The Last Stand
Our Escalade and Edge Crane Sytem followed the chase through the cornfields and streets of Albuquerque to capture the action in director, Jee-woon Kim’s “The Last Stand.” In many of the chase scenes the Corvette was remotely operated from above by stunt driver, Robert Nagle, while Eduardo Noriega took care of the acting from inside with another Remote Drive System on top of the Camaro.
The Biscuit Jr. was used to film the chase scene on the 6th Street Bridge for the movie, “In Time.”
With Justin Timberlake and Amanda Syfried inside the car, stunt driver Robert Nagle,
controlled the steering from a remote drive system out of the camera’s eye.
Legendary cinematographer Roger Deakins
was quoted in the November 2011 issue of American Cinematographer-
“We used the Biscuit system with the Jaguar to really zig-zag through traffic and put the audience and
the actors right in the middle of the action,” says Deakins.
“With no external lighting and the actors behind
the wheel, you really get a sense of the action. I’d never worked with the rig before and it was great.”
Our Biscuit Jr. became the star in the movie,
“DRIVE” thanks to a shout out by
Stunt Coordinator-Darrin Prescott.
The equipment was used to perform many of the action scenes
while Ryan Gosling is at the wheel appearing to orchestra reverse 180s
and other action sequences while the stunt driver, Robert Nagle,
completes the actual driving from a side mounted Remote Drive System.
