& SASSY STYLE
Experience a slice of history
Due to the rise in popularity of period films and TV series, demand is ever-increasing for vintage vehicles which are authentic to the time period. To transport audiences back to the decade in which a TV series or film is set, producers opt for authentic cars.
However, if the movie or TV show in question involves car crash stunts, the cars are often replicas. The main reason behind this is replicas are not as expensive to replace as authentic cars.
When seeking car props for the stage, car props for theatre, or cars for movie props in period films and TV shows, studios generally acquire them in three ways.
1. Vintage car lovers bring their impressive machines to the set. Or, producers scout car clubs, websites, online forums, luxury car events or even particular suburbs for the perfect set of wheels.
Pay can vary depending on how long the vehicle is needed, the production budget and how heavily the car is featured in the TV show or movie.
2. Studios will acquire and rebuild older cars from scratch, depending on the finances available to them. If the studio has the facilities and expertise, rebuilding these cars can be done in-house. If not, this rebuilding is outsourced to specialist mechanics and body shops. Or;
3. For cars which are used as props or set pieces (either moving or fixed) in TV or film productions, studios turn to specialised car hire companies like Chevy Red Hire. This enables producers to hand-pick the perfect luxury car to compliment the film or TV show.
