Auto Action Developments Ltd was founded during the making of SPECTRE by Neil Layton and Chris Corbould to handle all vehicle modifications required by stunt drivers including roll cages, safety fuel systems, hydraulic handbrakes and safety seat configurations.
Auto Action Developments has the ability to work with directors, production designers and stunt coordinators to design, fabricate, test and film any bespoke or unique vehicle.
Crew working with Auto Action come from the worlds of Formula 1 and Rallycross, many having worked for Aston Martin and Jaguar Land Rover where they have gained valuable experience and qualifications. The company works from permanent well-equipped workshops in Longcross Studios close to Pinewood and Shepperton Studios and with the advantage of having a two-mile test track on site as an extensive test facility. The workshop holds an extensive range of stunt equipment in stock ensuring a fast and efficient turnaround of vehicles.
Auto Action Developments have also co-developed the Gemini System.
This revolutionary system opens up the possibility for any vehicle to be driven driverless and remotely for extreme stunts or by a precision driver in a pod from anywhere around the vehicle allowing lead actors to provide exhilarating close up shots whilst traveling dynamically and at speed.
Since 2015, Auto Action Developments has worked on the following Productions:
Christopher Robin (Period Vehicles from 1922-1952)
The Rhythm Section (Classic Land Rover Defenders/Discoverys 1988-2018 vehicles)
No Time To Die, the latest James Bond (Aston Martin DB5- V8 Vantage S - DBS Superleggera- Maserati, Range Rover SVR and soon to be released Land Rover Defender).
