POV’s specialist filming services were commissioned recently by cult motoring website Pistonheads. We were asked to film PH editor Chris Rosamond as he visited Nissan’s technical facility at Germany’s infamous Nürburgring to see the new Nissan GT-R in testing.
As well as an exclusive interview with the father of this unique car, GT-R program chief Kazutoshi Mizuno, he also took three breathtaking laps of this world famous circuit in the GT-R. Two in the passenger seat with legionary ringmeisters Toshio Suzuki and Dirk Schoysman and one at the controls under Dirk’s expert instruction.
This is where the real fun started. With the ring costing thousands of euros an hour to rent there was no time to waste. POV fitted the test car with 2 specialist mini cameras and full size camera using specialist mounts to record these laps for the PH readers in full 720p high definition. To date we have produced 17 separate video clips for the website, some of which have already racked up in excess of 7000 hits.
Thanks PH for getting us in for such a fun project!
