MAKING MERCEDES AMG C63

NEVER STOP CHALLENGING

This car is quite extraordinary! Now I get why AMG drivers love their cars so much. I had no idea the engines sounded so powerfull. Anyway, this story is about a little kid who, without knowing, is actually the future AMG driver. He’s always challenging himself to go just a little bit further, pushing himself just that little bit more. His mother, on the other hand, shakes her head in desperation on seeing how he inevitably ends up battered.

YOUR LIFE IS YOUR LIFE

(Charles Bukowski)

I love this poem. It speaks about taking your life in your hands and know that there is light at the end of the tunnel, don’t give up. I thought it exemplified the kids determination perfectly, don’t give up until you are who you want to be.

These pics below are just some portrait shots I did of two crew members and my brother who showed up at the shoot with my nephew, Gavin and Oona my niece.

476 horses (thats the real HP of the C63)

We shot in loads of different locations and one of them was a stable outside Barcelona. Its always challenging to make the tight timings work, this time we were able to spend a whole afternoon shooting various different scenes of the kid in these stables.

BE ON THE WATCH THERE ARE WAYS OUT

These ones show the different types of locations we used. Thanks to MAMA TEAM, the local service company in Barcelona, Ottar Gudnason, always great to work with and Patrick Plogstedt, Producer.

THE GODS WILL OFFER YOU CHANCES

Love the chance to direct these types of jobs and above all meet all the different people who come and go.

IT BEATS THE DARKNESS

 

THE GODS WAIT TO DELIGHT IN YOU

So, the client, Sabrina was just great. Its a real pleasure working for a client like AMG who loves each and every moment of the shoot and is constantly up for filming more and more.

 Here’s the spot finally finished!
