Fernby Films Classic Short – Thunderstruck

THUNDERSTRUCK – 2004

Made in about twenty minutes at Culburra, in South Eastern South Australia, David boon and myself filmed this little homage to his ute, which he had to sell shortly afterwards as a result of obtaining a company owned vehicle. Boony loved this ute, and he asked me to put together a short little something to remember it by.

The film is a spoof of the Holden advertisements of the time, which featured various Holden vehicles driving in various cool ways (usually sideways) through paddocks and roads and stuff, to the tune of Thunderstruck by AC/DC. Of course, Boony wanted to emulate that, so we set out to see what we could come up with.

Edit wise, I could have perhaps spent a little more time on the filming, as some of the shots didn’t quite work as I’d have liked, but this little trip down memory lane has something you don’t often see in a film.

No special effects. No sped up footage, this is all real time stuff. Enjoy.

Normally detesting these kinds of bios, Rodney's keen love of film more often outclasses his ability to write convincingly about them. Never blessed with a body worthy of a porn star, nor being the heir to a wealthy industrialists fortune, nor suffering the tragedy of having his parents murdered outside a Gotham theater, Rodney is, contrary to popular opinion, neither Ron Jeremy, JD Rockefeller, or Batman. As a serious appreciator of film since 1996, Rodney's love affair with the medium has continued with his online blog, Fernby Films, a facility allowing him to communicate with fellow cineasts in their mutual love of all things movie.
