Forza Motorsport 5 FilmSpeed promo turns a McLaren 12C supercar into the world's coolest zoetrope
Microsoft, Turn 10 and McLaren have partnered to create one of the coolest promo videos for a game we've ever seen. Using a McLaren 12C supercar, one of the world's fastest production road vehicles, racing and stunt driver Tanner Foust whizzed around a track in Birmingham, Alabama, with a HD camera strapped to the roof.
It filmed individual aluminium boards situated on the edge, each of which featured one frame of a Forza 5 animated sequence. The speed and capture of the frames formed a zoetrope-style effect, with the billboards animating as the scenery zipped past. It's really something to behold.
Forza Motorsport 5 will be out for Xbox One as a launch title on 22 November. Day One editions of the game will come with three exclusive cars and liveries.
