I’ve always tinkered with the idea of making local running footage of cars for commercials that I do. The opportunity presented itself when Rick Hill Imports wanted some video for their website. We met and discussed filming different models of vehicles around various Tri-Cities landmarks.
Geared up with the new Ronin-S and my trusty a6500 (nice and light on the Ronin), I filmed almost all of the running footage from the bed of a Tacoma pickup while Martin Baker drove the truck and CJ Hill drove the vehicles. Timing was everything and both Martin and CJ did a great job with that! Timing the sunshine, well that wasn’t always perfect but good enough.
The drone shots are from the Mavic Pro and interior dealership shots with the FS7.
One unique thing is that CJ and his friend Josh Kelley composed, arranged and performed the music track!
