You are correct, Sir. Port Townsend hosts a fabulous Kinetic Sculpture Race on the first weekend of October -- 20-plus years now. I make it up there roughly every other year. (850 miles each way).
My friend the film maker's name is Oli (Oliver). Oli filmed all the Kinetic Sculpture Races from Port Townsend to Northern California over a year and a half, with two cameras. Sometimes, one of the cameras was mounted on my Racing Sculpture (the one in my avatar) -- when Oli himself was onboard.
I think he is still editing all this footage, but he has already assembled several films and won an award or two.
I am convinced Oli would be a good fit for Burning Man. His main concern is his worry about his expensive cameras.
What I was thinking, Captain, was that if you build Ludwig Von Prudhomme, Oli might want to drop in during the construction process for some how-it-was-created footage.
