"New Dad State of Mind"

After a few months of talking about it we spent the last few weeks shooting this music video parody. Many other parodies of Jay Z's "Empire State of Mind" have centered around regions of the country and of course Star Wars. We took the experience of being a new dad and added a beat.

The tech details:
2 days of shooting. Shot on a Canon 7D, Edited on Final Cut Pro and it was my first experience with LED lights, which were nice and cool to work around.
