First ever Phantom Highspeed VR shoot for BBC nominated for Jackson Hole Film Festival Award

We at Highspeedworx always try to break the boundaries. We perform at our best, when clients ask us to do the near impossible. The result: WE HAVE BEEN NOMINATED by JACKSON HOLE FILM FESTIVAL in the “Best Interactive” category. 

This time round, BBC wanted to showcase the illusive caracal’s flight in slow-motion, however, in a 360 video. Hiring that many Phantoms can rack up quite a bill. We had a solution, and the end-product shows. Here is a 2D teaser of the magnificent shots captured by Falk Eggert on our Phantom Flex 4K.

Otherwise, here is a youtube video that showcases the 360 Video in all its glory:


“Through The Thick” wins Best Documentary Award

We shot this documentary in the Shamwari Game Reserve in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa over the course of 5 days. Highspeedworx teamed up with Nino Leitner from Cinema5D in co-operation with G-Technology and ZEISS as well as Foma Systems to highlight the plight of rhino’s in South Africa. We joined forces with a local production company Hungry Bison Films based in Shamwari Game Reserve, which handled the logistics and back-end of the shoot.


Our Phantom Flex 4K was mostly mounted on the new ARRI Maxima Gimbal, which allowed us to do tracking shots, as well as be more mobile and ready to shoot wildlife on the go.

So far, the documentary has racked up two awards for Best Documentary and we couldn’t be more proud of each crew member that put every effort into making this a reality.
