|The +HighRPM crew filming on Season 1 of Autos & Angels|
This weekend we were kindly given permission to use an underground car park in the heart of the city for as long as we needed to film the shoot with Darwin girl Christie Petersen, our first ANGEL of season one.
In striking similarity to her "Angel" title, 28 year old Christie is a logistics co-ordinator for Careflight and co-ordinates all the aeromedical evacuations in the Northern Territory, she told us her dream job was actually in the same industry but she would like to be aircrew jumping out of helicopter to save lives. This is not the first time Christie has had the title of Angel bestowed upon her, co-incidentally she was one of "Amber's Angels" training with world champion fitness trainer and lifestyle coach Amber Walker and having been in front of my lens before as part of that team.
Christie was matched up with our first AUTO of the series, a supercharged six, the classic lines of the VG Valiant Ute owned by Rob Anderson, we filmed the driver sequences for the car a few weeks back and Rob was only too happy to bring in the ute for us and patiently help with the shoot for a few hours while we worked with our guest stylist Angie Barker from Faces Artistry.
You'd probably think that the underground garage would be a cool environment this time of year (It's monsoon buildup time of year in Darwin) but we spent much of the down time gathered around the fan that was being used to feather our model's hair!
Trying conditions to be sure but the crew got it done and we definitely got some great images and footage for the series.
