Impala Featured in Sound and Picture Article About “Valibation”

The first time we took the new Impala out was for an exciting independent short film directed by Todd Strauss-Schulson, called “Valibation”. The crew worked very quickly and was able to get a ton of great shots in a very short time. Sound and Picture magazine was out to cover the shoot and the article featured a great behind-the-scenes video of the impala in action. The director was really happy with the rig and thanked Pacific Motion in the interview. The article also features some great behind-the-scenes pictures of the creature effects used in the short film.

Check out the article here.
