Hey guys! My name is Chris, you know, the new intern here at Grassroots? I know you guys haven't heard or seen much of me, but I promise I've been hard at work making videos for the magazines. Check it out yourselves. https://www.youtube.com/user/GRMtv/videos That link will send you to our constantly updated YouTube channel. If you like them, tell me. If not, tell me. Let's make this fun!

Wow. They let you out of the van, eh?

I've been a subscriber your GRM's YouTube page for a while. Fun content, looking forward to more!

Hey Chris, mark July 29th on your calendar for a Deland autocross. Anybody at the magazine will show you the way, it's only 15 minutes from the office.

I won't be there (in the Bahamas for the weekend), but if you get totally hooked, I'll see you in OCCC on August 9th.

Chris, you may be just the guy to ask...
At the $2014 Challenge I competed with the Infiniti Q45. During the Concourse portion, JG shot video of our entire judging presentation. He shot this with what looked like a large-ish Sony Camcorder (not a SLR camera.)

This video has never surfaced.
Are you the man to find it?

Thanks in advance.

Shouldn't your title be "InternDork"?

Welcome. I'll check out the videos tonight (YT blocked at work).

Be creative. Is there still a GRM Podcast going? Use similar ideas. Even if it's walking around the office berkeleying with people and pissing them off (of course being on topic with motorsports of some type would always be preferable). If you're having fun, so are your viewers. After all. I ran a majorly unsuccessful motorsports show for a year. I know what I'm talking about.

We actually talked about doing that in a recent meeting. Pretty much walking around the office with a camera being weird.

Camera in the office is just in-jokes that only the cool kids get and angry people throwing coffee cups at the intern - which is funny for approximately 3.2 seconds.

See Mighty Car Mods and Roadkill for car based webisodes with some real substance and staying power. Both are available on Youtube.

We can do something like this too. Jokes around the office never hurt anyone! We'll see what I can do!
