My principle task as Art Director on The World's Fastest Indian was to recreate Speed Week 1962 on the Bonneville Salt Flats, where legendary Burt Monro (Anthony Hopkins) seeks to set a land speed record. Here is a wide shot of "The Village" we created.
  Here is a closer view of our recreation of Speed Week 1962. We found a man who had been there as a boy, and closely studied his old kodachrome slides to be as exacting as we could be. Essentially every tent and structure was a custom built recreation from those slides.
