Live On Set: Sneak Peek Behind The Scenes On Our New Live Draw Production

Last night we hosted our live draw where we announced the winners of our Morris Minor and Triumph Stag, congratulations to Matthew and Gamal.

It was our first live show working alongside local production company, Bruzier.

As we look to continually improve on our live streams, we endeavour to create exciting and interactive content.

Soon we hope to open our doors so that many of you can join us in our productions.

Extra cameras, microphones, and the new large display all help make the experience from watching at home more exciting. But of course week 1 comes with its teething problems.

With the launch of three exciting minis, we hope you can join us for the next one.

Congratulations to Matthew Sudgen who won our 1949 Morris Minor MM Lowlight with ticket number 25 and to Gamal Zindani who won our 1971 Triumph Stag with ticket number 1047!

Behind The Scenes – Mini Madness

With all three minis individually shot, it only left the finale: Bridge Classic Cars does the Italian Job. Directed, shot and produced by our marketing and visual gurus, Ellie and Freddie. The team got together Craig, Hannah and Charlotte with their minis to film a quirky and enthusiastic video for our big reveal. Co-ordinating all three mini’s on the runway for each shot took a few attempts but after an hour or so, we managed to get together enough frames for our reveal video which aired last night on our live draw.

With each mini and driver taking turns in the spotlight, driving stunts were choreographed to allow for each mini and driver to be clearly seen whilst still keeping the quirky personality of the classics.

After the video was shot, we lined up the cars and their drivers for some photos before heading back to the hanger and settling down for an editing marathon.

Behind The Scenes – 1980 Mini 1275 GT

Last week we ventured out with our friend and model, Hannah, to shoot our 1980 Mini 1275 GT, which you now know is one of three of our grand mini reveal. This characterful orange classic is not only fun to look at, but also fun to drive. For Hannah, it is her dream car, making her the ideal candidate to model and drive this competition car.

As usual, the team splits into two divisions with Freddie tackling the video aspects and Ellie taking on the photography. By splitting responsibilities and time like this, the team can swiftly get through multiple car shoots in a day, creating content for all our social media outlets.

As we usually do, we shot in RAF Bentwaters where we have a hanger. Driving up and down the 1.3 mile run way, we captured our videos and photos of this spritely orange classic.

We were lucky to have fair weather on this shoot after the unlucky spell of bad weather recently which makes shooting cars in difficult.

We always aim to shoot multiple galleries of each car, including the main product photos you see, the portraits and motion ones, but where we can, we also like to pick a second destination to shoot in to create a wider diversity of photos.

A Mini Arrival Causes Major Excitement

On Monday we had an exciting orange delivery…

This characterful 1980 Austin Morris Mini 1275 GT has arrived and will be one of our next competition cars. With only a few minor cosmetic imperfections, this Mini is in perfect condition and looks like its just left the factory!

We’re looking forward to photographing this charming little motor and launching it on our competition site! Watch this space!
