Reprising our role from last year, we were at the Goodwood festival of speed this year providing onsite postproduction for our friends at INP media for their client, a major German car manufacturer.
Two crews were supplying footage constantly for four days and our job was to sift through 30 hours of footage plus clips from onboard cameras and cut two videos that summed up the event. This was all produced on site and because of the volume of material and the speed of which it needed to be turned around we used Avid Media Composer 6. Using the software’s AMA functionality meant we didn’t have to import the media, just transfer it which saved a huge amount of time when dealing with 22 32 Gigabyte SxS cards.Two videos were cut, one was uploaded on Friday evening and one on Sunday evening.
POV’s specialist filming services were commissioned recently by cult motoring website Pistonheads. We were asked to film PH editor Chris Rosamond as he visited Nissan’s technical facility at Germany’s infamous Nürburgring to see the new Nissan GT-R in testing.
As well as an exclusive interview with the father of this unique car, GT-R program chief Kazutoshi Mizuno, he also took three breathtaking laps of this world famous circuit in the GT-R. Two in the passenger seat with legionary ringmeisters Toshio Suzuki and Dirk Schoysman and one at the controls under Dirk’s expert instruction.
This is where the real fun started. With the ring costing thousands of euros an hour to rent there was no time to waste. POV fitted the test car with 2 specialist mini cameras and full size camera using specialist mounts to record these laps for the PH readers in full 720p high definition. To date we have produced 17 separate video clips for the website, some of which have already racked up in excess of 7000 hits.
Thanks PH for getting us in for such a fun project!
