What do you do for a living really? Seems like you have access to some really choice wheels!

I'm a Ferrari parts manager, but i help out with the racing stuff. my claim to fame is the shell oil advert, we did the bit in Rio (has anyone here seen it? it's an amazing ad, turn the volume up!)

actually just found the ad on youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=39uqfnW1wS8

would anyone like to see some of the behind the scenes photos and prep work?

Awesome Vid link m8y. I just sat here with goose bumps, on goose bumps, on goose bumps. What a 'rorky' sound.

Brilliant & good luck in Germany too.

In your top picture, heh, ...I've stood in that workshop loads of times! :drool: You're a lucky, lucky git, being in there all the time. :mrgreen:

HadnŽt seen that one before. Very cool. Were you behind the scenes here?

we only went to Rio (Bob is driving the car) with the 1997 Schumacher car, you have no idea how much work went into those few seconds of film, but it was very, very cool to do, we also supplied the Monaco car but we didn't go, have you ever tried to find a sticker that covers a sticker, that won't peel off with speed yet can be removed leaving no residue or damaging the original artwork underneath? lol that took some sorting, also try importing nitrogen bottles to start an f1 car into Brazil! really difficult until you say "Ferrari F1 car driving down your beach front" then they become helpful lol

@kin,
it is a great vid isn't it? helps having no music and no narration (until the end) just the pure engine sounds.
and all of those pics were taken in that famous workshop buddy (the car transporter is inside :wink: )

Do my eyes deceive me, or is that a 288 GTO on the bridge in the second photo? :drool: :inlove: :drool:

My favourite Ferraris are from the 80s (when I was a kid), and the GTO is on top of that list (followed by the 328 and Testarossa). If I could take that car for a spin it would leave me a much happier person....

That is indeed a great video. I can only imagine the fun you all had spending time filming Ferraris. :)

One question. Was this video made before or after Honda's? Very similar concept of racing a companies vehicles through the ages.

There is nothing like the feeling you get watching a video that you were personally involved with. Well... when the end result is good. Years ago I had to rush out a video for a network broadcast show and we all knew it was bad. I did at least manage to avoid going to the show where it was being displayed so I wasn't implicated. ;)

:shhh: it was after the Honda one, but don't tell anyone, the honda one was based on a Fiat one from years ago, again :shhh: this is all insider stuff :wink:

I agree but then it would also depend on the type of films being made :drool:
