Recently, Skylar Smith and I set out to test my RED Epic’s 300fps capabilities. How did we test them? By having Skylar throw water balloons, tomatoes, and spray diet coke and mentos at my face – all while letting the EPIC capture the action at 300 frames per second and a shutter of 1/2500th of a second. Enough to capture some of the quickest of reactions, movements, and water droplets. Enjoy and expect more high speed action in our future projects.
BFGoodrich Tires – G-Force Sport Comp 2 promo
Production Company: TMA
Project: My friends at BFGoodrich/The Martin Agency came to me with a new tire and concept for the launch video. The concept was two cars equipped with Comp 2s playing a game of “skate” with cars – one upping each other each round with more challenging driving. I then scripted the driving sequence and worked with the stunt drivers (Rich Minga & Steve Holiday) to push the Hurst Camaro SS & Hurst Challenger SRT to the limit. Utilizing Pursuit System‘s Cayenne and ultimate arm – to keep the camera moving and the footage dynamic.
