Shot over two days in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA with a Canon T1i and Magic Lantern firmware. Basically Justin and I drank a bunch of coffee at Alterra and brainstormed the basic plot, mapping out locations based on sections of the song, then spent the next two days shooting various adventures. The footage was then assembled bit by bit over the next few months in Adobe Premier. Most clips were left as shot, with a few time adjustments and minimal color correction.
The T1i turned into a pretty great video camera with the Magic Lantern firmware, though it took a while to get used to the labyrinth of menus. Most of the footage was shot using a Canon EFS 40mm lens, with the telephoto shots using an old adapted Tamron lens and some of the tipi shots using the kit lens.
Needed for the next shoot: multiple cameras and a steadycam.
