A scene for a new movie is being filmed in front of my house tomorrow. They are out there setting up today. Starting about 2-3 house to the right of mine and extending to about 2-3 house to the left of mine they are setting up a track in the street. The track will be used to run a car along that ends in a car crash at the end of the track 2 doors down. The movie is set in the 60s. When they started walking the neighborhood informing everyone what was going on I asked if they needed any period correct vehicle. They said yes. I was able to round up 5 of my car buddies and my truck and their cars/trucks will be parked on the street as background. 1963 Ford PU, 1966 Mustang, 1969 Mustang convertible, 1959 Willys Jeep, my 54 Stovebolt and if any of you remember the controversial former owner of the Cincinnati Reds, Marge Schott, her 1966 Corvette (a friend owns it). This has some big name performers. The headliner is Tom Hardy. I didn't know who he was until I looked up some of his movies. He has been in a lot of big name movies in recent years. This movie is about a motorcycle club that evolves into a motorcycle gang. It will be fun to see our cars in a movie scene and the one day vehicle rental fee isn't bad either.

Maybe I'm not looking in the right place on imdb, but I was hoping for a bit of a preview of the movie.

Help?

BTW ... that's very cool!

They just started filming this past week. They probably don't have anything to show yet. Here is a video one of the locals made of a scene they were shooting last week. The theater is now a micro brewery but still has the old movie marque. As I mentioned in the original post it is set in the 60's You can see Easy Rider is listed on the marque as the current movie showing. I hope to get some video of the car crash scene tomorrow.

This could be posted in a private group. Let me see if I can get a copy that is accessible.

Cars in movies has been discussed several times with most agreeing if an active part it is a PITA. What everyone does agree on is the food catering service for movie making is superb.

Spot on, Evan. It was fun the first couple of times ... The first one we did was for a big budget Clint Eastwood Movie ("Flags of Our Fathers") Every cool thing we'd ever heard about being in the movies ... The last one we did was for Discovery ID and the "Food Catering" consisted of one of the producers running out to get a few Poppa John's pizzas which we all crowded around a picnic table to eat -- talent, crew and strap hangars... That was the one where TrknGMC's dad and I were cast as detectives on a stakeout (no dialogue, just a quick shot. No extra pay ...) Movie Catering -- outstanding. TV catering ... um ... yeah.

The thrill is gone...

I had posted this in the photo gallery with my truck. The ad agency for GM had contacted me about using my truck in the commercial. I asked for 12k and they agreed and also said that they would pay to have the truck transported to LA and back to FL. I had to have the windows black tinted and was told that I could not drive the truck in the commercial but could ride along. When I asked where my truck was going to be stored once it got transported to LA, things got vague. Since I didn’t like the answers that they were giving me, I declined to do it.

Howard Kieth , who has a 1936 GMC the same color as my truck, was contacted and he let them use his truck.

I later talked to a TV commercial director at a car show some time later and he told me that most of the ad agencies do not take care of the vehicles they use and would rather pay damages on the backside rather than take precautions to protect the vehicle in the first place.

The filming completed yesterday. A couple things. The filming was in front of my house so no craft services. I never even thought about it. I might have been able to sneak lunch if I had. They did not seem to have any concern about protecting my truck. they did not damage anything but I frequently saw crew members sitting on the bumper, leaning on the bed and using the bed as a dumpster for their empty water and soda bottles and snack wrappers. they did clean it out, kind of, at the end of the day. I still had to grab a couple empty water bottles. They stage my truck front and center for the crash. No doubt it is destined for Hollywood fame. The 5 friends and their cars I was able to get in the movie are happy with their one day paycheck. In the second image you can see a blue car backing out of a driveway behind my truck. A motorcycle will rear end the car and the rider flies onto the trunk and through the back window. Just a bit of trivia. The silver 1966 Corvette in the background was originally owned by the controversial owner of the Cincinnati Reds. Marge Schott.
