    I'm not sure that it is new or not, but I'm impressed :D


    The Los Angeles-based sketch comedy group Mommy created this humorous 6.5-minute “behind-the-scenes video” about the world’s first feature film that was shot entirely with a Toyota Prius backup camera.

    “The Prius backup camera is the only camera that is able to run a person over,” says director Mateo St. Portugal. “Other cameras do not run them over because they are not cars.”

    I realize this is all tongue-firmly-in-cheek but, no, camera cars have been around since the earliest days of movie making. Here's the latest version that goes one step further: it also becomes the talent. Watch the video for a better understanding: Those perfect cars you see in TV ads? Here's the Mad Max machine underneath the CGI

    Great post. How did they get the video out to record it? Or is it all a "spoof"?

    At segment 1:31 you can appreciate a go-pro camera mounted on the rear bumper.
    The Prius 2nd generation rear view camera doesn't have any satisfactory video resolution for video production filming.
