Last evening we established the plan for EWTV. Present were Matthew Ettinger (former Ferrari Breadvan owner and long-time friend), Larry Crane (Automobile Quarterly, Auto Aficionado, he appears in my Carrera Panamericana documentary), Chad Glass (he did the poster for the Carrera doc and the cover art and illustrations for my GTO book), Richard Mitchell (Black Horse Motors), Jeanetta Dumouchel (a producer with me on the Carrera doc), Kenny Lombino (Ferrari Club of America), Martin Mervel (Studio Slab Architects), Eric Moreno (Ferrari enthusiast and EW regular), automotive designer Greg Maga and model maker Antoine Pallaud.
It was a very productive gathering and the format and tone of the series came into sharp focus. Two segments have already been shot though not edited and plans were set into motion for shooting the next segments including one proposed by Gary Wales, though unable to attend last evening, involving an outing in his matched set of boat-tail Rolls-Royces. Ed Niles was unable to attend but will be a valued member of the Elysée Mob.
We have assembled an interesting collection of individuals with distinct personalities, backgrounds and interests. I think the adventures we will be filming should be entertaining and, just possibly, informative.
Update: The meeting described above took place last fall. This is now:
