The screen opens to a dazzling array of colours which slowly comes into focus to show a F1 car driving towards the camera. This cuts to show several close up shots of the F1 car and driver. The camera then moves to a bird’s eye view of the car racing along a road in the desert.

In the next shot we see a blurry image of a large sliver plane in the distance with its propellers starting up. This cuts instantly to a shot of the F1 car driving very fast, and then back to the silver plane moving forwards very fast. The shot then cuts to a close up of the propeller and then to pilots steering wheel.

We then see a front on shot of the plane flying very low with the F1 car beneath it, it then cuts to a clear shot of the side panel of the car displaying Shell clearly across it. We then see a TV screen  with the F1 car in shot . It then cuts between a shot of the plane flying above to a shot of the car from the pilots view.

The planes shadow slowly engulf  the F1 car  as it flies  low above the car. This shot is shown again from the side and it cuts back to a close up shot of the driver in the car to the car moving alongside the plane and then a close up of the pilot.

The pilot then reaches for a switch and then it cuts to a shot of the plane with the F1 Car beneath it, we see a long hose released from the plane and it cuts to a shot of the F1 car racing ahead with the plane flying low above it with the hose flying behind it.

We then see the hose open up and attach itself to the fuel hole of the car. It then cuts to the inside of the Fuel hose and you will see a gush of fuel enter and fill up the tank.

We now cut to a shot of the hose from the plane to the car and we see several shots of the plane flying low with the hose attached to the F1 car refuelling it.

The F1 car then continues to drive and turns sharply to release the hose from its fuel cap. The plane then fly’s  on once the hose has been released the and we see several close shots of the pilot, the plane wing with the Shell pecten on it and the plane flying low over the dusty rocky mountains of the desert.

We then cut to follow a F1 car and the words; ‘where cars are a passion,’ appear followed by a shot of the plane flying high across the blue skies and the words ‘the fuel is Shell.’

BLANK

We open with a shot of cameramen  to filming a speeding  a F1 car in an open top Jeep. The title: Shell ‘Refuelling’ The Film of The Film appears. The jeep continues to follow and film the F1 car driving along a windy desert road, followed by a low flying plane.

We then see a close up shot of the F1 car with the plane flying low above it. It then cuts back to the shot of the Camera crew following and filming in the Jeep behind the F1 car and Plane. One of the camera men throws  up a thumbs up and it then cuts to one of the camera crew lying on his back holding a camera and filming the plane flying pass above him with the car following behind.

We then see this sequence replayed as it is shot through convex lenses and again from a side on view.

We then see a shot of the plane flying across the desert. This cuts to a man in the desert that points towards the runaway and says ‘the plane will fly down the runway at zero feet with the F1 beneath it.’ This cuts to a shot of the plane flying down the runway and then back to the camera man who continues to point out where the cameras will be positioned.

We then see clips of a camera being assembled on site, and then to a covered area where the Ferrari team are covering their ears as they test the engine of the F1 car.  This is followed by the camera crew testing the camera equipment and then it cuts to the show the backend of a Ferrari road car and then a full shot of the same car before it is filmed by a camera crew speeding down the road.

One of the Camera men then provides a demonstration of the flame thrower used to create the heat in the film. We then cut to shots of the red coloured barrels of Shell fuel being used by the Shell team.

This then cuts to the desert showing the activity of the camera men setting up their equipment, it cuts to the director sitting in a chair explaining the array of effects that will be used on the set, we then cut to a man demonstrating how smoke will be created from the machine, and we cut to a line of men holding mirrors and square reflective panels showing how they will use the mirrors and panels to catch glints of light to create a glimmering effect in the distance.

We cut to the director and the crew preparing the cameras for filming and then to the Ferrari crew preparing the F1 car and checking the wheels. We then cut to shots of the F1 car driving along the road and a man mimicking the F1 Ferrari engine.

We cut to several clips of camera crew setting ups their equipment from different locations and then it cuts to the plane as it fly’s low along the run way with the car beneath it. We cut to another crew who decide to film the shot again and we see clips of men and standing in different areas watching for the plane and car to drive and fly by again. We cut to the camera crew giving each other high fives at the end of the take.

We then see a shot of a F1 car being hosting up by a team of men slowly guiding it into a wooden platform. The wooden platform is on the back of a lorry which is being driven along a road. We then see a camera man who is strapped to the lorry filming a close up of the F1 car as the plane flies over them. We see the smoke that is created and this cut’s to several close up shots of the Driver in the F1 car.

We see a shot of the plane flying low with the hose flying out behind it and the F1 car following closely on the ground.

This then cuts to a shot of the f1 car that is stationary with a camera crew infront of the car blowing smoke and wind from a machine at the car and driver, another man is holding a hose over the cars fuel cap. We then cut to a shot of the men reflecting light and then to a camera monitor with the F1 car on the screen.

We then see a close up of the hose as it attaches itself to the fuel cap on the F1 car and the fuel flows through the hose.  We then see a crew standing on top of the platform watching the plane fly low over them. We then see the winch which is attached to the F1car and lifted to be placed on the ground. The camera crew then screw a silver bar to the top of the car and attach a camera to it as the Shell technical team look on.

We see the driver of the F1 car then place his helmet on his head and step in to the drivers seat. The camera is then adjusted to stop in front of his helmet we then cut to a shot of the F1 car racing along the road to follow the plane.

We then see a long open top vehicle with a camera placed on the back and it then shows how the vehicle is moving a long side the F1 car to capture it in motion. This then cuts to a shot of the F1 car driving along the road with the camera equipment placed on top of the car. And then to the open top vehicle with the camera on it following the F1 car close behind.

We see a plane flying in the sky and a man telling him to ‘get ready’, we then see a clip of the F1 car from the window of the plane and then cuts to the plane flying low over the runway.

We see another clip of the plane flying low over the rocky mountains and then we see a crew of people slouching low behind the rocks wearing mouth masks as they hold a hose that is creates smoke.

This shot of the plane flying over the mountains is shown again from a slightly different angle with people in the background clapping once the plane has flown by.

We then cut to a director sitting in a helicopter gesturing how the plane should fly. The helicopter then takes off and we cut to a shot of the helicopter flying high alongside the F1 car, the plane then appears and is flying low above the F1 car. We see how the helicopter  moves long side the plane with the F1 car beneath it.

The F1 car is then stationary beside the road and a man is blowing smoke with a machine at the side of the car, waving a mirror frantically to create a smoky effect.

Its cuts back to the car driving slowly along the road and then to the f1 car wheel spinning on the spot to create a lot a dust. We then cut back to a camera crew in a open top car filming the F1 car from the front and a man at the side waving his arm to signal to the car in front to go.

We cut to another shot of the F1 car racing down the run way and see the plane fly in over the F1 car. We then see a camera person on the back of a open top car holding a camera pointing it at the Plane that is flying low above them.

We then see a clip of the F1 car racing down the runway and which then changes to show the F1 car from the front as the plane is flying low behind the car. We then see a shot of the plane flying off into the distance.
