Fast & Furious Live
We created three customised vehicles and provided the automation behind a series of high-octane stunts. Our technical department put new developments into practice, allowing us to deliver controlled motion to technical set-pieces.
We provided automation engineering for a fuel tanker ‘crash’: the tanker travelling along a 50m track at up to 3m/s. Our team delivered additional technical support at short notice, creating a 3D rig for a Water Tower stunt that was working in just a few hours; and drives for a four-tonne train.
Our scenic team created a ‘Navistar’ military truck, fuel tanker and submarine. Taking a stripped back chassis, the truck was customised with additions including 3D printed grille and a stunt fire chamber. The tanker was given a distressed finish while the submarine comprised a clever GRP and fabric frame, built around an adapted forklift.
