LeMans For The Street

Putting a LeMans winning race car onto the street is no small challenge. Tangent Vector worked closely with Porsche to sort out logistics of it all and make it happen.

Support crew, additional vehicles, and the removal and replacement of various signage were all significant challenges that had to be dealt with once deep into the post-process.

To help give the film a fun interlude we used FilmConvert Nitrate to spice things up when the Porsche 935 was introduced and slowly transitioned back to classic 35mm film emulation for the remainder of the film once the Porsche 919 Evo takes over the frame.

As with most automotive content color was key to unifying the footage together into a cohesive end product. Great care was taken to ensure the vehicle, road, and surroundings remain consistent from shot to shot often spanned across multiple days and locations.
