New video from Robert Merz

Post by Steve Jelf » Sun Mar 01, 2020 12:11 pm

Most of us have seen him fetching firewood in BC with the 1925 RP. Here he is out looking for cows. I like the nice production with cross dissolves, a mix of perspectives, and some beautifully done drone shots. I like the cute trick at the end, too.

Don't know how you found this one Steve. I can't imagine the time and supplies to put in all that fencing. At least he found the cows.

With 900 acres, it'll take a little time to get to the cows.
You bet I watched it!
Robert does fantastic videos.
You found this very fresh out of the hopper as it were, it's a brand new video. :)
Thanks Steve!

Would be cool to have places around here like that to drive on. I see that he has others there too. My only comment would be; wish he would have had the camera lower. I was feeling kinda claustrophobic trying to look out the windshield.
I know the voices aren't real but damn they have some good ideas! :shock:

I wonder if Mr. Merz has a starter on this car? Perhaps he just hand cranks it to entertain non T people? I do see an amp gauge on the dashboard. I also see a lack of the correct tail light and license plate bracket on this car. I've seen two recently on ebay or our classifieds.

I sometimes hand crank my starter car just to entertain myself. :D

I hand crank all my T's. Starters are highly overrated!

That was a nice video.

I remember the one he made about his grandfather's T-powered buzz saw. That is also worth watching if you haven't seen it.
