A part of the Electrified Power business’ “Feel the Energy” recruitment campaign, the video was created in hopes engineers and other creators will see a younger version of themselves in the story, shaping their own destiny.
The scenes were shot on location at the Cummins Pilot Center in Columbus, Indiana and in a garage in Indianapolis, Indiana. The crew filmed over two days with the Arri Alexa XT and Zeiss Standard Speed lenses. The garage scene was fully built out from a bare white wall empty garage.
