Mad Mike Conquers Highlands
I am very proud to have been the Cinematographer on this clip with Mad Mike Whiddett and his Rad Bul.
Director Ryan Heron and myself had previously shot the Conquer the Crown clip, and it was great to work together with Mike again.
We had one day to film the clip, and we could only drive the car on the track between 8am and 6pm, so we needed to be fully prepared.
To achieve this tight schedule Ryan and I broke down the sections with the team and we shot only what we needed.
I used several different cameras, and I kept the camera and grip teams busy by shooting one setup while they were prepping and rigging the next.
I am very happy that we managed to keep the quality high. It's a testament to the talented crew behind the scenes. The reaction to this film by the fans has been great!
To see some more images there is a terrific Behind the Scenes video from Andy Deere and Heath Patterson.
Huge thanks to Miles Holden for the photos!
