Is this the ultimate Production Vehicle?
 
...or is this completely nuts? How do *you* drive your IMAX gear around?

That is fantastic! What a hoot!

I don't know the two gents in the article, but I have worked with that production company on an IMAX film some years ago--yup, IMAX on Steadicam. It was the "little" camera, the 8-perf Iwerks--only 45 lbs (plus rig=80lbs+). They were a great bunch of guys, very enjoyable experience. Never saw the film, though. Thankfully, the subject matter was a bit more sedate than rushing into tornadoes...jeez!

If I were a superhero, I think that would be my car.

Wow, maybe a Sherman tank would be the ultimate camera platform! Replace that gun barrel with a lens mount! :)

Listening to JohnBoy and Billy on the radio one morning, and they had a tornado chaser building something like this. He was even auctioning off rides in it, chasing said tornados...

This is just the thing to use to cover the next presidential political conventions.
