Worcester Bosch

We are pleased to share the new Worcester Bosch racing teaser video, by Hipster, which is bristling with high energy and Top Gear styling. Hipster gave us a call in Jan 2017 with an exciting brief ‘We need some dramatic aerials shots chasing a BMW M4 around Bedford Aerodrome using the ALEXA Mini, can you help?’ Naturally, we jumped at the chance – chasing cars is our speciality, and so is the ALEXA Mini.

The weather forecast was dodgy and the first morning was spent anxiously watching the rain pelt the Hipster crew who had to cram a lot of filming into a challenging short Winter day. We set up and waited patiently in a hangar (next to Jonathan Palmer’s old F1 car) for an opportunity to fly and eventually, it came. We fired up the drone, cranked the camera to 50fps and had a lot of fun trying to keep up with the stunt driver. Delivering 425hp, the M4 looked insane drifting through the fresh surface water, leaving perfect trails of turbulent spray behind it. DP Karl Poyzer and Director Jake Barrett were watching everything happen live via a Connex HD downlink and Atomos Shogun monitor (for quick playback). It’s always nice to hear over-excited clients cheering beside us. Our finely-tuned Freefly Systems MoVI Pro stabilised the Alexa Mini perfectly, handling some fairly severe manoeuvres from the powerful ALTA 8 drone. Day 2 was spent at the incredible Milbrook Proving Ground, but sadly we can’t talk too much about that one… it’s a fascinating place to fly, but shrouded in secrecy. Thank you Hipster for an awesome job.
