TRS Brussels and director Benjamin Lacour tapped Fixer to produce this film for French/Belgian bank Crédit Agricole, featuring Belgian Olympic Team members (and twin brothers) Jonathan and Kevin Borlée. Shot in Austin, TX in mid March, we timed our shoot to the development of the crops. Also needing a pine forest, we took advantage of the diversity of the locations surrounding this amazing city.
Home to filmmakers such as Terrance Malick and Robert Rodriguez, Austin has a long history as a film location. There is a deep pool of crew and plenty of equipment to choose from. For this film, we needed to get the camera up high to show off the epic locations while also moving swiftly across bumpy grounds. Along with DoP Patrick Otten, we decided to use the 73’ Hydroscope mounted on the Ultra Maverick from Chapman Leonard. This proved to be a wise choice as we were never limited in our camera positions.
