It’s not every day you get to meet a legend, and for this project we got to meet two! Mintex, a renowned braking brand, tasked Pure’s video and production team with capturing its key role in developing the disc brake in an engaging documentary.
Working closely the team at Mintex, our video and production team filmed legendary racing driver, Sir Stirling Moss OBE, and chief test driver and development engineer for Jaguar Cars, Norman Dewis OBE. The documentary captured the icons’ trials and tribulations of the early development of the brake disc and pad that we know today, along with fun and captivating anecdotes from Norman and Stirling.
History in the Braking takes the viewer through the challenges and breakthrough moments of creating a momentous system that revolutionised the automotive industry, with never before seen footage.
Our video and production team then got to editing, weaving in historic racing clips, as well as new footage of a Jaguar C-type and D-type being worked on and tested to demonstrate what Norman would have been doing at the time.
