A few months ago, Akira Nakai-san was in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania building the latest Rauh-Welt Begriff Porsche for Porsche enthusiast, Ben Harmony. The newest addition to the fleet, known as “Prince”, took a surprising two days to finish (he typically completes builds in three) and was the first Porsche to receive the RWB widebody treatment right under where the owner sleeps.
Young automotive filmmakers and friends of Jalopnik Chris Petruccio (Krispy Media) and Anthony Purcell (Halycon) were there to document the whole build, shooting video and time-lapses around the clock. The film is beautifully shot using a plethora of both standard and cinema lenses, and has a number of scenes with excellent controlled, continuous lighting.
Of course, it’s a given that the rolling shots with the unmistakeable air-cooled engine noise will give you goosebumps.
The duo took advantage of the tools at their disposal to create both a visual and auditory experience that’s already won them a nomination by The London Motor Film Festival for “Best Documentary.”
I love what they’ve done and think you will too.
