REFLECTION: Chas Christiansen for MASH

Mash & Chas put together another dinger of a video. And shot and edited it all on an iPhone.

As artists, we look for tools that allow us to create looks in the recording of light that continue to celebrate bikes and their riders. This new project is an experiment in polarizing reflective light. With support from Apple, we wanted to shoot a video with equipment that is accessible to a large population of the modern world. The best camera you own is the one you have with you, and the smart phone is in your pocket day after day. We used two ExoLens Zeiss wide angle lenses and one B+W circular polarizer mounted to a Movi M5 gimbal. We recorded through the MoviePro app to create a camera rig that shoots duplicate images, with one camera recording all reflectivity, and the second camera, with the polarizer, blocking all the reflective light in the scene. By editing between the two recordings, we created an effect that feels like the cyclist is powering his bike and clothing through the energy he puts into his pedals.

Leader Bikes x Vans NIght Shift

Check out this new installment from Leader Bikes and Vans.

“Dark and quite, figures lurking in the shadows, the night ride out begins! In collaboration with Vans, the night ride out will take you down the darkest streets to show you who and what is waiting for you. In a blink of an eye the streets become yours, the night dew keeping you cool and street lamps leading the way. A swift sound of keeping the rubber side down, sirens in the distance and the forward motion of the nights ride. Didn’t you know all the strange things come out at night, are you out?”

Road To Redhook

“Road to RedHook tags along with 4 talented women as they gear up for the 2nd year of the Women’s RedHook crit–a fast, competitive bike race in Brooklyn, New York.
Anyone can look pro with some good glasses and fancy spandex, but the interviews uncover these girls to be sweet, funny, hopeful, and above all– totally human. The participants involved with this video want to remind all those hopefuls out there that sometimes the hardest part of racing is just getting to the starting line.”
