The final work in the post-production phase of the documentary Kiwis – Born to Fly was completed in the past week at Perspective Group. The documentary will debut on Sky Sport 5 on September 5 at 9 pm.
The completion of audio finishing work and the detailed final touches and treatments were recently completed, almost eleven months to the day from when this documentary was a mere scribble on a napkin in a Matakana restaurant as an idea of a story that needed to be told.
In addition to this, the start of a series of 30-second promotional spots that will appear on Sky Sport NZ in the coming weeks were finished and await final sign-off for use. They will also appear on social outlets once cleared for use. The first promo spot features drivers, while the second features some of the crew members that appear in the documentary.
The complete concept of Kiwis – Born to Fly is to highlight not only the great talents and skills New Zealand has within the greater NTT INDYCAR SERIES in terms of drivers but equally the many people in key positions amongst race teams highlighting the roles and the impact they have in the series. The fact they are all proudly New Zealanders and held in very high regard is a credit to whom they are and proudly represent New Zealand.
“I look back at it, and it actually makes me feel very humble that all these guys gave and shared time with us during the shoot back in May”, commented producer David Turner.
“They all have such busy days. The time they gave us to reflect on their stories was amazing. This was always my goal to show this side of the sport and the respect they all have among their piers. It is something that we should all be very proud of as New Zealanders”.
Supporting presenting sponsors are Dayle ITM, Armstrong Motor Group, Toyota Gazoo Racing NZ, Creme Insurance, Giltrap Group, McElrea Racing, and C& R Developments.
