Many people have said to me that Retro Roadmap would make an excellent TV show, but it’s taken Mod Betty a few years to get her courage up to put herself in front of one of them moving-picture type cameras.( Heck, it’s only with the encouragement of Charles Phoenix that I started putting myself in more of my post photos, and since there wasn’t a total recoil in horror I thought, why not try the TV?)
So when our awesome pal Rob from Bystander Productions (who did a great job on Retro Roadhusband’s music video) was interested and available, I thought, why not put together a pretend version of what I would want a Retro Roadmap TV show to be like. My fab pal Tim P. Credle was game enough to accompany me, on a fab vintage bike tour of Rehoboth Beach, with stops at some of our fave places.
You can see the results below!
While I’m full of lessons learned from this self-invented project (stand up straight, write a script, wear lipstick, allocate more time than you think you need, confirm that folks are available for interviews, etc. etc.) the main lesson I learned was that it was actually wicked fun, and I look forward to shooting the next episode!
P.S. – how could I neglect to mention that the music for this was done by my very own Retro Roadhusband aka Cliff Hillis. It’s a family affair…!
