Just so there is no misunderstand about who Bootny Lee Presents is or what we do, I want to make it very clear that I am not even a slot car racer. I am simply a videographer that has returned to a hobby I once was a business operator and enthusiast for. I am no longer either of those things. But what I am about is filming slot cars and providing a different look at the hobby in a way to attract more people into this great hobby. Furthermore, I do not film exclusively to any sanction, manufacturer or group. I film slot cars. I will gladly film for any group, race, event or show within my means.
This being said, I have received some rather rude, inappropriate, spiteful and downright childish responses to my videos based on the contents and the association of the videos. As I am doing this almost completely out of my own pocket and time, at what would otherwise cost an absorbent amount of money to employ such services, I will not tolerate this kind of hateful feedback because you have issues with other people in the industry. I have no issues with anyone and am willing to work with any persons, groups or sanctions that afford me the same respect I am willing to give them.
COMMENTS WELCOME. DON'T ALLOW INDUSTRY BIAS KEEP YOU FROM ENJOYING GOOD VIDEOS!

Working on MASCAR DVDs and will be available soon. The rest of the Nats videos will be done shortly after and to be followed with a DVD. T-shirts from the Nats are still available and can be obtained by email Mark Smith at email@example.com.
Great video; sorry to read you are getting problems from certain circles. Seems that ANY visual promotion of this hobby would be a good thing, but then again, we do have those with agendas, don't we?
Yeah, that does seem to be the case. Thanks for the comments. My only agenda is to film as much of the hobby as possible in all its aspects. I will gladly films shows, document the process of organizing events, races, club and group functions and events, product reviews videos, Enthusiast get-together and even manufacturers' inside look to the building process of their products if they allow. There are infinite possibilities with video and I offer my services at a HUGELY discounted rate. As a matter of fact, I am willing to offer all the man hours spent filming and then editing the videos of the events for FREE as long as the organizing group covers my travel expense to attend the event to be filmed. So, if a group paid for the means for me to arrive (gas/plain ticket, lodging and meals), I would do the hours of exclusively filming and editing the videos, processing the video for distribution and then distributing the final product to multiple online mediums ALL FOR FREE, which is an exorbitant amount of money if contracted out the same way.
