It’s always a good thing to turn up at a shoot and hear the words “Here are the keys to the Ferrari and Lambo, I’ll get the Aston Martin ready…”
Filming moving cars involved mounting one of my cameras with the Cinetics CineSquid suction camera mount on a GorillaPod. Thankfully it gripped on very tightly and all was well. They have been field-tested on a car at 80MPH and the outside of a plane at 200MPH but I wasn’t about to test that one out.
The style of the film involved editing several clips together to make moving sequences so you get to see lots of the cars in a short time. We also recorded the crazy loud sounds of engines firing up.
