Director Statement

I love my old Volvo "Harvey" but his days are probably numbered. I've wanted to feature him in a film for ages.

I only had a few days with my lead actor (visiting from Germany) so I jumped in and used a phone, which was great for mounting all over the outside of the car and getting those tight interior shots. I know this meant a more rudimentary visual style but the phone offered a great way to capture the story without a crew, in the time I had available.

I hope you enjoy my film!

Thanks again for your consideration.

Cheers
Andrew
