Want your Camaro in a video?

Posted by Joe Lopez | Posted in Uncategorized, local | Posted on 18-07-2013


Our friends at Two-Lane Blacktop Productions are producing a video for a local Camaro/Firebird conversion company this weekend. They are looking for a local 2010-2013 WHITE Chevrolet Camaro. Must be stock on the outside (factory wheels & color, with or without stripes, etc). Base, RS, SS, any trim level.  This sounds like a cool project!

Plans are to shoot the car this Sunday, July 21st in the morning and will require about 2-3 hours of filming with multiple takes. Maybe 20 minutes of actual driving time at about 20-30 MPH. Shooting will take place within one to two blocks in an industrial type setting.

Two-Lane Blacktop will provide $50 for gas to the participant and will include video bragging rights of course!

For details, contact Don Cenkner / Two-Lane Blacktop Productions at 248-425-6289 or doncenk@hotmail.com
