BIKE SHED: UNLOCKED
Our annual Bike Shed London Show has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 outbreak, but the show must go on, so we’ve created Bike Shed: Unlocked. For the first time ever we are hosting a digital motorcycle show via our social media platforms (YouTube, Facebook and Instagram), and we want to feature you and your custom motorcycle!
All we need is a short, simple video of you with your bike. (Note: These videos are not expected to be professional by any means … iPhone or GoPro video is great!) Simply press record and tell us about yourself and your build. If you’re wondering what to say, try imagining that you’re out for a ride, and when you stop to refuel, someone approaches you to ask:
Who are you, and what inspired this build?
Are you a professional builder, or a shed builder?
How did you start building/wrenching?
What was your inspiration for your build?
What are your favourite parts of the build, and what are most proud of?
What do you want people to remember you and your bike for?
What’s your next project?
What does it sound like? Show us!
Note: Since lockdown has been slightly relaxed, if you'd like to include riding footage, you now can.

(Chris took the higher end approach and edited this example on Adobe Rush iPhone app...he had some time on his hands! But even if your video is a super simple one-shot clip, we’re really excited to see what you send in!)
TIPS AND TRICKS:
You can upload from both phone and desktopPlease title your video your name and bike name as follows:
Example: Dutch_Someren_Ducati_Monster. mov - not applicable if uploading from phone.
NOTE: email and WhatsApp will compress your video if sending between devices we recommend airdrop if on iPhone.
Shoot landscape/horizontal; portrait doesn’t look good on YouTube!
Shoot in a well-lit area, and avoid noisy environments.
Be careful not to cover the microphone with your hand, and maintain a consistent distance from the camera to get the best audio.
Show the bike from multiple angles, and if you mention a specific part on your bike, try to get a detail shot.

NOTE: email and WhatsApp will compress your video if sending between devices we recommend airdrop if on iPhone.The earlier you submit the better your chance of acceptance.
We're really disappointed we can't share your bike physically, but this way we can still share your bike with everyone that wanted to see it, and more! We really appreciate you taking the time to build your bike for the Bike Shed show, and we hope Bike Shed: Unlocked can do your bike justice.
