A STORY ABOUT PASSION

THIS IS A SHORT FILM I CREATED TO TELL THE STORY OF A CLOSE FRIEND’S PERSONAL JOURNEY, AS HE CUSTOMISED HIS VW BEETLE OVER SEVERAL YEARS. HE TALKS ABOUT WHY HE DID IT, WHAT HE LOVED ABOUT THE PROCESS, AND WHAT HE FOUND OUT ABOUT HIMSELF AND HIS CAR ALONG THE WAY.

I WANTED TO TELL A STORY ABOUT A VERY PARTICULAR SUBJECT, BUT TELL IT IN A WAY THAT APPEALS TO PEOPLE OUTSIDE OF THAT SPECIFIC SCENE. AND IN THIS CASE, I WANTED TO TELL A STORY THAT WOULD HOLD PEOPLE’S GAZE, REGARDLESS OF THEIR INTEREST IN THE CAR WORLD. I WANTED TO FOCUS ON THE COMMUNITY AROUND THE CAR. THE EXPERIENCES THAT DALE HAD GAINED AS A PRODUCT OF TAKING ON THE PROJECT. AND GENERALLY TELL A STORY ABOUT A CAR ENTHUSIAST IN A DIFFERENT WAY THAN ONE MIGHT TYPICALLY BE EXPECTING.
