Scope of Work
- interior & exterior of XSR48
- action aerial shots via helicopter and from 2nd boat
- establish Dubai and UAE scenery in the background
This was a last minute launch for the Dubai International Boat Show. The XSR48 came late out of customs and the crew still had to fix quite a bit of things and test run the engine and all electronic systems before the shoot could actually start and in 2x days the Boat Show will open.
Everything (interior, exterior, aerials and boat to boat shots) were done the day prior to the show opened. All edits were done directly at agencies office and they completed their artwork for the brochure, exhibition stand and videos in the same night and next day afternoon everything was in place for clients to visit their booth.
