Tangerine Films recently produced a spot for Jaguar’s new XF range, produced entirely on the Red One Camera System, with full backup & on-set support from Axis Films.
Shot on location in the south of France north of Nice & Monaco, the cameras were subjected to the extremes, mounting on fast moving tracking vehicles and attached to the cars via the Quickrig system. Helicopter Film Services also provided a Red Camera-modified Wescam for some spectacular sequences in the Verdon Gorge.

The sting is that the stories were true and the man portrayed in the story was really his very own Grandad.
