Commando Lock Brand Story
Added on 11/27/2019
Commando Lock Co is a padlock manufacturer creating military grade padlocks right here in the USA. This project was shot on RED Cinema Cameras using Cooke Mini S4's. Using the great features of the Cookes in conjunction with light tube placement and a hazer, we were able to capture some wonderful images of this companies process.
