Moving Picture Provides Grip, Lighting, and Camera for Spring Valley

Short Film for Toyota Racing and Michael Waltrip Racing

Moving Picture recently provided a camera package, grip truck, and lighting for a Spring Valley production for Toyota Racing and Michael Waltrip Racing. Shot in sunny Daytona Beach, this satirical short film played out some of the more famous scenes from movies such as Forest Gump and Fight Club with a racecar driver twist.

Spring Valley requested an ARRI Alexa camera on a Fisher 11 Dolly with Angenieux Optimo Zooms and Cooke Prime lenses, along with a full array of Kino Flos and HMIs. Their shot list was extensive, utilizing special effects, car rigs, and even a creative custom moving camera rig by Key Grip, Todd Smith, of a golf cart used as a camera car.
