Early 2022 we were being asked to work on a film production for RedBull racing for their promotional video for the Formula 1 race in Spa Francorchamps 2022 with Max Verstappen. Earlier that year, RedBull also launched their video for the promotion of the F1 race in Miami with Sergio Perez. The production of this film with Max Verstappen was in the hands of Magenta films, a production house that like us, is also based in Amsterdam.

Below you can find the behind-the-scenes video that was also made by Magenta and show the complexity of this crazy RedBull video with the title, ‘From sim to reality’. The video shows all the camera teams, drones, helicopter, and RB7 formula 1 car that was involved in this video and exclusive behind-the-scenes interviews with Max Verstappen himself.
