Interested? Here's the skinny:

I represent a major automotive media outlet and we're putting together a new piece. We've got our hands on a pair of yet-unreleased "soft roaders" and are planning to put them through some serious stuff. We'll be offroading them at Rocks And Valleys and probably damage some very expensive equipment.

What we need are a group of offroaders to star alongside our vehicles in this piece. You'll be acting as recovery vehicles and also run some things over on film. You and your truck will appear in the piece - with the possibility for a speaking role. Large, modified trucks with some serious pull are preferred. A winch is optional, but helpful. We'll be picking from the list of applicants a select few to star.

Please drop me a PM here with the details of your truck, your experience, what kind of recovery equipment you have and your contact information. Entrants who send in current pictures would be higher on the list.

The shoot will be this Sunday, April 19th, for most of the day. Plan from early morning until sunset. The rest of the details will be disclosed to the entrants. If you have any questions and prefer to contact me directly, my cell phone is 313-903-2963.

So, any takers?



Big Update: We've worked out a deal with Ron Price up at Rocks and Valleys to do our shoot there. We'll be meeting at R&V at 10AM sharp. Again, PM me for details if you're interested. Please don't show up unannounced - Confirm with me first.

Nope - purely a volunteer position. You'll be starring in something very big that you can show Momma and make her proud, but no cash. This will be worth your time.
Meh, try the unemployment line then, maybe you'll find some suckers there.

We don't need huge trucks, just a couple with the proper tires. Hell, a pair of modified XJs would do the trick. We're just looking towards bigger for the cinematics of it.

thanks for the big advance notice.
I know, right? We were just handed down this idea from the bossmen last night and are currently scrambling to get everything together. We've got a few applicants in the bag but are continuing to look.

:poke:Can it have product name and logos displayed on the vehicle or will they need to come off??
Run all the stickers you like. If you come out - and I'm sure you're representing UltimateAir - we'll even give your biggest sticker a quick pan. We're all for promoting businesses that contribute to the cause.

Where are you going to shoot at?
We're still trying to figure that one out. The Mounds is out of the question because we're in the No-Truck time zone. We're looking at Twisted Trails or Rocks and Valleys - But we're open to any possible locations. Anywhere with diverse terrain and plenty of bypasses should the obstacle be too intense.
