I'm preparing to shoot a commercial involving a toy car race track with Loop-the-loops, jumps, etc. The storyboards call for POV shots of the car on the track. The toy cars are maybe twice the size of Hot Wheels cars. This footage is to be intercut with the rest of the commercial which will be shot with a regular camera (Arri or Red).
How would one go about capturing these POV shots? My idea was to try to get one or two of the toy cars and modify them to mount a GoPro on, low enough so that it doesn't become top heavy and topples over in the track, and shoot at a minimum of 60fps to get as much detail as possible in the fast moving parts of the track.
Any other idea? Is there a better camera to do this?
