WEEKEND EDITION: How to make a video of Ebisu’s Drift MatsuriOctober 18, 2009 12:29 pm
Pay attention. It is possible to make an interesting drift video that contains closeups of weeds blowing in the wind.
This video was made by a guy called Eiji from the Australian team Red Stage (here’s a pic), and a member of my old club, Initial Drift. He came to the last summer drift matsuri with a couple of other guys and pretty much had a camera in his hand the whole time.
Keep an eye out for the “Team Mad Max” Skyline, especially at 3:35 where I actually make a somewhat decent run on Minami! Also, the guy I shake hands with is Luke Fink, the recent winner of the Australian drift championship, after we won the Drift Land twin competition.

Team Red Stage for the win!!!!
I kept telling Eiji how awesome that video was and he didn’t believe me UNTIL he saw it on Noriyaro 😀
great video ! I like your hat !
The song and video was really nice, not bad at all. Happen to know what is the name of that song?
Also, the blue S14 @ 1:26 was just dope. (was it Rii-chan by any chance?)
Great video ^^
very cool video, only thing i didnt like was the song but we all have different taste.
the blue s14 in there was that um ‘rii-chan’ from a previous video u’ve posted?
Eiji did an awesome job and looks like he got HEAPS of footage!
damn you really hate those weeds dont you Alexi! haha
damn that was a good vid
Thanks for the kind words.
I’m really happy that you posted the video on your website!
P.S. I included the closeup bit towards the end just for you :P.
Love it!! Makes me wish I was there!
heck yes! this is where its at! personally i MUCH prefer this video to sooo many other slow motion slow vids.. this was like looking at a whole lot of awesome drift pics, but with video! and i kinda like the fact its all hand held, was hoping for a little more incar action but awesome drift shots/location shots just kept coming! do u reckon it’ll be a new wave in drift video making? haha~
nice driving in that video too alexi!! the skyline will be missed 😉
Rad. I wish I was there…
I love the drift missiles. Nice skills Alexi.. You’re famous!! I keep seeing you in videos lol.
that was .. beautiful :’)
this video lightened up my day here in rainy New England
Sweet video!! By the way do you happen to know the title of the music (sounds something like Bennie K).
amazing video, so simply, no effects and works perfectly…
actually about the drifting and not cinematographic skills.
Great video man
what kind of camera were you using?
now that’s a drift video! pure action…we need more of this stuff
wow awesome video indeed easily one of the best drift vids to hit the internet recently also interested in the song name sweet beat
I see you rob….
I liked this video a lot. The music was nice and uplifting and the footage was pretty good too.
I cross linked it on my site. Thanks for the vid, nice work!
Best drift video to date.
this is by far the best drift video i have ever watched!!!!
nice work alexi, we miss ya back in oz. Good to see fink havin a crack at ebisu. Get him to come over for tengoku! prob one of the aussies that could qualify!
ive seen a few vid’s from that matsuri and thats by far the best one so far. its cool to see bits thrown togeather to see what your mates have done or some massivly artsy vid with slowmo and real time taken for each shot… but none of them make me want to go as much as this one has. super pumped for spring matsuri now!!!
awesome stuff, it’s great to actually see things in regular-motion, and not only that, with audio! ;D
props once more on the mad max appearance
Also i should stop commenting before seeing the whole video 😛
That in-car shot is super tight, that *was* you right, Alexi?
The only drifting i’ve done was with a GTI in snow-covered parking lots haha (the scene isn’t so great here in Ontario). i love getting a chance to see what the real thing looks like in-car, and having driven a couple R32’s it looked a little familiar 🙂
Again, amazing vid and definitely would like to see more in this vein!
@Peter of A.
A lot of people like that hat for some reason.
@Muzaffar & DAN-XIII
Yes it was.
Yeah, that was me, with Eiji behind the camera.
I would’ve commented earlier but too busy watching this vid every hour when I get bored working… awesome video. Makes me want to make my car actually drivable so badly. Thanks for posting!
if i went to japan i would want to experience this
fingers crossed ill have enough $$$ to go with my mates next feb!!!
GREAT video. Captured the culture very well i feel, and i loved the music. awesome job.
Dispite of the great video, theres 1 question left, alexi:
Whats the name of the track playing in the background?
what sond it is? superb video!
name of the song for all those that asked
Promise - MiChi
Can’t believe I haven’t wathed this until now, amazing 😀
I really think the music sucked. but video five stars
*tina* thanks a lot
Ahh, seems like yesterday i gave eiji’s R31 a run, still got the footage. so young. Good work guys, living the dream.
Rad vid man! Got the drift bug running through my veins again, and wanting to go back to JP.
Awesome video, the Japanese seem to take drifting really seriously but at the same time have a relaxed attitude to there cars and crashing them. People in the UK seem to forget that Drifting is about having fun!
Great to see some tramp/missile drifters getting a proper hammering the R32 at the end is great 🙂
