Pete Kjeer, Senior Mechanical and Systems Lab Engineer at Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (Harvard SEAS), demonstrates his motorcycle lift with the assistance of Anas Chalah and Christie Gilliland. 13 September 2012.

The lift is designed to lift 300 lbs. with 30 lbs. of force applied on the lever.

Pete was presenting this as part of a course introduction at Harvard SEAS, where I work with Pete and Anas. I was filming this primarily to practice with a borrowed video camera before my next shoot. What a fun surprise! FYI, just before the lever moved, Anas was saying, "Don't kill me!"

FIlmed and edited by Christie Gilliland. 16 September 2012, Cambridge, Massachusetts. Minimal editing to raw footage; used Final Cut Pro X. My first solo video!
