This is a bit of shameless self promotion, but I thought I would share the news that my long awaited car chase machinima film Collateral Collision that I have been working on is finally complete. And in good time too, considering that it has been nearly a year in the making.
Collateral Collision is the result of a huge collaborative effort from the Live For Speed (an online PC racing simulation) community, along with my dedicated passion for movie car chases. The aim was simple – to deliver the most authentic representation of a movie car chase that was physically possible within the realms of a machinima film.
As a result, Collateral Collision was a hugely ambitious project, with incredibly long filming times and editing sessions. Not a second that you see has been overlooked and every sound you hear has been meticiously dubbed from other sources. To say the least, a tremendous amount of effort has been put into this project, in terms of both the filming and the editing.
You can watch the film in its entirety after the break.
A download link is also provided in the descriptions, and you can watch the film in HD over on Youtube, providing you don’t have a spluttering connection.
As a lone driver sets off, little does he know that another malicious driver is about to give pursuit, with dire consequences that result in a grueling chase sequence of life and death. Think of it as Duel meets Grindhouse: Death Proof.
To put it simply, we feel that Collateral Collision is the most definitive and comprehensive machinima car chase experience, which aims to mimic the likes of car chase staples such as Gone in 60 Seconds, Bullitt and Ronin.
