We were contacted by Atelier Markgraph Frankfurt to service a shoot for the launch of the Maybach 57S at the Shanghai Motor show. The car was top secret and had to be kept under cover at all times. The shoot was at the amazing Liwa desert in Abu Dhabi (the location for the recently shot and soon to be released Star Wars 7!) Notable features were that the film was all shot on 5D, even using it on a flight head and shot maker vehicle and in a helicopter. The film also features motion control time-lapse to dramatise the stunning desert night sky.
'Found us exceptional desert locations for our car shoot and ran a seamless shoot in what could have been a challenging environment! Very professional - we would be happy to work with them again.' Film producer Peter Eberhard, Atelier Markgraph with Raid Films, Frankfurt, Germany.
