It seems that this week is release week for F1 team marketing efforts. First there was the Ferrari video and now we have the Red Bull movie. This wonderful short film features the Red Bull and Toro Rosso team mates, along with a cast of thousands (well, maybe hundreds) in this medieval themed extravaganza. Unfortunately the producers seem to have gotten the sound effects wrong. Now don’t get me wrong, the sound is stunning, they’ve just placed the emphasis in the wrong place. In the Ferrari video, the sweet sounds of combustion make the scenes work. In the Red Bull movie, the ambient sounds are movie quality, but they’ve almost downplayed the sound of the actual cars. It’s a small criticism, but I think they could have edited more soul into the driving scenes.
Enough petty bitching. On to the video after the break.
