Press, satisfied numerous teasers and trailers, have long been relishing artistic discoveries of films. In particular, an unprecedented fleet of “Mad Max”, which consists of 150 hand-made by the most bizarre of cars, trucks and motorcycles, each of which has a unique appearance and character.
Back in late April, Warner Brothers released a gallery of vehicles from “Mad Max: Fury Road» that are bizarre and totally insane. On the eve of the premiere we have learned some of the details of their development. It tells Bloomberg, the primary responsibility for the creation of this insane car pantheon – a designer and art director Colin Gibson.
Since Miller did not want to use a computer for the filming schedule, Gibson had to find a suitable “nature”, ie “automobiles with character” throughout Australia. The main condition is that the machine is used at least all sorts of newfangled electronic stuff, plus they have to be on the move. In the film, the main vehicles express the characters, so the body, and each item must contain a certain message across, says Game2Day.org.
Himself Mad Max (Tom Hardy) is still drives by a black 1973 Ford XB Falcon Coupe, also known by the first three series of the epic. The machine, nicknamed Interceptor has received a new engine, new chassis and is equipped with dozens of guns.
