Fast Furious 8 Uses AR Technology In Stunts, Sets New Standard For Film Making
To celebrate their new partnership with the upcoming "Fast & Furious" movie, Castrol Edge conceptualized and came up with a challenge. The concept involves augmented reality (AR) and a supercharged V8-powered Jaguar F-Type. With the collaboration of Michelle Rodriguez, one of the perennial stars of the "Fast & Furious" franchise, stunt driver Debbie Evans was challenged to take on the icy landscape of the Yukon in Canada, where her car would be the Jaguar F-Type 5.0 Supercharged V8 R AWD.
Castrol Edge Creates AR For Fate Of The Furious
According to Car Scoops, it can be seen in the short film titled "Titanium Ice". Evans can be seen trying to maneuver her F-Type around virtual obstacles - tanks to helicopters, missiles, and of course, explosions like the ones they use in the movies. Evans said that driving in mixed reality was probably one of the toughest challenges that she has ever faced in her career.
The Video also promotes that using Castrol EDGE will give drivers the confidence they need to push themselves and their cars to the extreme. As seen in the video, it gave Evans the boost that she needs for her to navigate through the dangerous course.
How The Scene Was Created
According to PR Newswire, Castrol Edge relied on the experts from production studio UNIT9 in order to develop a bespoke headset to create the said mixed reality. Blending computer-generated images with live action scenes created an intense, action-packed driving experience for Evans while driving her powerful F-Type. "Fast & Furious" fans who want to see more action-thriller scenes, involving fast cars and explosions are pumped for the upcoming The Fate of the Furious movie.
The upcoming "Fast & Furious" franchise will hit the big screen this coming April 2017, worldwide. More updates and sneak peeks will be released the coming days, as April is just right around the corner.
