For shots like that you need a REALLY long boom, and a wide lens as well, then you need to correct the distortion in PS.

I have a 20 ft rig and a 16. I didn't feel like i needed to use the longer one. I agree with you on the distortion.
This was the first attempt. I haven't seen it done before, I'm sure it has been but i wanted to try it myself.
I'm happy with the results.

That's much better, less side. Rig-shots from the side simply don't have the impact, for several reasons, but one of them is the inherent distortion for sure. The shot you're trying to do has to be done very differently. Look to the major manufacturers for this type of shot, which they do as VR, or rolling. You really need to be nearly above the vehicle to make these side shots work (like in the link below).

Doing the normal down-low angle tends to work against you when you're shooting a lot of side.

More front = down low
More side = up high

An exception might be a Lamborghini, where the cabin is so small that if you shoot it low the cabin all but disappears. Lambo's always look better shot high, and from the rear, as the engine lid is really the money shot.

What do you guys carry your booms in? I have the 20 ft. Rig pro and need a better transport method than the box it came with.

I got a big square of canvas, sewed some loops into it and then I roll them all up. Works really well.

Ski bags work best, you can pick up a cheap one for $49 if you look around.

Bat sh*t crazy...

Take a slightly mental 964 RS and race prep it, yessss.

This thing is epic, nut and bolt restoration, looks and sounds superb, but it will brake every bone in your body if you drive it to the shops to get milk!

Porsche 964 RSR – not much good for shopping but will kick ass on the race track.

Rig is a bastard child ali and carbon set up, 3 suckers for extra hold and a sail for a bit of extra stabilisation.
