Hello,

We're from Creative Film Cars in Manhattan. We are the Northeast's premier provider of vehicles for film, television, fashion shoots, magazines and events.

We are looking for a Lotus Esprit with a light tan or white interior for a photo shoot. The shoot will be taking place on location in New York City tentatively on April 15th. It is a static shoot and no driving will be required. You will be compensated for your time and the rental, and your vehicle will be fully insured for the duration of the shoot.

Please don't hesitate to call us at 212-864-4060 if you are interested in participating, and we will be happy to answer any questions that you may have.

To describe more fully what we do:

First, we act as an agent for your vehicle. You supply us with a few photos and we put them in front of our hundreds of clients, and on our online database. When a client selects your ride, we contact you immediately, see if you're interested, and send you a contract. In most cases no driving will be required. They just have to look the part. You will be paid for the rental and your time.

Second, we act as a caretaker. As a fully licensed and insured company, your car is safe and covered with a one million dollar policy. A CFC representative will attend every shoot to guarantee that everything goes smoothly. At the shoot, you are welcome to stay with your vehicle to ensure that it is treated in the manner, and with the respect it deserves. Location, length of shoot, and use of vehicle are among the factors that determine payment. The moment the shoot is completed you get a check in your hand. Now wasn't that easy?

Additional benefits are increasing the vehicles provenance, value, possible tax write-offs, and seeing your vehicles in print or on film.

Go to http://www.creativefilmcars.com/submit.htm and submit your vehicle. It's really pretty simple. It costs nothing to be listed with our company and your information is protected and will never be shared with anyone. Ever.

For more info give us a call at 212-864-4060 and we will take the time to answer any of your questions, or go to http://www.creativefilmcars.com/ .

Thank you,
Donald and John

Production notes

As owner of Art Models and Props Inc, a Los Angeles based production and special effects company, make sure that you are listed on the insurance rider as Payable to in event of loss/claim. Sometimes, they just add you as a rider to their policy and loss payment has taken several months in some cases if it first goes to the production company. this means that if the supermodel steps into your car wrong, and rips the seat leather with her high heel, or worse, they have her lean on the windshield/hood. etc and damage occurs, or worst case scenario, a high key light or scaffold falls on your car, you will be out of a ride for some time while repairs happen.

As to costs, here in Los Angeles, typical going rate for an exotic should be a daily rate of no less than $1,100 plus bonded transportation to and from set.


Just my 2c worth so you guys are covered.

Hi Larry,

Thanks for the response!

For this job, our client has specifically requested an Esprit, however you can certainly feel free to submit your Elise for inclusion in our database for future photo and film work.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call us anytime at 212-864-4060 and we will be happy to help.

Thanks again,
Donald

Donald and John,

I passed your request on to the members of the local club, the Lotus Enthusiast's Organization of the NYC/NJ area. :bow:

Good Luck finding a car! (You probably will, we have supported local film-makers in the past.)
