Team G/MOTION’ TCR-JAPAN honda civic TCR | The charm of fighting machines | 1st Festa, The films nominated.

It’s a perfect live-action video that makes you think it’s the opening of a racing game.


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 “Team G/MOTION’ TCR-JAPAN Honda Civic TCR.” Produced by G/MOTION’ Ltd. TEAM G/MOTION’.



HONDA CIVIC TCR is running around the Tsukuba circuit. The machine itself is participating in TCR-JAPAN. The driving scenes are tracked from multiple perspectives: on the track side by side, inside the car, and from the audience seats. As if reliving a race scene, viewers experience a simulated circuit. The driver’s perspective can be either the driver’s or the spectator’s.
It is a video work that allows you to fully enjoy the charm of this car.



The fighting cars are beautiful. That’s the charm of a racing car running on a circuit. The bulge of the body, the setting of the vehicle height, and the real aero that wraps around the entire vehicle. There is a reason for everything and beauty itself without waste. The sense of scale of the machine is firmly expressed in the video, and the dynamic driving is becoming more powerful.

In the first place, no one other than the racing driver can see the racing cars running on the circuit from this distance. It is an entirely extraordinary world for many people.



In terms of technology, in addition to the camera and shooting technology, there is a harmonious cooperation between the racing car and the camera car. This video can only be realized by linking them at a high level.
Racing cars are machines that are not good at driving slowly. A machine built for track speed can stabilize conditions by maintaining racing speed. In other words, even if it is not an aggressive run, it runs at a certain speed.

That means the camera car running parallel to the machine is also at the same speed. Even the slightest mistake can lead to big trouble. This video shows the breathing of each driver.



What makes this video interesting is that it is well-arranged without hinting at the advanced techniques of the filming or staff. The beauty, strength, and sturdiness of the machine are clearly expressed.

The reason the viewer can concentrate is because the image is stable.


By the way, I noticed no other machines appear in this video. It is taken with a complete circuit charter. It’s natural to say that it’s natural because the camera car enters, but… But what an extravagant promotional video.

However, in other words, you can say that the time you can shoot is limited.

The driver and camera crew produce such a great performance under various conditions. I sincerely respect the high level of teamwork.(Written by SHIMIZU)
