A shocking solution to London’s
Olympians chase the Ultimate Performance at London 2012 with BMW.
Paralympian David Weir, stars in ‘Man & Machine’ the 1st four films produced for BMW UK ahead of the London Olympics 2012. Directed by Yannakis Jones the documentary short follows
2008 double-gold champion highlighting the unique relationship he has with his sports equipment.
The documentary was shot at De Velt BMW (Munich), Kings Meadow Athletics, St. Mary’s College and at Richmond Park in the closing months of 2011. Production had to be closely aligned with David’s training schedule - all other considerations were secondary. Weir, went on to a stunning quadruple gold victory to add to his already impressive haul.
Jones commissioned directors Asif Kapadia, of Oscar nominated ‘Senna’ fame, Richard De Aragues and Steve Riley to respectively complete the mini docs series: Power, Speed & Endurance with Steve Cram. Form & Function with Louis Smith and Beneath the Surface with Rebecca Adlington.
