A FILM fanatic with a passion for editing has turned nail-biting drama from action hero Jason Bourne on its head.

The video above takes a scene from The Bourne Identity – where Bourne finds himself in a car chase – and shows us what it would be like if the streets of Paris were swapped for the streets of Portsmouth.

The video was put together by Paul Minay, 45, from Havant, who runs The Minatour Facebook page and YouTube channel.

He says that the video is one of many he has put together, after discovering a passion for filmmaking.

Paul said: ‘I only started doing this about a year ago, but have made around 13 videos in that time.

‘I drove around Southsea and Portsmouth about two weeks ago in my van, filming different parts of the city.

‘A few evenings of video editing later and I was able to share it with the rest of the world.’

Paul, who shoots the videos with his son and younger brother, says that the thrill comes from people watching and sharing the videos.

He said: ‘All I use is a simple editing project and my imagination.

‘I watch movies, see something and it makes a connection in my brain – I just work with it from there.

‘All I want to do is have people watch my videos and end up with a smile on their face.

‘There’s certainly no money involved. In fact, I lost money from making it because I got a fine from the council for driving in a bus lane!’
