Time Lapse test from Melbourne Motorshow


I have seen it done quite alot, I recently even attended a Phillip Bloom lecture to here more about it.

But now I have tried creating my first ever time lapse video from using still images

I shot it on the weekend, whilst at the Motorshow shooting a job for Toyota

Not bad for a first attempt but room for improvement, my attempt is below

Holden Colorado Concept launched at AIMS 2011


Holden are always a big one for reveals of new concepts at the Motor show and this year was no exception.

This year we got the new Colorado Concept, which is actually the third version of this concept as we have already seen two other versions.

The first version at the 32ndBangkok International Motor Show in March

The second one was at  the Buenos Aires International Auto Show in June

But this one is all Australian made and designed with head designer 26-year-old Monash graduate Ben Last working closely with GMs’ Colorado & Brazilian design studio with operations in Thailand and US to develop the final Australian show theme.

Looking forward now to see the final production version now, hopefully it won’t be to different to this concept

After the jump are two video’s that Holden showed at the Launch, both very cool and give us an insight into the how the concept was developed and built .

Also after the jump is the full press release from Holden.

Suzuki SWIFT S CONCEPT Showstopper At Geneva Motor Show


Love the look of this new concept car from Suzuki, look forward to seeing it when its released

Based on the all-new Swift which went on sale in Australia this week, the SWIFT S CONCEPT conveys a more sporty design theme than the production version.

In line with Suzuki’s brand philosophy of delivering excitement in every drive, designers have evolved the critically acclaimed Swift design to create a premium sport compact with uncompromising performance.

The Suzuki stand will also feature its standard passenger and SUV production line-up including the Swift, Splash, Alto, Kizashi and Grand Vitara.


Sydney Motorshow Glows Blue – Ford’s New Model’s Announced


Ford today announced a range of new models at the Sydney International Motorshow

Ford Ranger –  made its world debut in Sydney. It is the new face of ‘Built Ford Tough’ for compact truck customers in 180 markets around the world, The Ranger is the result of an all-new global compact truck platform developed in Australia and carries Ford’s new Corporate  front grill, the same used on overseas models such as the Flex, F150 and the brand new Ford Explorer released earlier this year

Ford Focus RS- Ford’s latest hot hatch, the RS follows on from the last hot Focus the XR5. The new RS, which will be limited to only 315 units, had its first public display as the motorshow and may be the only place to see one as rumor has it all 315 models have already been sold. Will be interesting to see how long it takes for people to start offering them back up for sale at a premium over the retail

Ford Performance Vehicles launched the all new Ford GT & GS models, featuring the new supercharged “Coyote” engine, it has been a long wait for both these new model and especially for the new engine. I have been lucky enough to be involved in some of the PR for this new model. My images are starting to appear more and more in the media, but more on that to come soon.

Also recieving updates are the Ford Territory, Ford Mondeo and the new Fiesta Sedan
