    It’s a sunny Sunday in November. Riding shotgun in an old Alfa roadster we pull into a service station with a pack of vintage sports cars in tow, up to our elbows in smiles and road grime. My phone vibrates, my driver's phone vibrates, I look up to see the other drivers reading their phones. Jordan is dead.

    Jordan, a man who poured every last ounce of his being into creating a machine that matched his hunger to drive. We spent most of the previous days together riding along in his beautiful 911, talking love and life and cars and listening to the wind. And recording. His final thoughts and last tour captured on film.

    This is 'What a Ride', a tribute to Jordan Hilsenbeck.

  2. An industrial building is surveyed by Hunter, an expeditioner-alike old man, who follows the behavior of a lonely child.
    When the child is discovered yells a wild mechanical scream and runs away into the building, all the way to a parking lot, and disappears.
    Thru the observation of his daily life, Hunter will learn the nature this wild child and the relation that made his survival feasible. The beauty in its abnormality.

    This is a revision of The Jungle Book, a classic story we've all grown up with... Put into the nowadays context of machinery taking over so many of our human roles.
    We draw the change from the initial fear of the weird and the unknown. Thru witnessing reality we evolve to understanding, caring.
    It's just a little simple story that may leave the audience thinking what should happen next, and its implications.

Life is too short for ugly cars.

Safe. You can choose your means of getting around by price-performance ratio, trunk capacity or color. Or by breakdown statistics. Of even by fuel efficiency. Now that's really safe. And rational. But you can also let your heart and the gasoline in your blood carry you away. That's passion.

Chromjuwelen.com (Chrome Jewels) sets off with the passion that steers you off the safe path into the irrational lane. The community that meets and exchanges info every day on the internet portal has it's high-octane outing behind it. And often makes everything associated with it—choice of music, clothing and colorful skin—part of their lifestyle. With all the consequences. And a lot of self-confidence.

    After a life changing motorcycle accident Steve was paralyzed from the waist down. His love of cars and more importantly Porsche's put him back in the drivers seat. Using hand controls, he is driven by a passion to once again become whole. A big part of the journey has been learning to drive again. His love of Porsche's is only eclipsed by his determination to not be limited by his handicap.
