It was a lot of fun working on top of the 781 ft high (238 meters) Roppongi Hills Mori Tower
and to see Brad at work capturing every single each of the city.

THE DEVIL ON WHEELS now on KICKSTARTER

posts-featured-image_DOW

Finally we have found some time to update our official blog. After months of work non stop, we have managed to launch our project THE DEVIL ON WHEELS live on Kick starter.

CLICK HERE TO VIEW NEW UPDATES in CATALAN/ENGLISH/FRENCH/ITALIAN/SPANISH

THE DEVIL ON WHEELS, will be a feature documentary about Steven Spielberg’s first success film Duel,
and the cult that surrounds it. The campaign will run for the next 30 days in an all-or-nothing basis.
The project’s goal is to achieve a minimum of £60.000 (82.500€, $92.000)
that will allow the film to be shot this summer in the USA.
In exchange of financial support the production company offers to backers a wide variety of rewards:
copies of the film, books, new posters, film credits and even the appearance in the actual film.

TWO YEARS IN THE MAKING

The crowd funding campaign has started, unveiling the project page and DOW teaser trailer, which was filmed in four countries. Two years ago, an international group of Duel fans joined forces to make this project a reality. Now it has been awarded Kickstarter’s staff pick. Throughout the campaign, the team will première at least three short documentaries about very special Duel fans.
THE DEVIL ON WHEELS project has the approval of UNIVERSAL STUDIOS and the community of the very loyal fans of Spielberg’s film. The DOW team, coming from Italy, China, Spain and England, is scheduled to tour the United States exploring the Duel phenomenon: it will interview the surviving members of the Duel crew, reconstruct the way the film was made, and meet with fans and experts to discuss the ongoing appreciation of the film.

AN UNDYING CULT

In Duel, a Movie-Of-The-Week shot in 1971, a terrifying truck, whose driver we never see, for no apparent reason chases a lone driver along the desert roads of Southern California. Such was its success, that the TV film was extended and distributed as a film worldwide. How come this tiny film, made cheaply and quickly for TV, has generated such a passionate, international and undying cult is the question the documentary wants to answer. THE DEVIL ON WHEELS will find out what makes Duel so unique and, in so doing, will explore the power and fascination of films on people.

INTERNATIONAL DIE HARD FANS

Duel fans from all over the world regularly visit the film locations in the desert next to Los Angeles. They go to see the surviving truck in North Carolina. Would-be filmmakers analyse the way it was made. Steven Spielberg’s first known work has become a top cinematic reference. Director Alfonso Cuaron revealed he used Duel as a source when he made “Gravity”.
The title of the documentary, THE DEVIL ON WHEELS, is the straight translation of the Spanish title of Duel, and it’s been chosen as an homage to the international recognition of the film.

A CROSSROADS FOR DUEL LOVERS

The filmmakers have created a website, www.thedevilonwheelsmovie.com, which for the first time gathers in one place all Duel related information to be found on the internet. The Facebook page www.facebook.com/thedevilonwheels serves as a meeting point for the fans.

 

Director Enric Folch, a multi-award winning TV director in Spain, returns to documentary making after the excellent international reception of Chining Me, an ironical view on pre-Olympic China. His most successful TV film, Tempus Fugit, will soon have a theatrical remake through an international coproduction.
