The Process

Both on-location filming and an innovative CG pipeline were utilised to create a hyper-realistic representation of both the new Edge 540 V3 and the Las Vegas Motor Speedway – the location for the October leg of the 2016 Red Bull Air Race. The raw footage was shot with Martin Sonka at Shepperton Studios on high-end Arri Amira cameras. It was then combined with cutting-edge CGI and VFX footage, which highlighted the key aspects of the Edge 540 V3, including groundbreaking modifications and refinements by both Martin Sonka’s and Peter Besenyei’s flight teams.
