Artem Case Studies

Sky Sports F1 BSKYB

The new season of F1 has begun and Artem was asked by BSkyB to help with the new promotional trailer. The trailer shows the effects of a speeding F1 car on the road and the drivers' bodies pulling manhole covers out of a road from the vacuum they create, and shooting tears from the drivers' eyes as they brake at high speed.

3 replica manhole covers were cut on our CNC machine and mounted to a section of road surface which was connected to a compressed air mortar, allowing our technicians to shoot the manhole covers out of the road surface at force.

We also created a micro bore tube rig that could be glued to the actor's face to deliver exaggerated tear drops from the corner of the eye; the actor was then attached to a cantilevered platform that allowed him to lie facing downwards in a "locked off" position so that the tears would fall away from the face.
