LED cars

From the initial electrical design, through the build in a secet London location and finally to choreographing LED cars on stage in conjunction with the likes of Colin Sangster and stunt drivers such as Chris Burns, Chris Morena,  Feeding the Fish have created something super special with their 6 LED cars. These have been featured in Top Gear Live with Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May, The BBC TV annual Showcase as well as the touring Fast and Furious Live.

 

Cars appear to be shimmering with glitter or rippling with flames’, The Guardian

‘Feeding the Fish carried out the stunning LED programming on the cars which is the visual cherry on top’, Andy Clarke, RMS Motoring

‘The latest audio and visual technology, complementing the spectacular driving scenes with state-of-the-art 3D projection and striking LED-clad cars’, Evo Magazine

“You’ll spot the R34 GT-R, another Supra, an S2000 and the glorious Mazda RX-7, resplendent in LED lighting. Maybe bring some sunglasses to the show.” Top Gear BBC TV

“One of the most dramatic performances then takes place – a technology-filled recreation of the opening street race from the first sequel, 2 Fast 2 Furious. Four seemingly white cars, namely a Honda S2000, Mazda RX-7, Nissan Skyline and Toyota Supra, enter the arena. After the traffic lights change, the cars suddenly start to glow with their liveries from the film, courtesy of a ‘skin’ of LED lights. In a breathtaking display combining exceptional driving and technical calibration, the fast-paced street race is reprised right in front of the audience’s eyes.

The spectacular scene doesn’t end there, though, because each of the cars interacts with the 3D projection mapping, adopting new liveries and eventually finishing in a retina-searing glittery finish that stuns the crowd. The effect is unlike anything seen before, and is made possible only by the LED technology and the 3D projections that have been developed by the team behind Fast & Furious Live.” Auto Express

“As mentioned after rehearsals, the 2 Fast 2 Furious sequence with the LED effects is perhaps the best bit of the show. There really has been nothing else like it in terms of preparing cars for a show before, and makes for genuinely unmissable action when combined with the driving. Heck is it all very clever.” Piston Heads
