Filming of the last part of the concept trailer takes place in a weeks time, and all the elements are lined up. The key set piece of the hero character is the car, the XB Falcon I searched high and low to find. I contacted the Ford forums of Australia, and I was pointed in the direction of Jef, who had an XB GT with a blown 351. Incredible car.

And this is our mechanical star, as important a character as the lead actor, and my DOP Kris Woldt is going to have a field day with filming the actors and the XB.
The cars owner Jef, is going to get the High Def footage of his car to do whatever he wants with, and he's driving over 200km to bring it to the location, I can't thank him enough for believing in what we're trying to do, making an awesome concept trailer to make people sit up and pay attention to the film idea.
The dedication of my actors is incredible, Imogen and Kazuya are travelling over 100km to the location, and Alec is coming all the way from Sydney. We all want this project to work! And we're all fighting toward that, which is the very reason I love films, people coming together to fight for an idea.
In more good news, Greg Van Borssum put his short film in the mail yesterday and it will be here soon, we're another step closer to getting this concept complete.
