footage will really help you sculpt your video into something truly entertaining.  It will win you subscribers, and keep viewers coming back.

These are just a few simple things you can do to make a world of difference with your videos.   This obviously just scratches the surface, but hopefully it gets you thinking... and will lead to much better RC videos on YouTube.





Leave a comment with your YouTube Channel so I can check it out! And if you have any specific questions, send me an E-Mail at iJumpRC@gmail.com.. I get a butt ton of e-mails, but I try to answer all the good ones.

If you get a chance, check out my YouTube Channel at www.YouTube.com/iJumpRC make sure to subscribe, and tell your friends to check it out! Also I put up a lot of pics on instagram @iJumpRC.

Happy RC Shooting!

This RC Truck Crash was SO amazing in super slow motion... I had to put it up. I wish I know how many flips and cartwheels this truck did before it landed and I freakin love the grass and mud in the grill after. The truck was 100% fine after the crash. Gotta give some props to Traxxas trucks, every RC Basher breaks once in a while, but this thing took some serious abuse and kept rippin.

iJRC-016 - E-Revo Rattlesnake Encounter


This video doesn't really go with my RC Jumping theme, we bumped into him while shooting another video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vukWr5DBBbI&list=PL69CD30B32768C1FF)
Anyways, we couldn't pass up the chance to do a video with this BEAUTIFUL, Red Diamond Rattler.

Rattlesnakes are venomous and it is VERY important to keep a safe distance... however they are also a very important part of the desert ecosystem.  Although we probably were a mild annoyance to this snake for a few minutes, we have a great deal of respect for this animal and we were happy to let him go on his way.

No rattlesnake was harmed in the making of this video :)

Shooting Traxxas Videos

Over the past year I've been working hard in the RC Video world… Although not under the iJumpRC name.  The good people over at Traxxas have been commissioning me to produce "iJumpRC Style" videos for their YouTube channel and website, and it has been a blast!

I'm a HUGE RC Fanatic, and these videos showcase what I love about RC.  Some people love to race, some love to crawl, some love scale trucks, or drifting, or bashing in the backyard.  I'm not sure what to call these videos.  "Freestyle RC?" Whatever you want to call it, they are the kind of videos I like to watch.  It's all about Imagination, Stunts, and Style… It's gotta look good, or it doesn't count.

Here are some of my favorite videos we've done recently…
