In 2008 I had the opportunity to be involved with the development and production of the DC documentary INSIDE THE TARGET CAR. I wrote about my experiences here:
Ironically, I now realize that the odd coincidence between the original structure of ITTC and the 2004 SPEED channel program, where my essay “SS100X” from CAR CRASH CULTURE (Palgrave/Macmillan 2002) was used as the basis for the screenplay, may have been deliberate. The SPEED channel program was entirely CT. ITTC ended up being a WCR redux.
Was the JFK LIMOUSINE SPEED Channel program the catalyst for ITTC? Was ITTC intended to wipe out is influence? I will let you decide that for yourselves…
Here are links to various sections and outtakes of ITTC:

Oddly, and curiously enough, when I had the privilege to take a Cinema Production intensive at IFP/MN last week-end, as I described observing the filming of the rebuilt JFK limo at the Henry Ford in Dearborn, the instructor pointed out to me that I already have experience in this area as a result of in my involvement with these productions.
Who knew? 🙂
