A German production company is looking for input from Mini owners across the world for a short film which will be launched to coincide with the car’s 50th birthday next year. Production assistant, Stephanie Guttenberger, told AROnline: ‘I am looking for all kind of Mini enthusiasts, lovers, freaks and interesting characters who would like to take part in the project – the film is mainly going to be based on filmed portraits of Mini drivers from all round the world.’
Stephanie continued: ‘It doesn’t matter if you’re a collector, conservator, tuner, customizer, or just a driver who loves his/her car. The goal is to show that Mini is a one of a kind phenomenon in the car world, both technically and as a lifestyle itself, which cuts through all cultures and languages. The project is commissioned and heavily supported by the BMW Group and will premiere on all the big occasions (corporate and non-corporate) and events scheduled for Mini’s 50th birthday next year.’
Just fill in the questions below if you would like to be involved in the documentary and send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stephanie is particularly looking for Minis in unusual places – we know of more than a few who AROnline readers who match that criterion. She added, ‘We are especially interested in owners from in South Africa and Asia!’
