Chasing Perfection

Behind the Scenes

Porsche + Chase Car: Chasing Perfection - Commercial

Christopher Nolan’s Inception is hands down one of our favorite movies of all time, and we channeled our inner Nolan in producing ‘Chasing Perfect’ where we took a meta look at what goes into making a car chase happen and breaking it down into its various elements. To us, it wasn’t all about the chase, it was about how the chase was shot and the brilliant connection of man and machine that made it all happen.

For our second spot, the Fastest Camera Car in the World, we wanted to push the equipment to the limit in order to test Chase Car’s claim that they had the fastest camera car in the world. We found ourselves a radar speed gun and actually pushed the fully equipped, fully loaded (with 6 people) camera car all the way to 104 miles per hour on the straight away at Willows Springs International Raceway. We got it on camera of course, and lived to tell the tale.

In concert with our Behind the Scenes documentary Behind the Chase, these spots served as part of a ad campaign by Chase Car and Beverly Hills Porsche to showcase both the glamor and grit of these amazing machines we’ve come to love and lust for.
