This is my behind the scenes footage for a Mercedes Metris shoot we’re working on to win a van from Mercedes and Inc Magazine.
And here’s my entry:
“We’re currently working on a feature length documentary about canoeing in the Ozarks. Filmmaking and vlogging requires a lot of gear, and we’d love to use a Mercedes Metris Van to transport our equipment from our studio to our shooting locations. We currently use an open pickup truck, which leaves our camera gear exposed to the elements and theft. Winning the Metris would allow us to build custom cabinets and perhaps sleeping quarters to safely and securely stow our computers, equipment and camping gear.
Like Steve Zissou’s Belafonte or Cousteau’s Calypso, the Metris will become a character in our film. We’ll film and share the process of outfitting the van for travel, and we’ll vlog our family adventures with it for the production.”
