In a recent campaign for MAC (Motor Accident Commission), body painting artist Emma Hack had the unique opportunity to paint several bodies into the shape of a crashed automobile.

The campaign was meant to bring attention to the many low-level speeding accidents that happen and how we all play a part in road safety. Emma chose to recreate a crashed car using the bodies of 17 men and women covered in five layers of intricate body paint. The shoot took just over 18 hours to complete and the end result is stupendous.

Models conformed and balanced on each other to create the shape of the car and, in this behind-the-scenes video, you get a glimpse of just how much work went into bringing more awareness to this cause.
