Promo: Autocon Promo Trailer Shoot – Los Angeles

Autocon1

 

This past weekend Justin, who runs Autocon, messaged me about a trailer they were shooting in Los Angeles for the upcoming Autocon event on June 1st.  It was last minute, so I couldn’t make it to all the locations, but I did manage to come out to one spot to take a couple shots and say hi.  It was a good way to spend an afternoon, and I got to meet some nice people.  Being involved with the media in shows like Autocon is a good way for me to stay grounded to import scene here in the US; So-Cal specifically.  I spend a lot of time and energy covering the Japanese lifestyle, and as a result I miss out on the things happening here.  So, I’m happy to be able to say I’m involved in a show like this.  I had a tight schedule that weekend so I wasn’t able to stay for long, but please enjoy what I was able to cover.

Thao’s car was setup with a rig for the film crew to get some rolling footage, so afterwards I took a couple pics of it.

The theme of the trailer is going to be “white”, so all cars in attendance were some shade of white.  Patrick’s Veilside NSX was a nice addition.

Overall some really nice cars made it out – I can’t wait to see how the trailer turned out.  They shot at many locations for a few days so there should be a good variety of scenes.  Enjoy ~
