MOTOR racing fans are now getting a drone’s eye view thanks to a Leamington video company.
Infinite Pixel, which had worked with a number of recent high profile broadcasts including Jo Brand’s ‘Hell of a Walk’ Sports Relief challenge for the BBC, has been chosen by the Ford MSA Formula Team and the Renault Clio Cup to film the high octane championships this season.
The company which uses 360 degree cameras to capture every angle on the ground and from the air, filmed both teams for promotional footage to launch the season of events at Rockingham race track in Northamptonshire and was subsequently praised for the footage.
Alex Battipaglia, championship press officer for Ford MSA, said: “This has been the first season launch I have been responsible for and it was fantastic to know that I had such an assured and knowledgeable filming team to work with – it definitely helped make the day a lot easier.
“We were all very impressed with the professionalism of Infinite Pixel and the manner in which the company conducted itself – they were absolutely brilliant!”
Alex Harvey, managing director of Infinite Pixel, was pleased at a job well done.
He said: “This is high praise indeed from an organisation that requires the best of the best when it comes to filming. As you can imagine, these organisations need to be assured that they are working with responsive partners whether it is on the design and engineering of the cars to the filming of the events – it is a high pressure, high octane world which are very privileged to be part of.”
Infinite Pixel also uses drone cameras for national news and promotional campaigns.
