A SELECTION OF DRIVE, FLY, BUILD, AND STUNT YOUTUBE VIDEOS FOR OCTOBER
Most people love a Hollywood blockbuster, so while you're waiting for the new Star Wars: The Last Jedi movie to hit cinemas at the end of the year, why not check out a handful of videos that, although they don't have monster production budgets or famous actors, are often made with passion and creativity to produce a few hours of interesting and enjoyable entertainment.
For October, we'll highlight 4X4 overland travel in Australia, two small aircraft journeys, the journey to modify a small Yamaha bike, and the amazing skills of a stunt rider.
CANNING STOCK ROUTE AUSTRALIA
From Andrew St Pierre White’s YouTube channel, 4XOverland, follow along as he travels the Canning Stock Route, the longest and most remote public tracks in Australia, from Halls Creek in the Kimberley region of Western Australia to Wiluna in the mid-west region, produced as a series of videos in a first person narrative account of a recent journey. And the channel has plenty of video resources for the 4X4 enthusiast, with an emphasis on long distance overland travel.
BEYOND BORDERS WORLD FLIGHT
Louis Cole and Juan-Peter Schulze fly a small Cessna 210 around the world in 90 days. Currently in Australia, the vlogs of the trip are a bit behind, but well worth viewing if you have an interest in aviation and travel documentary film making.
ICARUS TROPHY PARAMOTORING
Icarus Trophy is an annual 1600 km (1000 mile) unsupported, cross-country paramotor adventure race. Follow Tucker Gott’s vlogs of him competing in the 2017 event. Great aerial footage, along with his personal perspective, makes for a fun and informative documentary record of what it’s like to take part in the Icarus Trophy.
BMCO MOTORCYCLE MODIFICATION
One could describe BMCO’s videos as meditation for motorcyclists, using a time-lapse style, with a hypnotic cadence, to capture the custom work to modify a Yamaha TW125. You might also learn a few custom bike modification tricks.
STUNT RIDER SARAH LEZITO
Pure skill. Nothing more to be said.
