FORD v FERRARI [2019] - With Malte Sarnes 

What did RSP do on Ford v Ferrari?

RSP helped to recreate one of the most thrilling events in the history of auto racing for Ford v Ferrari, a film from 20th Century Fox and Director James Mangold. The studio produced 223 visual effects shots for the film, the majority for an 8-minute sequence depicting the first “24 Hours of Daytona” race in 1966. We created a historically-accurate, digital replica of the famous speedway and filled it with cheering fans.
