Vehi­cle construction

James Bond and Bat­man are prob­a­bly the two fore­most exam­ples of movie heroes with unique means of trans­port. The genre of sci­ence fic­tion also repeat­ed­ly cre­ates admirable pieces of art in this field. The supreme dis­ci­pline here cer­tain­ly is the con­struc­tion of a com­plete, func­tion­al vehi­cle. How­ev­er, most of the time we car­ry out con­ver­sions on nor­mal vehi­cles, which are dif­fi­cult to rec­og­nize at first sight, or respec­tive­ly are not even vis­i­ble in the picture.

When cars lit­er­al­ly fly into the air, doors are ripped off, shots are fired through and nor­mal actors dri­ve dar­ing stunts, the SFX team was already at work.

Mod­i­fi­ca­tions are also car­ried out with the aim of ensur­ing that the vehi­cles can be used safe­ly from all par­ties involved. For exam­ple instal­la­tion of rein­force­ments, shifts in bal­ance point, fire pro­tec­tion etc.

As you can see on one pic­ture off this page, we don’t shy away of air­planes and remod­eled the mil­i­tary ver­sion from a civil­ian heli­copter. Here how­ev­er, our pos­si­bil­i­ties are lim­it­ed as long as you want to fly in Ger­many — in oth­er coun­tries the legal sit­u­a­tion is some­times con­sid­er­ably less complicated.

Vehi­cle con­struc­tion is some­times a very time-con­sum­ing mat­ter. Many days, weeks and some­times even months can be nec­es­sary for plan­ning, con­struc­tion and func­tion­al tests. We’ll glad­ly tell you what you have to expect.
