I'm making a short film about a famous runner from the mid-1960s. Thing is, he ran on cinder and dirt tracks his entire career. I want to know if any of you guys have run on those kind of tracks and if so, what did they feel like? How did it sound when you were taking a step? What did they look like up close? What were they made of?
I'm figuring out on how I want to shoot this, I have 3 options
1. Shoot a video of the runners on a 400m track and CGI it to look like a 440y Cinder track
2. Find one of the few cinder tracks still in existance
3. Cover a 400m track with cinders or dirt
