Mazda, Polecam and the Wall of Death

This was a job that Polecam Owner Operators, Cutting Edge Productions, did for a production company called Dumpling Productions. They were woking for Mazda cars, and the brief was to drive a Mazda 2 round a Wall of Death.

Yes, you did read that correctly, drive a Mazda at 90 degrees around a Wall of Death!

They loved the Polecam, and it gets a specific mention in the behind-the-scenes clip.

Tim Matthews of Cutting Edge says “The challenge was to show the viewer the sheer height of the walls. To put a camera into angles that just wouldn’t be obtainable without the Polecam. The brief was to defy gravity with the camera while a few foot below they did the impossible.”

Here’s a clip of the final edit:
