Actor/Director Scot Carlisle and Jake Elsas (of Seven-Minute Cinemas) have teamed up and officially formed a new production company: ElCar Pictures. In 2010, Scot and Jake worked together on the short film Bittersweet Chocolate, enjoying their experience so much that they decided to become business partners.
Their first project: McQueen’s Machines, an exciting TV series that focuses on Steve McQueen’s passion for machines — cars, motorcycles, and ultimately airplanes. Based on the book by Matt Stone (who — through the course of writing the book — became close friends with Steve’s son, Chad McQueen), the series highlights McQueen’s love for machines, a love that transcended simple enjoyment. Indeed, McQueen very much developed a symbiotic relationship with his beloved machines, both on- and off-screen. And although he passed away in 1980 at the young age of 50, McQueen’s passion lives on… with his fans, family, and an automotive industry that continues to be heavily influenced by the King of Cool.
More to come!
