ZERO - 400 - ZERO
This film broke two records - the Bugatti Chiron was to set the 0-400-0 benchmark record, and we broke the record for the worlds fastest tracking shot.
The film is presented in realtime, so that it was unquestionably authentic. Every gear change, every speedometer shot is accurate.
The speedometer is accurately modelled and animated in 3D as it was unsafe to film the gauge in real life and achieve the lens closeup, and is frame for frame perfect to the correct speed of the car from GPS telemetry. The natural look of the grade for the film was requested by the client to mirror that of the record photography.
