Filming the LEGO Technic Liebherr R9800


What an experience to get to work on a film for LEGO on their newest toy.

This was amazing to experience first hand what it’s like to be apart of one of their big ideas and experiments, To remote control a full size R9800 using only Lego toy parts and their iPhone App.

Everything was kept loose and we had to be ready to go at a moments notice.

I ran multiple BlackMagicdesign URSA Mini 4.6K cameras with the help of Darren Burns andShreyash.

We also mounted a couple of GoPros to the under carriage of the R9800 and a couple on the cabin so we could capture all the action as it happened.

1x URSA mini ran on a DJI ronin and easy rig and we had a DJI Phantom 4 Pro flying during the operation.

Being in the mine pit, Power was out issue, so we had a generator and as many V mounts as possible on hand to continually charge and rotate over the cameras to keep them powering on.
