The tiniest police chase ever seen, made using the world's smallest 'pocket video projectors'. Featuring an escaped convict, a determined cop and a fully armed police helicopter, Speed of Light takes 'projection mapping' to a whole new (and low) level.
Speed of Light was all projected and filmed FOR REAL - there's no CGI trickery.
- The car and helicopter are toys bought from a model shop filmed against greenscreen.
- As well as using the world's smallest projectors from MicroVision, we also partially filmed using the world's smallest HD camera.
This film was made with blood, sweat, tears and no budget. If you enjoyed it, please consider letting me know with a little love in the tip jar.
