While most movies cause the viewer to think camera angles, lighting or tone, there are some ( Trek . Eagle Eye . Fast ) with sequences and scenes leave you wondering, #8220;How the did they shoot that?#8221; is how the hell: Chase Car Inc.

Originally, the camera car world was of big trucks with camera and platforms bolted onto fronts, giving the whole rig a underbite look. As top-mounted and gyros became popular due to their lightness, central and ability to shoot 360 degrees most in the industry moved to a servo crane, often onto a Mercedes-Benz ML55.

After years of experience in and building camera cars for people, Jon and Marshall Chabot Chase Car Inc. Like of the industry, they too had the ML55, but the car had issues: the shocks wore out and they needed more After some searching, found the auto-leveling air suspension, stance and massive engine of the Cayenne ideal for mounting 800-lb jib.

They weren#8217;t alone, In fact, the Cayenne became the car for high speed chase winding road car commercials and in between.

But that#8217;s

No messing with the suspension, engine, frame, or anything

The team of five, plus the the equipment, a camera and of course the Scorpio crane with its gyro and three camera bring the weight to about 3 and the value to about a million #8212; which is exactly actors look like these guys#8217; wheels and start rolling.
