Late in November of 2015, The Circuit of the Americas track in Austin, TX became the focus of our attention with over twenty of the new Cadillac V series cars on the track to show the world what they could do. Untitled Inc brought Scott Zacaroli on as Director and Matt Trub of HDaerial as Aerial Director of Photography to capture some of those spectacular moments of the Cadillac V Series Aerials COTA Austin TX. We used the Cineflex Ultra with the RED Epic Carbon Fiber Dragon camera and the Canon 4K Digital Zoom 30mm – 300mm lens. With the V series cars moving at speeds of up to 150 mph, the Cineflex Ultra was able to provide smooth and rock solid aerial footage at 4K of these cars moving around the track. The Cineflex ULTRA is lighter and more compact than competing systems, making it the superior choice for aircraft especially in fast moving circumstances like the Cadillac V Series Performance Labs at The Circuit of The Americas in Austin, TX.
This project was ultimately edited down into a two and a half minute video promoting the Cadillac V series and The Drive of your Life. Clearly, Cadillac is introducing new technology that will change the way consumers will look at Cadillac when considering their next car purchase. What better way to show case this new automobile technology than with the latest and greatest gyron stabilization technology ….the Cineflex Ultra and the RED Epic Carbon Fiber Dragon with Matt Trub, Aerial Director of Photography behind the controls.
