Munderbar! was on location to capture all the action at a special event the day after the Monaco GP, at the nearby Paul Ricard Circuit. Sebastian Vettel, David Coulthard and Sebastian Buemi took a few lucky guests of Infiniti on the ride of their life in Infiniti road cars and a specially designed three seater F1 car.
We’re really pleased to be able to tell the world about our secret project in New York. We shot a music video for the track “Watch Me Work” starring double Grammy-winning R&B star Melanie Fiona and Formula One double World Champion Sebastian Vettel, which is released today in advance of the Belgian Grand Prix in Spa.
An incredibly intense shooting schedule which started at 4:30am with the Weehawken police closing roads for us to get some exterior car shots, followed by location shooting in a huge (100,000 sq ft!) disused WWII aircraft hangar, where our art department started to built the huge speaker installation seen in the video. Director Aaron Platt’s vision of a team of ‘vigilantes’ coming together to create a one-off performance piece started to take hold, as the massive space was lit for all the interior car scenes.
Watch our ‘Behind The Scenes’ featurette to find out more about this groundbreaking project:
An early 5am start to catch the sunrise and a rendezvous with the Weehawken police, who have kindly closed the roads for us to get some early morning shots with our Ultimate Arm rig, which has come to us straight from filming the latest James Bond film in Turkey.
We’re filming Sebastian and DC taking various dignitaries and members of the press corps on exhibition laps around the proposed circuit of the 2013 US Grand Prix. They finish their speedy laps with impromptu ‘doughnuts’ much to the delight of the assembled audience of local politicians, media representatives and the race fans in attendance.
