My name is Alex Baldwin, and together with my team I am going to be embarking on an ambitious 3rd Year university project. By the end of this year we are going to be putting together a 20 min documentary following my journey from a complete novice to following my dream of competing in a motorsport race. We want explore the challenges that I will have to overcome in this documentary, finding out exactly what it will take to make it in the world of motorsport. Giving viewers an insight into the intense requirements that you need to fulfill in terms of fitness, budget etc. Finding out just how hard it is to achieve your dream and reflecting on what stopped me before. In this documentary with the help of my team, we will delve deeper in to my passion for motorsport and my history with it… Our producer has identified the key tasks that will form the narrative of this documentary and if completed, will give me and the viewer a greater insight into this thrilling world.

We plan to shoot and produce a native 4K, professional short-documentary following me throughout the process as I gradually learn what it takes to be a motorsport racing driver. The documentary team consists of myself, Director of Photography Cailan Cook and Lead Producer George Nicholls - we plan to put together a 20 minute piece for our final year at University. In order to achieve the professional look we’re aiming for, we’ll be filming in multiple locations across the country, speaking to a variety of exciting contributors and making use of a variety of equipment, including:

  • Panasonic DVX200 Professional Video Camera (Industry Standard)
  • Panasonic Lumix FZ330 Camera
  • Panasonic Lumix G7 Camera 
  • Sony AX53 Video Camera 
  • Go-Pro Wide Angle Mini-Cameras (for usage inside vehicular scenes) 
  • Portable Clip-Mic’s w/ TASCAM (Industry Standard)

With your support, we can be certain that we document this truly personal story in the most effective way possible. By backing us here on Kickstarter, you will become an integral part of the production process, ensuring we’re able to execute on the vision we’ve had for this piece from the very start, perhaps you’ll even receive some goodies in exchange for your generous support!

Risks and challenges

Our 3rd Year University project is about chasing your dreams. This, inherently, has some unique challenges which we will need to overcome.

I am a novice in the world of racing, which means I have a lot of tasks to complete before I race for the first time. Achieving a racing license, being fit to race and obtaining money to race are a few of the hurdles I will need to overcome. This will all be documented, which will help show my evolution as a person and a race driver. Afterwards, we will see if this experience was all I expected it to be and if I would have done anything differently.

I will have the personal challenge of understanding what stopped me from trying to achieve this earlier, which will delve more into me as a person and my family who got me into motorsport. This may bring out some memories and emotions I had never shared before!
