I was in Valley of Fire State Park yesterday shooting a moving 3D time-lapse on a 6 foot ramp when my unique setup caught the attention of a film crew working on a car commercial. I was happy to answer their questions since I had my own questions about their production. I asked if I could grab a few photos of the cars during the filming and they said go ahead – so this is a scene that you may soon see on TV, except in a horizontal format.
This 2 seat sports car will be released this week I understand – it is a joint venture between Toyota and Subaru. Subaru will market it as the BRZ, while Toyota will sell it under their Scion brand and will call it the FR-S. It will sell for around $25,000.
I often think I may have the best possible job out there – but after talking to the professional drivers who were able to race up and down the curvy roads through the park that were closed off by Highway Patrol – now I’m not so sure.
Update: It will be formally introduced tomorrow (Sunday) at the Long Beach Grand Prix as the marshal car.
