Chromjuwelen

  1. A short little project I shot in Romania about 2 years ago on one of the best mountain roads in Europe. Me together with a few friends and colleagues did the vfx, mostly after work hours with a last push being supported by the company we work for in terms of resources, budget for sound/music/ final grading and render power. I work as a supervisor at Flavor3d (rtt.ag/edm/flavor3d), the film and print division of RTT (rtt.ag).

    The material was shot in the course of 2 days from the back of my car with a Canon 5D. The idea came about while watching a comparison between the old 1970 Boss 302 and the new 2013 model. Unfortunately they discontinued the Boss model for 2014 which is too bad as it was a nice looking car.

    After finishing it, we were very fortunate to have these guys do the music and soundFx : soundadventures.tv/ Very cool company to work with.

    The grading was done by Peter at scanwerk.de/ , another amazing post production house in Munich.

    From the CG side here are the people that worked on it:

    Shooting: Adi Chifor, Gabi Chifor, Codrin Chifor, Florin Borlan, Marius Satmarean
    Designs: Adi Chifor, Egon Bachmann
    Model&Texture: Radu Arsith imdb.com/name/nm5615709/, Dan Nanu nanudan.weebly.com/index.html, Paul Paslea

    Editing: Adi Chifor, Jan Kiesel

    From Cape Town, South Africa.
    A rainy day with the Benz (a.k.a Mila) was not suppose to be a rainy day at all. The weather took a turn for the worst and we decided to continue. It didn't turn out too bad I think. Hope you can dig it.

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.
