Gumball 3000 Print Shoot
We were contacted to source talent for a Gumball 3000 Print Shoot for one of the major sponsors. We had only a few days to pull it together but luckily everything fell into place. The print ad campaign was shot at the shipping yard in Vallejo, CA where the cars were being worked on. The red and yellow Z/28 Camaro’s will be used in the actual 2015 Gumball 3000 rally later this May.
The Gumball 3000 http://www.gumball3000.com/ is a rally that spans nearly 3000 miles across two continents and a few countries. The rally riders are required to pay the entry fee and will drive together in their vehicles through Europe, stopping three times, then fly to the United States where they will stop in three major cities until they end in fabulous Las Vegas.
For this specific client we sourced one Caucasian model and one Asian model as they have two different brands the talent will be representing. There was an artist was on site to assist with hair, makeup and wardrobe as well.
The team was large as lights, wind machines, fog machines and smoke machines needed talent on deck to move around as the light changed and the vehicles were moved.
Although only 2 of the Camaro Z/28’s will be used for the rally, the client was able to secure a third for a few photos as well. The contrasting colors and industrial setting were perfect for the Gumball 3000 Print Shoot.
After the San Francisco Gumball 3000 Print Shoot models were ready, they were added to the set for double and single photos. There was a videographer there, too, that will pin together clips to make an edgy behind the scenes montage.
Although there are less than 200 cars that typically enter the Gumball 3000 rally, it gains publicity from car enthusiasts worldwide. In previous years publications like Maxim, CNN and the like reported on the story. Because of the cost involved with partaking in the Gumball 3000, the majority of entrants have graced Forbes magazine for notoriety due to their success in their particular industry. Those that drive the 3000+ miles are rubbing elbows with some of the worlds movers, shakers and decision makers.
