I spend a lot of time geeking out on photography, and one of my favorite stops on the web is advertising photographer Chase Jarvis’s blog. He recently featured a post on how Nissan shot a car commercial, but featured a scaled down RC car as the subject. Much of the footage they shot was taken with a Canon 5D camera (probably a MII) as well as a RC helicopter, and an RC car, getting me thinking of how cool it would be to do something similar with mountain bikes, and a larger scale RC car for the POV footage. In this making of video, they even show that they considered a GoPro for the POV shots. (It was deemed to low quality for their production) My brother is a big RC car nut, so this one is for him:
And the finished product:
It’s pretty cool how they went into the detail with the RC car consultant brought in to make the cars drift. Good stuff. How cool would it be to have one of those RC helicopter set ups for filming somewhere like Post Canyon or Black Rock? It gets the mind thinking..
