The Baloon Maker
The Balloon Maker video was shot in our home town of Denton, TX. It was a special video for us to make due to the process and collaboration with Jason. Jason came down and spent the week here, helping to develop the idea for the video, in addition to filming and directing.
We wanted to do something that was completely different from the lyrical content of the song, so Tim and I created a story that was more sci-fi in nature. With the added element of Jason's cinematography, including a black and white vignette effect, the haunting antiquity of the video evokes the feeling that you're watching something out of a cryptic vault from somewhere in time. - Eric Pulido
