    Loved those shots. What are you using to mount the cam to the car? I'm toying with the idea of mounting an XM2 with a suction pad, but am so scared the cam will be crushed against the sceneray or another car! I've been meaning to shoot footage of my brother in law and his mates sweeping past on motorbikes.

    The begining shot is the classic starting grid fly around. Can look something special with a stabilising system. I just picked up my glidecam and ran around a car just now (balance wasn't quite there and I was being v sloppy (way too much bounce - arm still aches from the weekend!), but you get the picture )

    Hey Marc,
    Glad you enjoyed it.
    The mount on the car is just a swivel mount attached to a suction cup (auto dent puller). The camera is a remote "lipstic cam" run back to a DV cam inside the car. I wouldnt reccommend mounting a full camera outside the car in any way. I actually made the video out of boredom one day, and to test out some different camera angles. I was surprised how well it worked. The music is a band called Juno Reactor http://www.reactorleak.com/ I believe they are from your side of the pond. The song is JARDIN DE CECILE off of the Bible of dreams album.

    I'm assuming it's another name for a bullet cam (which looks like a lipstick)
