Some of you know that each year I do fun Christmas cards for clients over at AustinChristmasCards.com. While working on those client’s cards, I have to squeeze in a shoot for our family too. This year there was much deliberation over what to do. We usually have some sort of a running list of ideas that we keep from year to year. I have misplaced said list. In the end, we decided on doing a Back To The Future themed card. It’s a pretty good movie. Ok I’m kidding – it’s the GREATEST of ALL TIME. You will not find a bigger fan than me.
We knew instantly that Trevor had to be Biff. It just fits his personality. He probably could take Biff right now in a MMA cage fight. That meant Brandon had to be Marty, so we scored him a Coast Guard Youth Auxiliary life preserver. The car is an interesting story. Originally I tried to track down one of those fan cars that are all decked out to look like the film. When that didn’t work out, I went to my backup – an 8-inch long toy DeLorean.
There’s a power line running from the car to the tree. We’ll leave it up to you whether the car is powering the tree or vice versa. The mall is Barton Creek Mall here in Austin – always a pleasure to shoot at late at night while wearing a dark hoodie.
