Solomon Commercials were quickly in touch again after we completed production of their Company Film (standbyproductions.co.uk/work/solomon-commercials/) and wanted us capture and tell the story of their independent testing of the 'Solomon Slipstream Vehicle'. The test took place at the Millbrook vehicle testing facility and was carried out by independent Tesco drivers. The Slipstream vehicle did a number of tests against a standard vehicle. Starting off as a standard 'box vehicle' the, Slipstream model was then adapted for each circuit to eventually make it a complete Slipstream model, with all the aerodynamic features uncovered and in full working order. The results were fantastic for the Solomon Commercials team, managing to save an impressive 10.67% fuel saving. For more information visit: solocom.co.uk
STANDBY PRODUCTIONS worked closely with Solomon Commercials, to make sure we captured the essence and story of the testing. Working with the Millbrook security team we were able to get out on the track and hang out of the side of their people carrier in order to get some lovely tracking shots of the vehicle traveling around the bowl track. It was a fascinating shoot and one we really enjoyed working on and we're really pleased that it gained Solomon such fantastic results and that we were there to capture it!
