Years in the Making: BEHIND Nigel Petrie

BEHIND Nigel Petrie

Article by Kevin Landers. Film by Matthew Cox

Have you ever had an idea that just sits in the back of your mind for years? Nigel Petrie did. Six years ago he envisioned the perfect drift car. After three years of mentally working everything out and two and a half years of building, his idea became reality. With grit and determination, Nigel built what he wanted without any compromise or influence from the rest of the world. Unlike most modified drift cars, Nigel’s Ute was built from the ground up—every weld, cut, and bolt. See the love and care behind the build of an amazing drift car in a film by Matthew Cox.

Matthew’s outstanding cinematography and great camera work leaves you wanting even more. With his simple, yet captivating editing technique, he delivers a short video that makes you feel you are watching a full-length film. Matthew’s use of lenses shows an impressive depth of field and color grading, and his overall style gives this film a rough edge that perfectly matches the composition. Without a doubt, it’s one of the finest build videos that we have seen in a long time.

When I'm not out serving in the Army, I'm behind my camera shooting video. My love for the modified lifestyle is not only shown through my lens, but also in my day to day life — from the car I drive to the people I hang around with.
