OK, so last week me and Ewan Morrison went out driving around Edinburgh, pretending to crash the car and filming it. It was rather surreal, especially when a car went past thinking we really had hit someone. I got soaked lying on that wet road, I tell yah. A writer’s life, huh?
Ewan is not only a great writer but a skilled film and TV director, and the result is this rather fine trailer for Hit & Run.
Not bad for zero budget, huh?
The music is an old Northern Alliance instrumental tune called ‘Casiopolis’ because we made it entirely using noddy Casiotone keyboards. I think it was released on a Fence Christmas compilation under a different name, if anyone cares about that stuff.
If anyone has any useful ideas for ways of using this to promote the book, lemme know.
Happy car-crashing, people!
