A NASCAR race as a movie? Presenting Phoenix, in black and white

Ever wonder how a NASCAR race day might look if it was shot like an actual movie? Wonder no more.

NASCAR Digital and NASCAR Productions set out to do just that last weekend at ISM Raceway in Phoenix. After being inspired by Oscar-winning director Alfonso Cuarón and his film Roma, our crew captured the essence of a race day in a similar style as the innovative Cuarón.

Watch the movie below, or head to our YouTube channel to check it out.

The story of race day was told with long continuous shots, and we let scenes will play out naturally in the lens’ frame. For that extra special touch, the entire video is in black and white.
