Lunchy and the Punk

EDIT: Just added! Season 3, Choose Your Own Adventure Style Lunchy and the Punk extravaganza! Dig it!
Official Season 3 - "Lunchy and the Punk - UDrive" Choose Your Own RC Adventure Main Menu (1 min 11 sec)


Just got here to soak up info on quadcopters which I covet but do not have, but I thought I'd share the fruits of our last project, Lunch & the Punk Season 2 (season 1, just us bashing...) An Heroic and Epic Journey of Profound Historical Significance...
The playlist is here.

It's a serial narrative staring RC cars exclusively. Lunchy, a Tamiya Vanessa's Lunchbox Re-issue, The Punk a Tamiya Midnight Pumpkin Re-issue (and the truck I drove most often before we did a narrative series meaning I had to operate the camera instead of set it down and hit record) and their foils, a Tamiya DF-03ra with a beat up Celica body on it, and a TT-01R with a Subaru body on it.

These are my brother's RCs, I'm a below the line set worker in tv and film and I started filming my brother's trucks for fun and we started thinking, "Why don't we try and tell a story..." So, we did. And here it is.

We had some sweet locations (like an abandoned miniature golf course and the ruins of an early hydro-electric power plant) and good times. I hope you guys dig it, we just finished the season this week. Here are the individual episodes.

We had an awesome time doing it. If it picks up a following we have some more ideas that we're hoping to explore to raise our own bar.

Didn't want to make a separate thread since this one is one from the top.

Sorry man, if it makes you feel any better we've kind of become addicted to doing them.

My brother, the main driver/choreographer as well as co-writer and co-creator has been on tour (among other things, he plays in a working band), but we have been working on a follow-up to season 2 that we hope will be something just as fun.

EDIT: Also, for the heck of it, you can now download Episode 8: Breaking Point's rocking montage theme, "Monster Trucks (Yeah!)" for free here.

We completed Season 3, and trying to top last season's serial, we put together a "Choose Your Own Adventure" style video! Now you must help LatP get off the Island of the Forbidden Ritual, what path will you choose?

It took a little over 5 months to film, lots of footage. Cars, boats, planes. It has it all!
