So, it’s here. The year that Doc and Marty went 30 years into the future to discover what amazing advances have been made by the human race. Flying cars, hoverboards, and all manner of technical advances including control over the weather. Well, here we are to prove that film makers best guesses are no better than ours at predicting the future. There have been some amazing advances though with telecommunications and the world wide web being truly jaw dropping. It never ceases to amaze me that every week now there is some incredible technical advancement. I still hanker after that elusive hoverboard though. Now where did I put that drawing board ??
Coming soon to a TV set near you is the Delorean Timecar featuring in a popular motoring pogramme. Filmed in the depths of Autumn ( or Fall if you are reading his in the States ) two very shiny cars compete to see which one is the most futuristic. Roll on March 2015 to find out !
Carfest South had a lot to live up to after the huge success of the North event. It didn’t disappoint with some great cameo moments by the Delorean Time machine. There were many highlights as you can see in the video link below but being invited by the BBC One show to feature in the live broadcast along with Chris Evans Le Ferrari was up there. Gosh that Delorean is amazing !!
What a fantastic weekend at CarFest North. It took place at Oulton Park race circuit. So many memorable moments. Thanks to Erin ( daughter ) there were lots of laughs and an extra dimension to the whole weekend with “Paul” the Alien coming along for the trip. With a walk from the campsite to the racetrack through a cornfield there was an amazing oppportunity to get some stunning Alien photos. Paul……He’s so rude ! With the BTTF Delorean being in the movie car entry there was plenty of opportunity to mix with the celebs and get access to areas off limits to the public. Below is our downsized video to give an idea of the weekend. And the best bit. We get to do it all again in two weeks time for the South festival in two weeks time !! Awesome !!!
The Olympic village was the venue for a promotional video featuring the newly formed McBusted pop band, formerly McFly / Busted. Filming went on until 3am with the Delorean Timecar exiting from the back of a truck billowing smoke as in the famous entrance from Doc Brown’s truck in 1985. The finished video should be airing next month and promises to be really cool. Can’t wait.
Tangmere was a very famous place as it was a front line airfield in WW2 and played a big part in the Battle of Britain. Fast forward in time 73 years and a lone time travelling Delorean sits on the airfield surrounded by a huge expanse of concrete. From a distance it looks like it has just arrived from another time with smoke billowing from the car. “ACTION”. As the smoke thins a figure appears from the cabin and delivers a faultless narrative about the delorean and its role in Back to the Future. “CUT”. A perfect take and one which the Director admitted was fantastic. As I have come to expect, however, it was deemed necessary to take one more. By the fifth take the Narrator was fluffing the odd line, which was hardly surprising as the continuous effects of smoke from inside the car was taking its toll. Finally the Director was satisfied that the BBC presenter was truly done like a kipper and deemed the scene finished. It never fails to amaze me how much filming it takes to do 20 seconds of TV. Can’t wait for the 4 part series to come out though as the title is right up my street, and if you are reading this, yours too. It’s going to the good old USA first , in April , but will be screened here afterwards. Mmmmmm, cant wait
Had a couple of pictures in the local newspapers this last week. One was a wedding and the other a prom. It’s always nice to these articles as they are not instigated by me but by the editors who see the Delorean Time machine as special and newsworthy
