What is HittingRedline.com?
HittingRedline was started by me, David Rose, in July of 2011 as a car blog, one that catered to a wide variety of tastes. But since then, this website has become about so much more. It’s still about classic metal, aspirational concepts, new technologies, and any other vehicular interest, but seeks to explore, as I often say, the art of driving through film, photography, and writing.
The latter is rather self-explanatory and includes pieces on new technolgies (such as the MYT Engine), analyses of long-running sports car models, and more. Likewise, the photography aspect is quite simple. It’s this website’s passion for film that requires some more explanation.
As anyone who has tried to find quality car videos on the Internet is probably aware, the pickings are slim; for every professional video and magazine channel, there are hundreds of shaky, unsteady camera phone videos of cars that deserve so much better. And on Vimeo, where it’s easier to find professional videos, car films are almost nonexistent outside the occasional drift event and stanced piece.
To that end, my goal with HittingRedline is to create films that do justice to their vehicular subjects. To create videos that capture what is so appealing about cars to the enthusiasts. As a videographer from Vermont with my trusty Glidetrack slider and Canon T2i, I’ve begun to attend more New England shows, more races and hillclimbs, and found more interesting car stories in an effort to continue letting you watch these fascinating cars.
The videos on this website are currently from either summer-into-fall car show seasons or the newer (and soon to be extended) Real Drivers Series. The more recent selection of videos highlights the stories behind the cars and the connection between the cars and their owners. These films are also a great opportunity to see some of the surprising vehicles found in and around Vermont, from a Series 1 E-Type Roadster to a 500-horsepower SRT4. If you like what you see and have a rare car that you want filmed, let me know (the best way to do this currently is through my YouTube channel).
So, take a look around, watch a couple videos, enjoy the site, and feel free to spread the word.
