Making time to check out the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte, N.C., seeing cars I remember seeing when I was just a boy. 

Images from my final day of shooting on my Ferrari film, this time back in Maranello, Italy at the famed Pista di Fiorano, the Ferrari test track where our account executive Tommaso stood in as one of the Scuderia Ferrari crew members. We were given a very exclusive guided tour of the factory after the shooting. A dream day for any car enthusiast, the perfect way to complete the shooting of the 458 Speciale.

Recently I had the opportunity to direct a short film to introduce the Ferrari 458 Speciale. We shot over three days based in Barcelona Spain. Although I’ve had the good fortune to work with many distinctive performance cars in my career, the 458 Speciale was perhaps the most unbelievable car I have ever personally experienced. The sheer power of the car was as close to race car performance one can feel on the road. It’s looks, with the distinctive white and blue stripes accenting the traditional Ferrari red, are hard to take your eyes off of. Yet the sound, the symphony of everything performance car, everything Ferrari, was the most captivating of all. The official film is available on the Ferrari website but please be looking for my directors cut which will debut in December of this year.

Images from the second day of shooting on my upcoming Ferrari film featuring two, 50 camera “bullet-time” shots photographed on a racetrack with the car driving through at high speed. The Ferrari looks amazing for sure, but the sound of the car is indescribably wondrous.

One of the things I love most about living in my neighborhood are the amazing murals one can find all over the area. One of my favorites is the Southwest Museums Native American mural by Daniel Cervantes, himself a local, located on Marmion Way near the Avenue 43 Gold Line station. Cervantes technique and compositions remind me of one of my favorite artists of all time, Mexican painter Diego Rivera.
