Nissan Nismo Project 370Z live now!

The NISMO project 370Z was born when VitaBrevisFilms decided to take their custom Nismo and see how quickly they could destroy it in the streets of downtown SLC. A few crashes, sets of tires, and a near head on collision with the Phantom Flex attached, Project 370Z is simply raw car devastation at its finest. Sorry to whoever ended up buying this car after we shot this…
Produced: VBF
Directed by: Skylar Nielsen

High speed: Mark Weiler

Two new films released today!

It’s a BIG Friday at VBF! we are proud to release two new projects today! and both of which just so happen to involve Motorcycles….
The first is a project we had a chance to shoot this summer in Southern India. The shoot took place along the coast between Chennai and Pondicherry. An eye opening experience for all involved. Enjoy!

The second project took place in Milwaukee at the Harley-Davidson headquarters to celebrate the 110th anniversary of the Harley-Davidson Motorcycle company. We all breathed in a unhealthy amount of rubber smoke, and Lance was picking pieces of tire out of his eyes and hair for weeks. Check it out on Harley’s youtube page!
