#SFX, cars and ‘The Blackbird’

I’m not a petrol head, but I do like cars so I could not resist a Gizmag article about how cars are filmed for commercials and movies. This is the ‘Blackbird’ and it is the most amazing car you will never see.

Gotta love CGI [computer generated imagery]. 🙂

Happy weekend,

I am the kind of person who always has to know why things are the way they are so my interests range from genetics and biology to politics and what makes people tick. For fun I play online mmorpgs, read, listen to a music, dance when I get the chance and landscape my rather large block. Work is writing. When a story I am working on is going well I'm on cloud nine. On bad days I go out and dig big holes... View all posts by acflory

    Ye gads, I’ll never be able to watch a car chase sequence in a movie again without feeling I’m being conned and I’m just watching a load of digital codswallop!!! 🙂

      lmao – if it’s too good to be true…. 😉 But you must admit the Blackbird is pretty amazing in its own right. I can’t even imagine how they came up with the technology to allow it to change size etc.

    I can envision some pretty cool driving sequences in movies. Of course they are pitching the marketing of cars—not artful film making…

      -grin- I can think of a couple of commercials that straddle that boundary. But apparently the Blackbird is used in movies as well. I should look up to see if it was used in Mad Max Fury Road…hmmm….
