On Wednesday the 27th of September, I was lucky enough to be involved in the filming of a short film for the Adelaide Motorsport Festival. The film was being made as an activation ad to build interest in the event. My involvement was to shoot behind the scenes video, help film the ad, as well as take photos and document the day. The film involved driving 3 F1 cars, a Superbike and a HDT Torana through Adelaide city streets at 10pm.
The whole film had to be kept a secret, the organisers didnt want the streets of the city lined with spectators, it wouldnt have looked natural in the film. That said, its hard to tell people to ignore the sound of a screaming v10 f1 engine.... the crowds did gather.
Luckily for me i had spent all day with the cars and bike, so had an oportunity to take some more artistic shots.
