G/MOTION’ x Motocrane PromotionVideo | This is the shooting scene. | 1st Festa, The films nominated.

Behind the scenes of the promo video. Here is a shooting site that you can’t usually see.


We are introducing the films nominated at the first International Auto Film Festa in the order of their submissions. This time, it is an entry from Japan for “G/MOTION’ x Motocrane Promotion Video”. Produced by G-motion Co., Ltd. TEAM G/MOTION’. Some of you have wondered, “Huh?” but this video is a behind-the-scenes work of the previously introduced “Team G/MOTION’ TCR-JAPAN Honda Civic TCR.



A camera suddenly appears. It was mounted at a large crane, but it was mounted on the roof of the Stagea (M35).
The scene while actually running on the circuit continues. Running side by side with the drama car, how to move the camera, and various situations are conveyed. Camera operation in the car is moved by equipment like radio control propo.
Cars and cars. You can see the tension in shooting while driving.。
At the end, you can see the entire Stagea with the crane loaded. This is a PV for an onboard camera crane.



The video shooting scene is not visible in the video. Only works shot there are always available in the world. In some sense, it is perceived as being behind the scenes, or as something that should not be seen.
Even when watching TV, there are productions where staff are intentionally shown in variety shows, but basically, the staff and equipment are just necessary for creating the video, and as elements of the video they are a nuisance.



That’s why I think many viewers will find this kind of scenery fresh. The bigger the equipment, the more exciting it will be.
When I was a child, I felt like I was excited about a construction site where large construction machines work. A place where only professionals and craftsmen can enter. That is the stage for this episode, and it is also the main character.


What was usually in the background is now treated as the main character. The video is a complete reversal.
A racing car is shown in some cuts, but it’s interesting because it plays a supporting role in this video. There’s also some good editing that makes it look like that.



In the previous work introduction, I touched on “How did you shoot a running racing car?” but here was the answer.
In the award announcement video for the 1st International Auto Film Festa, I mentioned that “There may be a way to combine two videos into one.” Still, honestly, I think it’s quite tricky.
In that sense, it may be said that it was a good decision to separate this into two videos.



By the way, even if you look at camera cars overseas, they often wear the primary “matte black” body color.。
This is just a result of the body color to prevent reflections and reflections, but the body looks fantastic. The ruggedness of the crane is emphasized, creating a macho atmosphere.



CG car videos are good, but if more people become interested in live-action filming scenes through works like this, there will be high hopes that there will be more variety in car videos in the world.
I want to use this to take videos. It stirs up all kinds of imaginations. (Written by SHIMIZU)
