The Cars Of Mad Max: Fury Road By John Platt

Mar 6, 2017

Mad Max: Fury Road was a pleasant surprise. It defied what we have come to expect of sequels. Instead of simply being some cheap ploy to get butts in seats by way of appealing to a sense of nostalgia, it dazzled with brilliant stunts, high-octane action, and other worldly set design.

While many of the vehicles was destroyed in filming, John Platt managed to capture most all of the apocalyptic machines before they were let loose in the Namibian desert. In total, production designer Colin Gibson brought 150 of these petrol powered monsters to life – most all of which came from the imagination of writer director George Miller. Each one has a really stunning amount of detail to them. From Furiosa’s War Rig, to one of the many motorcycles and trucks that were driven in pursuit throughout the movie, Platt managed to get a portrait of each in full, stunning detail. In fact, he does such a good job one gets the sense when looking back on all of these vehicles that they were as much characters in the movie as the actors that drove them.
