Just before Christmas I was approached by Performance PR Ltd, and asked if I would like to watch them shoot a video with a difference for Alfa Romeo. Intrigued, I said yes, and on the 5th January 2012 I headed to the venue, which was the SkyDome in Coventry, where I met with Dominic Vizor and the rest of the team.
The video, which was shot entirely on iPhones using FiLMiC Pro, included an Alfa Romeo Giulietta, an ice rink, two professional ice hockey players from Team Blaze, a stunt driver (Paul Swift), a film director and of course (the rest of us) the film crew.
The day went well, with the Giulietta's "Vehicle Dynamic Control" system performing well on the ice, and against the two ice hockey players. The Giulietta with the aid of stunt driver Paul Swift even managed to score a goal or two (see video).
In total there were about 6 iPhones used with a bunch of accessories (see kit list below), which included my DiffCase protected iPhone 4, which was magnetically attached to the car bonnet and drivers door with the aid of my Joby Gorillapod Magnetic, before being spun around the ice.
The kit used on the day included:
- FiLMiC Pro
- Joby Gorillapod Magnetic
- Glif & Glif+
- Fostex AR-4i
- Flycam Nano
So now you know what, when and how, now here it is, the video in all its glory ;)
