[VIDEO] C8 Corvette Model Used for Art Project Commissioned for Chevy's Find New Roads Magazine


If you hadn’t already read the headline or seen the “giant” hand reach down and pick up the car, we bet you would have thought this was a real C8 Corvette roaring through the fog.

Obviously, this video is not real, but a very realistic illusion that was created by Mexican photographer Felix Hernandez, one of five artists recently commissioned by Chevrolet to create all-original artwork inspired by the C8 for its Find New Roads lifestyle magazine sent out to new owners.

Hernandez used a 1:18 scale model of a C8 Stingray and a 24mm probe lens normally used for creating macro images and video at very close range to make his video.

He placed the mini-Corvette on a mini-treadmill that had been painted to look like an airport runway, then created the illusion of a “foggy” night with a fog machine while a small handheld light wand with red LEDs produced authentic-looking taillights.

“I really enjoyed working on this project,” Hernandez says. “I had plenty of liberty to create and experiment with new things I had never done before. And even better, I was able to do it using a motorsports icon like the Corvette!”

Chevy also called on other artists for the project, including Jae Martin, a New York street artist whose pop art-inspired creation was done on a 36-inch by 48-inch wood panel, and Jacquie Comrie, a Toronto multidisciplinary artist whose unique digital illustration focused on color and contrast.
