I've been asked to help with arranging some sound recording for the upcoming Stephen Frears / Lance Armstrong film. They're after some 'peloton' atmosphere, without any extraneous noise.
For this, the production has hired Redbridge (Hog Hill) for a couple of hours on Sunday June 1st. A Central London CTC fast group will ride out from Highbury, to be there about 08.45. We have the circuit till 10.30, and there will be the option of a group ride after.
I was wondering if Islington could help flesh out the numbers - we're after about 15 riders in all. Obviously geared bikes race bikes, able to ride the circuit in a bunch a number of times, and do as requested (most importantly keep quiet when asked and turn phones off, not just to silent). Syringes provided.
If interested, please contact me at [email protected] (07768 354010)
Separately, I'm leading a group to the Womens Pro Race as it goes through Hertford on Saturday May 10th, leaving Barracuda in East Finchley at 10. All welcome to show support
I'm sure we would be able to help out.
Might be an idea to highlight to our members how fast 'fast' is?
Sounds like a good/free way to get some circuit experience in!
Yeah I'm keen.
Out of interest, are you a freelance sound recordist or more production? (I'm writing-directing a short film, cycling, possibly coming up this autumn/winter).
I'm up for this. Knowing Central London CTC, I imagine their pace would be towards the top end of our B rides.
