Hi, my name is Kenneth Collins, I'm an amateur still photographer, videogragher and a Ford Senior Master Technician with over 40 years of experience. I've built dune buggies, a Drag car and have been in the Street Rodding Hobby. My interest in videography along with my career as a Ford technician, has come together in my How To Video projects.
My first video was shot in 1998 on overhauling the C6 transmission. It was filmed with a Hi8 Sony camcorder and edited on very modest equipment. This video was produced in my garage at home with help from my daughter Krystal. The tranny I used belongs to Buzzy Vaughan a fellow Street Rodder who owns a parts coating business www.thermaltechcoatings.com. In fact the transmission case was coated by him. This ceramic coating is used on headers, intakes, valve covers and other engine parts to dissipate heat and it looks good too.
Since then I've made more videos using all digital film and editing equipment. I plan to produce one or two new "How To " films a year. I've tried to shoot the videos to show techniques and tips like I would have wanted to see when I was coming up in the car business. The videos are geared for both the hands on car guy and people who are always looking for more technical information.
