Unprofessional Driver on an Open Course

As most of you probably got tired of hearing from me, I recently got to shoot a commercial/internal branding video for a regional arm of Chevrolet. While most of the day was consumed with my usual on-set shenanigans/notes (“hit your mark,” “memorize your lines,” “stop overacting”), one aspect that was new to me was “acting” with a car — I still had to hit a mark and face a certain direction, etc. Except now I was doing it with a three ton vehicle and oh by the way there’s a camera guy’s head next to the pile of leaves you need to drive through, so make sure you don’t crush his head in the process. You know, the kind of thing you’d trust a semi-professional, mostly amateur actor to do.

Well anyway, after a long and fun day of shooting (a day totally free of head-smashing, I might add), we came out with some pretty good material. None of which I’m allowed to show you for copyright reasons. What I can show you, however, is a behind-the-scenes look at my debut as a stunt driver. And remember kids, always wear a seatbelt.

 


Cheers,
Dustin
