Camp Jeep Ride Along At The NY International Auto Show 2015 – Bloopers – Outtakes

Article, photos and video by Len Rapoport • IPA Correspondents Andy Peeke and Amy Bursor


Version One With Amy

The Jacob Javits Convention Center is the best venue for the auto show and this years show will prove to be spectacular. At this writing we only attended the two Press Only days on April 1st and 2nd which is a great way to get great photos, shoot videos on the floor, interview some of the shows spoke people.

We planned to take two of our correspondents with us, Andy Peeke and our newest IPA staff member Amy Bursor.  Amy has worked with Andy on many commercial projects from modeling to television commercials and we were happy to have her join us at IPA.

Last year the highlight of the show for Andy was the Jeep Ride Along and you can see the video we shot and our full article on the 2014 show here.

So this year, we decided to have some more fun at the show and of course hit the Camp Jeep Ride Along track on the first day we attended the show.  We decided not to wait for our full show video and article and publish this special edition now so others that are going to attend the show can see what is in store for them.

Two Versions At Camp Jeep

This year Andy had an idea for the Jeep video. He and Amy would sit in the back seat of the open Jeep and I would sit in the front passenger seat and turn around and shoot them.  The problem is you need to be seat belted in for this ride and that meant limited mobility for me with camera, light and mic.  I twisted as much as possible and as we went on the course and the jeep began to tilt, go over and up obstacles and the sun was coming through the open top, I found it almost impossible to shoot them properly.

I yelled, “Andy this won’t work.  The sun is blacking out my view screen on the camera and the exposure is changing on the camera and I can’t control it.”  As you will see in the first video we had to stop mid-way on the course.

So now we decided to go in a hard top Jeep and try again, this time me in the back seat shooting Andy alone in the front passenger seat.  This one was under my control and you can see how much better it is. Than we wanted to do a version for Amy as well, so you can see both versions and see which one you like best, I think both are fantastic.

I promised both that they would have their very own reels for their portfolio’s so we ended up going around the course for the third time.  Well you know the old saying three times is a charm and Amy did a great job on her first assignment with IPA for IMPress Magazine.

Our two talented correspondents did a great job and I think you will agree, they had a fun time at Camp Jeep’s Ride Along too.

If you are going to the Auto Show, and you should be sure to get on-line early and take your ride, it is better than a ride in an amusement park.

Version Two With Andy

Uncut Bonus Videos

I think we all love to see those behind the scenes or bloopers that are often shown at the end of motion pictures or on television or the internet, so with that in mind, we have decided to include a few here.  Watch for our complete show article coming soon.
