Le Mans Highlight film 2011

Hardly any other motorsport event electrifies the fans as much as the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Fighting for every second. Concentration around the clock. It is probably the world’s most demanding long-distance race.

Also for our entire crew it was a true endurance race. Our 30 crew members worked for 30 hours non-stop in order not to miss even a second. It was also the first endurance test for the then brand new ARRI ALEXA cameras, thus, our material became an important part of the Hollywood documentation “Truth in 24 II“.
