I’ve produced a new classic car film, and I’m not sure how we got here.
It’s been one heck of an adventure so far, producing motoring films, car reviews and petrolhead adventures for the past seven years.
In that time, I’ve filmed 45 videos, and my YouTube channel has clocked up over 2 million views!
In 2013 I had a Peugeot 205 GTI sat in the garage, and was curious as to how possible it would be to make a video review of the car, using only my iPhone – no microphone, stand or anything.
Not much has changed in the way I produce my films – my actual phone still doubles up as camera, though I now airdrop all shots to an iPad to edit, and I use a GoPro for the odd shot – particularly in-car.
I’ve received a lot of support, without which there’s no way I would have been able to put such a library of videos together.
Thanks to the people who have trusted me with their cars, the people who have driven for me, the people who have watched and shared my videos, and above all my wonderful family for their faith in what I’m doing.
I stopped producing the films for a while, as I needed to refocus and understand why I make them. And I realised it’s because I simply enjoy driving cool cars, and sharing the experience of motoring with like-minded enthusiasts.
If that’s you – I hope you’ll join me on the next part of the adventure.
Here’s my new film, starring the Alfa Romeo Alfasud…
