Camera: Canon 5D Mk II (various lenses), GoPro HD Hero
A fun little shoot (sort of a proof of concept for a related project) created with the help of some friends. We shot for two half-days around the top of the mountain and on the fantastic roads up there. There was a lot more footage left over from this "concept test" which may be used in a future cut. The GoPro was no issue at speed with only the suction cup mount to hold it on to the side of the Audi. The driving/pursuit shots were obtained by strapping a jib arm in to the back of a minivan.
The 300km/h speedo shot is a cheat, of course. No dangerous driving took place during this shoot :)
Special thanks to BlitzkriegAutowerks.ca for use of their equipment to get some of these shots.
