The long-awaited follow-up to the first installment. This video continues the horror-inspired, theatrical slow-motion – while trying to keep the “sequel” status from collapsing into common franchise stereotypes that the horror genre is known for.Principal photography for this project was plagued with technical difficulties from the start. Cameras falling off cars, HDD cameras shutting themselves off before every run, lens issues, focusing problems… it was all there. While this video didn’t quite live up to my personal expectation and original creative vision… it did turn out well.
This video is a super-short and sweet attempt at making a drift video unlike any other I have made before. All the on-car footage is shot from cameras mounted on other drift cars during multi-car tandem. I wanted it to feel very theatrical… and the soundtrack by John Carpenter helps tremendously. The DriftMechaniks were on a murder spree this weekend… so it seemed all-but fitting.
