Boat Marketing Videos

We are producing marketing videos for those who are in the business of selling boats.  These short (2 1/2 minute) movies are custom produced for each boat and include both still and video action photography.  The photography is done from our chase boat on Lake St. Clair, Michigan.  We need 2 to 3 hours of time on the water and a driver for the boat being photographed.  These films can be uploaded to a seller's website or YouTube channel where potential buyers can view them.  Aerial video footage from a quadcopter drone is available as an option.
A sample film can be seen here:

Speeding Away-Two Wooden Speedboats

Here is an interesting photo of two antique, wood speedboats that was shot from behind as the boats were speeding away.  The styling and curves of the boats are more noticeable when seen from the rear.  The camera lens was only a few inches above the water and from that low angle the horizon is mostly hidden.  Some of the detail of the decks and cockpits is not visible but we like the drama that the low angle give us.  Both boats are triple-cockpit runabouts; one is 28 feet and the other is 30 feet.
100-400 zoom lens at 321mm, 1/1250 second at f/5.6, ISO 250.
