Facing Adversity | Automotive Edit Competition Features (4K)

*** Watch in 4K!!! ***

I felt the title, Facing Adversity was a good name for this video. We are all in insanely tough times right now, and all we can do is keep our heads up, and keep moving forward.

First off, I seriously just want to say thank you to all of you guys. When I started this competition, I didn’t realize the overwhelming amount of support I would get from it. It got to the point where we had so many submissions that I had to stop people a full day early from entering.

Thank you to everyone who e-mailed in to show their support of my channel as well as Zachs. Even if you did not win, I hope this helped you guys pass some time during these crazy days we are having. I also hope that you guys were able to learn and grow from this in some way, shape, or form. We may be hosting another one of these in the future so keep an eye out!

For those of you still interested in practicing your editing skills like your coloring, sound, beat matching, etc. I have created an Automotive Film Pack which you can purchase on my website. It includes 20 raw, ungraded automotive footage that I have personally shot, as well as some exhaust audio. Many websites offer you stock footage, but not like this. Feel free to take a look! 

Huge shoutout to my good friend Zach from Curbbangers in helping judge this competition, please go give him a follow and subscribe! Instagram: @curbbangers | YouTube:
