(Valley Cottage, New York--October 25, 2012) During the workday of British lighting cameraman Mark Moreve, there is never a dull moment. From commercials to documentaries, his projects encompass a variety of formats for diverse private and TV productions. In addition to BBC and Sky, his references include many other renowned customers. For his work, Moreve travels across the globe from Mongolia to Argentina within only a few days. This is hard on him as well as on the equipment. That is why he relies on the Deca Dr. Bag (PC005) by Petrol Bags, a part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company.

Cool and calm before the shoot
"Thanks to the robust construction of the Deca Dr. Bag, I can rely on it 100% and know my equipment will arrive undamaged at the shooting location. This is especially important when it comes to sensitive electronics," reports Moreve. The seven-layer protection system made of various materials provides a stable housing, which even absorbs strong jolts so that the bag secures its contents and the equipment remains undamaged. "This certainty makes my work easier before I even arrive, and I can devote my undivided attention to the organization of the set. On location, this is nearly impossible as the schedule is usually very tight."
Quick operation on set
Unexpected events such as weather changes or an absent crew member can quickly upset the shooting schedule. On those days, Moreve particularly appreciates his equipment. "I consciously chose the Deca Dr. Bag by Petrol Bags because the form is the same as that of a doctor's bag. With a turn of the hand, the large opening on the top makes all of the equipment visible, and you have immediate access to each piece-- just like a doctor during emergency treatment of a patient." Thanks to the integrated LED lighting system in the inner pocket, the bag also offers the same easy access even during dark lighting conditions. Located in the inner pocket, the LED lighting is space-saving, battery-operated, and does not give off heat, which could damage the camera.
Safe and sound from location to location
After shooting, the equipment is once again quickly stowed in the bag. The large format offers sufficient space for a camera with a mattebox and an attached microphone as well as for rain covers, camera plates, and cables. "The padded interior provides additional protection for my equipment. The camera bags by Petrol Bags are perfect for constant transport of high-quality equipment. Normally, the equipment is put under a lot of strain due to frequent movement and jolts. With the Deca Dr. Bag, I was able to avoid this kind of wear and tear. That's why I'll continue to trust this brand," concludes Moreve.
