RR Sport launch: behind the scenes
Daniel Craig takes car reveals to the next level...
Posted: 19 Jun 2013
The pay-off to the film is pure magic. Three weeks in post-production has delivered a gleaming, graded, hi-def final cut of The Delivery, which segues perfectly into a ballsy 45-second live conclusion during which Daniel Craig navigates four blocks of New York, tracked by 11 cameras and flanked by a camera bike and a Steadicam, before coming to a halt in our midtown warehouse. If not quite as nuts as parachuting out of a helicopter with Her Majesty, it still moves the game on in a big way.
The VIPs inside go mad; the worldwide audience watching the live web stream initially crashes the servers, such is the demand. This is not, it has to be said, a shabby way to launch your new car. But how was it for the man himself? Inside his trailer, a bottle of whisky has appeared, the cobalt eyes are agleam, and the mood is upbeat.
