Fox Sports Design / La Huella: Nascar Underground


Fox Sports Design and Madrid-based VFX house, La Huella, collaborate on a Nascar adventure that gives us a sweet new perspective on racing.  Great compositing and 3D work seamlessly match up the live-action to create some interesting angles and fun shots.

The live-action scenes were filmed by Fox Sports Creative Director, Mark Simmons, while La Huella’s 3D team was off and running.  “This was one of the more difficult shoots we’ve ever undertaken,” said Simmons. “Safely suspending actors 14 feet off the ground on a glass floor was a huge logistical problem.”

This whole concept really lends itself to putting the camera in some interesting viewpoints, giving us some nicely designed compositions and amusing moments (the bolts falling toward camera is a great touch).  It also makes the cars really feel like they’re the boss! Thanks for the tip, Sean.
