Street Racing in Tokyo. This is a little film I made with a friend called Mr Brooks, a big Japanese sports car fan and owner. He had imported a few cars from Tokyo and got talking with the exporter about making a film. We went over to Tokyo for 5 days and 4 nights with our box of tricks, (Car mounts, Sony PD150 and some Super 8 kit - Beaulieu 4008ZM4 and Nizo 156, loads of lenses, Glidecam and some lipstick cameras) to make the film. We filmed street racing on the C1, Drifting in the Hakone Mountains, visited a top Tuning shop in Tokyo (Top Secret), went to the car auctions and met plenty of young Japanese car owners. Basically we worked like dogs 24/7 and had a great time filming and driving some great cars in and around Tokyo.
Quite a lot of Super 8 material in this, Some shots using my old Glidecam 4000 Pro.
I really hope to get back to the city again soon.
