Be a Better Rider: Challenge 4 – Quick stop video
This scene starts with a shot of a race track corner [there's a kind of AC/DC rock guitar soundtrack but without vocals]. The race track starts off camera right, sweeping across to the left, around then towards the centre, where the camera is. In the distance is a hill and at the foot of it are two white buildings. To the left of the those are stacked shipping containers in stacks of three and five, mostly blue in colour, there are about 60 of them.
A 'bike rider in black approaches from the right, rides around the bend of the track and stops in front of the camera. We have a complete side view of the rider and their bike, who takes up the whole of the shot. The rider turns off their 'bike engine (a Triumph Bonneville T120 Black), and begins to remove their helmet.
The rock soundtrack stops. The scene starts with a close up of the rider unclasping their helmet. Then cuts to the rider sitting on their bike, then removing their helmet and setting it down between their 'bike's handlebars.
The rider is famous Kiwi actor, Peter Elliot (text is overlaid on the screen to show this). Peter is about 45-50 years old with salt and pepper hair and a short, trimmed salt and pepper beard. He looks a lot like the actor Liam Cunningham who plays Ser Davos Seaworth in the TV show Game of Thrones.
Peter looks into the camera and says, "How short can you stop when travelling 50K? Stopping quickly on a 'bike is much harder than in a car – and it's not just a matter of 'mashing' on the brakes. Watch this." There's a quick sequence of cuts showing a close up headshot of Peter putting on his helmet, his hand and 'bike ignition and key, his hand on the throttle, and a cut to the side view of Peter on his 'bike. There's a slight growl from his bike as he moves with his bike out of the shot. The AC/DC rock soundtrack starts again.
The rock soundtrack continues as the scene opens with a shot of a road, which takes up most of the lower third of the camera frame. The middle third shows the grass verge on the left of the road and the top third of the camera frame shows shipping containers in the distance. The road goes off to the right of the frame. In the left-hand side of the road is one cone.
Then Peter rides his bike into view from the right of the camera frame and sweeps towards the side of the traffic cone, gradually getting bigger as he approaches the camera. Just as he is level with the traffic cone, there's a cut to a long, side shot of Peter going between two traffic cones and stopping quickly. In the same shot a distance scale is overlaid on the video at the bottom, from the traffic cones to the front of Peter's 'bike, showing a stopping distance of 6.8m. Peter then rides out of shot.
The rock sound track ends just as Peter enters the shot from the right. The shipping containers are in the distance and the shot is of him and his 'bike side on, then a quick cut to his front wheel and then we cut to Peter sitting on his 'bike from the waist up. He begins to take off his helmet, and then looks into the camera which is front right of him, and he says, "Film yourself somewhere safe, and then challenge your mates to do the same by tagging them in your post."
There's a cut to just a chest and shoulders shot of Peter on his bike, and he says directly to the camera: "Every video uploaded goes in the draw to win a $500 riding jacket...and even if you're not great, you'll receive a free Ride Forever course. Who do I challenge? Let's think...Ido Drent – get into it mate."
Peter begins to put on his helmet, there's a cut to a close up side view of his 'bikes back wheel, then there's a cut to a medium long shot of Peter on his bike moving out of shot. The rock soundtrack starts again and he rides out of the camera frame left and reappears top left of the camera frame, but in the distance.
