Jeckyll & Hyde Racingteam    


This is the series which started it all...






The series is about four people who together form the Jeckyll & Hyde Racingteam.
In the first part they are testing their race car. After some driving the left wheel starts to vibrate,
the handlebars break and the car drives straight into the public...
A member of the team immediately takes the tow truck, and they pull the car to their garage.
There they try to repair it. But then they find out it's total loss, and sell the car and the garage.
So they buy a new car and a new garage. When the driver arrives with the car, they take out the engine
and put a better one in. After installing a NOS-system the car is ready to race...

Just after they've started driving, a cop starts chasing them and bumps into their left side and the car flips over.
But it lands on its wheels again and can drive on. After an exciting chase the police van crashes,
and they drive back to the garage.
While two of them are repairing the car again, the other ones are going back to the van and steal it.
When they're back the car has almost been repaired. Then they find out there's is an engine in the back of the van.
Of course they put it into their car and test it again.

While the car is being tested, the van is being converted into another race car. When the red car is back,
they've finished converting the van and all go home.
But a thief has been watching them, he sneaks into the garage and steals the converted race car and leaves a letter.

In the letter he says:
  • Hey Jeckyll & Hyde Racingteam,


  • I challenge you to a race, tonight at 10.00 pm.
  • If you win, you'll get your car back.
  • But if I win, I'll get both your cars...

So at 10.00 pm the race started. 3, 2, 1... GO!!!
In the first bend the thief overtakes the Jeckyll & Hyde Racingteam, and he pushes them straight along...
The car from Jeckyll & Hyde Racingteam drives through the public and is driving some seconds behind the thief now.
After using some nitro they are close enough behind the thief to draft and overtake him just before the chicane.
Because they are driving faster than the thief is, they start powersliding while coming out of the chicane and hit the wall...
This creates a opportunity for the thief to overtake them again, so the Jeckyll & Hyde Racingteam is driving second again.
Because of the damage they've got, they crash again in the next corner and knockdown the fences.
The only thing they can do now to take over the thief, is use some nitro and try to draft again on the straight.

When they are ready to overtake him, they hit the fences and flipover into the public.
After some flips the car lands on the road again, and frontally hits the thiefs car.
Just before the finishing line they both stand still.
The thief is just a bit dizzy, but the driver from Jeckyll & Hyde Racingteam has passed away...

Some weeks later, after they have repaired the car, they are searching for a new driver. Three people want to be the new driver,
so the team has to choose. The first one can't find the brakes and the second one drives too slow, so the team hopes the third one is
good enough. The third one is driving very fast and controls the car perfect. So he is chosen to be the new driver.
While he was driving the car, the thief saw him and goes back to his garage. There he tells one of his team members to call
the Jeckyll & Hyde Racingteam. So just after the new driver was chosen, the team was called by the thiefs team.

They were told to take 200 dollars with them and meet the thief at the bridge. There they gave the suitcase with money to the girl.
When the thief arrived he did so too. And then the race began. The Jeckyll & Hyde Racingteamteam drove ahead,
and when they had to cross a railway, the train was coming. The thief was just too late, he got hit by the train and his car flipped over.
When he got back on his wheels again, he followed the train through a tunnel and is close after the Jeckyll & Hyde Racingteam again.
But he can't take over the Jeckyll & Hyde Racingteam anymore, so they win the race!
Unfortunately, when the thief comes over the finishline the girl throws the suitcases to him and he drives away with the money...

31-05-2007 The first video we made was called: Jeckyll & Hyde Crossjump and it looked like this:

          

It's just a short experimental movie we made to see how it works, and how to put it all together
in Windows Movie Maker.
23-06-2007 Afterwards we started with Jeckyll & Hyde Racingteam I. We started with the last part, where
the truck is pulling the car to the 'garage', and finished that part one day later.
25-06-2007 The next day we started with the beginning, the part up and including the scene in which the
public falls from the platform and worked on that from the 25th till the 27th of June.
27-08-2007 Two months later we started on the middle part, everything around the crash. We worked on that
part (1.11 minutes) from the 27th till the 30th of August.
25-10-2007 On the 25th of Octobre we started with Jeckyll & Hyde Racingteam II and shot 266
photo's. On the 26th we shot just 40 photo's, and on the 3th of Novembre we shot another 59 photo's.
24-12-2007 In the Christmas holiday we took some photo's again on the 24th of December. When I was visiting
a friend of mine, turbojermy, we made the short film Truckrace in Hamont.
03-01-2008 We finished Racingteam II on the 3th of January by shooting the last 79 photo's, and putting it all together
in Windows Movie Maker.
01-03-2008 After two months we started with Jeckyll & Hyde Racingteam III. On the 1st of March we took
290 photo's. One day later we took 150 photo's, and on the 3rd of March we took 114 photo's.
From the 4th up and until the 6th of March we took some other 133 photo's.
19-04-2008 1 months later we went on again, and on the 19th and 20th of April we took 411 photo's in total.
03-05-2008 Some weeks later we took 541 photo's spread over 2 days. And on the 13th of May we took the
final 175 photo's, bringing it to an total of 1814 photo's. Three times as much as Racingteam II has.
09-08-2008 On the 9th of August we started with Jeckyll & Hyde Racingteam IV. We shot 519 photo's that day,
which are the first 3 scenes, in which the 'yellow man' wakes up after having a nightmare and walks
to the garage.
10-08-2008 The next day we shot 307 photo's, which are the scenes in which the first new driver who
tested the car is rejected, and the very old driver starts testing the car.
13-08-2008 On the 13th of August we shot 4 scenes, in which the very old driver is rejected, and the good driver
starts testing. Those 4 scenes consist of another 445 photo's, bringing the total already to 1716 photo's.
14-08-2008 One day later we shot just one scene, the second scene of the slalom.
17-08-2008 From the 17th up and until the 19th of August we shot 739 photo's. Which are the scenes till
the start of the race.
22-08-2008 On the 22th we were building a lot, but we found some time to shoot one scene. That scene was
the start of the race, and when the cars are driving under the bridge.
23-08-2008 Because we were brainstorming a lot about things that should happen in the movie while we were building,
we had a lot of new ideas we wanted to work out as fast as possible.
That's why we shot 717 photo's on the 23th of August. Which are the scenes from just after the start of
the race, up and until the scene at the railway station.
24-08-2008 On the 24th of August we finished the movie (except from putting it together, we finished that on the 26th).
