Taking centre stage in Fast Girls A Camera Corps Standard Tracking System takes centre stage in the film Fast Girls scheduled for UK release on 15 June. The film charts the rollercoaster journey of a British female sprint relay team as its members strive to qualify for a major world athletics championship. Fast Girls is financed by BFI Film Fund, Studiocanal and Aegis, and developed by the UK Film Council. Ealing Metro is handling international sales.  “Camera Corps’ tracking camera systems are an iconic element of high- 12 | TV-BAY MAGAZINE profile sports broadcasts, says Fast Girls Art Director Jonnie Elf. “They allow remotely controlled cameras to capture close-up follow-shots of contestants at critical stages in a race. Television viewers see the output from the camera but rarely get to see the track and camera itself. In this case, our objective was to include the tracking system as an integral element of the set to supplement the real experience of participating in a major racing event.” The accompanying image shows a Camera Corps Standard Tracking System as used in the film Fast Girls and at many of the world’s largest sports events. www.cameracorps.co.uk
