IN A progressively more eco-friendly world, cars are being blamed for a multitude of sins which have impacted planet Earth.

But budding director Frederick Jewson, alongside other film buffs, have set out to celebrate all things motoring.

The short film is one of the latest projects from the 23 year old who hopes to follow in the footsteps of his aunt Vicky Jewson known for her directorial debut Lady Godiva.

The 33-year-old debuted at just age 21, went on to write and direct Born of War, before this year directing Netflix feature film Noomi.

Having inherited the family bug of film production, Mr Jewson, who lives close to Upper Heyford near Bicester, set up his own advertising business in 2017.

Now, he has joined forces with fellow business owners Nick Nixon, 27, and Guy Benoist, 26, to craft a film portraying their love of cars.

The short film Twenty40 looks at how by 2040 combustion engine cars as we know them now will cease to be produced.

The trio, all self-confessed car enthusiasts, said: "We have all grown up in a world surrounded with cars and that has impacted our lives in a multitude of ways, some good and some bad.

Bicester Advertiser:

"Twenty40 has been produced to give credit to the good: incredible engineering, stunning aesthetics and people all over the world who have pushed the boundaries of cars; making them more reliable, faster, and economic."

'Twenty40: The end of super cars' features an Audi R8 being driven by Mr Benoist on the country's best roads and race courses.

It focuses on the tiny details of the car from its engine, to the pencils held in the cup holder.

In addition, local artist Dolly Mavies and composer Adrian Banks have produced a soundtrack.

Guy Benoist said: "It has been a real honour working with such talented individuals.

"We believe that what we have created, in our spare time, demonstrates the talents our younger generation can offer and how small local businesses really can compete with bigger organisations when it comes to producing high quality content."

The short film was released at the end of March and in two weeks racked up more than 2,500 views.
