Wish me luck!

I dunno if you guys have seen this on the car blogs yet...
http://www.cardesignfetish.com/2013/...nd-customizers

I also don't know if everyone remembers my back ground is as a car designer.

Well I submitted.

First it was a short bio on the website, a picture of myself, and some samples of my design work. No one needs to know my life story, but my short bio is kind of overwhelming to read(two time cancer survivor, loss of my older siblings, kicked around by the car industry etc).

Next day came an email that they were interested.

I had to fill out a huge application, literally my life story, crazy questions, more pictures of myself, more of my designs.

Ok.

Next day. Phone call from the casting director. Loved it. She set up a Skype interview-though not to be thought as an interview-just me myself-type of thing for Today.

That was going to be an hour this afternoon, but it turned into 2+, they literally could not imagine it all happening to one person and loved my story.

So now I am through to only the last 1-2 rounds.

I have to make a 20 minute video where I am in every frame, half about my life, half about cars-a bit of MTV Cribs style.

That video will be put on youtube and submitted for final casting.

I am putting this on the forum as I have a sneaking suspicion that with it being on youtube they will either have people vote or check how many hits the vids are able to generate.

Wow that's pretty cool! Congrats! I definitely think you will be great for the spot. Just remember: a car isn't a car without an alcantera headliner.

You definitely have my vote.

Thanks for all the support guys.

A lot of work to do before shooting the 20 minute video, lots of house cleaning and grooming the cars for the camera. It helps when your best friend is a videographer with his own production company who regularly shoots for all the big cables channels. So I will have professional people and equipment in use lol.

Cheater.

Kidding aside, that may well give you the last edge over your competition. Presentation counts!

Good luck in this final (?) round and definitely keep us posted!

It was not one sample, it's been hundreds at this point.

Everything from the cliche quick pen-napkin style sketch:


To illustration using old fashion paper, markers and paint:


To 3D modeling:


Plus tons of concept sketching done on paper which were too big to scan and put on the PC.

It's been overwhelming, just the back ground check was 25 pages. They literally want to know everything about me and see everything I have done. I showed them sketches from when I was 10 up to my 30's.

That Ferrari (Enzo?) is amazing. You are really talented. I could never do anything like that. Please share more when you get the chance.

Thanks!

Will do.

I just came up with the fun ending to the video.

I live at the end of a nice cul-de-sac. We start from my driveway and work into the house and cars. By the time come back out to say bye, in front of the house an impromptu mini meet of my Z-Club of M Coupes and Roadsters has shown up. Oh look-this just happened lol.

Point is, I have this car disease and all my friends have it too. Should be a memorable way to end instead of just saying good by and fade to black.

Here are a couple more concept sketches they just had me send in JPGs of:

Slight change to the ending...

After the camera pans to all of us and our cars, I say how it's a nice Sunday-cars are meant to be driven, I drive off leading everyone to follow as we head out for a cruise. Much more interesting than a static shot and camera gets to hear the cars
