Weather forecasts the day before this car shoot were not good. In the San Diego area forecasting is difficult, it seems. Predictions of precipitation often just don’t come to pass. So we weren’t too worried. When we arrived at the mountain we had targeted for its famously twisting roads however, it suddenly got very dark. Crew and talent decided to keep shooting even as wind came up and lightning bolts started coming close. We beat it out of there just before the particular peak we were on was the recipient of a brilliant blast (a lighting bolt carries a mind-boggling 100 million to 1 billion volts). What our cameras recorded made us happy. CGI is safer, but less exciting.
