Master the art of video making and you’ll built the perfect Hot Wheels track in the world.
There are countless of purpose-built miniaturized race tracks for Hot Wheels, each one constructed in an exotic location or adopting intricate patterns to awe the viewer. But this particular one is the most mesmerizing we’ve seen yet.
By using a GoPro Hero4 Session mounted on a modified 2014 Pharadox car, 5MadMovieMakers send the Hot Wheel on an epic journey through a neighborhood and eight different track sections, all connected by a “teleporting tunnel”.
According to the video description, each section of the lengthy track worked on its own from tunnel to tunnel, as the camera + die-cast rig used to gravity alone to go through each one.
But before you start yelling “it’s faaaake”, bear in mind that there are 11 cuts in the video, 7 between locations, making the transition from one track to another as smooth as possible. The jump section and the loop section were filmed twice – in 30 fps and in 120 fps – in order to add the awesome slow-motion footage for the duration of both the jump and the loop.
But how did it work underwater? “Reasonably well”, although it fell off the track a few times. In order to make the plastic track stay submerged, a rock was attached to its end.
The footage was filmed in California and Colorado, and about 200 feet of track was used. But we’re probably keeping you from pressing the play button.
