BRIGHTON, Mich - Scott Waugh, director of the film "Need for Speed", took a genuine approach when it came to filming his latest movie. The Ford Mustang Performs Real Stunts in the Need for Speed Movie rather than giving computer-generated images all the credit. Waugh was a former stuntman himself and recognizes how an understanding of the law of physics plays a huge part in telling the story on camera. When physics are not parallel with the characters and storyline, it can take away from a film's authenticity.
Computer-generated images are great for superhero, science fiction or fantasy films, but Scott Waugh thought that utilizing the resources available to him would be much more effective. Seven modified 2014 Ford Mustangs were used for filming and were strategically set up to ensure the most safety while shooting. The crew used more than 40 different digital cameras to capture images of the 2014 Ford Mustang to successfully convince the audience the actors were really driving. For on-the-road sequences, a Supercharged 2013 Mustang GT was used as a camera car to capture close-in action shots to give viewers the true feeling of intense speed.
When it came to really getting behind the wheel, all of the actors were required to go through an intensive training at Willow Springs International Motorsports Park in California. There they learned how to handle the Mustang when drifting around corners and how to hit exact marks when driving. Of course, professional stunt drivers handled the complex shots, one even by the name of Vaughn Gittin Jr. Gittin was a champion drifter and could easily fling the all-new 2015 Mustang and place it exactly where Scott Waugh wanted it.
