You want Fast and Furious videos? I've got 'em. I've now posted a dedicated page just for video content I'm producing related to the "making of" the movies. The idea is to put all the content in one location for easy reference. Enjoy!
John Cena Joins Fast & Furious 9
It's official, folks: John Cena is in per a Tweet he made in early June, 2019. What does this mean for the storyline? That's anyone's guess, at this point although die-hard fans of the franchise are praying to God that the franchise will move away from the James Bond bullshit and get back to its roots: the car culture. I wrote about this back in September 2018 - Read it HERE - but I have to think that Vin Diesel is smart enough to listen to feedback from fans. I also have a hunch that the franchise is still struggling to close the unanswered questions about Brian's character. I'm hoping that in the last movie, Fast 10, we get some closure. I truly believe the franchise has to come full circle and as we've learned from other lessons in Hollywood, that often means passing it on to the next generation. Since Dom and Brian's characters both have kids, it would be great to see their passion for cars passed along to those kids in some way. Whether that wil happen or not is anyone's guess, but even if it's the last few minutes of the last movie, I think that would be a
Why GT-R Skyline Prices Are Rising
Another one of my favorite questions - this one shouldn't seem hard to understand, but as evidenced by the flood of messages I get daily on this topic, it's a mystery. Let's Start With Supply and Demand Oh, that simple principal that all first-year economics students learn. As a refreshers, the law of supply states that the quantity of a good supplied (i.e., the amount owners or producers offer for sale) rises as the market price rises, and falls as the price falls. Conversely, the law of demand (see demand) says that the quantity of a good demanded falls as the price rises, and vice versa. How does that apply here? Let's talk exclusively about the R34 GT-R (and if we have to, GTTs). The R34 has not been legal in the USA since the MotoRex scandal back around 2006. If you forgot what that was all about CLICK HERE If you DON'T read the referenced article, you'll have no idea what led to this situation. Regardless, they're not legal until 25 years after the date of manufacture. In other words, if you want any 1999 Skyline, GT-R or otherwise, you're not getting one here LEGALY under 2024. Period. Take this as a fact so that we can
Behind the Scenes – 2 Fast 2 Furious
This behind the scenes 2 fast 2 furious video showcases so many of the tricks used to produce this movie. What was really interesting is how primitive CG was beack in 2002/2003. I worked closely with Al Desario in this film (among others) as we prepared the cars for their big stunt scenes. Enjoy the Video
