Rhys Millen Racing approached me to direct/direct photography on a short film

The RZRAPTOR is revealed driving over a crest. Using our DJI s1000 octocopter – we were able to do a converging reveal shot.

2

Tracking along side the RZRAPTOR through a rough whoops section of off road trail.

Ripping through the frame with a nice dirt and gravel trail.

One of the key features of the RZRAPTOR kit is that it allows for dual 5 gallon gas can storage, tool kit, and a spare tire.

Without scouting the location in advance, we found that the descend shot was a lot more dynamic than the climb at this specific spot.
