We spent 16 fantastic days on location in southern Spain shooting at a variety of locations in and around Malaga, Marbella, Almuñécar and Almeria.

The stills part of the project was shot by long time collaborator Graham Thorp. Shooting on the Hasselblad H2 with a P65 back with Hasselblad lenses for beautifully crisp images. The photos were a combination of statics and dynamic images. For the dynamic driving images we once again brought in rig company Move & Shoot and one of their excellent technicians, David Turnley.

For the film shoot we once again collaborated with French DOP Jean-Babptist Jay and his assistant Xavier Rodriguez who arrived from Paris to join the team. The camera car and flight head team were brought in from Barcelona. The camera car was provided by Carlos Sánchez Garcia, Camara Car.

The film material was originated on the 5D MKII using Canon L prime lenses, operated by Martin with additional footage captured on the amazing Arri Alexa using Angenieux glass (Camera Car footage) by Jean-Baptist.

The film and photos are currently in the post production stage, and both are looking absolutely amazing! Unfortunately we cant reveal at this stage the model of the car but as soon as the images go live we’ll upload them, watch this space…
