All The Cliches At A Fraction Of The Size: Check Out This Chase Scene Filmed With Remote Control Car

If you've seen enough action movie car chase scenes, you probably know what to expect at this point: souped up sports cars skidding through the corners, lots of inconveniently placed cafe tables and roadworks that get destroyed during the chase, and helicopters tracking every move the cars make.

Well, this car chase sequence has all of those things.

The difference is, it was all shot with remote control cars (and remote control helicopters).

The video was directed by Aaron B and Zach King of Final Cut King, and it's a great example of how editing and sound design can work together to bring even the most obvious fake sets to life.

All the buildings in the piece were made out of cardboard, spray paint and hot glue.

For more about how they pulled it off, check out their behind the scenes video:
