They're gonna put me in the movies................perhaps !

#1 Post by Dave B » Tue Aug 21, 2012 9:44 pm

At the Tatton Park show last weekend, I was asked about the availability of a 1970's Triumph 2000 to be part of a film set in 1975 North West England recalling the Northern Soul music era.
They are also looking for other cars from late 60s to early 70s such as mk1 Cortina, Viva HB, early Transit van and a Hillman Avenger estate (good luck with that one !)
Anyway, with £100 per day expenses being mentioned and no-one else will need to drive the car I've put myself & NGO's name down !
Its being filmed in & around Bolton, only just up the road from me, in Sept & Oct, so we'll see what happens next.

Nice one Dave, don't get too upset though when they spray 'dirt' on the car for realism :wink:
Mr. Young was doing something like this earlier in the year with MSS, so I'm sure he can enlighten you some more.

Good for you Dave.£100 per day is very short of the mark,are you also getting all expenses?
Be prepared to have your car professionally "dirtied" as our cars are deemed too clean to meet the norm!
Is the car just being used as street furniture or being driven? If driven,be prepared to have a few cameras mounted on it--and also a few windows removed for film clarity!As you can imagine,this was not an option for my car,it would have been going home,no matter how much was in offer!!
Absolutely wonderful experience and you like me will be proud as punch!
My car was used in a film due to be released in March i believe with a cast including Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman.
My car was actually the car owned by the wife in the film,and was "driven" by her--and the actress was none other than Nicole Kidman herself!
Good Luck,Bill.

Dont know the exact details as yet Bill, but the same applies, nobody gets to abuse the car, or pull it to pieces, at any price, it wont be leaving my sight ! I dont really stand to be making anything from it as I will take time off work to be there.
As far as I can see, the only 'star' in the film is Lisa Stansfield, the 80s/90s singer.
Just going to Google 'your' film now, Bill :lol:
Is it by any chance 'The Railway Man' ?

See what you mean about the 'dirty pics', Bill :lol:
Also,while I was in my e-mails, I found out they fancy my car as 'plain clothes' CID car.
The fee has just increased :D
