Porscha's a Movie Star!

A friend was looking for a 'sexy car' for a photo shoot scene in their short film, as the character is selling out her image to gain fame. They asked to use my Boxster, completely unaware it is thirteen years old, and paid for a detail.

Unfortunately, I cannot post any pictures with the actress posing on the car for copyright reasons, but I did get some awesome snaps in a lit studio. Fun facts: they wheel the car in on GoJacks, however the rear suspension is too low on the Boxster, and once in place they repaint the floor white around the car.

I took a lot of pictures because I doubt she will ever look as good again, the lighting makes all the small blemishes disappear. For any film buffs, we shot RED Epic (same camera they used on The Hobbit).

Enjoy!

Looks damn good. I've always been a big fan of those wheels.

Looks good!

I used to do Car prep work for car brochures & commercials at South Bay Studios in Long Beach. They should not have allowed the reflections of the light in the front fenders. Are you saying the GoJacks won't work on the rear tires of Boxsters??

They didn't have the reflections in the actual photoshoot, these are the pictures I took while we where setting up with my DSLR. The GoJacks fit around the tires, however you would hit the rear suspension (I think the control arm) when you jacked them up.

I thought she was blue but the pictures look black! I say you start a new thread though! I'll contribute pictures of mine.
