Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro Used on Shell V‑Power Experience

PostWed Aug 17, 2022 5:05 pm

Blackmagic Design today announced that Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro digital film cameras were strapped to a V8 race car to shoot the Shell V-Power Racing Team Supercars Experience. The tailor made experience was created by experiential agency Traffik and gives fans attending race day the exhilaration of what it feels like to do a hot lap around Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit with Anton de Pasquale behind the wheel.

The production was shot by Anthony Rose, one of Australia’s most successful directors and cinematographers, and involved rigging 12 Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pros all over the car to give viewers the most visceral experience of being inside a V8 race car. The hot lap was shot with the cameras strategically positioned inside/outside the car to create a high fidelity experience that lives inside a custom built shipping container with a surround sound mix and 4D effects to complement the unique 32:9 aspect ratio.

Rose said there were plenty of interesting challenges with the project, not the least of which was finding cameras that would be able to handle the car hitting speeds of over 270 kilometers per hour (168 miles per hour). “After extensive discussion and testing we chose the Blackmagic Design Pocket 6K Pros for their rugged build and low profile, as well as their light weight. We then used Blackmagic RAW, which allowed us to crop the image to make the most of our 32:9 ultra wide aspect ratio,” he said.
