This time, we would like to introduce a style that can be said to be the royal road of car PV videos.
The films nominated for the 1st International Auto Film Festa are introduced in order of application. This time, it is an entry from Japan for “L’auto del sognatore”. The director is Carkichi Co., Ltd.
The work begins when the Maserati emblem appears on the screen. It is a car MC20 that only limited owners can get.
Leaving the garage built in the suburbs, the car rhythmically kicks the winding road along the coast and heads for the highway. And the surrounding scenery changes to the city. Upon reaching the apartment, the driver gets out of the car. Who did you come to see?
A work that lets you experience the car life that everyone longs for. The life of going back and forth between the suburbs and the city center, where you spend the weekend in a supercar, will be seen by many people while overlapping with their ideals.
Maserati in the play is also a machine with a strong personality, but it does not become too strong and has no unpleasant atmosphere. Is the driver the owner? There is a little bit of nervousness in the performance, but once you get in the car, you can ride it perfectly, and the MC20 looks familiar to your hands and feet. The air that the driver himself wears while driving is also soft.
If you like cars, you’ve probably seen it once, and the film “C’était un rendez-vous”, in which Ferrari runs in Paris, overlaps with my personal feelings, and my excitement increases. It was such a work.
Simple and cool. It is a work taken by someone who is familiar with the points that make a car look beautiful. The car shows a completely different face depending on the viewing angle.
An overseas car designer once told me. “Do you know the angle where the car looks the most beautiful? It’s the same point of view as the designer draws.”
Renderings drawn by car designers. The illustration is often drawn at an angle seen from the viewpoint of almost the same height as the car. The theory is that shooting from a slightly lower position looks more excellent than if you usually stood.
I would love to hear more about whether the author intuitively knows how to make cars look beautiful or whether he has a unique philosophy, but in this video, both the driving scenes and the scenes inside the car are excellent. Before I knew it, I was concentrating watch on it.
Also, what should be given in this work is the “sound”, the comfort of the sound. The dry, high-pitched sound of Maserati echoes as if you were manipulating it.
In terms of visuals, it would be even better if the director’s view of the world was wrapped in a little more color and atmosphere. I want to see the director’s world.
It is a classic work taken by car lovers. No one would argue with that. Taking films by a car lover means “I like this machine that I see here.” It is precisely because of this that evokes sympathy that it leaves a strong impression in the hearts of those who see it. (Written by SHIMIZU)
