The Line is a collective of directors that specialize in short films. In their most recent video they combine candid video footage with some carefree hipster animated characters. Watch "Amaro and Walden’s Joyride" as they tear up the streets of London.
The majority of the footage is captured using GoPro cameras mounted to a set of two identical RC cars with posable camera mounts attached. A third car without any mounts was used for the wide-angle shots and was captured with a Canon 5D on some motion controlled tracks. After a week of constant shooting, the footage was then handed off to animation and postproduction. Here they used the candid footage to build a storyline with Amaro and Waldren reacting and interacting to the world around them. Because the majority of the footage was unplanned footage of people reacting to an RC car, they had to work in a backwards manner in order to mold the story and the character's reactions to form with the footage that was captured.
