We were out at Allwheels when we met a guy in an XJ with a bad starter. what started out as a bad starter turned into a bent/broken control arm and relocated bumper.
They used the winch to hold the front axle in place controlling the broken jeep's decend down big daddy. which is a long rocky (or stumpy) incline.
sorry im missing a tape that had more detail of the damage. but ill try to explain
what happened to the jeep from the begining.
he had a starter issue. so they were gonna give him a little tug to get him going down the hill. unfortunatly i think he had it in 4 low then he tried to start it.
so the force of the bump start broke the pass side upper control arm bolt (at the axle). if fact we never found it! When that broke the ds upper control arm bent and broke.
at this point the guy used his front winch to pull/hold his axle in place while he rolled down the hill.
despite the fact chris offered to drive him to the hardware store and fix it on the hill.
side note the jeep started when it broke, but i think he had to shut it off.
soooo with the axle in place he starts rolling down the hill again, thats when the axle folded under and took the bumper and steering with it.
at that point chris pulled the jeep up on to the back of thier truck. he had thier rear winch around the front axle so it pulled the axle into place and the jeep could be rolled down the rest of the hill. they then led it down the hill.
this is actually a 2 hour event but i had to cut it down to 10 minutes to fit on youtube, all and all i was interesting to watch.
This is the first time i got to see Dave use thier truck as a tow truck. it worked surprisingly well
A clip from a series I produce for Newmarket Access TV in the town of Newmarket, NH.
In this clip we honor WWII Navy Veteran Rogewr L. Munroe who was unable to appear in studio. The program is taped bi-weekly in Town Council chambers and later aired 2 weeks later following post-production titles and photos.
This has been a labour of love for both myself and the Newmarket Veterans Trust Committee.
This is video i shot of one of the artisans using an old skool drill at the Newmarket Heritage Festival in Newmarket, NH
This is a video of a walkthrough of the old Cheswell Graveyard on South Main St in Newmarket, NH. Among the headstones is the grave of Wentworth Cheswell an African-American who devoted his life to public service in the town of Newmarket and is among it's founding fathers. The restoration of this historic graveyard is thanks to the efforts of Richard Alperin a local historian and president of the Newmarket Historical Society.
This is a clip from my coverage of the 2007 Gloucester Fishbox Derby and shown on Cape Ann TV. Throughout the afternoon the tool that was announcing the runs kept yelling at people and made the whole thing kinda miserable to tape. In this clip you can see how his attitude contributed to the crash you are about to witness. Notice the distraction he caused the kid in lane 2 prior to the beginning of the run.
This is a clip I shot of a train layout at the Heritage Festival in Newmarket, NH.
This is an ad we produced for a local legal professional in Lynn,MA
This spot is half in Spanish and half in English. Mr. Funez's office was next door to another client we were working with and he seemed like a nice enough guy so decided to film his bisuiness too.
This is promotional video we shot for our friend's new custom fabrication business. They can be contacted at oneoff4x4yahoo****
Every find yourself grilling and you don't have a spachula? Well why not be like Chris and Dave just make your own? All you need is a stainless steel mudflap and a plasma cutter. Oh and probably a few hits from the bong before your friends shop up with their video camera.
This is a "How To" segment filmed for our forthcoming pilot of "Real Life 4X4." In this clip Chris Ryan and Dave Whitman perform an oil change on their Ford F-350 Powerstroke Diesel in their basement garage. We were in total shock to find out how much oil this bad boy needs. - Enjoy!!!
This another musical number taken from the 2005 Manchester-Essex Regional High School revue "Spamlet." This clip is a performance of a classic song from the musical "Kiss Me Kate." Again this was shot with over two night with the camera placed at both ends of the stage to create the effect of a two camera shoot. I then edited the two shows together syncing the audio to the first night's performance and "sweeting the audio mix in post-production.
In this rare screentest from 2001, Anthony Arsenio and Richard Paradise appear as "Bob and Terrence" in a short skit entitled "The Switch." This three act mini-play was never completed, but we would like to present it here for your amusement. This video was shot by Peter on his old crappy VHS-C camcorder. Christina is backstage pulling the curtains for this production shot in the auditorium at Endicott College in Beverly, MA.
Please check out our other videos on our Metacafe page.- Thank you for watching!!!!
This is a rare video clip of our entertainment talk show Cinematic Radio. In this clip Peter's nephew Anthony captures Chris and Pete on the air at the old WNSH studios formally located in the basement of Endicott College in Beverly,MA. This clip is roughly dated around August of 2001 and also features shots of a younger Richard Paradise (aka Bobman) and his sister Christina (our Script Supervisor.)
Enjoy this rare glimpse into our radio days.
Normally we don't like silly videos of idiots blowing up stuff or themselves, but in the case of Chris and Dave we'll make an exception. Here Dave demonstrates the difference between a store bought M-80 and his homemade one. (Did we mention they are our special effects guys?)
This is another clip from the High School Revue "Spamlet" that Chris shot back in 2004. This clip is a re-enactment of a famous episode of "Gilligan's Island" called "The Producer." Enjoy!!! Also check out "What a Piece of Work Is Man" also from the same show.
This is proof that it is possible to have way too much time on your hands. Peter and his nephews made this cute little video using mspaint and windows movie maker several years back. So without further ado enjoy the Seasick Captain!!! (Remember: no heads were harmed in the production of this short. Thank you!)
This is the teaser trailer for a short film we started making before the un-timely death of Steve Erwin. At the time we decided to hault production on the piece out of respect for his passing. We even temporarily removed the video from YouTube. Now we're going to finish the film sometime this summer and dedicated the short to Steve. So enjoy!!!!
