Toyota Aqua Long Drive TVC

Patryk Kizny teamed up with a UK-based timelapser Chris Burton to work on latest Toyota Aqua Hybrid TVC shot in Dunnotar Castle, Scotland. The production side was handled by Dave Neilson of Filming in Scotland. Kizny & Burton were in charge of motion control and cinematography and worked along with Japanese director to achieve the results.
It took five shooting days and numerous prep days to execute 3 motion controlled shots in parallel in a perfect sync with the Sun movement to capture the beauty of the site at the dawn.

Two 5-m long multiaxis motion control rigs were deployed with a 3rd assisting 2m unit. The shoot posed serious technical challenges not only because of the simultaneous camera angles but also extreme humidity at the shore.
