BUFFALO, N.Y. -- A vehicle painted with bright designs tearing through areas of Buffalo and performing wild stunts last month was not something to call the police about.
It was a stunt shoot that is part of a popular short internet film series shot in cities around the world, called GYMKHANA NINE.
Time Clark, Film Commissioner of Buffalo Niagara Film Office, said they came to Buffalo for, "a gritty, industrial look."
Specifically, the film includes shots at the South Park Lift Bridge, Port of Buffalo and the Central Terminal. Shots were also taken at an Eden train crossing.
Clark said his office paid for street closures, police, rescue divers and a variety of other safety measures.
The short film was meant to be used as promotional material for their sponsors, Clark added.
The video shoot involved Hoonigan Racing Division, a motor racing team that competes in the World Rally Championship among other international racing competitions. It is based in Los Angeles.
