Not so coolio – Trucking Video Blog 2

admin | July 29, 2009 | 66 Comments

My goal with these video blogs is to show a real life look into what it is like trucking with Eskimo Sean and Trucker Steve. No professional equipment, just a cheap flip ultra HD camera and a little bit of creative editing. If you would rather me just make silly/sad videos let me know, I don’t want to waste my time with this if it is lame to you.

Production notes: The workflow I’m using for these vlogs is lame, I’m editing the raw h.264 files on a dell studio laptop. I should neoscene the files so I could actually edit in real time as well as slight better color representation , not that it would help this cheap camera much. These videos are quick to cut together so I am not trying to spend to much time on them.

Camera: Flip Ultra HD
Edited: Sony Vegas pro 9.0
Colored: Sony Vegas pro 9.0

Shot hand held, no mounts, no score

Rendered at: Audio: 192 Kbps, 44,000 Hz, 16 Bit, Stereo, WMA
Video: 30 fps, 1280×720 Progressive, WMV, 8 Mbps

    Steve, very nice web..I am a part of http://www.warontruckerscom we are looking for a video of the Idle Police if you should have one we would love to get a copy posted. We have DOT offices monitoring our site as well as some hits from the US government. Slowly gaining popularity including Facebook. I am laughing pretty good at your pictures, good to see a happy trucker with so many angry & unprofessional drivers out there.

    Dear Steve, i liked this video, they're all really great… I believe variety is the key to life, so i really enjoy the goofy spoofs you do, and the real trucker experiences like this video alike. This video made me pull up gangstas paradise off youtube, been a while since ive heard it, if you talk to sean tell him i said thanks. My mom and her new husband live in Michigan, and work for CCX (Conway-Central Express) if you have ever heard of it. my ex-stepdad also drove for CCX, and his son currently owns a Mack, and runs gravel locally here in Illinois. I used to ride with him years ago… Ive been thinking of applying to work on the docks and load up the trucks, since a CCX terminal is right behind my house. Im thinking the docks would be my foot in the door, and once im 21 i could learn to drive. IMO anything would beat the shitty restaurant i work in. and i really think i would enjoy trucking. By the way are you an Owner/Operator?
