Made a clip about Ken Block's new rally car.

I went to Wales a few weeks ago to make a clip for Monster World Rally Team.

To quote Ken:
"Despite the fundamental similarities between stage rally, rallycross and gymkhana, my World Rally championship Ford Fiesta just can't do what my gymkhana Fiesta can, and vice versa. But running three cars is a logistical nightmare, so we built one car that can be transformed to suit each discipline."

MWRT thought stop motion would be a suitable technic to show the car.
The stuff was shot in three days, with less than 30 min (might have been 15) to shoot the car in action.
My thought was to shoot the action on film to compliment the stop motion roots instead of HD video. And I like film so why not?
Many ideas we had for this clip weren't possible to shoot, we had next to zero sleep for 2-3 days and it was one of the most gruesome experiences of my life. If only we had another 1-2 days to shoot it.. the reason for only having a very limited time was technical issues / engines etc that were late and what not.

But here's the result. Not close to what we had envisioned, but it's still serves it's purpose. Hope you like it.
Ken picked out the tune from the Scott Pilgrim movie.

Love the stop motion! Did you get film footage (Ken's silhouette at the end from the old gymkhana movie?)
