It's pretty awesome that each member of the band has his or her own signature video-game moves in the video for "Dum Dum Dah Dah" (my favorites are James' on-the-ground forcefield drumroll and just getting to watch Jen kick butt in general), but what's really kind of amazing is the fact that David Nghiem apparently dreams in a video-game format.
Also, watch for Tyler Hopkins and Tanner Blair, who are probably the two most convincing bad guys I never would have considered to be bad guys. And there just can't be enough said about how fun-loving and silly Roberts' stop-motion stuff is. Be sure to check out "Battle of the Bonds," too, if you haven't already.
Local filmmaker, musician team up to shoot a video on a camera that fits in your pocket.
Kyle Roberts is at it again.
You may recall the filmmaker from one of the year’s flat-out best local music video, for The Nghiems’ pixilated dreamy, poppy “Dum Dum Dah Dah.”
Or maybe it’s from his hilarious, attention-grabbing stop-motion work on “Battle of the Bonds.” Either way, he’s returned to the Internet by teaming up with Chase Kerby’s pretty, new alt-rockish act, Defining Times, to film a video completely on a GoPro HD Hero 2, a camera so small you can pretty much take it anywhere. In this case, it looks like Kerby and Roberts chose a local park.
Watch the happy-go-lucky, skater-boy video for “Limelight,” and listen to the band’s EP below:
