This TV commercial was directed by Raf Wathion and was shot over five days at a studio in Brussels.
Four sets were running simultaneously including Phantom, Alexa, Macro and Stop-Motion cameras.
Practical SFX on this job concentrated on the idea of curves; the ideal curve of Infiniti. The many effects were intended to be shot at high-speed using the Phantom generating large amounts of practical special-effects material.
Two layers of oil
Tests made as we cut the surface; a layer of white oil floats on a layer of purple oil.
Reference shots, at 300fps. and 600fps, made using the rope wave machine and tests made by hand.
