Screening date set for Kiwi Indy Car doco Kiwis – Born to Fly
The final work in the post-production phase of the documentary Kiwis – Born to Fly was completed in the past week at Perspective Group. The completion of audio finishing work and the detailed final touches and treatments were recently completed almost eleven months to the day from when this documentary was a mere scribble on a napkin in a Matakana restaurant as an idea of a story that needed to be told.
Documentary makers and Sky Sports have confirmed that the premiere screening will take place at 9:00pm on 5 September on Sky Sport 5. The complete concept of Kiwis – Born to Fly is to highlight not only the great talents and skills New Zealand has within the greater NTT INDYCAR SERIES in terms of drivers but equally the many people in key positions amongst race teams highlighting the roles and the impact they have in the series. The fact they are all proudly New Zealanders and held in very high regard is a credit to whom they are and proudly represent New Zealand.
“I look back at it and it actually makes me feel very humble that all these guys gave and shared time with us during the shoot back in May,” commented producer David Turner.
“They all have such busy days, the time they gave us to reflect their stories was amazing. This was always my goal to show this side of the sport and the respect they all have among their piers. It is something that we should all be very proud of as New Zealanders.”
Supporting presenting sponsors are Dayle ITM, Armstrong Motor Group, Toyota GAZOO Racing NZ, Creme Insurance, Giltrap Group, McElrea Racing and C& R Developments whom without their assistance this documentary would not be possible.
