  1. A couple of days ago I went up into a local forest to search for a tiny old school. There are no location details online so it kind of was like looking for a needle in a haystack so finding something was better than nothing at all No, the music isn't from Psycho
  2. That includes all his research, interviewing four people & production. We also did a few publicity spots on radio.
  3. Just an update to you ObStarorz that over the last year I have converted a heap of Cave Clan radio interviews as well as the 2017 ABC Cave Clan documentary. The radio interviews might be a bit slow unless you have a connection to The Cave Clan or you're interested in Australian urbex history, but they can give you something to listen to as you fall asleep at night I've added random footage to the radio interviews. The ABC documentary is probably the best thing we've done. There's also a few Urbex clips that are not Cave Clan related that people seem to find interesting. I’ve also made a combined version of the ABC docco that has the credits cut out (other the first & end credits of the series) so it’s a bit easier to watch if you have a spare half an hour. Have a look at the YouTube page here > The CaveClanMedia I'm not trying to encourage people in the scene to engage with the media. Most of our stuff was done when there was no urbex or internet and we were trying to build the scene. The ABC documentaries (5 x 7 min episodes) reveal a different side to the Cave Clan and don't reveal anything in regards to actual exploring. If only one of you take a look then my job here is done
  4. Thanks for the embed. I attempted to do it but got puzzled and tired Much appreciated. It was made by a friend at ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) so he had access to some good equipment. From start to finish it was probably about 6 months work. I had a ball. I recorded the voice over for the comic strip in a recording studio, got to see some pretty cool things in an old TV studio (since shut down) and just being involved in all the behind the scenes stuff was great. Thanks bud Doug Thanks bud
  5. Not the greatest photos ever, but yeah... mine are the after shots (shown first) and the before shots (shown after) are 25 years old and not mine. I hope that all makes sense
  6. Yeah, I get what you're saying. I do the side by side thing sometimes on my instagram account. I guess I'm just a video person. Hardly anyone sees them but I've been doing this for 35 years & I guess I'm just trying to get it out there the way I know best rather than it all dying with me. Thanks for the question ?
  7. Just added this here as it's not really worth a separate thread. Cheers Oblivinators!
  8. Made by a bunch of Melbourne Cave Clan members and used by even more Melbourne Cave Clan members. It was so much fun. Definitely worth doing on a waterway near you It's a bit epic, but maybe someone out there will enjoy a look.
  9. I totally agree with the music. The previous raft trips had that song as an unfortunate anthem. I think it was originally played as a laugh and got out of hand. So yeah, it's a bad tradition It did take a while. I started with 80 minutes of footage. Even gathering it took awhile. Maybe people should mute the first two minutes Cheers
  10. Too lazy to walk down stairs or straighten my camera.
  11. Details in video. DeScent drowned tragically (is there any other way) in a Brisbane drain as a result of a flash flood. [youtube=
  12. This 1 minute clip was shot yesterday. Better with audio.
  13. Hardly worth posting this, let alone in a new thread, so for those of you that remember the first commercial Cave Clan song (there have been three now), the singer Mick Thomas was on the radio so I sent a text in asking what inspired him to write the song.
  14. A one-minute insight into my lunch break.
  15. I just put this one together tonight. It's 12 minutes long and is shot in drains (turns around to see auditorium doors swinging shut as last urbexer flees), but hopefully someone watching gets something out of it. WARNING! It's probably not the greatest representation of urbex and it does contain some bum cheeks and some muffled crude language, but most of it is just people having a good time.
  16. Some other stuff from our visit to Adelaide. I'm sure you've all experienced this... The soundtrack on this one will make your ears bleed. Or you'll fall asleep. A 30 second clip on the hazards of videoing people playing Pokémon in public. You shall not pass... I don't think anyone will handle a minute of this clip let alone 8 minutes
  17. I just went through another old VHS tape and converted a few clips Trains... (blocked in Germany and probably on mobile phones) In-house clip... SK8 or DIE!
  18. Just chucked this one together tonight.
