Senna | Working Title

As a Formula One fan, there’s been nothing more rewarding than my small contributions to SENNA. While in-house at Working Title Films, I was fortunate enough to join regular screenings of the film as it worked it’s way down from a 5 hour edit to the final film – proving notes to the producer of the course of the edit.

Ayrton Senna’s remarkable story, charting his physical and spiritual achievements on the track and off, his quest for perfection, and the mythical status he has since attained, is the subject of SENNA, a documentary feature that spans the racing legend’s years as an F1 driver, from his opening season in 1984 to his untimely death a decade later. Far more than a film for F1 fans, SENNA unfolds a remarkable story in a remarkable manner, eschewing many standard documentary techniques in favour of a more cinematic approach that makes full use of astounding footage, much of which is drawn from F1 archives and is previously unseen.
