two Nikon D90’s, Lensbabies, Muse and Composer, tele and wide angle attachments, 17-35mm, 70-200mm and 24-70mm and a bunch of Arri lights. Studio tripod with fluid head, and Merlin steadycam. If you like what you hear, You can check their music here.
The official release date for the album is July 28th, 2009.
Thanks for watching!

  1. That was pretty good! You and the band both. :)

    For your next music video with these guys, make it a concept video & add that cute brunette pixie model.
