The entirety of the races are analogue. It’s really physical, which was the whole point for me. There is still something unique about that which is real.quý khách hàng đã xem: Ken miles là ai

This was khổng lồ be an original, period, biopic shot in Southern California, with additional photography in Georgia & France.

It would require the recreation of period settings that spanned the landscapes of Southern California, Michigan, Florida, Engl&, Italy & France, & it would necessitate that we build và rent dozens of priceless 1960s race cars.

The screenplay by Jez và John-Henry Butterworth recounted the true story of visionary oto designer Carroll Shelby’s relationship with famed race oto driver Ken Miles, & their battle lớn build the revolutionary Ford GT-40 that took on the dominating Ferraris at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1966.

I found inspiration from several films from the 1960s: “Contempt” (1963) by Godard, “The Umbrellas of Cherbourg” (1964) by Jacques Demy, “Gr& Prix” (1966) by John Frankenheimer, và “Playtime” (1967) by Jacques Tati.




As I began assembling retìm kiếm photos of sleek race cars & exotic locales, a kaleidoscope of color emerged. I realized that the graphic spectrum of these cars would provide the rudder for the film’s color story.

Central characters in our story were the cars, and recreating them proved to lớn be an enormous challenge, as they could take several months each to manufacture. The actual race cars we sought were collector items worth tens-of-millions, and therefore not viable.

Total vehicle count came khổng lồ 416 including 34 custom-built race cars (playing as 55), race tư vấn trucks and period background types with their makes, colors, and interior details from five different countries! These played in 23 major scenes including four race events and multiple prototype and chạy thử runs, factory scenes & showrooms.

Every day yielded new details from historical photographs và interviews with restorers of the original race cars. We cross-checked this against inaccuracies in replicas và other restorations to find confidence in the most authentic appearance.

(Look for the “Gurney Bubble” on the #3 car driven by Dan Gurney/Jerry Grant & #2 oto piloted by Amon/McLaren, which is a heightened door bulge to fit Dan Gurney’s 6’-4” frame.)

Near downtown LA, a massive warehouse becameFord’s River Rouge Assembly Plant. 21 Ford Falcons were restored và dressed to lớn portray the various stages of automobile assembly.

The Rouge was the largest assembly line in the world during the 1960s.


Set Designer Rich Romig modelled the set in Rhinoceros, including what would be the VFX mix extension. A corridor of mid-management offices was built onto an existing mezzanine, overlooking three practical assembly lines. Extras were trained to install windshields, wheels, & body panels, và also paint parts in a practical spray booth.

James Mangold pushed for an immersive mix, so three assembly lines would ultimately be built and dressed with 21 Ford Falcons that were restored & painted with historical automotive sầu paint to lớn match the cool màu xanh da trời scheme of the Ford scenes.

“Hear that? That’s the sound of the Ford Motor Company out of business.”

Henry Ford II

From the cars to lớn the tracks to the Ford offices in Detroit, the period is brought lovingly back to lớn life with sharp, elegant detail. The film doesn’t simply look good, it captures the story of California in a period transition and a mix-mashing of cultural influences.

During our story, Ford occupies a monolithic building called “the Glass House,” designed in 1955 by Skidmore, Owings và Merril. It was a challege lớn find a locaiton that felt appropriate lớn that era.

Henry Ford II’s inner sanctum ultimately came to life inside a wood-paneled executive sầu suite at the Los Angeles Times building in downtown LA.

A reproduction oil painting of Henry Ford overlooked his sweeping office. We provided the requisite well-stocked bar, executive desk with built-in telephone, & plush seating area with nickel-plated floating shelves. A grid of dye-cast models of Ford’s greathử nghiệm automotive successes decorated the shelves, all in a custom pallet of cool grays and steely blues.

We recreated Ford’s Romeo Test Traông xã at the Porsđậy Experience Center in Carson where a Neutra-esque control building was built on a small knoll overlooking the thử nghiệm track. The building was designed in AutoDesSys’ form•Z by Set Designer Rob Woodruff and entirely prefabricated in our construction mill in San Fernanvị.

We also built a period-correct dynamometer lab, where engineers would kiểm tra Ford’s next generation gigantic V8 engine.

The dynamometer lab was extremely advanced for the mid-1960s, and could accurately simulate the stresses incurred by the GT-40s engine over the course of a 24-hour race.

As a counterpoint khổng lồ Ford, the Ferrari factory in Maranello, Italy had lớn be recreated.Southern California, Italian Style

Ferrari’s iconic red-brichồng gates were replicated in an existing courtyard at the Lanterman Facility in Pomona, with Enzo Ferrari’s office built with a picture window overlooking a courtyard overflowing with olive sầu trees, palms, & lavender.

The factories of Henry Ford & Enzo Ferrari were worlds apart. The signage was designed khổng lồ reflect each corporate culture. Ferrari’s factory revolved around the sleek world of European racing, & his cửa hàng was that of a bespoke craftsman.

Concept illustrator Scott Lukowski’s artwork helped sell the location to lớn the filmmaking team. A massive olive tree was dug into the courtyard, encircled by hundreds of Mediterranean lavender bushes.
