At least, that's sort of what it felt like. Not only were we miles from the city life in Boston but the Jetta found itself winding around country roads lined with trees, farm stands and grassy fields. Yep, we were in Western Mass. Northampton, actually. Flew across the state on I-90, opposite rush hour traffic. Glorious. Talked with John Stifler, the Press and Elite Athlete Liaison for the race.
Does this make you dizzy? I really liked the way the fresh morning sunlight filtering through the trees bounced around on both the camera lens AND my dusty windshield. That, along with the wavy camera position and the turning motion of the vehicle itself make for a short but lovely wafting shot.
We filmed it in the cul-de-sac near John's home. Driving around in circles. Perfect.
Until next time...
