Adrenalin complete post production on new promo for Speedway

Adrenalin @ Rushes have just completed post production work on the impressive promo for Speedway's new single, 'Genie In A Bottle', a version of the tune first recorded by Christina Aguilera.
The promo opens with close up shots of lead singer and guitarist Jill Jackson. As the camera pans round we see that the band is performing on the floor of an old-fashioned, high sided, circular, indoor motorcycle racing arena. High above them, an enthusiastic crowd drums its approval on the side of the arena. A man mounts a motorbike and forcefully kick starts the machine. With a roar it comes to life and he is soon whizzing around the arena, apparently defying gravity in the process. As the band blasts out the music the solitary biker is joined by others. With each lap the number of bikes and the speed with which they travel seems to increase, so much so that drummer Jim Duguid has to duck as one bike flies past. As the music reaches a crescendo a member of the crowd jumps down to join the band. He has clearly started a trend as the rest of the audience joins him. Shots taken for all angles show the frenzied, dancing fans, all of whom are completely immersed in the music, as they engulf the band.
Rushes said: "Due to the obvious danger from the bike riders, sections of the band's performance were shot against green screen so that we could comp plates of bike action behind them. The crowd were also added as an extra plate for these dangerous shots."
