Charlotte and I put the ‘van on a boat to France then drove to Spa Francorchamps for the F1 grand prix. Stayed at the incredible Eau Rouge campsite and watched from the famous Eau Rouge corner (five miles away).
Despite my protestations that Fanny the Tranny isn’t a load-lugger, some people wear me down and get through to my better nature. One of those people is artist Janet Bates who persuaded me to take her enormous stag beetle into Peterborough for the Green Festival. Bonkers.
Spent a day in the Welland Valley with work experience student Chelsea Neil. Shot lots of van clips in nice locations. That was yesterday.
Today we went to Thorpe Hall in Peterborough and shot the film kit sequence, followed by half an hour shooting tracking from the car of designer/photographer colleague Steven Booth.
The finished video will be posted here, and everywhere, as soon as it’s ready.
Yesterday we made a start on our in-house promo film, driving to Great Yarmouth and turning left on the north Norfolk coast road. Stayed at Walcott and had a great breakfast at the cliff top cafe in Overstrand. I made a film but haven’t had time to edit it yet. You might read that a lot on here.
Spent the rest of the day testing in-car rigs for filming the promo and other driving shots.
If we went to Barnsley to film the fitting of a manhole cover, but we went in the manhole delivery vehicle and not Fanny the Tranny, does it count as a campervan film?
Thought not. Here’s a photo, though:
