It's good to have friends. Especially when they need you to film the new Lexus IS F V8 rocket ship. Our amigo Brian from o2 Creative Solutions in Detroit said “We need a beautiful location, lots of room for speed and we’re gonna light stuff on fire”! So we scouted an old desert airport surrounded by the towering Sierra Mountains, found the nearest town for food, lodging and generators, loaded up the grip truck and camera’s and we were off. The objective was to shoot o2 Creative Solutions footage for a concept film of the IS running an obstacle course through of rings of fire. Some shots required the cameras up high, so an 80-foot tower and camera jib came in handy. Some of the fun was working with the pyro guys testing different flammable gas combinations to get the right color flame. We rolled cameras at magic hour. V8 prototype Lexus, a deserted runway and rings of fire. That’s hot.
