Al Petri and Son's - Go ride commercial // GH5 and Quasar Science

Over the spring we filmed a work for trade piece for Al Petri and Son's in Southeast Michigan. Petri's is a multiple generation owned bicycle shop located in Lincoln Park and Woodhaven Michigan. Find them at petribikes.com

 

We wanted to make a video about escaping the daily stressors and venturing out on your own with a new bike.

 

We filmed the entire piece using both Fujiflm X-H1 and GH5 in DCI 4k. Sigma 18-35 canon mount with a Viltrox EF-M2 adapter for the GH5 and a 23mm 1.4 lens for the Fujifilm. The Fujifilm is used only with the table close ups in the introduction.  Both cameras do an admirable job of being small enough to use handheld and having excellent in body stabilization for quickly changing framing. We used Quasar Science tubes to tuck into corners in order to provide a very natural light. Find them here (https://www.quasarscience.com/) We tucked 4ft and 2ft tubes into corners of the kitchen and family room to accent the already present window light.

To film the car scene we used the rear hatch of a ford flex and mounted a tripod in the back seat and used the cameras IBIS coupled with the panasonic 35-100 OIS to provide a natural and stable looking image.
