3/17/2015 ISO 1200 Magazine 0 Comments


The highly-anticipated film Racing Extinction (racingextinction.com) made its Colorado debut at the 2015 Boulder International Film Festival (biff1.com). Racing Extinction, directed by Academy Award-winner Louie Psihoyos (The Cove), is a project of the Oceanic Preservation Society (OPS) that features an unlikely team of activists and innovators that hatch a bold mission to save endangered species. To illuminate the documentary's important mission, the festival brought the 'undercover mobile eco-projection' vehicle from the film to inspire the communities of Denver and Boulder.

Balcony Nine Media were asked to film the car's special visit and created this video for BIFF's Closing Night to recap the experience. The custom Tesla Model S (teslamotors.com) made for the film is a modified electric car designed and engineered by Obscura Digital.




The state of the art technology includes an electroluminescent paint job from Darkside Scientific, a FLIR (forward looking infrared) camera that enables visualization of C02 emissions and a customized video system that projects clips and images of threatened species on large-scale surfaces. To spread the word and share your sightings, use the hashtags #RacingExtinction and #ProjectingChange.
