Thanks, Morgan/John!

It was a lot of fun shooting, but also a lot of downtime. I'm pretty happy with the result, despite some cut&paste of the audio making me sound a little weird and say some odd things.

Overall though, I think it portrays the Seven in a pretty accurately. I hope it holds it's own next to some of the more prestigious cars they've featured.

You actually sounded like you know what you're talking about :P
Filming and photoshoots always take much longer than people expect, often with a lot of standing around. How did they find you?

Inspired me to take the car out today .

Morgan - actually through my instagram account.

I've heard from a couple people it inspired them to take a drive, which is the best compliment I could get.

Regarding the BC post - we'll have to get you in the car soon! I could probably write a diatribe - but they are completely different. Quick in their own ways, but sound and feel is decades (obviously) apart. Your car is composed, direct, nimble. It has a lot of power, relative to the torque where as my car has a lot of torque relative to the power output. My car is a little less direct, more alive feeling. It doesn't give you the same confidence at the limit, but rewards with wonderful 4 wheel drifts. Yours is also 1000% better on rough roads.

Gorgeous car, G-man. The correct (or at least correct looking) headlights really add to the look, IMHO. Sounds good, too. I've said before, great cars appeal to four out of the five senses. But to be fair, I've never even tried to taste one.

Superb short film. Loved it
Great car!
It was fun recognizing all the roads and locations. Also really nice to see a seven video with pro sound where you can really hear the engine properly instead of just wind buffeting and distortion like on so many.
Thanks for sharing that!
