Video Camera Crew in Munich for Self-Driving Car Film


Let me walk you through a recent video production journey we went on. You know how it is with filming, sometimes things don’t go as planned, but we always find a way to make it work. This story is all about that – overcoming challenges and getting the job done, no matter what.

ACREW4U provided a video camera crew and a gaffer in Munich to help with the first video. Then, they had to send another person, a self shooter, the next week to film some extra shots of a BMW self-driving car because a certain feature didn’t work properly.

Their mission?

The mission of this shoot was to produce a series of videos featuring BMW’s self-driving car. The team faced challenges with the storyboard alignment and had to overcome unexpected issues with the car’s features by capturing additional shots to ensure a comprehensive portrayal of the vehicle’s capabilities.

Challenge: Identifying the Right Approach for Filming

So, we had this storyboard for the third video we were working on. It seemed like a good fit, but you never really know until you start filming. Our challenge was to figure out if this storyboard was indeed the right one to bring to life on screen.

The Solution:

To tackle this, we decided to dive in and give it a shot. We provided a gaffer for the initial video shoot, someone who’s great with lighting and setting the mood for the scene. But as filming progressed, we realized we needed some extra shots to cover a feature malfunction in the BMW self-driving car.

Challenge: Capturing Additional Shots for the BMW Self-Driving Car Feature

This unexpected issue with the self-driving car threw a bit of a curveball our way. We needed to film some pickup shots to make sure we covered everything we needed for the video to be complete.

The Solution:

To solve this problem, we decided to bring in a self-shooter the following week. This person could handle the camera and capture the shots we needed without needing a whole production crew. It was a quick and efficient solution to ensure we got the footage required to tell the full story of the BMW self-driving car, despite the unexpected hiccup.


In the end, everything came together seamlessly. Despite the initial uncertainty with the storyboard and the unexpected malfunction with the self-driving car feature, we adapted and found solutions every step of the way. It’s all part of the excitement and challenge of video production, and it’s moments like these that make the final product even more rewarding.
